4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hops, hops and hops, and some high abv sweetness . Take two hop loving brewers, and you would guess this beer would take like this, but it is beautifully balanced, and dangerously drinkable. Great stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught, BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush. Fresh batch (kegged 8 days prior to tasting).
Aroma of tropical fruits, caramel, toffee, pine, grapefruit. Rich orange/amber, clear, moderate off-white head that lasts reasonably. Big sweet caramel malt to start followed by rich fruits, then finishing long decent bitter. These hops are dank. Medium to full body, oily/sticky, moderate carb.
Have had this when it’s old and it’s a let down; so much better when it’s fresh!

Half from brew dog bar. Light amber with a small head. Incredibly fruity aroma with lychee, citrus peel and pine. Taste is sharp bitterness and lingering sour/sweetness. Prickly carbonation with medium body, alcohol heat as well. Very nice.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle 0.33l. Expected much more :-/. intermediate with aroma. Pretty clear solid gold colour with red reflection. Lightly. Not bitter as it is supposed to be. For me as it is imperial IPA, it is to sweet.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 33cL. Home. An orange beer with brown hues : gorgeous landscape. Medium white head. Good retention & lacing. Tropical fruity aroma, blackberry, resin. Light to heavy sugary sweet, then medium refreshing bitter. Medium body and texture, good carbonation, sweet finish with a bitter background. Overall, a good sweet>bitter ale, nice aroma. Weird but nice. I still prefer Hardcore IPA. I didn’t drink yet the Mikkeller original one.
