4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 33cl bottle. Nice looking clear amber beer with a minimal white head. Smells quite hoppy and fruity, which makes it’s appearance very welcoming. Interesting aromas of fruits, sugar and caramel. Tastes very hoppy, fresh and sweet in the beginning, but evolves quickly to a heavy bitter sweet and malty aftertaste which is quite strong, but nice. Also a bit warmish, but it’s mainly the bittersweetness that characterizes it’s lovely finish. Interesting beer in general. A nice IPA with an interesting look and taste. A bit dangerous if you consider that it appears as a quite drinkable beer, that hides its present alcohol (9.5%) very well. Despite that, a beer well worth the money if you like heavier IPA’s.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber body with minimal white head. Best aroma ever, huge fruity kick, mango, orange and pineapple. Hoppy, flowery, brown sugar. Heavy sweetness and some bitterness. Alcohol well hidden. No wonder, beside all this sweetness. Definitely too sweet for my taste, otherwise my total score would probably be even higher.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice piney hops all over the nose. First sip is really sweet, but not syrupy like some IIPAs can be. Hops come back on the finish, not as overpowering as I expected, but quite pleasant. Alcohol is hidden well, this is a dangerous brew.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
W aromacie uderza potęga chmielu, jest rześko a zarazem jest pełnia i bogactwo aromatu, grejpfrut, ananas, mango i pewnie masa innych owoców. W smaku pełne, słodkie z wysoką goryczką, ale wszystko wspaniale zbalansowane. Owoce tropikalne, lekkie przyprawy i zioła na finiszu. Alkohol mógłby być lepiej ukryty, ale tragedii nie ma. Doskonały, degustacyjny trunek.

Bottle 33 cl from Barleywine, CPH. Hazy dark orange with a yellowish head. Fudge, orange marmelade, quite sweet, candied fruit?. Medium body, medium carbonation, sweet finish. Way too sweet for my taste. Probably old bottle?

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Caramell and alcohol in the aroma with some fruitiness not much hops. Hazy orange white head. Malty sweet caramelly not what I expect from an IIPA. Full body low carbonation. It is to sweet and malty with not much hops, brewwd in march so It shouldn’t just be age, a dissapointement.
