4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Big hop flavors, citrus, tropical fruit on top of a velvety sweet malt base that keep everything well balanced. Little dangerous at 8.5% and being so smooth and easy to drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Alluring aroma is backed up by a full bodied flavour and nicely balanced bitter finish. A standout beer in one tasting session.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange/gold pour with a tight white head; similar in appearance to the bling but a bit less carbed. Tropical fruit aroma, pineapple, passionfruit, and malt underneath. Taste was a bit understated - I was expecting a bigger version of Bling, and it was that, but the bitterness was a bit underwhelming. Sweetish, overall fairly good, but just missing something

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very malt dominant - not enough hops for me - try Garage Project Pernicious Weed for a hoppy but not ball-tearing imperial IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark orange with a slightly tanned white head. Very sweet tropical aromas, largely of pineapple and grapefruit and some caramel sweetness. Excellent malt backbone to balance the hops. The best description I can come up with is a ’sticky’ sweetness. But this makes it delicious. Fruity, citrus and pine tastes also. A winner

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
First that element that strikes, no second - the label is a stand-out, is a strong wave of pineapple. And then underneath are the hops. Like the taste it isn't overly affected by the extra buds but has the citrus foundation. A pleasant initial on the tongue with orange and nice finish that gently lingers. A great IPA that doesn't throw a mouth grenade.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dark amber with a small beige head. Nose is sweet and tropical with some sticky toffee. Plenty of pineapple in this. A very resinous and pine driven brew, but missing that finesse or punch to make it very good

Bottle 330ml @Beer Hunters
Clear red color, small off-white head. Some citric hoppyness, a bit berryish aroma. Medium-bodied. Citrus, some fruityness but overall a bit dry. It’s a bit over 3 months old bottle but feels like could be freshier. No bling bling found.

33 cl bottle @ Leijuva Lahna, bottled 12.06.2013
Sweet and fruity aroma with caramel and mango. Flavour is sweet with caramel, exotic fruits, juicy notes and toffee. Quite heavy and a bit too sweet, not bad still. Reminds me of Nøgne Ø #500.
