3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at Buckman-Kerns Brewfest at EastBurn. Nice orangish golden color. Citrus hops and grapefruit aroma. First tasted slightly like lemon soap, but thankfully it became more citrusy and hoppy, with a sweet/bitter aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark copper color with a medium white head. A light malty nose, some tropical fruit. The flavor is sticky, sweet brown sugar, fruity, caramel, darker toffee, not a ton of hop flavors. Decent, just not anywhere near a good IIPA if you want big late boil flavors.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewpub. Big citrusy, grapefruit nose, with some toffee lurking behind. Coppery-gold, with lots of light carb rising. Very well-balanced overall. Thick, sticky body. Doesn’t really taste like it has such a high IBU level; the hops come out as more of a texture. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Saraveza’s IIPA Fest, double-dry hopped version. Pours an opaque, murky orange with a small white head. Aroma of dry piney hops, slight peach and mango, balanced well by caramel malt sweetness. Flavour of very dry piney hops, sort of muted notes, more dry hops, balanced by caramel malt sufficiently, but no sweetness comes through. Really dry and flavourful, finishing fruity and dry hop-like. Excellent.
