3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2016 Poured a clear golden mid-amber colour with a one- to two-finger off-white frothy head that retained very well and laced well. Aroma very nice and strong of pine, tropical fruits (passionfruit, mango), grapefruit, lemon and sweetish caramel malt. Taste of moderately sweet caramel malts but dominated by citrus/grapefruit and pine with hints of spice and tropical fruit; very strong hop presence and a long nice moderately biting bitterness. Light to medium body. Crisp and refreshing with a lingering strong nice bitterness on the finish. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Teku glass. Straw yellow/light orange, hazy with big white medium lastin head. Good lacing. Tropical fruits aroma (passion fruit, mango), sweet citrus hoppy aroma (mainly orange), some low pine and grassy aroma - mainly in the background, also noticable quite big malt backbone - caramel, bread, low biscuit. Moderate bitterness - noticable some pine, grassy and light herbal flavours, bitterness is moderate and not too long, it’s well balanced with sweetness and malty character. Definetely dry and bitter finish. Dry beer, medium body, medium carbonation, light alcohol warming. Nice beer, but there are lots of nice beers. There’s not too much bitterness as for DIPA, the bitter character is also quite short. Amarillo hops are noticable by it’s indirect sweet charcter - in this case it should be balanced with some bitter hops. Nelson Sauvin adds refreshing and dry character. Aroma is definetely better than the taste. What I like is this is really refreshing and drinkable beer.

330 ml bottle from Redmonds. Murky, dark amber, huge frothy off white head. Lovely nose, loads of pine, resiny hops, pineapple, passion fruit, mango. Flavour is just as intense and has all the aroma notes in spades, backed by a big malty backbone with loads of biscuit and caramel. Decent body, carbonation is not over the top, long fruity malty finish. Sensational.
