3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL bottle from Booze Bud. BB 15/4/16
Pours a deep hazy orange-gold body, white foam sits atop.
Punchy hop driven - stacks of bitter citrus, cut grass, pine sap, biscuity toasty caramel malts.
Full bodied, plenty of carbonation, quite resiny & slick.
Palate packs plenty of hops - pine, grapefruit, woody spice, grass, dried herbs with generous dose of sweet caramel & biscuity malt. Firm bitterness to finish.
Solid IPA rather nice indeed!

In bottiglia. Colore oro tendente all’arancio. Testa soapy colore bianco avorio, da cremosa a pannosa. Olfatto fruttato e floreale, leggera resina e agrumi. Carbonazione da flat a soffice. Aroma etilico di luppolo fruttato, scorza d’agrumi, lievito crespo, resina amara e frutta tropicale. Gusto amaro medio abbastanza aggressivo, pur disciplinato, secco, con finale asciutto a pulire. Alcool crespo e leggermente pungente. Corpo medio, trama leggermente oleosa e croccante. Ottimamente bilanciata, secca e aromatica, solida e soddisfacente, promossa!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: elderberry, pine, tropical fruits, citruses, caramel.
Appearance:: pale, clear, nice white head with good retention.
Taste: light-medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter, again all the notes from aroma with some alcohol as well. A bit overbearing perfumy taste.
Palate: light- medium body, ok texture, average carbonation, long bitter and dry finish.
A good double ipa with some nice layers. A bit tiresome but pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear light copper or deep golden whichever you prefer. A nice white head that settles into a thin film and a little more dense foam along the enges of the glass. The nose has mainly herbal and spicy hops with some floral and bready aromas from the malt and maybe the yeast. The taste follows suit and has an added bitterness and a malty caramel side. Semi bitter finish and sadly not too much fruit character from the hop combo. Nice nontheless.
