3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy amber body with a thick white head. Steady carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of pine, green apple, mango and minerals. Flavour is quite flinty and botanical - itís like a beery gin and tonic. Faint tropical fruit flavours try to get through. Huge bitterness. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture. Soft fizz. A big, potent IPA with a nice mineral quality.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Hazy amber beer, good creamy head. Tight grapefruity, dried apricoty and floral hop notes, "wet and green" hop notes har to describe, light caramel and boozy fermentation aromas. Sweet and caramelly flavor with loads of bitterness, slightly harsh alcohol, medium dark caramel and ripe fruitiness. Long lingering, resiny bitterness has slight mineral bite. Full body, rather heavy drinkability. Nice carbonation, slightly alcoholic/harsh texture. Sweetish and slightly alcoholic character brings some homebrewed DIPA:s into mind. Somethingís good and somethingís not that good in this beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. Clear and copper coloured. Aroma stands out a mile: sweet, very piney, perfumed, a little earthy -- it just doesnít seem to subside. Smooth and medium-bodied. Bitter linger melds with a good bit of alcohol warming. A peppery even spicey finish was my experience. Would love to try on draught.
