3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle from cotteridge wines. was looking forward to this but was ultimately dissapointed. initial aroma wasnt bad, typical pine and fruity stuff with hint of caramel coming through. dark amber with small head. i just thought there was far to much going on in the taste department. your usual suspects, toffee malts and juicy fruits were there but then this strange almost vegetable flavour came through and sort of ruined it for me. there was a good amount of bitterness going down as you would expect from a DIPA. overall it wasnt bad, iíve tasted much worse, but just wassnt at all as good as i had expected.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the Grumpy Goat beer shop, Reading, served in shaker. Magnificently hoppy DIPA from the wonderful Buxton brewery, my current fave. Loads of piney hops on the nose, fantastic marmalady, resinous hops all the way through. Good, but not overwhelming, bitter finish. A masterpiece!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, BBE 28/05/15, batch #97. Pours a yellowy orange with a stylish, decent-sized, lightly yellowish-brown head. Aroma is a lot of hoppiness, green and fresh from the mouth of the bottle. NZ hops from the glass: Passionfruit, guava, papaya. Taste is a lot of hoppiness; the same passionfruit, guava and papaya. Some pine, light caramel. Quite dry, but very fruity. Superbly drinkable even with such a high ABV. Medium with medium carbonation.

In bottiglia da 33cl. Colore giallo dorato, abb limpida, con schiuma fine e abb persistente. Aromi molto intensi di frutta esotica, pomplemo, mango su tutti. Al palato corpo pieno, maltato presente che ben bilancia la parte amara importante ma non eccessiva. Birra bevuta giovane che regala sensazioni molto piacevoli, pulita e intensa. Buonissima!
