2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy amber colour with a small lasting white ring around the glass. Aroma is sweet malt and as i search for hops im not sure if im looking too hard for something that Isnít there bust possibly light floral/grassy. Flavour is mostly sweet malts, caramel, medium hop bitterness with little distinctive flavour. Overall something about this beer does work but under the iipa category its a bit of a miss.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber color with a frothy and sticky off white head. Aroma is rich sweet malts with hints of grass. Taste is really sweet caramel malts up front with a bit of hops on the finish. Might be the variety of hop but this one needs more balance.

Sour, caramel, hoppy bitterness, and pine aromas. Clear light amber with a generous 2cm tan head that reduces to 1/2cm and stays. Fruity, caramel, pine, slight alcohol, and nice bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with an ample, sticky, off-white head. Aroma is mostly a brown sugar, caramel sort of malt with a light fruity sweetness. Very little hops in the aroma. Taste is very sweet with earthy hops. Overall, very odd tasting for a DIPA, an interesting experiment but it didnít quite work.

Bottle recently from Rahmanís. Decent IPA plus in bitterness. Good drinkable but nothing exceptional to taste, or in aroma or appearance. Unexceptional overall.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clearer golden orange with a white head. The aroma has almost disappeared, light sweet hop notes are barely there. The flavors bring some light bitter and sweet hops that donít bite at all. There is a syrupy malt base, not like a barleywine but much lighter. The body fares well, just right on the carbonation
