3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle @ wPBF’14, BBE 19.08.2014
Aroma is fresh with sweetish fruits, especially pineapple. Also some odd yeasty notes in the background. Flavour has sweet fruits, hops, pineapples and some juicy tones. Slightly too sweet but not bad still. Doesn’t feel very imperial – the only thing telling about it is the warming alcohol in the finish.

Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma of floral hops, caramel malts, some resin and mild wooden notes. Flavor of resinous hops, caramel malts, exotic fruits with some gooseberries on the finish. Crisp fruity palate, sweet finish. Straightforward but nothing special.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 33 cl, BB 08/2014. Pours hazy orange in color ith a small off-white head.
Sweet piney notes, fresh and ripe forrest berries in aroma. Sweet ripe berries
with some grassy bitterness in taste. Feels surprisingly light considering the
abv. Tasty brew with a nice balance between the fruityness and bitterness here.
A bit of herbal spicyness steps forwards towards the end.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Golden with a slight haze. Hoppy lime citrus, green berries. Feels quite nice, refreshing. Medium bodied, soft. Has sweetness, some caramels, but enough smooth bitters to strike a good balance. I’m really pleased with this, most of the "DIPA"s from outside of the US (or brewdog) tend to be really caramelly barley-wine- y messes. This is nicely flavoured, with a refreshingly feathery texture. More on the fruity side flavour-wise, doesn’t hit the pines that hard.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. BB 22/10/14. From bierzwerg.de.
The beer looks very much IPA... hazy amber colour with a small frothy off-white head. The aroma is pine, spruce and a whole forest of coniferous woods in the aroma. The flavour is much more sweet... the hoppiness is dark and sweet... and the alcohol is quite present. After a billion beers this seems to be quite easy to drink... and intoxicating... even more and more... but tasty.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Crew Ale. Nice thick head with a deep yellow, light orange color. Strong aromas of sweet fruits, fresh lemon, watermelon and the smell of young grass.
Tastes of fruits, which convert into more fruits. From orange, peach to more saturated fruits like red apple and ripe grapes, even some hints of honey, really intense. Fruityness vanishes into a malty, breadish flavor, which becomes more and more bitter, with a long hoppy finsih. While hoppyness kicks in, the floral, fruity tastes are still remarkably present, which gives the beer a powerful, complex aftertaste. Carbonation is perfect, not too much, underlines the freshness of this beer very well.
