3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle at home, poured into a tulip. ABV 8.5%
Pours a deep orange colour on the body, with a huge off-white head that starts to collapse fast but quickly enough stabilizes and ends up with a good retention. Nice medium lacing left on the glass.
Aroma of fruits, something like strawberry marmalade. Not very clear but good none the less. Some malts as well.
Taste is malty and sweet at first, turns quickly to a bitter one. Again this marmalade flavour, malts, red fruits. Bitterness becomes more intense on the aftertaste, with long duration. The alcohol very well hidden.
Medium thin on the body, good soft carbonation. Good dryness on the palate.
Overall very nice double IPA, deserves the hype.

At a tasting, thanks Tom, medium stable bubbley head, a touch deep apricot orange colour, aroma of orange marmalade with touches of pine, some jam and biscuit. orange marmalade flavour with a biscuity backbone and some floral touches, strong pleasant bitterness. Good but a bit one dimensional and maybe just a touch over the hill.

A heavy, well-rounded double IPA of plentiful and only half-bitter hops. Red apples and plenty of hop-barley flavors - big taste with a sharp, tip-of-tongue lingering finish.
