3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 14C). Bottle 33 cl - Bottled on 01/05/14. AROMA: medium/low fruity and floral aromas, balanced with a sweet malt profile. very prominent alcohol aroma but it isnt hot. APPEARANCE: deep golden/orangeish color and very hazy (dry hopped). good off white moussy head with good retention and alcohol derived viscosity. TASTE: sweet malty profile balanced with floral and slight fruity notes. high bitterness that lingers well beyond a medium-dry aftertaste. clean and smooth alcohol background without solventy character. PALATE: smooth medium body with a smooth warming alcohol profile. medium carbonation. OVERALL: although a nice IPA, its very high residual sweetness isnt characteristic of an imperial/double IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. Smells fruity. Appealing appearance. Pours cloudy amber-coloured with a thick foamy white head which lasts for quite long. Aromas of caramel and honey are quite noticeable. Aromas of citrus hops are also present , but not that overwhelmingly much. The Amarillo tastes quite sweet and its bitter touch is quite soft and a bit warmish. The taste fades a bit too quickly to my likings, which makes this beer a bit bland. It sure is tasty and definetely not bad, but it misses something to make it less bland. Could have had more bitterness.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2014 On draught. Creamy amber, pretty murky. Soft hoppy taste, citrus, sirope. Soft character is pleasing, aroma is mute, a bit too dull to my taste. Should try a bottle...
Bottle a month later. Fluffy head, creamy amber with poignant aromatic fumes from the Amarillo. The scent of the hop is soft and deep. Aroma is also wort and sweet boiled barley. The high ABV balances out and makes this beer a unique DIPA. Lovely!!
