Bottle; thanks to madmitch76 Thick white lacing and a dark redoing texture. Massive Columbus on the nose. Very well dry-hopped. Hugely bitter. Despite some oxidation creeping in it reminds me of Stone Arrogant Bastard. Fantastic work. Would love this fresh.

Pours dark amber with a minimum head, that disappeares quickly. Aroma of malt, hops almost not present. In taste huge malt backbone and medium bitterness. Maybe I got an old bottle but this beer was a huge disappointment.

It's not an easy beer to drink as a first of the evening. It's quite good and hoppy. Would recommend

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Amber, brownish orange color with a huge, froth head, which leaves a fine lacing. Grassy, floral hops, with pine and honeyed malts, along with zingy hints of lemon and kiwi, which add a lovely fruity note to the nose. Very well balanced aromas, evoking the impression of a DIPA with an intriguing complexity.
Taste is very different than expected, as this beer is enormously carbonated, which adds a present metallic note to the usual refreshing feeling, but also is way to fizzy on the palate, as all other tastes can’t unfold beneath the metallic carbon dioxide. Also malts define this ale more than the actual hops, a huge malt backbone adds warming earth notes to the beer, which creates a very strange impression amongst the metallic coating. Hops then become recognizable in a bitter, grassy way, as the beer leads to the finish, way to late for my taste and not very intense either. Nevertheless, the mouthfeel is supersmooth and very enjoyable. Makes up for not being very hoppy by revealing unforseen spicy notes, which enhance the lack of balance, as those just dont want to fit in.
