3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice orange color with a white head. Aromas of orange marmalade, pineapple, and caramel. Tastes of mandarin, pineapple, grapefruit, and caramel. I was really surprised to see that this is 95 IBUs. The bitterness is hidden almost too well; this came off a bit syrupy sweet to me. Kind of reminded me of ambrosia salad with the sweet orange/pineapple notes.

Great hop aroma of pine and floral. Pretty copper color with a nice head. Weight to the palate. Bold flavors up front with most being hops that were harsh yet balanced with a caramel background. Alcohol well-hidden.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Got to give it this beer as one of the most floral and heavily perfumed IPAs, Distinctive citrus notes, nice golden body just very slightly cloudy and a nice small head that hold pretty well.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650mL bottle from Slowbeer. Brewed 10/4/15
Deep golden body, holds a tight creamy white head.
Resiny hop-driven aroma - candied orange, passionfruit, ripe white peach & nectarines, cut grass, dried woody herbs, with a solid biscuity, toasty, slightly caramelly malt presence.
Seriously chewy body - dense without being heavy, resiny, sticky, tremendously long on the palate without being overtly boozy. Creamy carbonation.
Plenty of oomph on the body - big resiny, very ripe tropical/stone fruits, dried & green leaves & grass, candied citrus, orange sherbert, lots of sweet caramel & toasty malt provide more than enough balance to do battle with an onslaught of bitterness.
Tremendously tasty, tremendously balance, tremendous beer! Worth of #1400 ;)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
04.07.15 best by date. Poured from a bomber into a pub glass on 02.01.15.
A: Citrus, bready malt, and maybe honey malt.
A: 1 finger head that stays. See through dark orange body. Bubbles wash up nicely when pouring.
T: Pineapple and candied tropical fruit dominate. Orange, slight honey on the back end, pine, and vomit are subtle.
P: Oily and smooth. Thick for an IPA.
O: The oily mouthfeel and the taste weren’t that great. I drain poured it when I got sick of it.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Straight away this hits with a really bitter nose, but I'm excited, and starting to feel thirsty. That bitterness is lightly coated with some fruitier flavours, but let's get in.
A mild carbonation brings with it a savoury spice, which gives no regard to any fruit you might be thinking. Until. That classic cascade comes around and taps you in the shoulder, pretty classic citrus and sweeter notes. Stone, and peat are quite prominent on the vapour left floating in your mouth, giving oaky or scotchy elements- fuck yes.
It's pretty kickass, it's pretty rocking, it's pretty damn good. Probably my favourite multi-hop brew for a while, usually they blur into madness, but this highlights the key points of each and makes as a good friend would say "One tasty beverage".
