3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Deep golden leaning towards amber. Clear, but with loose yeast in the bottle which unfortunately made the last pour rather murky. Medium white head that clings to the glass. Interesting spicy herbal aroma. Phenols that remind me of Belgian yeast. Earthy and fruity hop aroma. Quite an unusual hop blend, at least that’s how it comes through. Rich malty body. Hoppy bite, but the beer is well balanced for a double IPA.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
13th March 2013
Hazy amber beer, big white head. Minerally crisp palate. Very sweet malt, bordering on sugary. Caramel and lactose. Touch of citrus and sharp minerals. Finishes smooth. Ridiculously malt sweet for an IPA. totally dominates the faint hops!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Sweet malts in the nose, some herbal hoppiness and a subtle diacetyl note. Rich, malty body, sweet fruit but nicely balanced by a solid bitterness. Hops are not all that crisp and fresh, but certainly leave a solid bitterness. Quite some heat in the finish. The heavy diacetyl I experinced in the early bottles seems to have diminished somewhat. 100813
