4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aged 2013 (drank in 2015). Pours a light gold. Has one of the strongest aromas I’ve smelled in a beer with a strong floral. A powerful taste with grapefruit and some floral hops. A lingering but not overpowering hop aftertaste.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
På fat Pickle bar Brooklyn. Klassiskt rostfärgad Dipa. Fiin Dipa doft , lite vanilj?. Mycket fyllig smak rätt igenom från början till slut. Aprikos tydligt inslag åh jävligt balanserad. Lagom kolsyrad. Varm känsla i munnen å fin eftersmak. Tappar lite när den blivit lite varmare i glaset. Sjukt kunna göra en DIPA på 18% åh den smakar Dipa inte vin. Ja när man läser om ölen är den ju sjukt fylld av humle. Liksom tryckt i åh lagrat å tryckt i än mer mm mm. Häftigt

Pours a clear golden hue with an small, off white head which floats around for a while. Caramel and pine dominate the nose. Huge caramel up front leading into pine sap, bready wheat and a wave of bitterness with an alcohol undertone. Full bodied with ample carbonation. It’s crazy how drinkable this beer is. A really awesome beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared with my wife, picked it up at Consumer’s Beverages Niagara. Pours a classic copper, about a finger and a half of white head, that dies to nothing short of a ring, leaving some lacy specks. Nose is obviously hoppy, tropical, more piney sap. It wasn’t the blast I was expecting to get. Tastes surprisingly balanced, it’s malty sweet, with some caramel notes, hoppy and bitter with some heat from the booze and a little bit of a tongue number which I don’t know if it’s the Abv or the hops. I was stoked to finally sample this, and would gladly have again if I could find on draft or a more reasonably priced bottle.

On tap at hop cat. Second time having this on tap. Super intense but pretty well balanced given that. Tastes almost like a wine. One of a kind

Bottle. Pours clear dark orange with lots of alcohol legs. Decent off white for an 18 percent beer. Nose is lots of hop, alcohol and sherry or brandy. Taste is hops and alcohol and malt sweetness. Big time alcohol burn. Love it!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber with quickly fading head. Nose is very boozy. Booze, booze, booze, citrus, orange, and caramel malt. Flavor is boozy caramel malt, citrus, orange, faint grapefruit and almost a raisin-y character. Lingering citrus rind, sticky malt and booze. Just too boozy and a bit too unadventurous.

Awesome brew with an aroma that filled the place. Mouthfeel was a little cloying sweet but the only downside. Would like mpu xxipas dryer but the hops killed it fricking awesome hopped up brew.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 ounce bottle. Cloudy amber gold color. No head to speak of. Aroma is alcohol, wood, spackle and resiny hops. First sip is intense bitter hops. Then, warming in the throat and chest. Quite unique, in that it is reminiscent of a barleywine with it’s large malty backbone yet the overwhelming hoppiness takes this to another ethereal plane. This is a malt beverage of epic proportions. It must be sipped slowly and carefully, to truly take in the many twists and turns that present themselves here. The obvious alcohol prescence is complimented by notes of vanilla bean, cedar, pine needles and grapefruit pith. The complexity of this IPA transcends spatial recognition. The alcohol seems to be taking control of my senses and emotions. I am feeling warm and comfortable, even possibly numb. If you can, get yourself a bottle of this fine elixir and indulge. You could do far worse for a $10 dollars. Prost!
