3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Brownish with beige head, not that nice almost "dirty" look. After smelling and tasting though, I didn’t care how it looked. Complex combination of hops and fruits, nice bitterness. Usually not a fan of high alcohol ales, but this was more than alright.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle, via sk8viking. Pours a dark ruby amber body with a great frothy beige head. Spotty sticky lacing. The nose is moderate piney hops with a good bit of crystal malt sweetness. Aggressively piney hop bitterness up front, but a little too much crystal malt coming on in the finish. It makes it too sweet, it reminds me of Lipton Iced Tea powder. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with some stickiness on the back end. Moderate fizzy prickly carbonation. It gets a bit heavy on the palate after a while. IPAs with lots of crystal malt are just not my thing. Big dominating crystal malt has no place in an IPA.
