3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a centimeter of off-white frothy head that dissipates quickly but has light lacing. Tart and bitter mouthfeel, not very floral or fruity. Piney hops. It’s got a nice flavor but one has to appreciate the bitterness because it would seem unbalanced. Pretty solid.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Best before 6/15. Deep orange hazy colour, creamy off-white head that nicely lasts. Big tropical fruity (peach, orange, pineapple, grapefruit) hops in the nose and taste, pine, good amount of bitterness but the fruits dominate, creamy soft malts. Oily but drying aftertaste, lingering bitterness. Low carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, firm body. Very good DIPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a 330ml bottle on 14/8/2014. Pours a cloudy golden with a medium head. Has a very pleasant aroma dominated by honey and lemon. Flavour wise, it features sweet stone fruit (peach, apricot), lots of honey, some light caramel malt, and a really assertive, lingering, resiny, slightly salty hop bitterness. The palate is quite creamy and the carbonation is average. Very balanced and packed full of flavour, I became increasingly impressed as it warmed. A very good and quite distinctive DIPA.
