3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location/Date:Bottle on November 13, 2012.
Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark maroon with light white head.
Aroma: Aroma of light caramel.
Taste: Nice amount of bitterness, lots of caramel malt, faint pine.
Palate:Medium body, slightly sticky, faint carbonation, lingering aftertaste.
Summary: Almost reads more like a "imperial red" IPA than an IPA. Which is okay, cause I enjoy that.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle from BG Birra, served in a nonic half pint glass. Typical sunrise orange, slightly hazy, with a a nice, creamy, forever lasting white head. Great lacing. Not the cleanest aroma, a hint of dust and yeast, obviously together with a nice bouquet of citrus, tropical fruits, a hint of pine resin and caramel malts. Quite harsh upfront, not because of the bitterness, which is actually kinda moderate, but because of a boozy and warming sensation. Light astringency, solid malt backbone (more biscuit than caramel), slightly sticky, pleasent fruity aftertaste. Average carbonation, medium body, slightly creamy texture. I had 10+% beers where the alchool was more hidden, so that’s probably the biggest fault in this beer, imho. So so.

Hazy dark amber color with a small off-white head that keeps a nice lacing for long time. Aroma is hoppy and malty, hints of fruits like apple and grapes. Flavor is like aroma but more sweet. Low carbonation and full bodied with a nice bitter hoppy finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy orange colour, small white head. Aroma - mainly dominated by malt sweetness, a little boozy, marmalade, I’m getting a raisin note? Touch of pine and some earthy woodiness. Taste - a little sweet, mostly orange from the amarillo, not getting much chinook in the spicy end of things. Soft bitterness, bordering on being a little too sweet. It’s ok but a little sickly.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice hoppy beer, malty and fruity. Yet, the TRIPA and the IPA from Emelisse are better. This one stands a bit in between.
