4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
From a 500ml bottle on 24/12/ 2012 (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours a very dark golden with a small to medium head. Has a fabulous, very strong piney hop aroma, with some floral and caramel notes. Flavour wise, you get sweet biscuit and caramel malt, orange, lime, citrus peel, and a massive, lingering resiny bitterness. Exhibits a wonderful sweet bitter balance and great complexity while being exceptionally easy to drink for a beer approaching 9%. A sensational DIPA. Another cracker from 8 Wired.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A slightly orange beer, a head is medium and blond. Aroma has mangos, papaiyas, grapefruits, also fructose. Taste has fruitness of mangos and papaiyas, grapefruits, pine, at least medium bitterness, also sweetness. Medium+ bodied. Not so fresh anymore, that’s degreased the best freshness. But good beer anyway, balanced.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Tanakaya. Big, juicy, syrupy fruit nose, peach, melon, orange, grapefruit. Sweet malt. Hazy orange-gold with a low head. Sweet, fruity, very hoppy. Iced fruit cocktail: grapefruit, cherry, grape, orange, nectarine. Very nice fruit. Sweet but not silly. Rather heavy, syrupy body, though. Great hops, and pretty nice overall.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taster at Mikkeller Seoul (had in new zealand before too). Grassy and sweet for the nose, and lots of sweet hops for the tongue. There’s grape, citrus and grass notes and it slips down really smooth. This is a really well balanced imperial ipa. It’s still clearly the style but balanced really delicately.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from eDrinks. BB scraped off? Pours clear amber with off-white head that drops to islets in an instant. Aroma of... resin, caramel, some indistinct fruity juicy stuff. Tastes overly bitter with some more malty than fruity sweetness in the background. Yet the overall impression is still rather sweet. Funny... Crispish, medium body, not too heavy on the tongue, some stickiness, lingering resiny bitterness in the finish. Feels pretty old. And not my type of IIPA.
