3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours darkish gold with a slight white head. Aroma is smoothly hoppy - must be a mix - but tropical fruit and citrus are probable. Full bodied. There’s a nice caramel backbone, and there’s a lot of hop - floral, citrus rind, and perhaps pine or earthy. It’s very hoppy, but not harsh. It’s finishing very hoppy, definitely bitter, but entirely refined. Excellent.

500ml bottle from New World Saint Martins, Christchurch. Pours clear amber, very beautiful. Strong grassy nose, foreshadowing what will come once you take a sip: A fruity, citric, complex combination of hops, well balanced and interesting even towards end.

Pours lovely golden with minimal head. Aroma is awesome! Plenty of hop aromatics with scents of rockmelon and various tropical fruits. It has Low carbonation and feels like velvet on the palate. It's very smooth with a beautiful fruity, piney, bitter finish. Great beer!

The beer all other DIPA's should be modelled on. It ticks all the boxes and even at 8+% abv it drïnks like a session beer. Dangerous/delicious.

At a private tasting in Serbia with markoijelena and luttonm. "Pour it" pale golden a bit hazy with a white decent foamy head. Nose is mix of citrus notes, very fresh grapefruit. Amazing. Mouth: great but a bit disappointing compared to the nose. It mirrors the mouth. A good beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Apperance: Nice golden color, with a white head.
Aroma: Full of tropical fruits like mango and pineapple. And of course lots of citrus. Very nice..
Taste: More fruity notes, and pine, malt in a good combination.
Palate: Medium-full bodied beer. Not much to complain about….
Overall: This is a killer of an DIPA. To date the best I tasted so far. Lots of citrus and tropical fruits that are fighting the nice hop flavors.
