3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Oooo man. Light amber, small bubbly head that rings. Holy shit what a savage first 10 minutes put out by the Oilers vs the Stars. Malty biscuit, apricot, Rrgf, pineapple juice, maybe some caramel. The aroma dropped off big time but I still like. Slight flowery tropical note. Good taste - it’s got power but power that is under control. Huge hops balanced well with the same malts I found in the aroma. The grapefruit is in the twilight Zone between ruby red and unsweetened, perfume, Nelson memories, tropical, citrus goodness, last sip shows some spice. I dig. I think Armageddon was better, different beers.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle@home, from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Strong, sweet and bold, still bit simple aroma of fruits like mango and apple. Golden color with light white head and clear liquid. Strong balanced taste of slightly overaged mango and other fruits. Lots of hops, still sweet. Bit simple e.g. no malt flavors. Narrow/medium taste spectrum and long hoppy, fruity aftertaste. Medium body with light/medium carbonation. Overall, high quality product that despite of being sweet, has its own character to keep it different than American cousins. Simple taste though.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Orange and grapefruit bouquet with floral aromas as well. Resiny and chewy citrus on the tongue - like orange marmalade - with lots of other tropical fruit, a bit of pepper and sweet malts. Very little carbonation but still an outstanding beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle (BB 10/9/16). A clear light golden beer beneath a large and dense off-white head that laces nicely. Aroma is packed full of fresh green hops (mandarin, kiwifruit, grapefruit, pine needles) plus faint background malts. It tastes similar with a clean sharp dry resinous bitterness that lingers. Palate is clean, balanced, moreish, and medium-bodied with a slick oily mouthfeel. A fine example of a fragrant balanced DIPA that goes down easily.

Thrown away in a vortex of bitterness. Unbalanced and explosive without focus on harmony. Cool if you search for hoppy powers.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Pale golden coloured with a thin white head. It has a delicate floral and warming, bitter orange marmalade and citrus fruity flavour followed by a smooth, spicy pine and fruity finish. Excellent!

From Growler (TRU BRU - Melbourne’s growler station). Seems very fresh. Better than I remember this in bottle last year. Incredibly tasty DIPA that I recommend to any one.
