On draft. 500 yen 9.1% at Tadg’s Epic Event. A quite hoppy beer, lots of floral & pine notes. A bit too bitter for me.

Bottle at Great British Beer Festival 2013.
Poured a slightly hazy dark golden colour with a medium, creamy head. Big aroma of citrus hops, orange peal and tropical fruits. The big bitter hops linger nicely with resiny notes and some juicy malts. No notable astringency. These hops goes up to 11.

Perfectly intense IPA. Not overpowering. Refreshing with a lot of flavour. I thoroughly enjoy the large Epic bottles.. Good to share with friends or consume by yourself..

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at GBBF 2013. It pours hazy golden orange with a small white head. The nose is juicy orange, tangerine, tangy marmalade, sherbet and light alcohol. The taste is juicy orange, grapefruit, earth, big alcohol kick, resinous, marmalade, mild acidity and sherbet with a dry, bitter finish. Medium+ body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Perhaps a bit boozy, but rather nice nonetheless.

Det här var riktigt gott, en kraftfull sak med en rejäl beska och en väl avvägd balans. Smaken bar toner av grapefrukt och lakrits, kroppen som hörde till ölen var av stabil sort.
