4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong aroma is quite hoppy with a subtle evergreen undertone and a hint of sour citrus that is not quite grapefruit and not quite orange. It pours a beautiful clear dark golden amber with a thick, frothy, off-white head. Hoppy flavor has hints of evergreen, sour orange and even malt. Full-bodied texture is edgy and lively, leaving behind a hoppy tingle.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A new variant of the excelent double IPA with the same name, but with stronger alcohol. A beautyfull pour that is deep hazy orange with a inch high off white head. The nose is nicely hopped with touches of pine and dry apricots backed up by a well balanced malt feeling. The mouthfeel is medium with a nice creamy touch that smoothen you toung and leads to a bitter and creamy finish. The alcohol seems a bit more balanced and is suiting the beer better than its big brother with its ten percent. A fine hoppy bitterness combined with a nice malty sweetness. Thumps up for remewing a good beer and making it better.
