3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Coppery orange in color. Head dissipated quickly. Aroma is slightly vanilla, earthy/tangy hops. An uncommon sweetness, for a DIPA; but that’s not what throws me off. The hops is appropriately bitter, but has a chemical quality as well. Very boozy. Too much alcohol for the 8%. Mouthfeel is actually great though.

330ml brown bottle. Hazy dark orange pour, tan head that fades to a thin layer. Patchy lacing. Fruity and citrus nose with plenty of orange and grapefruit. Taste is grapefruity, some caramel malts. A little alcohol at the end with a bit of warming in the throat. Grapefuity hops in the aftertaste. Medium body, average carbonation, good lasting bitterness. Voerall a good double IPA that kind of plays it safe.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice aroma, not overpowering. Mild citrus. Taste is very interesting, typical ipa flavours, citrus and pine and I’m getting quite a bit of chocolate which is a little odd but very delicious. Very enjoyable despite being overpriced. Nearly 8 bucks for a 330ml bottle in victoria.
