3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber pour with a tight white head. The aroma is slightly hoppy, lots of bright orange and a bit of soft fruitiness. A little kiss of light vineous character. A little touch of soft apricot and a fairly sweet palate through the middle. A nice fresh fruitiness with some fairly astringent bitterness through the middle. It’s a little bit fatty on the palate. Okay but a bit too sweet for me. Sort of a cooling feeling on the finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
a huge light tan head that rises three quarters of the glass, great retention and lace, a dark cloudy orange, a bit of wait but looks good... subdued light smooth hops, a little sweet oak but its the only vinous note I get... this is one weird and unique tasting beer, I’m attacked with so many different notes I’m almost at a lose for words, lots of dipa qualities of alcohol and liquid resin, a weird smokey quality to it, again I don’t get much of the wine, I’m assuming the Chardonnay gives it the smoke character, but I find it distracting... this is something worth trying because its so different, but its not something that I would have again

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Humlig doft, men mycket blek smak. Det händer absolut ingen ting i smaken av denna ölen. Frisk, men tråkig.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish orange color. Massive, staying white head with soapy rings of lacing. Aromas of pineapple, potpouri, strawberry jam, green grapes, resinous hops. Taste is peppery, woody, earthy citrus fueled hops. Also present is white wine notes, grapefruit hops. This IPA left a pungent tropical fruit flavor on the tongue with a touch of working bitterness. Amazing double ipa from Denmark. Evil twin is killing it with their lineup.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a huge offwhite head, and a hazy colour beneath. Very well balanced, the hops and the wine. The taste of wine is in the background all the time in a tasteful way (although I’m not fond of wine otherwise). You can feel a little bit of alcohol. Gets a bit boring halfway through.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy golden with a small white head. Hoppy aroma dominated by citrus, tropical fruit and white wine. Sweet, fruity flavour with lots of Nelson character and a touch of wine. Really bitter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy deep orange with 3-finger well retained off-white head. Nose is black pepper, tangerine, pineapple, mango, perfumy florals, strawberry; again a very complex nose that it a joy to inhale. The taste is malty, with definite chardonnay notes that integrate well, big florals, black pepper, tangerine, and resiny hops. The flavor is very complex, with huge assertive hops, tropical fruit, black pepper, and a very nice hybrid style that works extremely well, and I can’t believe someone hasn’t thought of this before. I may have a new favorite brewer if this keeps up. Yet another astoundingly good beer from Evil Twin.
