4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma - dank smell, very good.
Appearance - must be bottle conditioned because the pour is cloudy and full of sediment. I need to make sure I don’t pour the entire bottle.
Taste - medium mouth feel, with a huge bite at the end of the tongue, which I like.
Overall - I has hesitant with it being such a big beer, but this is very solid.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours orange with a small head disappearing very fast. Aroma: a lot of herbs, white fruit and strong malt aromas which tell you immediately this is not a lightweight beer. Taste: very full taste, medium carbonation, with bitter herbish taste and malt balancing each other very well. All this is very intense. The bitter, pleasant aftertone stays on your tongue for a long time after taking a sip. Warming effect from the alcohol in the palate, however, the 13% ABV is very well hidden. In general this is a fantastic double IPA, but something not for the faint of heart.

Light golden - looks lovely! Smells like mild dank hops and butterscotch sweet. Very sweet oily hops and some bitterness. Bit sickly. Not my cup of tea.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The head is robust, the body orange-brown and cloudy. It smells f****** fruity, peach, apricot, apple, orange, mandarine, etc. The taste is very creamy, juicy like a smoothie, fruity, apricot, peach, (...). Delicious and warming! Cheers!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours slightly hazy amber, large bubbles, lots of tiny particles floating around. Big aroma, pick any descriptor for hops and its here: pine, floral, cat pee, citrus. Full body, rich taste, more cat pee, sweet malt. Too sweet. Oh, this is a big, big DIPA/TIPA but balance and drinkable it ain’t. Too much r.s., too much cat pee, I’d drop the carbonation a bit, as it is though, the balance is OK. For what it is, the alcohol is well hidden. I can drink a shot or two before this becomes undrinkable. Not what I’d rate highly in a beer.

Quite sweet with citrus and exotic fruit from the hops against a heavy biscuity malt. Very well balanced and not at all boozy which is quite impressive given the ABV.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy orange pour. Aroma is hops, citrus, grapefruit and weed. Taste is grapefruit, citrus, hops and lemon. Mouthful is syrupy, a little to much for an IPA. Taste is smooth but almost medicinal like. Once refined will be great.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Butelka. W aromacie żywica, owoce tropikalne mango, ananas, marakuja. Piana znikoma, wysycenie niskie, kolor jasno miedziany, w piwie pływają żelkowate męty, jest nieklarowne. W smaku baaaaaaaaaardzo gęste niczym syrop, słodkie(ale nie do bólu), czuć owoce, miód, karmel, minimalna ziołowość. Alkohol zaskakująco dobrze ułożony ale przy każdym łyku czuć że piwo jest ciężkie. Goryczka na finiszu przyzwoita, nie przytłaczająca.

Whoo wee, this is sweet and thick as thighs. Slightly syrupy. Murky amber color with a thin white head. Heavy all the way around.
