Bottle. Golden pour. Strong aroma of sweet pine and malt. Taste is explosive indeed, very sweet and malty, with peach, caramel, sugar, pine and biscuit. Has an alcohol punch in the finish. Decent iipa, if it was fruitier it could have been great.

Buona birra, aroma floreale e luppolato dove si sente però la presenza del malto. An he in boccs, illuppolo è offuscato dalla presenza di tanto alcool e tanto malto, necessarismente spinto dalla gradazione elevata. Eauilibrio però tutto finale discreto grazie al finale amarognolo

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours slightly hazy deep gold with one finger of medium ivory head, good retention and moderate lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel malt, tropical fruit, pine, citrus. (7/10) Taste is moderately strong sweet, strong bitter. (7/10) Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, slick slightly syrupy and warming finish. (4/5)
A big DIPA with a well-integrated double digit ABV that comes through as a pleasant boozy warmth in the finish. It’s definitely more sweet than I would prefer, but not overwhelmingly so - I’d prefer more hop-forwardness. Good without being great. (15/20)

Little hazy, orange amber, lasting small head. Aroma is orange, tropical fruit, pine, big hop. Nice. Very sweet to balance out any bitterness. Slick, thick and chewy. Bit of alcohol warmth. I wonder what some time will do.

Great beer, could come off a little less sweet. 13% ABV is aggressive, but you don't taste it. Overall another solid Molotov cocktail.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg at CBC Clerkenwell, London. It pours a rich golden/copper color with a medium tan head. Aroma is rich bold and sweet, with notes of ripe tropical fruits, biscuit, caramel, pine. Taste is again mostly sweet and fruity, with notes of ripe mango, honey melon, biscuit, toffee and a slight alcohol kick. Finishes lightly tart and citrousy, lightly bitter. Medium to full bodied with good carbonation. Overall, tasty if a bit too sweet for my likes

On tap. Cloudy golden orange pour with small white head. Aroma wasn’t quite right, hops, caramel, fruits and a noticeable chlorine aroma. Taste was fine. Malts, caramel, sweet fruits, orange rind, grapefruit and a strong hoppy finish. Full bodied, softer carbonation, alcohol very noticeable. Pretty good overall.

I really liked this. Pours a hazy golden. Aromas include dank hops and sweet malts. Very smooth. No alcohol detected in this monster IPA. Sweet grain malts and fruity hops. Yum.
