3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Sarah. Pours a clear amber gold with a light brown head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma has a strong pine note with a good amount of resin and a hint of citrus. Flavor begins with a bit of sweet grain that is quickly taken over by strong pine that ends quite dank with some resin and a bit of earthiness. A bit sticky on the tongue.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Brewdog Bar Sheffield. Murky Golden Colour with a slight frothy white head. Powerful aroma of spicy hops and alcohol, woody with resin and dry grass. Taste is deeply bitter and slightly dry. Prickly carbonation doesn’t hide the oil or medium/full body. Lasting bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Superstar - Huntington, 10/19/14
Aroma: The nose of this one is juicy hops mostly, with some sweet malt notes of caramel and dough
Appearance: It pours a deep orange color with a clean, frothy beige head and some drippy lacing
Flavor: The flavor is pretty sweet up-front, juicy, and with a hop bitterness that comes in late
Palate: This beer is medium bodied, a little sticky, with a soft-to-average carbonation, and a dry finish
Following up Yin with Yang was the only logical move. Yang is a sweeter example of a DIPA all the way through the start and mid-palates, but it drys out in the finish. A nice beer. I may have preferred the stout as a representation of the style though. The stickiness of the mouthfeel is a little higher than I would have preferred.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Intraitable arrogance dans l’approche des houblons, massive résine, violente amertume et structure maltée bétonnée. Entre le barleywine disgracieux et la ipa qui tentent d’être mignonne. À partager, à respecter.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Almost clear amber body and large head. Roasted malts, surprisingly, amber, brown sugar, heavy hops, in quality and aroma. Dark berries and pine. Blindfolded I would have believed it’s a brown ipa. Very bitter body, heavy and thereby hiding the alcohol. And being delicious! (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 355ml. An amber beer with a medium size foamy head and some sediments. Aroma if of grapefruit, citrics, pine resin and hops. Taste is bitter with some carbonation and considerable astringency. It has a strong bitter aftertaste and a heavy hoppy character. Slightly alcoholic finish. A great IPA, but in my opinion, not as good as the Molotov Cocktail.
