pours a clear golden color, with a small amount of white lacy foam. aromas of pine and citrus. tastes sweet, with a medium bitterness that lingers. body is medium, with a sort of oily, long bitter finish. tastes ideal for a double ipa. burping up pine is always a good sign.

great stuff; intense flavour of ripe apricots and elderflower, followed by smooth caramel and malt; on the palate itís still fruity but becomes more and more malty and a bit spicy; be carefull: itís a strong one but you donít really recognize it ;-)

22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet caramel, citrus, pine resin with some mild cat piss. The flavor is in line with what a DIPA should be; big caramel, big citrus and resiny hops. Medium plus body with strong bitterness to the finish.

Pours clear dark yellow with a sticky white head.
Clean aroma of citrus rind and light pine resin.
The flavor is smooth bitterness with a dry finish.
Just enough sweetness to balance and not sticky sweet like some Double IPAs.

0.65l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. A treat! This is a clear golden-flower colored one with a small bubbly off-white top. Smells really nice! Sweet caramel, piny hops, some cat piss, apricots and the green part on the strawberry. Smells really nice. Oh, lotís of sticky caramel sweetness in the taste, but itís quickly balanced by a string pine cone-like bitterness. A Sticky mouthfeel and a soft to average carbonation level. Warming sticky alcohol - that hits many spots. Itís clearly not fresh this bottle, but still quite tasty! 26.10.2012

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very strong citrus aroma, especially pink grapefruit. Very smooth texture. Has a nice flavour balance as the malt sweetness is not overpowered by the hop bitterness.
