4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 355ml bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a medium sized beige head, that left a thick lasting lacing . Aroma and taste of apricots, orange, pineapple, grapefruit and lemon peels. Bitter with a slight sweetness. Medium body and carbonation, thick texture. Overall a good Imperial IPA, but a little too much alcohol for my taste.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice citrus, mango, apricot aroma with some grassy notes. The aroma however should be more powerful in an IIPA.
Nice hazy orange colour with a nice white head.
Heavy in tropical fruit, very subtle matliness but some caramell can be found. The fruitiness is nicely rounded of by the bitterness.
Light body with average carbonation. The palate overall is very nice. It is light and dry as an IIPA should be, the carbonation however should have been higher.
A very nice IIPA, I especially like how it is not to malty or caramelly as many other IIPAs. The malt is there but just enough to carry the hops.

Taste is sweetish, citrusy, malty, caramely and hoppy with hints of fruits and lemon. Finish is lingering bitter, sweetish and malty with hints of citrus and zesty fruits. Quite nicely hopped, heavy DIPA. Would probably be even more better fresh.
