3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2012 bottle forgotten in cellar. Did not like it too much when fresh. Looks: hazy orange white head. Aroma: fruity, danky, caramel, sweet fruits. taste: bitter pine, some grapefruit, caramel, danky hops, not too much of the aroma hops left which is expected but it still has a nice bitterness. Def. still drinkable and enjoyable.

Rated from memory. I really enjoyed this one. Lots of citrus hop flavor well balanced with the malt backbone. High alcohol is well hidden and beer is in balance.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft pour. Substantial head duration. Body is dark orange hints of copper. Aroma is hop driven, but malts and almost a hint of spice is also present. Mouth is driven by the hops but also the malt background.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle purchased at Best Damn Beer Shop ($2.39). Pours a golden orange hue with lots of small suspended particles. The two fingers of off-white head leaves some decent lacing. Aroma is somewhat faint but includes notes of watery grapefruit, rainy pine forest, and semi-sweet caramel. Flavor of tropical fruit (pineapple, passionfruit) and pine resin with some caramel and slightly metallic notes. The significantly amped up malt profile provides a nice balance here that might otherwise be overly bitter from the Simcoe. Slightly bitter finish. The high alcohol is fairly well hidden. (61, 690)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden with a medium white head. A medium malty DIPA with a lot of fruit, mainly pineapple,orange and grapefruit. The alcohol shines through more than I would like to. The flavors are all there, but not just tuned up as much as wanted. Altogether, a good but not extraordinary DIPA.

Las IPAS a mí siempre me parecen cervezas extrañas; esta tiene un regustillo amargo que la hace muy personal y solo para paladares especializados.

Bottled @ UDRM. The aroma has tropical fruits, grapefruits. Clear, golden coloured beer with a nice, off-white head. Looks quite good. The taste is moderate bitter, quite fruity, citric/grapefruity, little malty. Quite full.

Ar: sweet fruit. Candy, grapefruit, pineapple, passIonfruit, sweet malts, citrus, warming finish.
Ap: Amber colour, medium off-white head, lacing.
F: sweet malt backbone, big bite passionfruit, grapefruit, pine, perfume, alcohol, Not as much tropical fruit as I’m used to find from my favourite hop, but still pretty darn good.
M: Smooth and fresh.
T: really good, more tropical fruits and it would have gotten an even higher mark.

At Christian Firtal a while ago. Golden with a small white head. Mild peachy hop aroma with malt in the background. Sweetish malty and alcoholic flavour with a hoppy and bitter finish
