3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
the color is a bit more light orange and the head is both big and sticking around.
The smell is both hoppy and yeasty. Lots of orange and coriander before the hops come in. Not a ton of malt here. But a very bitter finish. Outstanding lacing. I’m getting more Belgian than IPA, but I like this. I believe I’m a fan of these kind of hybrids in general.
Overall, a pretty tasty brew, and it’s nice to see some innovation in the style.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
lBottle - dark orange color with a creamy disappearing head. Nice Aromas of Grapefruit, Apricots, Orange, bound into an easy malty body. Bitter ending. It’s okay but to be honest I expected stronger aromas, a real hit-in-your-face, conidering that they relate to hst and call this beer "a raging bitch, unleashed and untamed"

Aucun arôme, ce qui est très surprenant pour une ipa. Belle couleur cuivrée. En bouche, amertume et épices. Un peu bizarre.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Maypole, Cambridge. Orange/brown with some clear white head. Yeast, golden plum and dried papaya scent. Hint of fairground candyfloss. Its not as strong an aroma as I thought it’d be. Tastes gorgeous with the yeasty sweetness overpowering a dry earthy hop bitterness. Medium to long finish, bubblegum and strawberry in the aftertaste. Well put together, and worth drinking, but the price and ABV might put me off having more of these!

Red-amber color, white head, didnt last long but that could be the glasses fault. Smells of citrus and little malt, fruity and a bit spicey. Hops are very balanced, more on the citrus part but tropical fruits as well. Medium body, maltcharacter. Lots of tastes, well balanced beer. Nice one!

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This beer got my attention in the first sip and haunted me for years to come, because I couldn’t get it in Hong Kong. Bold, rich, creamy, hoppy, caramel, spice, banana, etc., etc...it’s not for the weak mind. The sweet malty taste balances well with the bitter hops, and leaving spices, like cinnamon, lingers in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle from who knows. Pours hazy orange copper with medium creamy eggshell head. Aroma is sweet oaky caramel malt, light Belgian yeast, faint dry hops. Taste is sweet, faintly boozy caramel malt, dry and oaky mid-palate; funky Belgian yeast, crisp dry hops on the finish. Solid beer, probably the prototype for Belgian IPAs. Boozy enough to be a double as well.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with minimum, quickly diminishing white top. Aroma is very pungent, some citrus notes and a lot of fresh hoppyness. Taste is medium carbonated, full at first with a nice quick dry twist. It finishes very bitter and still qhite frwah. Taste of malts can be felt.
