3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange body with a long-lived off-white head that laces the glass well. Very strong aroma thatís heavy hoppy and fairly aroma, with lots of slightly overripe tropical fruits like sweet peach and mango, also some red berries, sweet caramel and spicy notes in the back. Strong flavour of tropical fruits with a nice malty caramel backbone mixed with herbal notes. A moderate and pleasant chilli burn comes forth in the finish. Itís the perfect amount of chilli for me, itís hot enough to be interesting but far from palate-wrecking hot. The taste is moderate to light sweet and the long-lasting finish is quite heavy bitter. The tiny bit of extra sweetness that this one has compared to your average IPA fits the chilli burn well. Mid-bodied, dry and with a moderate carbonation. For an IPA itís quite complex and demanding due to the chilli, but itís still highly drinkable, crisp and refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Itís a unclear dark orange-golden body under a finger-thick off-white head leaving some curtains. The aroma is quite malty, with a little caramel. Resins, pine cones, green chili and some grass too. After reading the label I realize I should have recognized the scent of mint. Itís lightly warming on the palate, full-bodied, and with a nice carbonation level. Semi-sweet. A nice touch of green chilies, a solid dose of pine cones and resins, with a good bitterness. A nice maltyness too, with some toffee. Lasting finish with bitterness, some chili warmth and a decent malty touch. Love the chili in this one, and itís sure nice anyway. Will definitely buy more bottles of it. 140730

4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
BOTTLE/CAN. Either option is amazing, nice orange colour and all the flavours just burst out of the bottle. The Chilli flavour is so subtle, yet it combines with the other flavours & hops so well... its a must try!
