4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Snifter at home. Pours a beautiful golden amber with a one finger foamy head. Some lacing on the snifter throughout. Aroma of significant hops and malts. Leather and earth tones with fresh grass. Taste is similar. Extremely well balanced with malts and hops. Not a booze taste, but very powerful DIPA. Medium body, medium carbonation. Finish is malty and bitter. WONDERFUL!

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, poured into a sampler. Bright, crisp aromas of peach, passion fruit, pineapple upside-down cake, maraschino cherries, apricot, and honeydew all come through with some candy sugar. It pours a hazy, opaque apricot color with a thick, off-white foamy head that reduces down to a thick foamy ring with a thin, small island. It leaves behind a runny, fuzzy moderate lacing. It’s highly bitter with a medium / medium-light sweetness. The chewy, full bodied beer has lots of fuzzy carbonation. Pine, grassy, resin, and light, sweet fruit all come through on the palate and it finishes dry with a fresh, lingering aftertaste.

Bronze colour with small head but lasting laces. Peach and strawberry aroma, also grapefruit. Full bodied malt taste, fruit and soap hides much of the bitterness and alcohol at first. Long aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOD 6/25/14. Clear amber pour with a dark ruby cast. Normal head with excellent lacing and retention. Nice nose of blended hops (pine, citrus and a bit of dank) over a caramel background with a hint of alcohol. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Below average carbonation with no effervescence on the finish. The taste profile is complex, but a bit out of balance. The alcohol is quite prevalent. It begins with a caramel rush that flows into the hop flavor, but never totally recedes. The middle is a mild dank bitterness. The finish lingers with alcohol and a slight phenolic note.

Looks.. Hazy orange amber, sml white head.
Smells..floral and unripe stonefruits, loads of malts..red honey, caramel.
Tastes..hops v malts battle won by malts, sweet floral hops, strong caramel malts.. A little boozy too. This was bottled 1 yr ago.. So was expected to have lost some hop character..

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Incredibly bitter scent. The taste is bitter and quite obnoxious. There are no words I series uses often when I drink beer but this beer I really difficult to drink. It has a minimal fruity taste but as I said, it is taken over by a bitter taste. Bitterness is not good at all, but may still hold in the whole mouth for a long time. To me this beer svårdrucken even though I love Double IPA. Nevertheless believe that this is an defect beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
