3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Off tap into a tulip glass. One finger of head on a dark copper body.
It has a strong smell of orange and lemon, which it nice.
The taste is solid bitterness and a little sour orange. Bold and in your face.
The mouthfeel is normal moderate carbonation and medium body.
Overall a nice drink and I liked the orange scent and flavor that came through.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a semi-dark hazy brown color with a thin white semi-foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Light messy lacing
The aroma starts off with some glazed orange/citrus peel/rind bitter to sweet hops with some piney bitterness. Caramel malt balances in a sweet malty way.
The flavor takes the sweetness of the hops to the sweetness of the malts to enunciate a low riding overall sweetness. Light tobacco smooths into the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a slidingly smooth sipping quality to it. Carbonation runs fairly light.
Overall, old school styled DIPA that alleviates the pain of wanting it to be modernized. So, it’s built to last malty body helps it make it the sipper that it is.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. The beer is clear with beautiful copper/red color and a medium, creamy head. Aroma of the beer is very sweet with resinous and strong fruity syrup notes. Also some fruity jelly with alcohol. Mouth feel is thick and creamy with delicate carbonation. Which is nice. Flavor is sweet, almost cloying sweet like a barley wine. But there is a lot of hop burn and resinous/fruity character ending with medium bitterness. Like I said the hop burn and medium bitterness makes is a quite balanced and delicious. Overall a very nice beer but heavy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very strong taste of pines and hops. Some floral notes along with toffee, alcohol punching through, but not too much. IPA full of character, for sure!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Kuparinvärinen, kohtalaisesti luonnonvalkoista vaahtoa tuottava olut jättää myös kevyesti pitsiä. Tuoksussa yllättävän runsaasti toffeeta, pihkaisuutta ja mäntyisyyttä. Maku makean toffeinen, havuinen ja greippinen. Pitkä katkeran greippinen ja havuinen jälkimaku. Melko täyteläinen suutuntuma, alkoholi on hyvin piilossa. Aika yksipuolisen havuinen ja makean toffeinen kokonaisuus tämä tuntuu olevan ja eksoottinen hedelmäisyys loistaa poissaolollaan.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange color. Hop is dominant in the aroma, with sweetness in the background. Mixing heavy sweet and heavy bitter tastes little by little, but not balanced. Alcohol becomes too clear during the finish.

Clear amber colour, huge creamy and long lasting yellowish-beige-ish head; aroma of pine resin, orange peel oils, celery, grapefruit, minimal biscuit notes and hints of sauerkraut; taste of a typical perfect IIPA: tons of resiny hops, some citruses and tropical fruits (mango?) as well as malty sweetness; lovely beer
