Bottle 355ml @ geokkjer
Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, orange, grape, pine and alcohol. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium to heavy bitter with a long warm, bitter and fruity finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Seems a bit old would like to try it fresh.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a extremely small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were fully diminished and left behind a slightly hazy yellow orange colored body and a fair lacing. The weak aroma was of malts and hops. The mild citrus mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a bitter fruity aftertaste. The semi-thick flavor contained notes of bitter citrus, herbs, caramel, breads, fruit and hops. A decent brew that I would consider drinking again.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle. Hazy golden. Bold sweet resiny aroma with lots of pine and caramel. Onions. Sharp petrol flavours at first. Then lots of hop bitterness. Fantastic aroma and very flavourful. Full bodied with quite a bit of sweetness, but there enough hops to balance. Long lingering bitterness in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2014 An excellent double IPA that showcases well what antipodean hops can bring to the table. A little too strong to enjoy in the quantities one would like though.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Etwas verhalten in der Nase, jedoch entfaltet sich das volle Aroma im Antrunk. Mango, Maracuja und Citrusnoten dominieren das Bier.
Durch das intensive Aroma rückt die durchaus vorhandene Bittere zunächst in den Hintergrund, um beim Nachlassen der Frucht dann zur Geltung zu kommen.
Der hohe Alkoholgehalt trägt das Bier, gerät jedoch nicht in den Vordergrund und regt gefährlicherweise dazu an direkt die nächste Flasche öffnen zu wollen.
