Light amber color with creamy head. One of those Double IPAs with a strong animal character; it’s full bodied and fairly sweet, with moderate fruity contribution and strong resiny final
Good but a bit cloying.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. A lightly hazy dark golden beer topped by a finger-thick off-white head. Lots of pine cones and resins on the nose, some herbs and a faint cheesy oxidized touch. Sure a bit old this one, but damn nice anyway. Some caramel and hints of liverpaste. In a nice way that is. It’s quite sweet on the palate, full-bodied and with a pleasant carbonation level. Pine cones, citrus peel, resins and a cheesy touch in the flavor. Pale malts and some sweetness. Lasting bitterness with lots of hop flavors. Wonderful indeed, would be very interesting to have this one fresh. 140717
