3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy, dark gold pour with a creamy, slightly soapy off white head. Aroma is loaded with pine and citrus, dark toast/light roast and a failry big helping of grassy and garlicky hops. Flavor is loaded with caramel and cereal up front, light toast, mineral notes and tree and berry fruit soon after finished by milds citrus, pine, lots of grass, light perfumey citrus and salty garlic butter and toffee to the finish. Medium body with a soapy, syrupy entry, oily and slightly astringent finish, light, but somewhat sharp carbonation and a pretty strong alcohol burn. Overall it’s a decent IIPA (TIPA?), but after the first few sips the grassy, garlicky hops take over completely and probably ruin the deal for anybody who doesn’t like grassy hops. I don’t mind grassy hops and love garlic, though not in my beer, so... It works out decently for me, still too much garlic, but it seems like a nice beer to accompany a nice, spicy, hot garlicky meal.

Pours copper with a big foamy head. A really strong malty aroma. A huge malty kick in the teeth! Amazing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Buona ma non eccelsa, aroma di ananas, mandarino, arancia, caramello e una certa presenza resinosa. Sapore simile, con forti note di caramello, leggero intermezzo tropicale, e presenza di mandarino ed arancia, finale lungo resinoso, molto intenso, che pulisce l’iniziale dolcezza. Buona birra, ma niente di eccezionale

Bottle. Pours a clear orange hue, very bright with a medium white head. A big sweet fruity resin nose. The aroma is just like a triple IPA. The flavor is more sugary tropical resin, mango, oranges, lemon zest. There is some bitterness, but mostly rich tropical sweetness. Quite good. The alcohol is well hidden in some ways despite being a really big beer with a lot of warmth (to style I’d add).

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a hazy amber colour wig a foamy white head. Aroma of melon, grapefruit, mango, some caramel, slight pine, a little peach, subtle blackberry and dark berries. Taste of melon, grapefruit, mango, peach, some orange, slight blackberry, other dark berries, a little resin and earthy, floral hops. Full bodied and an oily texture. A long, dry, resinous, floral hop bitterness in the finish. A lot of citrusy and resinous hops in this, the NZ hops work brilliantly. A lot of hop bitterness with great sweetness and no alcoholic backlash. Lovely and well balanced. The best IIPA so far.
