4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer had a clear body, golden amber color, and a one finger thick head. The carbonation looked gentle, and was comprised of some very fine bubbles. The smell of the beer was quite a bit milder than what I expected a Triple IPA to be. I could detect grapefruit and hay, and some pine. The taste was much hoppier than the smell, with a grapefruit laden, tongue tingling,hop bitterness. The alcohol was very well hidden, and the beer felt nowhere near 10% ABV. The body was medium dense, but much lighter than a typical beer of this strength, and the finish was herbal and long. This was a great find for a hophead like me.

Very nice beer. Pushing heavier on the barley wine side rather than the hoppy IPA.

Near clear orange pour. Aroma is floral hops. Taste is floral, sweet and bitter finish. Blah blah blah, I hate the character count requirement.

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.
