3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Somewhere between deep golden and pale amber, firm head. Striking lychee aroma. Full bodied and very sweet. The attempts at balancing the vast amounts of hops results in excessive sweetness,and it feels a bit sticky. The lovely hop flavour fades out into an inky bitter finish.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2010 11th October 2008. GABF.
Very very grassy and spicy hops. Like sticking raw hops in your mouth. Could do with some refinement. Original rating 2.7

Clear gold beer with a residual suddy white head. Deep rich syrupy hops - huge amounts of grass and grapefruit with a tiny bit of sweet pineapple buried underneath. Enjoyed this much more second time around. This is a very aggressive IPA.

The bottle is at least one year old; it pours a hazy amber color, with generous head, quite frothy, leaving behind a nice lace. The hop aroma is mostly resiny, with only light fruits; there is also a peculiar light soap presence, and refined white sugar. Good body strength; there is a very good toffee and caramel flavor, with the desired sweetness, with apricot jam; strong bitterness, a bit harsh, then resiny, finally fruity too. Powerful and deeply pleasant, but not very fresh.
Hazy deep blond color. Fruity hop beer, apricot jam and oranges. Good caramel and toffee flavor, resiny and fruity hops, bitter oranges. Strong final, getting a bit astringent.

Hazy golden color; big head. Very nice and quite original aroma, hoppy, earthy, with manure. Toffee flavor, and similar hop impact (manure...); some sweetness too. Very good, but tonight, compared side to side to the Ballast Point Dorado, it can’t win.
