2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
1L squealer. Pours cloudy with almost no head and i have fears the beer maybe flat. Aroma is citrus/spice with burnt caramel backing. very faint carbonation which is disappointing. Big zesty flavour with a hit of alcohol and caramel. I’m sure this would be much better fresh from the brewery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden yellow, with sml-med head. Smells.. Hoppy but malt and caramel dominates the aroma - especially as it warms. Tastes.. Ripened stone fruit, caramel, some piney and resinous hop characteristics and a bit of booze.

On tap @ Borefts 2012 - taken from notes. Pours hazy light orange with small head. Fruity aroma, some grassy notes and some pine. Taste is nicely sweet and bitter at a time. Nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the Vinmonopolet, Oslo. Poured a cloudy amber colour with a thin white broken head. The aroma is rich, floral and alcoholic. The flavour is strong bitter with lots of hops and spicy bitterness on the palate. This really is a first rate imperial IPA. Track it down if you can!

It's good, drank it while making dinner, so I was slightly distracted at the time. Hoppy, citrous, hint of banana somehow.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a lacy, light beige head. Aroma of citrusy hops plus a good amount of caramel malts. Flavor the same, with a good amount of bitterness. Average texture. I would like my DIPA’s to have more malt and citrus, less bitterness. The ABV is noticeable in the flavor.
