3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Backlog rating. Bottle shared by Fergus at CBC CW, London. It pours a rich golden color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is resiny and sticky, quite sweet with notes of caramel malt, toffee and ripe fruits. Taste has more caramel, ripe fruits and resin. Medium to full bodied with soft to good carbonation. Overall, sweet and sticky, not really vibrant

from Erzbierschof - cloudy dark orange beer with a long lasting foam; hugely hoppy aroma showing notes of pine needles, peaches, quinces and cream; full-bodied, quite sticky, robustly bitter yet with some malty sweetness below; light residual sweetness and long resiney, caramelish and fruity finish

Bottle. Hazy goldenorange in color with a fluffy off-white head. Caramel sweet and piney notes in aroma at first. Lots of both floral and citrus fruityness too. Some bitters are there in taste together with some spruce and resin. Bitter and a nice soft malty finish here. Excellent. Dry and warming with some grapefruity notes in the end.

Botella de 65 cl en el lúpulo en enero de 2014. Sabores dulces afrutados con un cuerpo medio a intenso de 9.5 vol algo pastoso y denso. Para repetir sin duda.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle - Maximum hops, maximum flavor, great beer. I’ve been waiting to try Steve’s new creations via High Water, and this was well worth waiting for. Aroma might be the weak link in this great beer, but that’s a stretch. The aroma starts out with a strong piney punch, resiny, juicy, fruity but restrained. Flavor has an enormous, hop blast like chewing on a fresh hop cone, lots of green hop flavor. The malts are there, and it’s definitely a balanced DIPA for sure. Nothing overly bracing about this DIPA, just a hop-showcase and something really smooth and satisfying about this beer. No noticeable alcohol presence, thanks in part to the malt bill.

"lots of orange and citrus in the aroma and flavor made this one stand out a bit. actually pretty well balanced but copious amounts of hops were evident. very nice beer."
