3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pour in tulip style shaker. Clear filtered, light amber color. Thin, white head with little lacing. Caramel toffee notes in aroma, with hint of pine. Light on carbonation, strong initial hop hit with distinct bitterness, but soon mellows to be relatively easy on palate with malty, smoothness. Aftertaste is sweet but a bit stronger than other Double IPA?s, at this 7% abv. Seems like a decent entry for the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL from Beer Cartel. Bottled 29/10/14
Copper body with uniform haze, holds a dense inch of head.
Plenty of hops on the nose; pine, grass, citrus, tropical fruits, passionfruit, with a good touch of caramelly, biscuity malt in there.
Body is somewhat sticky & slick, but at the same time full without too much weight for strength.
Palate offers plenty of biscuity, sweet caramel malt with lashings of piney, citrus, passionfruit hops. Strong bitterness on a smooth long finish.
Well balanced DIPA, towards the lower end of the spectrum in intensity.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from mane liquor. Nose shows dank hops like pine and resin. Taste is much the same, full mouthfeel, bitter pine hops. Solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy dark amber with a frothy white head and a little broken lace. The aroma is woody resin pine needle. The flavour is strong bitter with a smooth resin wood peppermint citrus hop palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky caramel appearance. Aroma is a big confused - almost smells like a butterscotch infection due to the interplay between the big malt base and the hops. This is all about the big malts - big caramel sweetness with some bitterness floating out.

Bottle bought at Stewarts Wine, Brisbane, August 2014. Almost clear golden/orange with a small white head. Very hoppy with grapefruit, some grass and pine. The finish was nicely bitter and with some warming alcohol.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not much to look at, decent colour but little carbonation and poor/thin head. Excellent silky feel upon first drink, but an uninspiring somewhat dull taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strange - the toffee/caramel malt flavour seems completely separate to the herbal hops instead of integrated together - malt dominates - not as bitter as expected (wanted more) and darker coloured (wanted less) - not to my taste - not pleasant but not awful.
