2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle shared by Alexcg. Clear amber with a small off-white head. Malty aroma with dark fruits, caramel and hints of spices. Quite sweet with flavour of dried fruits and a fairly mild bitterness. Fair enough, buy far from a favourite.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. The colour is hazy, dark amber with a big, beige head. Aroma with pine, harpix, grass, citrus and some grapefruit and alcohol. Has a malty flavour with more grassy hops, grapefruit, pine, alcohol and hints of DMS. Rich and slick mouth feel, and has a heavy bitterness. A powerful DIPA that feels a bit unbalanced with a heavy bitter aftertaste. Hop heads paradise.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had this from the bottle.
Aroma has sweet caramel malt and a heavy but subdued bitterness to it.
Taste has Digestive crackers, caramel malt, sweet notes, grapefruit bitterness, pine resin.
Full body, soft carbonation, round a a bit sticky.
Long grapefruit bitter after taste.
I guessed this was a Barley Wine or an American Strong Ale when I had it but it revealed itself as an old DIPA when I looked it up. Nonetheless, very good!

Bottle at home from Berlin Beer Shop. Pours a hazy light brown with a small off-white head. Sweet and bitter. Some hoppy sprucy hops aromas. Seems like it lost some hops aromas. Full bodied. Medium to soft carbonation. Bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sehr intensiver Zitrus-Hopfen (Cascade?) mit einem leicht muffigen Unterton. Pfirsich und weißer Traubensaft. Im Geschmack dann sehr geb und trocken mit einer lang anhaltenden Bittere, trotzdem noch süß. Im Nachtrunk leicht adstringierend. Etwas kantig, aber insgesamt gut gelungen.
