3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a translucent light copper color with a small white head that slowly recedes to a film. The aroma is big and bold with oranges, clementines and grapefruit. The flavor is not nearly as citrusy as the nose would suggest, there is a good dose of pine in the forefront, with moderate oranges and grapefruit filling in the back end. The malt base was unremarkable from a flavor standpoint. Palate is full and silky with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering bitter grapefruit and pine. Overall: The nose is first-rate, but the piney aspect of the flavor did not really grab me. The bitterness comes across as a bit harsh, that aside its a nice little DIPA.

Alla spina. Color biondo-aranciato, schiuma bianca soffice. Profumata e fruttata, una DIPA cremosa e "classica" amara ma ben equilibrata con quel caratteristico tocco caramellato che emerge tra i luppoli.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Yay IPA day! Pours a hazy light amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is a bit stale and grassy, which makes some sense with a 4/27 date on it. Taste is bitter and a bit dry, and almost ends up leaving you more parched. Not a fan of this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Opaque amber color, rich off-white head. Sweet hop aroma. Strong, hoppy flavor with grapefruit. Full body, medium carbonation. Classic example of the style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber with a large head.
Nose shows pine, resinous hops, and sweet-smelling clean malt.
Flavours include more pine and resinous hops as well as soft spicy and grapefruit notes. Also some light clean malt followed by an aggressive bitterness.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle from Beer Cartel. Hazy amber beer, thick off-white head., decent lace. Aroma and taste is like an early morning stroll through a grapefruit orchard followed by a pine forest, with some caramel malt counterbalance. Medium-full body with a big dry resinous hop bitterness and the ABV hardly noticeable. A hop monster!

On tap at Bloodhound Bar. Great example of the style, heaps of hop flavour and aroma, a decent alcohol punch. Liked it a lot.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is tart clove, citrus, grapefruit and pine needles. Taste if a deep hop profile that overshadows the light malt sweetness. Tart is left with some light funk. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.
