3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Backlogged rating: Golden hue with some head. The beer profile is mango, pineapple, resin, pine, grainy and slight caramel. Lots of biscuity and fruity notes. Lively and aggressive mouthfeel, slight booze. Overall solid brew but nothing all that memorable.

Doesn’t feel like an 9,5% abv beer at all. The body is a bit thin anyway, more like a regular strong IPA than a DIPA maybe?

Draft at the ginger man. Pours clear yellow with minimal head. The aroma is big pine and big floral notes. The taste has medium bitter with a nice orange and grapefruit balance. Alcohol is masked.

Pours clear gold with a medium creamy white head...great lacing. Aroma is very herbal and smells of grass, sticky icky, and light citrus. Flavor follows suit...very herbal and green tasting. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry grassy/herbal finish. Very nice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355 ml, bottled. Shared. Pours cloudy amber with small white head. Aroma: Apricot, canned peach. Fruity overall. Zesty hop notes. Taste: Quite sweet, low bitterness in taste but has more of that in aftertaste. Palate: Near medium body, some carbonation. Somewhat interesting DIPA, atypical one. Aftertaste is the best part

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale golden color, thin body.
Weak aromas and a thin weak taste. Not as hoppy as I was expecting it to be. Also the lack of malt and the presence of rice makes the beer kinda tasteless.
