3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sensoric. Bottle. Clear amber with small to medium, white head. Medicore head retention and poor lacing. Medium aroma of tropical fruits, in the second raw some citrus (grapefruit) notes. Taste is high bitter from the beginning till the end of degustation. Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, finish is highly bitter and dry. In general solid IIPA, which I like - bitter and dry, not overload with malts.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with average, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Piney, hoppy aroma with a touch of glue, condensed notes of orange and candied orange zest, some lemongrass, cautious hints of green Thai curry, liquorice. Taste is biting bitter hoppy, resinous and piney, caramel malty basis with almond touch, chalky overtones. Dense and concentrated - may work as nutrition for astronauts, but not for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark yellow beer, a head is small and blond. Aroma has caramel malts, peaches, some tropical notes and pine. Taste has caramel malts, the bitterness is nicely balancing the sweetness, pine, some herbs. Long lasting bitterness. Medium+ bodied, not sticky. Not so fresh anymore, probably quite old bottle. The strong bitterness is balancing this caramelly DIPA.

Piwo złoto-pomarańczowe. Mętne. Piana obfita, szybko opada, umiarkowanie lepi szkło. W aromacie ziarniste, toasty, karmelki pomarańcze. Alkohol dobrze schowany. Goryczka wysoka choć niższa niż można by się było spodziwać. Przyjemne.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Whole Foods Market - 12 oz bottle. Slightly sparkling, medium copper pour, quickly fading off-white head. Resiny, hoppy, aroma with some pungent spruce notes, a touch of booziness. Full-bodied flavor, more malt oriented than hop centric with some maple syrup stickiness, a touch of caramel, some brief citrus bitterness in the back end. thick, sticky mouthfeel. Decent but glad this was a 12’er rather than a bomber.
