3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma lost on me thanks to my sinuses. Taste is a mix of citrusy, then slightly piney hops with malt and alcohol sweetness sharing the taste about 50/50 with the hops. Very drinkable, so the ABV will sneak up on you. Good DIPA, a bit malty sweet for my taste.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head and mild lacing. Smells of berries, copper, fruit. Tastes like a hundred flavors, really really flavorful, one of the best tasting I’ve had. Perfectly balanced. A little copper taste in the aftertaste is the only knock I have on this one.

Bottle. Golden copper color. Aroma of caramel, mild pine and resinous hop. Soft taste of bitter caramelised malt, pine, herbs, some grapefruit and a very bitter finish. Allright.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2016 Bottle at home. Almost clear golden colour, offwhite firm creamy head. Big spruce, resinous pine, grassy, herbal, grapefruit, sweet malty backbone, crisp and beautifully building bitterness. Lingering spruce, pine aftertaste. Big body, low carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Maybe a tat too sweet, but a very decent DIPA.

Left coast hop juice very hazy orange color. Tiny, frothy head. Sweet, very malty forward aroma but it also gives some hopy notes in the back, notes of super matured mango and pineapple. Exactly same thing in taste. Would say it’s classic, already classic imperial IPA. Sweet and hoppy. Missed that. Might be much more bitter though. But on the other hand further you go with the glass, more bitter it feels. Really good. And the way alcohol is hidden - masterpiece.
