Pours a hazy golden orange on tap with nice white head and decent lacing. Aroma is citrus hops and a nice malty backbone. Taste is spicy, but I think itís a little of the good juju still in the lines. Not site if I got a proper taste is this, but Iíll rate it add I see it, thanks to world of beer.

When I first looked at the label I thought this was a homage beer to that bloody awful poodle rock band from the 80s. Anyway, bottle from Oddbins Beer Shop, Blackheath. Copper coloured pour with a white head.Honey, marmalade and sweet citrus aroma and taste. Boozy mouthfeel. Bitter fruit finish. Tasty.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a semi-hazy burnt amber color with a one finger foamy head that dissipates pretty quickly. A tight filmy coat of lacing clings to the glass nicely and eventually slides into the beer.
The smell started off with some dried sweet and bitter pine. Light citrusy tones slide in underneath. Light caramel malt rides in even slighter than the citrusy tones.
The taste was mainly bitter dry arranging the sweet citrusy fruits in with the caramel malts. Thereís a slight dry citrusy aftertaste running into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation feels fairly low allowing the dryness to really hit my tongue.
Overall, its an okay DIPA, probably not one to seek out again, but definitely do-able.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear, dark, golden-amber, with good-sized head that dissipates rapidly. Aroma is quite muted: some floral notes, some hops, some sugar/candy smells. Flavor is rather sweet, with a lot of hop bitterness, some grassiness, some citrus, even a touch of anise. Almost verging closer to a barley wine, actually.

Nose is caramel malt, bitter orange, toasted malt, citric pith, light spice.
Taste comprises earthy hops, caramel malt, bitter orange, straw, bready notes.

Draught at TNT. Dark amber pour with almost no head. Aroma has more sweet caramel notes than hops. Same with the flavour, though there is decent bitterness. Needs more hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is malty and you get the usual apricot, citrus and exotic references. Taste is kinda balanced out, really good Imperial IPA - but streamlined in a way. You donít get that overwhelming sensations. Sure, thereís hoppy bitterness with grapefruit accentuations and caramelly sugars. Floral and a nice malt profile. In the end, itís a good solid double IPA, but nothing that makes you rip of your clothes and run down the street reciting power ballad lyrics.
