3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber with a nice two fingered head. A lot of sediment in this one, a positive sign in my eyes. Aroma is malty for the style with obvious grapefruit and spicy overtone. Flavor has a nice yeasty malt bill up front and rolls over into a tangy citrus rind bitterness. There is a slight metallic aftertaste. Lightly carbonated, it goes down fairly smooth. Overall, a solidly made DIPA. I would definitely try again.

The only thing that lacked was that there was a lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Half way through, I didn't even notice.

Aromas of citrusy and resinous hops, and some honeyed malts. Hazy orange with a lasting minimal white head. Dry, well balanced with a round malt bill supporting the hops. Medium bodied, finishes clean.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Deep orange colour, off white head. This is a malt-heavy IIPA, with a sweeter profile, still with an abundance of hops, ending with an aspirin-like bitterness.

From a bottle. Deep cloudy amber colour, lasting small off white head, big malty aroma with hints of fruit. Sharp fruit and malty flavours with a warming lingering aftertaste. It is definitely for those that like a big robust flavour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty tasty, it did not have as much of a hops punch that I was expecting. Was a tad bit to malt forward for my taste. The stone fruit notes were nice though.
