4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 24, 2014 Golden body, with small fleeting off-white head.
Aroma is wonderfully intense. Fresh dank hops, grapefruit, mango, pine, some sweet caramel malt. Soft carbonation, with silky medium/full body.
Quite sweet initial burst, with peach, citrus, pine, alcohol before a moderate-bitterness takes hold. Very dank. Sweet malt balances the beer beautifully. A little short on the finish for my palate but lovely nevertheless. Nice and fresh in taste and flavor. Chewy and luscious, with a slight nudge from the alcohol. Quality big beer. Did not disappoint.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Kaapse Fest, small sample. Slight hazy golden color, short frothy head. Aroma of big piney hops, citrus, grapefruit, slight biscuity malt. Big bold bitterness, pine again. Great IIPA, although I dont know if I could handle a bomber of this stuff. Probably burns holes in your stomach. But for a small sipper, it’s delicious.
