3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A novel idea but this beer is off on several marks. The aroma is interesting but my expectations were much more citrus and floral complexity. The taste is a bit syrupy with some taste of soap. The bitterness is far from what is on the label. I have tasted more hops is many different IPAs. The taste is also a bit one dimensional. A fantastic brewer but not their best effort....

Bottle in Tilley’s Bar, Newcastle. Ruby with a frothy cream head. Nice pine aroma. The taste is big hoppy and dank with a big bitter hoppy pine flavour. Amazing.

Bottle. Reddish brown with minimal head. Heavy malt aromas, nuts and grassy/spicy hops. Massive malt bill with nuts and caramel, interwoven with an incredible amount of resinous bitterness. The bitterness hangs around on the finish forever.

330ml bottle in a tulip - pours a hazy dark orange with a nice head. Nose is very grassy with slight floral notes. Aftertaste is very dry and has a nice bitterness to it. After the last sip, the bitterness stays in your mouth for another 10-20 secs which is impressive. Very good beer for those who like dry and bitter IPAs.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
WYGLĄD: Barwa miedziana, mętne. Piana wysoka, drobna, trwała, pięknie zdobi szkło.
AROMAT: Intensywny. Absolutna dominacja cytrusów (grejpfruty). W tle nuty karmelu, ziół, a także owoców tropikalnych (papaja, mango).
SMAK: Cytrusowo-ziołowe z przyjemnym karmelową bazą. Posmak, tak samo jak goryczka - cytrusowa - wysoka, nieznacznie zalegająca. Pijalne, a alkohol jest niemal niezauważalny!
OGÓLNIE: Tego nie da się opisać słowami. To zwyczajnie "czuć", że mamy do czynienia z czymś nietuzinkowym. Chapeau bas!

Small is sweet with peach apricot and melon with some bread like ending. Dark amber to brown. Taste of over ripe peach and bready malt taste some bitterness shining through at the end. Full body mild carbonation. Good IIPA BUT claiming to have 1000 IBU is in my opinion false. The malts come through more than that of a good tropical or citrus rind bitterness. For what I was expecting I don’t think it was worth $9 a bottle.

9.6%ABV. Imperial IPA.
Poured out a deep amber. 16°SRM.
Nose has some honey sweet floral aromas. I am reminded of honey, roses, ripe citrus.
Palate is Sweet malt. Barley bread. Toffee. Caramel and a richness and slight cloying funkiness of the syrupy sweetness of ripe dark fruit or honeyed stone fruit.
Finish is beautifully balanced with an aggressive hyssop-y hop, full of raw pine needles and vegetal primal bitter.

On tap at Csakajosor Budapest. Looks great, nice bouquet of foamy head and amber brown color. Sweaty socks and big hop aroma. All your palate is belong to us. Hop wrecking beer. Kinda over this idea personally. At first refreshing hops but quickly heads to unbalanced hop wrestlemania. Maybe a fun experiment but not a beer i?d drink routinely. Like a novelty at this point. Have to admit that they probavly axhieved their goal, but it?s just a wee bit over the top.
