4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow. This was really interesting. Not as crazy intense as you might expect but if you don’t enjoy hops you aren’t going to like what this brings to the table. Pours a deep amber with a nice white head. Big hops on the nose but of course that is to be expected. Very herbal indeed. Lots of hops on the palate but not just bitter, strong presence of floral and citrus notes from the hops as well. I was really expecting this beer to be over the top but it was really tasty. Complex and herbal. Worth a try.

Bottle at Gents Bierfestival. Very hoppy offcourse, earthy, tropical, mango, very strong bitterness. Absolutely love this one. Don’t drink anything else after this though, because your palate will be shipwrecked.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
APPEARANCE - Opaque, cloudy, foamy, lots of lacing, sediment, amber 4FH that really lasts.
AROMA/SCENT - Hops, pine.
TASTE - Hops, bitter, nutty, pine, coffee.
MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Thick, smooth, very lingering, warming, very frothy.
VALUE - $9.60 for an 11-oz bottle. A bit pricey, even for an import.
OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - 1,000 IBU is an advertising gimmick, but this beer is worth a try. It is bitter, but that’s mostly because it’s not malty at all, just zero sweetness to it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOTTLE 33 CL. Hazy red, beige head with good retention. Super sweet aroma with dank hops and a touch of alcohol. Taste: a classic rich maltiness of a really big IPA, followed by a huge grassy and pungent bitterness, with alcohol adding to the spice. Very full body, yet not at all sticky. Could be a marketing gimmick, but in the end it is a well constructed big IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very nice ruby, dark amber a bit hazy color. Nice head and lacing. Aroma: full of tropical fruits, mango, citrus, grapefruit and resin with caramel. Taste: hoppy, with earthy tones, tropical fruits mainly mango. Bitterness is really nice and strong but not lasting, it has really nice resin finish without malty base, but after a while You could taste some caramel notes. Medium carbonated and semi dry with noticable sweetness. Really good and bitter beer,

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep amber with a medium white head that lasts and leaves a lovely lacing. Aroma is ripe fruit (tropical), piney hops, very slight malts and you can almost smell the bitterness. Taste is sweet biscuit, mango, over-ripe pineapple with a mammoth bitter hop kick at the end. A very well balanced beer and an absolute must for any hop head. Comparable to some of the big American DIPAs.

Dosłownie wywar z chmielu. W zasadzie nie czuć tu nic poza chmielem. Kapitalna moc cytrusów i owoców tropikalnych delikatnie podbita zywicznością. Alkohol dobrze ukryty goryczka na poziomi takim ze juz wyżej chyba sie nie da:)

On tap. Copper color with one finger off white head. Earthy, pine and slight citrus aroma. Really hoppy, almost too much. Heavy, bitter sweet. Really big beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is clove, citrus, lemon grass and earthiness. Taste is the same with an earthiness and slight tanin I presence. Disappointed in actual bitterness as it seems far less than 1000ibus. Appearance is a sediment suspended body with a frothy pearl head that retains quite well.
