9th July 2016: on-tap in the Mikkeller Bar Barcelona with the RBESG guys. Hazy pour to the orange/amber brew, white head. Tropical fruits in the nose, more citrusy in the taste, fairly bitter with a strong hop bias. Drying aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Changkat, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a cloudy light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is big citrus fruit, hops and alcohol. The flavour is strong bitter with a big crisp, fruity, alcohol, light floral hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A big hoppy alcohol bomb for sure but there is thankfully no burn.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
9%ABV. double IPA.
Tapped out cloudy Amber. 8ºSRM.
Nose is heavily spicy and alcoholic with the the juniper of gin. Pine and dark resin. There is a sweet almost lactic aroma that suggests sweet yogurt or honeyed milk. There is also cinnamon, nutmeg, five spice. There is also a nice ume plum sour with a preserved, medicinal dryness.
Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate is spicy with nutmeg, cinnamon, coriander, chilies, curry powder. Strong resinous aromas and palate almost like drinking in freshly curing epoxy. Hops are bitter and spicy. The grain palate has some nice sweet ripe figs, dates and raisin sweetness.
Finish is medium for hops and long on alcohol. Funky funky funky. Not my thing, but I don’t want to discourage experimentation.

Solid DIPA. Fruity, bitter, long fnish... not a whole lot of say. Pretty standard fare, but done with the usual Mikkeller quality.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at When Pigs Fly. Hazy golden/ amber color, thin head. Aroma is a nice blend of pine and tropical fruits. Thankfully this never becomes overly sweet like many Imperial IPA’s can become. The fruity hops hit the palate 1st and then a transition into a deep lasting pine in the finish. The only negative is the ABV is rather noticeable. Still all elements considered it is a nicely constructed hop bomb.
