Io sono di parte perchè adoro, tutto quello che è sfacciatamente extra ipa, e questa fa il caso mio. Aroma spettacolare, attraente e invitante, mentre in bocca è bella versione ti asfalto il palato. Bella bella

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(330ml bottle shared @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Dec 11 2015) Pours a quite hazy medium orange with lots of sediment in bottle and a big lingering white head with lace. Aroma of bright mandarin, grapefruit peel, mango, kiwi and other tropical fruit, a little resinous and leafy, clean and juicy with light sweetness. On the palate, pretty juicy and bright as well with a cleanly sweet pale malt core, orange and other citrus flavours mixing with some tropical fruit and a little gooseberry, with leafy, slightly dank and earthy pine notes. Finish has moderately high bitterness with lots of citrus peel and fruit flavours lingering. Medium-full body with fairly high, mouth filling carb. Very little alcohol. Nice balanced DIPA here, nothing revolutionary but solid and easy-drinking.

Bottle as a birthday gift from Pix. Cheers! Pours a hazy orange colour with a nice frothy off white head. The aroma has orange and pine notes. The taste is lightly spicy with more orangey citrus, pine, caramel. Reminds me. Alittle of jaffa cakes. The alcohol is well hidden. Very tasty.

330 ml bottle from Gallagher’s Beer World/El Irlandés. Pours a nice, cloudy orange color with a massive frothy white head that diminishes slowly and laces amazingly well. Aroma is strong, intensely hoppy and fruity, lush, fresh and clears your air for breathing. Fresh notes of grapefruit, peaches, oranges, pommegranate, lemongrass, a bit of resin (Simcoe hops?), watermelon and prickly pear. Loads of citrusy touches too. Very clean, bright, characterful and aromatic. Taste is crisp, loaded with fruity flavors and fine semi-bitterness. A mellow fruity sweetness allows it to achieve a great balance. Notes of orange, mellon, grapefruit and peach nectar. Hints of citrus. Finish is slightly boozy and it’s the first time you feel the high alcohol content. Medium body, medium carbonation. The high alcohol noticeable in the finish turns this into something close to a Barley Wine just during the last few seconds. Slightly confusing between extremely fresh character and alcoholic finish. If it were just 6% ABV it would be a world-class IPA. But it’s still a very fine IIPA as is.
