3oz sample at Expo Cerveza Mexico 2014. An opaque golden beer with a white foamy head and some lacing. It has a floral aroma with a lot of grapefruit and citrics. Taste is bitter with a strong floral finish. Faint carbonation and considerable astringency. Strong aftertaste that reminds me of mint.

330 ml bottle @ Fox and Hounds, Aabenraa. Unclear orange body with a with a fine off-white head. Aroma has malt, citric fruit, caramel, apricot, hint of rubber and the the unmistakable sorachi ace. Flavor is smooth malty, some caramel, citric fruit, pine, herbs and toast. Feels actually more sweet than bitter. Balanced body and decent aftertaste. A bit odd as an DIPA, not really that bitter but nice and interesting enough.

33cl bottle probably from Drink Shop, Tallinn. Pours just slightly hazy golden to amber with an off-white head. Rather fruity and slightly candy like aroma with caramel, some floral notes, sweet tropical fruits and hints of pine and herbs. Sweet with fairly fruity and some almost unpleasant flavours and a decent bitterness. Perfectly decent, but not a beer I would look for to have a second time.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coloração ambar mel turvo, espuma branca de pouca persistência.
Aroma de malta, com pão doce, panetone, notas de frapefruit, maracujá e herbal.
Na boca bom equilíbrio entre amargor e dulçor, final seco. Notas de malte não caramelado e leve herbal.
O álcool se destaca um pouco, mas tem boa drinkability.
