3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle from Randall’s. Pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a small bone white head that quickly settles into a decent ring with some film. Aroma of soapy, resinous hops, sweet malts, toffee, straw, cereal, grass, and some tropical fruits. Flavor of loads and loads of tropical and citrus fruits, sugary sweet caramel malts, corn syrup, resinous hops, and some grassy, earthy bitterness. Medium-full bodied, with a syrupy, chewy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Definitely too sweet but still pretty interesting DIPA. Big, very big.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours copper / orange with a large dense soapy head. The aroma has a lot of sweet syrupy malt along with hoppiness of tropical fruit, green onions, funk and citrus. Nice aroma, but too sweet for me. Medium / thick body that’s pretty slick until the carbonation comes in at the finish. The flavor starts with lots of thick cloying syrupy maltiness, some toast and very piny earthy hops along with the hop traits of the aroma. The finish is a mix of syrup and resin. Nice IIPA, but I prefer them much drier than this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Botella. Hazy deep orange colour witha white head. Aroma of hops big time indeed, sweet like ripe fruit and pine. Good mouthfeel. Flavour is very hoppy with pine and ripe fruit indeed, caramel and malt, quite sweet and very bitter and dry. Gives a bit of a throat burn. Too much for my hop likings.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy golden amber with a huge white head that hangs around the top as a thick cap for the duration and leaves excellent lacing.
Aroma is aggressively hoppy with a combination of white grapefruit, pineapple and pine resin. There is a sweet maltiness that emerges after the initial blast of hops.
The taste doesn’t quite live up to the aroma, at least in terms of the juicy citrus, which is lacking in the taste. The bitterness takes on a more abrasive, boozy feel in the taste with the citrus being more subtle. Little bit of caramel malts in the background.
Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and pretty sticky on the palate with soft carbonation.
This one started out great with look and even smell but I don’t think the taste is well integrated enough for this to be considered great. Tasty but not one I’ll revisit.
