3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 oz bottle: pours clear, deep golden orange, fluffy, fine off white head. Fair amount of lacing. Nose is grapefruit, apricot, herbal, caramel malts, resin hops. More of the same on the palate, fluffy, bubbles coming to the surface, thick. Spicy, resinous hops and huge alcohol burn on a huge finish that lingers. Sweet then spicy. Real nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Cask P&C, London. It pours a slightly hazy deep golden orange color with nice creamy off-white head. Aroma is hop forward with tropical fruits and peaches over a nice caramely malty backbone. Taste is nicely balanced between the bitter hoppy notes and the sweetness from malt and alcohol. Mango, papaya, violets, grass, caramel, spices, pink peppercorns and a tad of acidity that gives great drinkability to a 10% ABV beer. Mouthfeel is oily with good carbonation. Overall, this would be a nice DIPA in its own merit, but spices and that slight acidity make it unique and amazing.
