3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clean, developed looks, with small off white head. Surely a hop aroma, but not quite as pronounced as I expected. Certainly a mix of American and European hops, with a herbal notes dominating over some tropical fruit. Taste is surely bitter enough, ’American clean’ and lingering. Not very layered. Big beer with big taste and an aroma that has faded a bit or never was quite the freshness I hoped for. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Pours a slightly murky copper with a white lacing. The smell is a hop explosion. Bitter hop taste with a hint of alcohol.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky mahogany with practically no head.. looks like barley wine. Strong aroma of burnt caramel malt with hops, lots syrup and dark bread, would not say this is inviting aroma but nuanced it is. Lots more hops in flavor than one would expect by aroma, pine, earthy type flavor, reminds woods, long bitter taste that is semisweet, low carbonation. Interesting but not one of my favorites by this great brewery.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dobre i zapach to prawdziwa bomba zapachowa. Aromaty granatu, soku z porzeczek, grejfruta i kwaskowatej limonki. Az 6 roznych odmian chmielu wiec musialo byc bardzo aromatyczne, a w smaku dobrze ale az za duzo tych chmielno gozkich i cytrusowych smakow, slodowosc mimo to zaznaczona i komponuje sie w miare dobrze z aromatycznoscia i gozkoscia. Wyglad natomiast przecietny, kolor jasny, bez osadu i pecherzykowa srednia nietrwala piana.

dark orange colour, moderate off-white head, which disappears quickly leaving back some lacing; aroma of citrussy-tropical-piney hops with some bready maltyness; taste of exterminatory bitterness with some maltyness and hints of alcohol; I love it!

On tap at Beer Temple. Hazy orange colour, off white head. Aroma of pine, resin, spruce, hint of citrus, just light malty. Flavour is very bitter, light malty, light floral sweetness, mostly just pine and spruce, grass. Medium-bodied. Harsh. I like my (D)IPA’s to be fruity, not to be like a walk in a pine forest.
