4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a great clear copper with a small but tight off-white head and moderate carbonation. Real flavour bomb in the nose with lots of tropical fruits - pawpaw, guava, lime, maybe a little mango - along with some pine needles. Big taste too, with a decent slap of piney hop bitterness up front that slips away to more tropical fruit, pepper, cinnamon and lemon. Lovely palate and beautifully balanced flavours. Great stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, coffee, toasty notes and some hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a slight toasty and strong bitter finish. Nice one!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Deep muddy amber. Aroma is perfume of floral hops. Terrific full body palate. I was expecting an overpowering hop Ipa, but this brew is very well balanced. Slight sweetness in the initial sip of honey. The high abv is almost completely unnoticeable. I was a little hesitant to buy it at the market for $3.5 per bottle, but this brew delivers. Excellent IPA!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle, sent from Neillago (thanks a lot, Neil), pours a fairly clear dark copper orange with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out fairly subtle notes of piney hops, a little resin, and caramel malt. Flavour brings out loads of resinous hops, some slightly sweet residual sugars, caramel malt, and a small hint of grapefruit. Fairly restrained for a IIPA, with a solid malt backbone holding this together without being cloyingly sweet. Very good.

Bottle brought from San Fran, thx Erik!
Copper-orange pour, light white head. Caramel nose, booziness.
Fairly nutty flavour, nutmeg perhaps even. Quite sweet, candy sugar, sticky.
Mildly bitter, hoppy finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy, TylerDurden, and Rosser. Deep orange colour, light golden pillowy head. Sweet papaya and tropical fruit aroma. Very sticky, sweet palate, loaded with tropical fruit character. Just a bit too sweet for my tastes.
