3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pours a brownish gold, low head and lacing. Pleasant aroma of raisins and grass, with alcohol smell thrown in. Flavor is raisins, a touch of floral, then grain and alcohol. You can definitely tell its high test by the aroma and flavor.

Pours clear golden color with a small head. Resinous hops and orange on the nose, mild grassy and malty notes. Very fruity flavor with lots of caramel, not too sweet though. Feels quite fresh and and crisp too. A tasty DIPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
946 ml kæmpe-dåse. Tak til Martin. Klar, gylden og klistret med et mindre hvidt skum og en lige så klistret, greasy aroma af sød karamel, fyrnåle, gran, humlesved, eksotiske frugter og harpiks. Meget sød og fyldig i munden, med tydelig alkohol. Lidt for meget af det hle, men ikke dårlig.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
946ml can from Petaluma Market. How big is this can?!?! Anyway the beer.... Light Brown, looks like weak tea. Big white head. Aroma is of sweets and pine. Bitter start, grapefruit centre with a fair bit of malt present. Massively bitter finish which stays with you. Very alcoholic, still tasty but lacks a bit of hop balance. Decent enough though.

From a bottle. Cloudy copper colour with a orange white head, big floral aroma, huge fruity citrus flavours with a big warming slug from the huge alcohol content.

Nice sharply bitter ale with abundant fluffy head. Hoppy aroma, some pine, some grapefruit. Taste is pure up front hops, tingling on the tongue, bitter abrupt hops finish, with tongue still tingling.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.355 l, at Kitty’s, 20140625) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, tangerine, alcohol and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, alcohol, tangerine, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, boozy and bitter. A boozier version of the PA of the same brewery. Lacking balance.
