3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is light fruity with resiny and piney notes. Taste is heavy, yet crisp fresh hops, loads of resiny hops as well covering the caramel malty body, nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks! Pours clear amber with an off-white head. Hoppy and fairly malty, pine, hints of grapefruit and a fair amount of caramel. Very sweet with a fairly harsh bitterness, messy mixture of hoppy and malty flavours. Not a favourite in my book, but fair enough.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy, medium amber body with an off-white, long-lived head, good lacing. Strong hoppy aroma of overripe tropical fruits, especially mango, but also pineapple and orange further behind. Sweet caramel is also evident, and there are spices in the back. Strong flavour of tropical fruits with grapefruit and pine in the long finish. Quite a lot of caramel and a bit too sweet toffee (bordering on butterscotch) in the back. It’s quite sweet, but also magnificently bitter. Pleasant mouthfeel, full-bodied, smooth and oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice DIPA, although it would have been even better with less toffee.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy red-orange colour with a big, compact, beige head. Aroma of pine, fruity hops, grapefruit, butterscotch, diacetyl and mowned grass. The flavour has lots of grassy hops, pine, grapefruit and leather. Has a rich and slick mouth feel, and a heavy bitterness. A solid DIPA, but too bad with the diacetyl, and the taste feels a little unbalanced with all the hops. Every hophead would love this though.
