3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at Craft & Draft, Amsterdam, 29 Aug 2015) Hazy orange amber colour with brief, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, resin and mandarin. Malty, hoppy taste with orange peel, grapefruit, resin, lots of citrus peel and a solid citric bitterness in a finish with a slight alcohol glow. Full body, with a certain sweetness. Solid and well made IIPA with loads of citric hops. A touch of alcohol, but it’s mainly hidden underneath the hops. Very nice.

The taste is exquisite with faint caramel, sweet sugar, citrus, peach, pineapple and a faint shade of pine needles. From the start, it offers hoppy flavor and the aroma citrus touches also promises strong hops. With its 11.5% alcohol production and heavy hops, this beer from start disqualify beer drinkers that not love too much hop. This is an Imperial IPA with large terms of both taste and strength. The hops are aggressive from the start and the taste leaves only aftertaste of hops.
