light amber color; wonderful citrusy hop aroma; great, bitter, piney, citrusy hop flavor on a medium bodied bready malt base and a dry, bitter aftertaste; pretty easy drinking for such a high gravity beer

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours from 12oz bottle a clear golden-yellow, huge sparkly fuzzy white head. Big bubbles at the surface. Big perfumed nose of orange blossoms, crushed floral notes, slight citrus, creamy hops. The flavour is somewhat spicy, grassy, citrusy, caramel, biscuit, peach orange, and light black pepper notes with a medium bitter finish. Chewy bitter resinous fruit and dank tones. Really nice DIPA..

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From QC. Translucent gold-amber with thick white bubbly head and foamy head. Smells very bitter, piney, becomes floral and caramel malt as it warms up. Taste is, again, very piney and bitter. Dry, especially in the finish. Body is spicy, slightly foamy. A very dry, bitter IIPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A touch on the light side in body and color, but it opens up nicely. Aroma and flavors of peach and tropical fruits, slightly herbal and aromatic, with a dry finish. 7/13-maybe even better on tap brewery fresh...more peach and a denser aroma, but I’ll leave as is. For now :)"

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from QClub at home. Clear deep golden amber pour. Aroma is deep resinous hops - good. Taste is very very bitter hops at the beginning. Resin and pine. Too bitter and then a bit too sweet before a slight boozy finish. Not bad for the price (~HK$25) but not a DIPA I'd look for again.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transfer from BA review on 6-9-13
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance- The beer pours a nice amber color with a two finger white head. The head has great retention, slowly fading to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is sweet and fruity with some nice more citrus and pine hop smells. The sweet is of a caramel mixed with lots of tropical fruits of mango, papaya and tangerine which when mixed with the hop smells is very nice.
Taste – The taste begins with a malty and slightly sweet flavor upfront with some notes of caramel and light tropical fruits. A citrus hop is present upfront consisting mainly of a grapefruit but also a little bit of lemon. As the flavor advances flavors of a grassy and light pine hop also come to the tongue. While the sweetness gets a bit stronger in the middle of the taste, at the end it lessens, leaving a rather nice, drier, and moderately bitter flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the medium to slightly thicker side with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly lower side. Both are great for the hoppy flavors of the brew.
Overall – A rather tasty brew overall with good transitions between sweet and hoppy throughout the taste.

Pours a pale copper color, small amount of foamy head that left rings down the glass. Just the right amount of bittering with a citrusy and dry finish. Very drinkable double IPA.

Clear dark gold in the glass. Just looking at the glass on the table I can detect aroma notes of Sweet Tarts and tropical fruit notes. Nice bitter citrus flavor with a hint of asprin finishing with a minty citrus aftertaste. Overall, a decent Imperial IPA.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2014 (Bottle) Slight funky aroma. Surprisingly sweet taste with a medium but long-lasting bitter finish. It’s okay but there are much better IIPAs out there.
