3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden orange with a thick and creamy off-white head. Sweet aroma of orange zest, herbs, dried fruit and honey. Full body, oily feel, medium carbonation. Taste starts off very rich and vinous with lots of hops and some alcohol before moving towards caramel, malt and citrus. I wouldn’t be surprised if I woke up next morning with this looong and bittersweet finish. A real powerhouse IIPA.

Taste is similar with caramel and fruity notes. Final bitterness still present but without particular flavors. Medium body, medium carbonation. Should have had it fresher.

A great round, hoppy, fruity aroma. Colour is very beautiful: dark cloudy orange. The taste is very complex and quite interesting, the bitterness is very well balanced. I just thought it’s a little bit too sweet. But overally a great beer!

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2015 Bottle, dipa and barley wine at the same time. Sweetness and bitterness, dry malty finish, that’s just a little aftertaste but on tap aftertaste and aroma is better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A surprisingly dark beer. Brown really, with sediment in the glass. This might be an older bottle, but I am trying not to blame the beer for that. Lots of malt, brown sugar flavors. Dusty, dry hops, some basement mustiness. Full flavored, but I am sure the hops have lost their brightness with too much time in this bottle.
