Bottled. Aroma of floral hops dominates. Color is honey hazy golden copper. Taste is awesome! Initial malt becomes hoppy in anfew seconds and finishes with a long lasting hoppy aftertaste. The hops becomes really strong after a minute or two of swallowing. Alcohol warming, deceptive. Overall a good imperial IPA.

Pours copper with white head. Aroma is exotic fruits, pine, honey and birch. It’s the whole of the forest in here! Flavour is heavy bitter, light to medium sweet, fruity and fresh. Very, very nice DIIPA.

500mL bottle from Wine Centre Kilkenny. Pours an orange juice like dull amber into the tulip glass, small off white head that dissipates quickly, good lacing on the glass. Reminds me of some of the Stone Brewing DIPA’s in the aroma, definitely an American style Imperial, big grapefruit and tropical fruit hop aromas plus a pretty sizeable malt backbone. Taste is all bitter grapefruit and floral hops up front. Finish is smoother than expected due to the bready, cereal like malt foundation. Big oily mouthfeel with keeps the bitterness on the tongue long after the sip is over. Impressive.

Hefe rauf und runter, aber zumindest keine Banane, wenn auch schwer und süß. Gewöhnungsbedürftig mit einer guten Prise Früchte und Sämigkeit. Kann man trinken, aber eigentlich nix Besonderes.

Bottle from trade with Meilby - many thanks to you, Kenni! The beer pours out in a cloudy dirty amber colour with fat yeast chunks ( one really looked like a face!), smooth body and steady head. Aroma of yeast and hops. Taste of sweet yeast, overripe fruits, wheat, light hops and bread. Sweet-yeasty finish. Too sweet for me.
