4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500m bottle @Bierhof, Athens. Pours hazy orange/amber with some particles, rich lasting off-white head, medium to full body, rich oily mouth feel, dry and bitter finish with some hints of sour aftertaste. Malts and hops mix wonderfully and give a very balanced Imperial IPA. Caramel sweetness and, at times, bread combined with citrusy aromas like orange and bitter fruit peels, tints of apricot and exotic fruits. Very tasty, very drinkable. Great!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In bottiglia. Data di produzione antecedente di un anno rispetto alla data di consumo. Aromi di caramello, mou, biscotto seguiti da erbaceo, resinoso. Al palato corpo rotondo, molta dolcezza con caramello eccessivo ed in evidenza con di nuovo biscotto. Alcool percettibile e nel finale arriva un amaro non troppo aggraziato, molto graffiante, erbaceo, resinoso, terroso con solo un ricordo della luppolatura che fu.

bottle shared amongst beer afficionados. A well balanced IPA, getting very close to a noble barley wine though. Very rich, very nice.

Bottle. Pours golden, with a small creamy head. Aroma is bitter, followed by nice tropical hops with mango, apricots pineapples and lychee. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is bitter hops with grapefruit, resin, orange peel and peaches, as well as light roasted malts with toffee and floral notes. Sweetly hoppy finish, with a nice lingering bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle, many thanks to Gunnar! Pours a deep burnt orange with off white head. Orange boiled sweet aroma. Perhaps a little too slick and overly hopped for me. Lots of orange but it becomes a bit overpowering, sticky & boozy to be enjoyable. Disappointing.
