Bottle at home. Dark orange amber, thick white head fades to nothing. Big floral citrus nose, hint of orange. Palate is hop-forward, juicy pithy grapefruit with a hint of sweet malts. Big bitter finish. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2013 50cl bottle. Pours rusty orange with huge off white head. Aroma full of waxy orange, pithy grapefruit, pineapple, papaya, floral notes and some sweet malt. Taste is of zesty orange, mango, pithy bitter grapefruit, some slightly perfume-like floral notes, light caramel malt sweetness, and a touch of bready yeast. Lovely DIPA with a long and satisfying pithy, waxy bitter aftertaste: very good stuff.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very tasty double ipa. One of my favourites. The alcohol is there, but not too strong. Floral citrus abounds. Nicely bitter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gold pour with white head and lace. Aroma dominated by resiny hops. Sweet malty start that drives to a perfumy front and ends in a resiny bitter. Medium bodied but a tad fizzy.
