Whilst I thought this was good, it didn’t really knock my socks off as I thought it might. Quite a sweet palate detracted from the beer for me. I love seeing what this brewery does and I would try this again, their philosophy is fantastic, they make whatever they feel like.

Ful apricot-golden colour with some semblance of a white head. That it was hazy was probably my own fault for pouring in a bit of sediment as well. Never mind. Like several imperial IPAs I have had it has a good nose full of spruce, stonefruit and alcohol. Good carbonation and a deceiving palate: there aren’t many indicators that this beer has a high alcohol content. Dangerously drinkable. Plenty of hop characters and a great deal of bitterness. The finish brings that astringent "I’ve had a faceful of hops" quality. Good, drinkable beer and worthy of the accolade its home brewing creator earned. Well done that man.

Good imperial IPA. Supposedly a Pliny the Elder clone, but more malt forward and less grassy. Still pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in Perth, WA. Sweet, malty aroma with some orange fruit. Flavour had more caramel and fruit, before a dryish finish with a noticeable alcohol kick. Fine.

Bottle from the Abner Ale House. Pours hazy golden orange with small white head. Aromas of mangos, peaches, grapefruit, yeast, and bready malts. Flavors of bitter hops, grapefruit, tropical fruits, light yeast, and bread. Has a nice body and bitterness. Pretty solid I must say.

50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Nordic. Rated on 13.03.2011
Aroma has lots of hops with exotic fruits and hints of caramel. Flavour is sweetish with exotic fruits, hops, biscuits and caramel. I like the bite of hops here, otherwise this would be just another DIPA.

500 mL bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus hops, herbal notes, caramel malts and and a bit of a chlorine note. The taste is big citrus hops with big toffeeish malts. Medium-full bodied. Nice beer.
