4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy dark orange color with beige head. Nice head that stays for a long time and leaves nice lacing.
Fruity smell that seems to come more from the papaya. The hops seem to me more earthy than fruity.
Sweet malts upfront in the taste, not getting too much fruit. Aftertaste is pretty bitter, lots of piney hops.
Medium body with medium carbonation. Would prefer it to be smoother...
Overall, a really nice double IPA but I don’t think that I would have noticed there is papaya in it if I didn’t know.

Cor tropical fruit brightness. If this came from the US it would be a 99 percenter. Really well made and super fun.

330ml bottle. Clearish orange with white head. Aroma is an interesting mix of fruity hoppier notes and more authentic pulp fruit notes. Sweet, fruity taste with above medium bitterness on the palate. Again a nice papaya influence. Tasty and interesting but I’ve had better double IPAs.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33l bottle. This is a light cloudy copper red colored one with a nice big lasting off-white head that’s leaving great lacework down the aides of the glass. The nose is strong and hoppy, lots of pine and pine cones here. I get a strong powerful malty backbone and small traces of ripe old fruits with citrus zest and a little grape. Smells absolutely alright. It’s super thick, chewy and oily on the mouth which the carbonation is only prickling on the tongue. Not much to say on that. It has lots of bitter nutty yeasty elements in the taste this. A bit to much for my taste. Tons of malty caramel drops, some more ripe fruits so, but the bitter yeasty is kinda ruining it a bit for me. There is also some dry leafy and dried fruits here. Ends warming, lots of nice heat from the alcohol in the finish and aftertaste. No personal favorite double IPA but definitely fair and interesting. Almost like it’s an old well aged DIPA? 26.10.2013

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber with a big and firm off-white head. Hoppy aroma of citrus and tropical fruit with malty notes of bread and biscuit. Dry and very bitter flavour dominated by fruity hops. The bitterness is somewhat sharp and harsh. The papaya doesn’t appear to make a difference
