Su alta graduación tira para atrás, pero su intenso olor a papaya te atrae hasta probarla. Para tomar sin prisa.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL bottle, courtesy of fiulijn (thanks a lot, Alex), pours a murky opaque orange with a small beige head. Nose brings out lots of papaya, yeast, resinous hops, and a big caramel malt backbone. Flavour is bursting with tropical fruity goodness, with loads of papaya, followed by bold resinous hops, and a nice caramel malt backbone. Exceedingly well-balanced, bold and robust. Finishes malty and fruity. Wonderful stuff.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Legacy. Rather murky peachy tan colour. Peachy-yeasty aroma is fairly strong. Rich strong BW-like beer with yeast character, and touch of papaya brightness but not all that much.

Terrific double IPA. Sweet malts, ample hops, fruits, lots of it, fresh citrus and really ample alcohol. Exiting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 9.2%. Fruity aroma, piney hops, but not too distinct. Cloudy sort of orange colour. Big stable off-white head. The flavour is sweetish at first with a good, distinct bitterness. Has a little citrus fruit, but not refreshing as such. Piney and grapefruity hop flavour. A good beer, but I think it could have been just as good with less alcohol.

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.
