3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Very perfumy hop aroma. Rich body, biscuity and caramellish sweet but totally dominated by these perfumy hops - perfumy rather than citrusy. Warming alcohol finish. 250113

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fairly cloudy bright gold in the glass with a big fluffy white head. Liquid looks fairly still and settled. Floral, perfumy notes in the aroma, with some grapefuit, melon, mango and tangy american hops. All the notes from the aroma are in the flavour with those summer fruits to the fore - some peach notes in there too. The hops give a really nice backbone for all that sweetness to rest. Carbonation is quite soft, mouthfeel is medium bodied and quite slick. Finish as long as a summers day, with maltiness forward. Really nice.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light misty, huge white frothy head. Lots of classic hops, straightforward but nice full feel. Taste is rich, good amounts of classic hops and a ending surprising sweetness to smooth things out. Surprising and with an original English approach. Excellent. (75cl bottle from Colin, thanks!)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from McGee. Hazy, gold-orange pour with a vigorous, fine-bubbled white head. Nose is slightly boozy and funky with a hint of malty sweetness. Medium body and intense, fine carbonation. Ethanol bitterness predominates, but some citrus hops and caramel are present. Finish is a bit sweet, which I didn’t expect. Too hot for me, not enough hop aroma.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle poured a magnificent apricot with golden hues, large fluffy white head, and excellent lacing. Aroma of big citrus and floral hops, lemon zest, and honey. Taste is an explosion of caramel malt and citrus with a hint of pepper and bitterness. Enjoyable crisp finish with citrus flavors lingering. Smoothest DIPA I have ever had with ABV completely unnoticeable. Well done.
