4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was an 11.2 fl oz bottle dated best before 7th August 2016 on the bottle cap and poured into a snifter glass. It poured a hazy golden orange colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly leaving nice spotty lacing. Right from the pour you get a strong tropical fruit aroma. Mainly mango and pineapple followed by some citrus grapefruit, zest and pine. I thought the smells were amazing and raring to burst out at me. Tastes of citrus hop bitterness up front with grapefruit and mandarin orange followed by some light tropical fruit… maybe pineapple and peach, but still the bitterness pushes through. There’s also a strong malt caramel background and slight sweetness from this, but it gets covered by the bitterness quickly and the lasting aftertaste is bitter with a small hint of tropical fruit. It is medium bodied with light carbonation and has a dry finish. Overall, this was a very nice DIPA. The strong aromas set a high standard to begin with. I find most DIPAs have too much malt caramel sweetness in its taste for me, but in this case I absolutely loved the hop bitterness shining through. The slight fruitiness also helped here. Its on the expensive side, but I will definitely consider buying this again.

Hervorragend in seiner Art mit einem ordentlich Bumms an Hopfen und Zitrusmomenten. Dazu moderate Bitterkeit, ordentliche Frische und süffig ist es auch.

33 cl bottle. Pours hazy amber. Quite a malty aroma for an IIPA., but I like it. Sorry, I can’t provide a more detailed rating as I’m watching #ESC in Sweden... But yep, I like it.

At a tasting, small bubbly head, light hazy orange color, fruity citrusy aroma with just a soapy hint. herbal flavor with a bready backbone, hint of rose petals and pine in the back, medium herbal bitterness, light mellow sweetness, suprisingly light. Really nice and enjoyable.

A wonder of cloudy ambergolden waterfalls pouring down my glass. Aroma of rapeseed honey and flowers. A complex full body filled with hops, hops, hops and sweetness. Honey and a hint of orange zest.
Might be the best one ever.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark yelow. Sadly it’s about one year old and the rating isn’t very accurate. Hoppy, fruity, sweet aroma. Full body and creamy mouthfeel with notes of hops, citrus, sweet malt, but not so strong.
