Golden body with a light white lace, aroma is caramel malts and cheesy hops... this might be an old bottle... flavor is big sweet malt, some hot alcohol, pungent hop bitters that seem a bit stale, possibly aged a little too long, cheesy centennial warrior juice, heavy body

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful orange with a low head. Aroma of peach, grape and caramel. The flavour is fruity with notes of mango, orange, lemon a bit of salt and way too much alcohol. Nice palate though, with a full body, oily texture and a long bitter finish.

Bottled 660 ml at Beer Hunters
Hazy orange color, small white head. Hoppy, glueish aroma, some tangerine and alcohol. Glueish, a bit yeasty hoppy. Some fruityness. Too much solvent and alcohol, bad price/quality-ratio.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle. Medium off-white head atop hazy apple juice body. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange/grapefruit, some melon, light alcohol. taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some orange, resin, alcohol. Medium-full body, some resin. Starts decent, but ultimately the booziness, which becomes more noticeable as it warms, detracts.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy light amber color; the bottle has been shaken a bit. Fruity aroma, with very mature apples, sweaty and cheesy hops. Strong body, very strong flavor, of malt and toffee, with good sweetness level; the malt and hop combination produce a nutty touch too; the hop brings in the fruity side (mainly bitter oranges); more fruity and less resiny than many from the same brewery. More hop oils in the final. Powerful and excellent as often, from Port.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Cloudy golden color with a nice white foam.
S: Tons of hops, mostly citrus, but a decent pine aroma as well. It also has very sweet sugar notes and noticeable alcohol.
T: This is a lot more sweet than I would have expected. Not in the malty way that, say, Maharaja is sweet, but like candi sugar. The citrus hops are present with some mild pine. The alcohol is very present; this is a hot DIPA.
M: Very sticky and low carbonation.
D: This is a very boozy beer, and I was not quite expecting the sweetness either. It’s a decent beer, but definitely one you’ve got to watch yourself with.
