3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the parentals with my dad. Pour is hazy orange with a big white head and great lacing. Grapefruity, peachy, orange peel, doughy, somewhat earthy, a bit boozy, and mango in the aroma. Taste is earthy fruit skin, apricot, pineapple, somewhat grassy, really boozy, grapefruit, and biscuit with a big alcoholic burn on the backend. Medium-to-thin mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Much too alcoholic and unbalanced, yet still manages to be palatable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
660 ml bottle. Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma has some full malt sweetness with honey-like floral hops. Aromas are not too intensive - but the beer itself is also not the freshest, was bottled in March 2012. First sip creates an explosion in my mouth. All these 15 hop varieties that have been used when making this beer are still there and doing a great work. Taste has resins, oily mouthfeel, some grapefruit seed and peel bitterness, everything coming together in a long, bitter and resiny pine aftertaste. Some hints of that 10% abv are also coming through, this is not a session drink. Overall, a great double IPA, not too heavy malt base that has been finely hopped.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Botella de 65 cl en el lupulo. Noviembre de 2012 y un par de veces. Alucinante birra. Sabor amargo muy pronunciado y durante un buen rato. Principio hervaceo, floral es bastante densa y algo dulce acabando con amargo. Interesante sería compararla con la aniversary a la vez. Creo me quedaría con está última por un pelin más solamente. Hay que repetirla de nuevo

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice hazy golden ale with a solid two fingers of light yellow foam. Nose is pungent, with pine and resin and some hits of pineapple and grapefruit. The malt doesn’t really rear it’s head here, which is fine. Bitter and fruity with a good hit of grapefruit rind, some pine needle, some weed resin and a bit o tea. the malts are here, but not sweet and not overkill. There is certainly the taste of alcohol, but it seems to do the hops some good here. The beer is medium bodied and over carbed with a nice off dry finish. Nice beer.
