Dark blond with thin lacy head. Aroma has sugary tropical fruits and earthy, piney hops. Quite thick and furry feeling. A bit over the top.

So much hops. It smells and tastes ljke sweet floral hops. Chewy body. This injects hops into your mouth violently. Awesome brew. Like.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
650cl bottle shared in a Four Hands shaker. Pours orangey amber with a voluminous off white frothy head which last throughout the drink. Aroma is massive hops - all types, grapefruit, resin, pine everything associated with an IIPA and more. Taste is more of the same - massively juicy hops with the malt very much cowering into the background. A truly massive and chewy IPA that stands alone at the top of IIPAs I have tried thus far. Can’t see this one being beaten anytime soon.

Bottle at home. Nicely cloudy golden colour, big creamy white head. (Barley wine-)Sweet malted, big on fruity, floral and piny hop tones with orange peel getting through most. Quite a strong bitterness, but not overpowering. Sweet, fruity aftertaste. Big body, low carbonation.
