4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught @ Papago. Delivers a clear dark amber body with reddish highlights, very small head and not much sticking lace. Sweet nose with a rush of hoppy goodness, notes of pineapple, grapefruit rind and some piney/woody undertones. Medium/light heavy body. Bitter start, smooth bready malt middle, not overbearing with caramel flavors, and finishes with a lingering mild spiced hop finish, which lasts and lasts. Very Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy orange body with a medium off-white head. Steady carbonation. Patchy lacing. Aroma of orange, straw, pine and caramel. Flavour of pine, grapefruit, candy and menthol. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Light fizz. Uncompromisingly bitter and hoppy, which helps to disguise the 10% ABV, but slightly hinders its swiggability. I love a high IBU Imperial IPA.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wonderful pine/citrus rind hop and honey malt sweetness aroma. An easy 10. Dark hazy orange color with a stark white head of foam. Tastes sweet in the background with a strong hop presence all throughout. The hops are more of the citrus variety but with an earthy quality added in. Very drinkable for 10% ABV. The palate is very full and silky for the style. This was excellent. Truly a 100 rated beer that lives up to it’s hype. Buy this right now if you can get it.

65cl bottle. Hazy orangish golden colour with a generous off-white head. Pine, caramel, spices, citrus and other fruits in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is medium bitter with caramel and spice notes up front, followed by a bitter kick and finishes with a long, dry and bitter piny flavour. Overall, a fantastic beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Winter 2015 version, 10.5% abv. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange on tap with fluffy off-white head that dissipates slowly to leave good lace. Aroma of big resinous citrus and fresh cut grass from the hops. Taste has more of a balance with the malt, but still huge hop presence. Booze is well hidden, but it sneaks up on you the more you drink. Really well done double IPA.
