Pours a finger of head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is grapefruit and lemon. Nice.
The taste has a strong dry bitterness, there’s supporting malt that keeps it balanced.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
A bold bitter IPA. Good.

It poured a clear orange color with a white head. The aroma was of pine, tropical fruit, hops, grapefruit and malts. The taste was of sugar, with a hoppy, medium bitter finish. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is mild pine, citrus peels and a little sweet. The taste is not that hoppy, and that may have to do with the age? But still sweet from lychees, peaches, orange and a very slight bitterness. I would really like to try this one fresh, as I was not super impressed by this one, but it is still a very nice DIPA. If I get my hands on a fresh specimen, I will return with a re-review.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Cloudy, dark orange. Thin, bubbly, lasting, off white head, that has a glossy top coat. Heavy, pithy orange, and pink grapefruit. Caramel. Fruit salad sweets. There’s a phenolic edge on this, too, although I don’t mind it. There’s enough sweet fruit to balance it. Taste is dry, and heavy bitter. Some sweetness bubbling around. Full, boozy, chewy palate. Finish is long, thick, chewy bitter. Sandy dry close. Certainly not lacking oomph.
