3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear deep golden with a white head. Sweet fruity nose, a spicy hoppiness - a whiff of Sorachi Ace? Medium body, sweet caramellish malts and a light bitterness. A decent drinker, but certainly not a Double IPA! 040213

Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Light amber in colour with low, very low, head, Nose of spices, mild hops. Taste of coriander, pink pepper, parsley, low malt, light hops and light soy sauce. Unfortunately the finish is too bitter (and the bottle too small).

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. Wonderful aroma of citrus, hops and herbs. Pours in quite orange with no head. Tasty is sweetish and hoppy. Aftertaste is stupidly bitter but you have to deal with it. A superb beer with a tough end. Great.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours golden orange into the glass, with a flat, fine head. It smells very delicious like american hops, very fruity with a lot of citrus. Starts very harmonious hoppy, much less bitter than expected for a IIPA. All flavors are in perfect harmony. The middle part has a lot of citrus, coupled with some pine woods and floral aroma hops. Goes into a very mildly hoppy and fruity finish with tropical fruits!

Renk bronz, bardakta gazli ama kopuk malesef zayif. Koku tipik Ipa, serbetciotu baskin ama bir double ipadan beklendigi kadar degil.. Icim oldukca hafif, dengeli ama cok vurucu olmayan bir DIPA. Bu turun cok iyilerini denedigim icin notu biraz dusuk kaldi.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. BB 1/13. From bierzwerg.de.
Deep ambery golden colour with small white head.
Floral and perfumy hoppy bitterness and sweetish malt in aroma.
Flavour is hoppy but it’s like somehow diluted. Fruits and alcohol. It’s like punch fermented canned peaches. Well, it’s not that bad. It’s drinkable and rather easy but therefore it’s not that interesting nor rewarding. But the palate is rich.

A nice amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is nothing but hops citrus/floral you get it all. Flavor get ready for a mouth full of hops.
