3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Delightful. Butterscotch and spicy pine hop aroma. Pour is hazy amber with thin white head. Flavor is mainly malt, some grapefruitand a long pine finish. It does an excellent job concealing the 8% and.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear deep golden color with a fine white head. Powerful aroma with a bit to much toffee and a bit overripe fruity. Also pine and grapefruit hoppy. Full body and a bit unbalanced sweetness. Malty, toffee, rich fruity, a bit harse grapefruit hoppy and pine in the flavor. Not my type of double ipa.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
65cl bottle at Smelteverket, Oslo. Pours clear amber with a modest head. Rather hoppy aroma with pine, caramel, fruity notes and hints of citrus and herbs. Sweet hoppy juice with and a decent bitterness. Fairly balanced, but not so fresh, but still quite tasty.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy, golden-yellow, with thick, mid-sized head. Sweet, fruity aroma--some citrus, some tropical fruit. Flavor is very sweet--too much malt sweetness for my palate--with fruit flavors and just a touch of hop bite (wish there was more, to be honest). I’m much more a fan of the drier, more hop-forward IPAs, which this is not.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the Rogue Taproom, Portland, OR.
Clear golden colour with a tiny off-white head.
Sweet fruity and piney hops, moderate bitterness, hoppy freshness and some maltiness in the aroma. Tempting.
The flavour is sweet hops, pine, mild resin, strong bitterness and strong sweet maltiness. Strong one. Tasty one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fruity and floral but not as complex as a secret blend of seven hops would suggest. Finish is quite bitter.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Een zeer prettige IPA, 7 hopsoorten. Dat schept verwachtingen. En die worden waargemaakt. Een hoppige, ietwat zoetige geur (gedroogd fruit?). De smaak is complex: hoppig, bloemig, grassig, grapefruit, mango, noten, gedroogd fruit. De nasmaak is heerlijk bitterzoet. Zo wil ik ze vaker!

Muddy brown color with moderate foam layer. Flowery fresh smell with bitter notes. Mild hoppy bitter, with citrus and slight sweetness (and possibly nuts?). Dry, little tart and bitter aftertaste.
