4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at The Daily Pint. Hazy amber-orange with a slight haze, two finger off-white head with great retention and very nice lace. Big citrus and floral hop aroma with tangerine, grapefruit, caramel, and pine. Taste is similar with a big floral, perfumy, complex hop profile accompanied by tangerine, resiny pine, orange zest, caramel, white pepper, grapefruit, and grass. Medium body, oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation and a wonderfully balanced, slightly mouth-puckering, bitter sweet finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange-tan, frog’s egg ivory head. Nice west coast hop, AIPA aroma with fruit and sugars. Citrus pith, pineapple, malty, not hyper bitter but a lot of hop complexity. Lightly sweet, mouthy. Bitterness builds with a doughy pineapple and sprucey aftertaste. Pretty tasty. On tap, Momos.

Poured from a coupla bombers into the pint glass, great looking thick orange foamy glass of beer. Nice and hoppy, nice and strong, with above average bitter. I appreciate all 7 of the hops.

650ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Tiny off-white head. Hazy dark orange head. Aroma is really piney, backed with a nice malt sweetness. Some caramel and grapefruit aroma as well. Mostly sweet on the tongue, with a great dry bitter finish. Extremely well balanced.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Une très bonne ipa avec 7 différents houblon. Évidemment l’amertume est au rendez-vous, mais son côté floral vient adoucir ce 90 ibu. C’est carrément une main de fer dans un gant de velours. À savourer encore et encore!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle from Drinks of the World at Zurich HB. Grassy hoppy nose. Pours a cloudy amber with a foam that sticks to the glass. Taste is dominated by bitterness and hops, but this hops combination works on its own without a malty backbone.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy light amber wee ringed head. Nose is crisp, sweet, briskly hoppy and brusque cheesy orange. Initial taste creamy, brassy hop. Lemon and almost a bit minty citrus. Grassy, lemon and then a big marmalade rich bitterness. Firm carbonation, lean malt for an American DIPA - not quite oversweet malt. Finishes smoothly tart orange, linger even more strewn marmalade mintiness. Passed the ABV well all told but more rich than juicy.
