Pours darker, slight amber in the colour I guess. Aroma displays some earth and herbal hops. This is not your sweet tropical IPA but more like earthy and harsh. Balance is still well developed, so when drinking it, you get a bit of biscuits, malt dust and yes, still some hop fruitiness. Drinks surprisingly easy, definitely feels lower abc than it actually has. Great double IPA, totally satisfying.

wow - quite a lot in there. Grapefruit quite clear on the nose. And then in the taste too against a sweet caramel malt - citrus, some pine and herbal notes. ABV well hidden alright. Dangerous, this one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Thick caramel nose, with big citrus (grapefruit) and pine. Hazy, near cloudy, gold leafy. Caramel, resiny hop (with a bit of burn), some spiciness, and long bitter tracks. Medium-heavy body, with rich and rough hop texture. Hides the alc. very well. Hop-heavy mixed up blend, but tasty and malty as well.

Draft pour pint athe Scuttlebutt. Pours an orange copper color with a lasting fizz head. Grain forward aroma. I actually enjoy this much more after it sat and wares up a bit. Good flavors, really came out this way. Some orange, and a balanced grains and hop finish. Pretty good.
