3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,355l bottle at home. some number that says 815 which I would assume means bottling. smells of caramel, pines, bit sweetish, light grass and herbs, flowery,light nuts. good smell bit on the sweet side. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes sweet at first, then rather bitter, citric notes, herbs, light pines, candy notes, some stale hops. finishes rather light with notes with medium bitterness and citric notes, herbs and light pines. okish, taste not too great, maybe also an issue of freshness, bit watery / stale taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml bottle @ Timo A.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Cardboard and vegetables on the aroma, herbal, jelly beans, sweet fruits and pine, hops and orange. Sweet flavor with orange and pineapple, some mild gooseberry notes, alcohol is quite well hidden, caramel malts and some resin. The aroma feels a bit off at first, gets better towards the end. Something is a bit off here though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear orange color with off-white head. Aroma is hoppy with earthy and sweet orange notes. There is also some sweet malt and stale grains note. Taste starts somehow sweet and fruity but gets quickly bitter and dusty. Bitterness is quite harsh with lots of grapefruit pith. Body is medium-light with medium carbonation. Overall it’s a very classic, old school type DIPA. It has the harsh bitterness and earthy hops you expect from a classic example of the style.

25th January 2015
Light haze on this gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is smooth and has decent fine carbonation. Decent malt base, a light creamy sweetness. Hops start with a spicy resin followed by marmalade and grapefruit. Bitterish citric peel before a spicy finish and linger. Nicely done, very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at Leighton’s, as ’Scuttlebutt Hoptopia’. Hazy orange, opaque, lightly sparkling, decent foamy off-white head, full lacing. Aroma is dried flowers, mint, orange, a little soap. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is pine-forward, some toffee, floral and resinous with a dry finish. Not worthy of the import premium but it’s a decent enough DIPA overall.
