2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
hot nose with a heavy alcohol aroma, light pine notes, not citrus. Pours a dark ruby amber with a thick off white head. Minimal lacing. The first sip is not what I expected. No discerning profile but a strong alcohol presence, heavy caramel malts, moderate bitterness. Off!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber body with large lasting tan head. Aroma is malts, caramel some hints of fruits and pines. Taste is malts with some honey and caramel. Aftertaste is malty sweetness nicely balanced by some hops bitterness. Nice one but it has more of a barly wine.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear amber. Two finger off white head, some lacing and retention. Aroma of caramel and faint whiskey. Taste is really earthy bitter and malty sweet, a little too sweet for the style. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, sticky mouth feel. Finishes bittersweet. Tasting notes of Belgian sugar, caramel, dates, pine resin, alcohol. This drinks almost like a barley wine that’s over hopped. Not bad beer just another curve ball from Shipyard.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark orange to copper colour, medium carbonation, thin head which gone in 10-15 sec. Aroma of nothing specific, presence of alcohol tough and unpleasent. Flavor for an DIPA is very bad. Alcohol, alcohol an nothing else.
Afteertaste is bitter but harsh bitter. Not a good stuff I’m afraid.
