BOTTLE. 2013 batch. No head & little carbonation. Bright orange in colour with a very sweet light floral nose. Got orange, honey & a bitter sweet hoppy flavour. Sneaky easy for a beer at 10.4%
Sourced from Cellarbrations Capel

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. DIPA. Sierra Nevada. Let’s get ready to muuuumble! (After too much drinking.)
A: Orange with copper tones. Fluffy off-white head.
N: Black peppercorn, pineapple and orange syrup. Biscuit and rye bread. Ample spruce and earth from the hops. Fall leaves and grasses.
T: Quite bitter, with a crackery base to prop up the hops. Wouldn’t put this one in front of a hop novice, for sure.
M: Big booze presence throughout. Heavy, resinous body. Very dry at the end.
O: The intense amount of booze is about the only reason to dislike this. (And I am knocking off points because the alcohol laces itself through this beer like a snake in an ivy ladder.) However, for serious hopheads, this will more than appease their thirst.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden amber with copious lacing white head. Strong aromas of grapefruit and mango with a hint of pine. Big bold flavors of grapefruit and pine with some slight orange citrus. Some sweetness from the alcohol also comes through. Very full bodied mouthfeel and quite resinous.

Really great IPA. If you like IPAs, this is a must try! I am not going to add a bunch of fluffy language like a lot of these reviews have (no idea what half of it means anyway and I don’t care), it’s beer and a good one!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask gravity at 2014 GBBF. Amber colour with a loose off white head. Aroma is big c hop, slight floral and piney with orange peel. Flavour is also big and in your face, grapefruit pine and orange tempered by rounded caramel malts. Warming alcohol in the finish. Big and fairly chewy palate. Very big and well made DIPA.
