From keg at the Euston Tap on 9 September 2014. Big ballsy double IPA with lashing of grapefruity hops throughout. Not at all sticky as DIPAs can sometimes be (for my palate anyway). Not too much honey in evidence, thankfully from my perspective. I have more extensive notes somewhere but that will have to do for now.

Imperial ipa che spacca letteralmente i culi: incredibilmente luppolata ma morbida sul palato, accompagna con una cascata di note fruttate una base maltata e caramellata che si confonde come una nebbia dolce e persistente. Ottima!!!

HogTownHarry (6108) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
On draught at The Earl of Essex. Hazy gold, average white frothy head. Aroma of alcohol, sweet malt, tropical fruit, pineapple - lovely. Taste follows, more attenuated than the aroma suggested - bitter, a bit boozy, floral/resiny - good stuff. Average body, astringent, medium-bitter finish, nice linger with dry acidity - terrific not over-the-top DIPA. Siren do good work.

Slightly murky amber colour with thin white head. Pink grapefruit, lemon and a bit of blue cheese in the nose. Bitter citrus and floral notes in the flavour with a rich palate. Overall quite smooth and tasty.

On tap in BeerCab. Color cloudy orange. Medium head. Herbal hops in aroma. High bitterness. Lemon but also honey, so ballanced. High body.

jfb (3901) - Freising, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2014
(keg) opalescent golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of earth, herbal hops and nettles, quite resinous, with a hint of treebark, some caramel and grape juice. flavour is more herbal hops and resin, with some more light caramel, apple juice, nettles and gooseberries. medium- to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

daje (2450) - NORWAY - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy orange body with a low, lasting white head. Aroma of pine, mango, grapefruit, lightly sweetened, taste is medium sweet, honey is noticable, with a clean hoppy taste of tropical juice, pretty good hidden alcohol, feels like a "single" IPA. Citrusy lasting finish. A well crafted DIPA.

I wasn’t impressed by this one as when I was drinking it all I could taste was the goats cheese that I had just eaten. For that taste to prevade for the entire bottle is rather strange. My husband liked it though. pale, some carbonation, lacing and head. Its very easy to drink but the flavour for me was rather disconcerting. bottle at bottle shop.

Benzai (8371) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2014
Keg at the Cock Tavern. Clear golden color, small white head. Don’t get a lot of aroma. Taste malts, hops, floral, sweet fruits, bitter. Firm carbonation, medium body. Hmm not really balanced imo.

On tap at the Cock Tavern, Hackney. Gold pour with a white head. Peach and pineapple aroma. Rich booze fuelled nose. Flavours of pineapple and mango. Long alcohol burn. Quite nice.
