3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 650ml bottle on 4/3/2015. Pours a acloudy orange golden with a medium white head. The nose features lots of caramel and honey. Take a sip and it’s quite malt forward - more caramel and toffee, with lots of sweet fruit and honey evident, along with a hint of booze. The hops reveal themselves at the back, with a firm, lingering bitterness providing the balance. Full bodied with soft carbonation. This is a bit of a curious double - not overly hoppy and quite malty, and very much on the sweet side for the style. It almost has a bit of barley wine character to it. Very enjoyable but not quite top flight.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours copper orange with a two finger off white head with excellent retention and lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, sweet malts, caramel, grassy hops,and some light bready malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with the additon of some light tropical fruits, and a little booze in the finish. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a pretty bitter, slighty boozy, slightly dry, long, lingering finish. Overall, a pretty nice DIPA that has a just a tad too must noticeable booze for a 8.5 abv.

Draft pour red-brown with white head. Taste of slight citrus with strong grapefruit aftertaste. This was joined by slight pine and other. Strong IPA. Perhaps not a several drink IPA, but good to start off!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml can from Beer Up. Dark orange, slightly hazy with a nice, creamy and persistent yellow-ish head. On the nose toffee/burnt caramel, a hint of alchool, some darker type of berries, citrus peel, slightly nutty/toasted malts, some soapy and leafy hops notes. Pleasent bitterness upfront, pretty balanced and not over the top. Again lots of toffee/caramel presence, fairly big warming sensation, quite slick and sticky sweetness in the back, slightly coating the lips. Excellent drinkability for the ABV. Average carbonation, medium to full body, slightly oily texture. Far from being my favourite DIPA, but it’s certainly an above average example of the style.
