Pours copper colored with lovely creamy white head. Nose is sweetish hoppy-fruity with some pine wood. Starts hoppy fruity, massively bitter and dry. Middle part has lots of citrussy hops with a very bitter hop profile. The background shows some pine woods and some dark fruits. Goea into a very hoppy, bitter and dry finish with lots of pine wood.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy amber color, average sized white head. Some dead yeast floating around. Aroma is dominantly malty, without any real hop character. Taste is something like washed out hops, lots of maltiness, overripe fruits and metal. Medium body, soft carbonation. Well, its obviously in bad shape and thats not the first time with this brewer.

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.
