4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Date tasted: July 25, 2013 ... Glassware: La Fin du Monde snifter... Occasion: enjoying an evening of Strat, music and good beer....Appearance: slightly hazy, lightly golden body with cascading effervescence; head is snow white, snow deep and beautifully laced; quite an attractive ale out the box... Aroma: the bottle boasts four separate hops varieties--and the nostril is bombarded by harsh pine cone and soft department store perfume counter, almost lilac and lavender; secondary citrus and grapefruit sneak in... Palate: as expected, a full-bodied, full-on attack at the teeth with a bit of warmth at the end; second and third sips ease the intensity, but the warmth remains...Taste: as promised, a near-mad balance of hops and malts, with the bitterness being more palpable yet not as put-offish as some maltreated double IPAs...Overall: After a rabid camp discussion on the virtues of the double IPA, I made this part of a build-a-six and am not disappointed with the selection...not mentioned among the thirty or so we pleasantly recalled, this beer gets the taste buds titillated while bringing enough disguised alcohol to only need a few for the weeknight...recommended and part of the double IPA discussion for doing much well...

Pours clear golden. Vanishing white head. Slight citrus grass aroma. Taste is indistinct bitter followed by sweet malt. Too sweet for my tongue.

Golden color with white head. Biscuity malt aroma with grapefruit. Flavor starts out caramel malt with citrus and pine finish. Slight bitterness that doesn’t linger.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Single from total wine. Unfortunately no bottle date so this one seems a little old based on the hop profile. A sticky full bodied caramel malt bomb though if that’s your style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml, flaske, 8,2 % ABV, købt i Barley Wine i CPH City, 1. august 2014.
Orange/gylden dIPA med lille flygtig offwhite-farvet skumtop, som svinder til kant og overflade. Skummet så "syret underligt" ud med større bobler midt i det tættere skum.
Aromaen er grapefrugt, citrus, noget hø.
Mild og sødlig smag af bitterhumle, men ikke kraftig, som bryggeriet også selv beskriver i deres optakt. Medium sødme, let til medium bitterhed og intet surt i smagen.
I munden perler kuldioxiden let qua et veltilpasset indhold af samme og øllet føles let. Kroppen har medium fylde og er aldrig tung.
Eftersmagen er bitter, men ikke skarp afsluttende. Medium af længde.
Én af de mildere dIPA’er, jeg har smagt so far.

I got this on discount because it was bottled in January, I have to say, it has held up relatively well, I bet in April this would have been even better, but still a solid offering, light, smooth, hoppy, bitter, and citrus/floral sum this up....give it a try
