4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is my first sampling from this brand. Their IPA hits the mark. A real heavy aroma and the beer delivers - start to finish. The alcohol content is apparent and not well hid. But it’s a real nice american IPA

Nose is caramel malt, bitter orange, straw, hop ping, light grapefruit.
Taste comprises orange pith, grapefruit, straw, bread dough, lemon drizzle, caramel malt.

Old Skool DIPA, remember thinking this was great back in the day, now it’s low end for the style in my book.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap (Tommyknocker, Helsinki)
Very sweet malty aroma, caramelly, some pleasant US hops. Pale orange, tight head. Buttery, bready, touch nutty, zesty hops. Nice bitter bite. Palate full and sweet, crisply carbonated stops it from being too sticky. Finish zesty, a metallic bite, rather nice for what it is, which is a little bit silly.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Tanakaya. Pineapple nose with citrus, caramel and pine in the background. Lots of malt on the palate, fairly heavy with a big bitter punch. Feels heavy and filling with some grapefruit mid-palate. Lots of bitterness. Too bitter and too much malt in 2016, but good old school Double IPA.
