4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2015 Bottle. Amber Body with white head. Aroma is fruity with some pines, I was expecting a little bit stronger aroma but still very good. Taste was nearly perfect fruity and malty with the alcohol very well hidden. Aftertaste is fruity bitter balanced by some malts. Perfect. Great brew.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Enjoy By 12/26/14, had about three weeks before. Pours a golden orange with soapy, off white head. Lively carbonation. Aroma is just straight up grapefruit juice. Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. Maybe a little underripe pineapple, sweet malt. Taste follows nose, grapefruity, just a little bit of bitterness, not terribly complex. There’s so much malt in here, the bitterness hardly bothers you. Decently carbonated, a medium mouthfeel. For a widely available big IPA, this is pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber, large head.
Massively hoppy aroma, big pine, resinous, spicy and herbal notes along with some petrol-like new-world hops. Some light clean malt underneath.
Clean flavours too, with a focus on piny, resinous and more petrol-like hop notes. Some slightly solvent-like booze notes.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650 ml bottle 02/14/15, shared by Sebilinz. Thanks! Was looking for this for a long time, so the prefect beer for my rating #500!
Deep amber, clear body, with a medium, creamy, white head.
Lovely aroma of crisp citric, floral hops, with a lot of stone fruits, like peach, berries, some tropical fruits.
Taste follows this, also amazing, with a nice, balancing biscuit malt backbone.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes bitter, a bit dry, zesty, fruity, a bit malty.
As delicious as I was hoping for! Very smooth, perfectly balanced and quite easy for this ABV. The hops are just amazing! Not my absolute favourite DIPA I’ve had, but one of the best for sure.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2015 This is the 2.14.15 batch. Golden pour with a fluffy white head.Aroma is familiar with hops, citrus, syrup. It smells like it’s going to feel sticky. A slight punch up front, smooth body, sweet middle. The bite comes at the finish. Hops and alcohol. A slight lingering heat. Wet finish.
Also had the 4.20.15 batch. Just as nice.
