4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - A huge moundy off-white head on top of a hazy amber brass body. Thick 3D lacing.
S - Wow! Intensely grassy hops bursting with citrus grapefruit and lemon oil. Lots of pine, fresh herbal earthiness. Hints of candy sweet malt lay in the background. The best smelling DIIPA Iíve ever smelled.
T - Assertive hops rush the palate. Fresh pine needles, grapefruit rind, lemon pith, fresh cut grass, fresh cut mint leaves. Caramel malt bleeds through the bouquet of hops. Aftertaste is mouth coating grapefruit.
M - Moderate carbonation, medium bodied that finishes crisp and dry.
This is a citrus hopfest. Although itís not as harsh or bitter than I thought it would be. Itís actually very tasty. The nose is glorious! The hop profile is very flavorful and the malt does itís job. Too bad itís so expensive.

Fresh from the tap at Gesundbrewing in the Castle Pub. Golden-yellow in the glass with stable white head. Genial !!! The whole spectrum, what the hopd can give. Long bitterness in the mouth (100+ IBUs!!!). A so called beer for the fame of the hops. Itís real !!!

clear golden colour, huge, creamy yellowish off-white head; aroma of overripe grapefruit, tangerine, maybe mango, too, pine resin, and some herbal notes; taste is the same with biscuits, syrupy notes and some peppery spiciness; perfect balance of hops and malts! I love it!

Keg at Bitter Phew. Look, itís good, but not worth wetting your kecks over. Kind of like the NZ Sauvignon Blanc trend, the mega hoppy IPA thing will probably fade as the hipsters grow up. Hazy orange, off white head. Big citrus hoppy aroma with slight flowery edge prepares you for..... surprise surprise.... a big hoppy hit that hangs around for ages in a long bitter bitter finish. Kecks remain thankfully bone dry
