camoes (107) - PORTUGAL - SEP 2, 2014
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 14C). AROMA: intense floral, piny, resinous aroma. faint sweet malt background with some fruity notes. some alcohol notes but not of hot character. APPEARANCE: dark Orange color and very hazy. ivory thin moussy head with low retention. TASTE: balanced sweet malt profile with high bitterness that lingers into a dry finish. hop flavours are reminiscent of floral and pine. some fruitiness is present (grapes, tropical fruits). PALATE: smooth medium-low body with medium-low carbonation. smooth alcohol warming. OVERALL: a nicely done and balanced imperial IPA with a good hop bouquet (aromas and flavours).

sergiviciana (1) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 27, 2014 does not count
Densa y turbia. 9% de delicioso amargor. Le falta aroma, pero compensa el sabor. Matiz de vainilla que, con el alcohol, matiza los lúpulos.
