Bottled 12/06/14. An amber coloured beer with an off-white puddle of head. Good stuff. Lovely hops and great yeasty notes. A long full body and good boozy flavours. Tasty stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Post Office Vaults, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney hops, sweat socks, and some oxidation - why does this have to be an old IIPA. Flavour brings out piney hops, some sweat socks, and a dry biscuity malt backing. A little old, but still quite flavourful and balanced. Good IIPA.

Bottle sample at my 5555th rating tasting at Sar HaMashkaot Ramat Gan. Thanks Dagan. Rating #5555. Slightly hazy golden with an off-white head. Soapy and fruity aroma. Flavor has some malt sweetness, fruitiness, yeast, caramel, a bit of honey and a bitter finish, a bit herbal. Medium-bodied. Not a DIPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange colour with thin and quickly receding head. Aroma has some floral hop and some bitter citrus peel. Flavour is syrupy sweet with a floral hop bitterness. Carbonation is low. This beer is ok but lacks intensity.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy golden/amber body with a thick, lasting, off-white foamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with grainy and apple hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It carries brown sugar, woody, herbal, and fruity notes. Ends with a long, strong, moderately warming, bittersweet finish. Not bad, although this is not really an Imperial IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, thnx to Benzai. Pours a hazy golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma has light grapefruits and faint caramel. Nice but subtle. Flavor is medium bitter, very fruity and has a sweeter background. Aftertaste is long and light bitter again loads of fruits. Nice DIPA, but not too impressive.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A-typical double ipa, more like a double spicy saison. Very herbal and malty body, with some american sharp fruity hops, but also a french herbal hop. Enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, amber colour with small, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Hoppy aroma splits in a fruity side, delivering notes of gooseberry and other berries, and an herbal, earthy moiety, malty basis has a toffee touch. Taste is moderately sweet malty with hints of honey, inhibited, clotted hoppiness, floral notes, a supposed hoppy biting in rudimentary condition turns instantaneously in actual alcoholic burning. A rather asthmatic inspiration.
