3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Hop Leaf at home. Hazy translucent musty orange straw yellow pour. Aroma is mango and pineapple hops with some plasticky notes. A bit resiny too. Taste is big hops - pine and some citrus and tropical fruit. Bitter finish, some lasting booziness. Normal - slightly thicker than usual - palate. Solid DIPA but not great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 Resiny and piney, not that much tropical fruit. Some caramel, and very well balanced, but no dank fruitiness. Quite refreshing and alcohol is well very hidden.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2013 Frisk härlig sommaräng i doften. Lovar gott. Rejäl beska å viss sötma som är typisk för bryggeriet. Bra dubbel IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark cloudy orange brew, reminds me of a german hefeweissen.
Great aroma, fresh with hops, citrus and subliminal hints of seaweed?
Taste is slightly sweet and, of course, bitter and citric due to the heavy citra/centennial hopping. The high abv is not clear, more like 6-7%. This is a very fine IPA indeed.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light orange/straw coloured. Cloudy but bright, thick sudsy white head and lacing. Smell is lots of peach, banana, tangerine, orange creamsicle, musty hop, hay/plastic. Tastes of very bitter resinous hop, hay, lightly spiced malt. Body is crisp but creamy, fine carbonation. Great aroma and body but taste is a bit more boring.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Equally herbaceous and fruity - hop heaven - great bitter hit - sweet malt background - I took a couple of points away due to wayyy too high alcohol - leaves too hot an aftertaste - would like to drink more than a couple of these but I’d fall over! Great beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle from Bradley’s. Pours a cloudy golden with a lovely lingering pillowy white head. It looks incredible. Aroma is one of the nicest I have ever smelled - lots of floral and fruity citrus, pine, strawberry, caramel, and a light touch of vanilla. Very finely balanced taste between the powerful and interesting dry hoppy bitterness and a lovely delicate caramel sweetness. Lively, dry and bittersweet finish. This beer is incredible. I would drink this again and again if I could get my hands on it. Comfortably the best IPA I’ve ever had.
