3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Queens Head, King’s Cross. Slightly murky, pale copper colour. Messy, sticky, pale cream head. Very juicy, boiled sweet, damp, dank hop. Some lovely woody, resinous notes. Taste is chewy sweet, turning surprisingly moderately bitter. Juicy, fairly light palate, considering the ABV. Finishes lightly spicy, lasting bitter. Dangerously drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle pours copper color with a finger and a half of white head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruits with some tropical fruits and herbal and caramel notes. Taste is a grapefruit and herbal hop bitterness with a tropical fruity and caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation that tickles the palate nicely. Overall, a very nicely done DIPA that is both balanced and tasty.

Now this is a DIPA! Very rich and robust profile, earthiness and bitter citrus hops are forward and most present, but it also has a well backed pine profile and a caramel malty finish. Delicious.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2015 Clear Amber colour with stable yellow creamy head.
Fast rising bubbles. Aroma: without presence of alcohol, strong notes of hops - tropical fruits, pine, citrous, etc,
Flavor is similar: gentle note of alcohol, strong note of hops, especially citrous, tropical fruits, but well balanced with malts: wheat, biscuit, little caramel, dried fruits...texture is silky and smoothy.
Hop bittness is strong, malt sweetness is medium to high
Body is soft-sticky, bitterness is strong, with long lasting aftertaste. Carbonation is low.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to snifter. Pours a murky, saturated deep amber. Rich, robust aroma of earthy and pine hops with sweet caramel and subtle mango notes. Flavor is dense and forward, woody pine stickiness alongside a chewy, luscious fruitiness. Floral notes stick onto the roof of the mouth and in the nose. Thick oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Very heavy flavors here. Enjoyable, but only one is enough for the palate to appreciate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
New Beer Distributors, NYC bottle: Judging from the lack of reviews in the past month, I am thinking I may be having an older than optimal bottle. Pours is really, really nice: hazy amber with a creamy, cream-coloured head. Aroma is pretty nice too: quite earthy. Taste is malty, but with the distinct hops still in place. Very minimal aftertaste. This is a very mild DIPA or it is one that is way past its prime. I can’t tell. That said, it is perfectly fine.
