Bottle in Italy. Hazy orange pour, thin white head. Aroma is full of fruity hops, resin, citrus, pine, slightly sweaty and with some pineapple. Flavor is quite bitter, very fruity and with a huge amount of hops. Thick body, nice and drinkable for such a heavy brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle at home from brewdog online. Hazy dark amber with fluffy yet dense cream tinged foam. dank, slightly savoury onion notes (centennial again?) on the nose. Full bodied, moderate carbonation, full on pith assault, red berries, citrus, slight meaty umami note. the hop bitterness is brash but balanced by quite hefty malt mill. Its a decent DIPA

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Aroma: intense citrus; Appearance: pale golden, foamy head; Taste: intense bitterness, slight sourness, slight sweetness; Palate: long finish, soft carbonation, full body, oily texture
I’m most probably biased towards To Ol beers but I don’t await anything more from a DIPA :-)

Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a clear golden-orange with a white ring for a head. Notes of caramel, sugars, toast, resin, tea, orange citrus, and an underlying boozy note. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a dry, malty, resinous mouthfeel. Malt-forward DIPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber, white head. Smells of sweet fruits (melon, apricots) and some resin. Very good fruity taste that adds some citrusy notes and some alcoholic feeling. The hopping is excellent, very aromatic, the bitterness is way more refined than in the First Frontier. The aftertaste is very good with some citrus again along with the hops. Full bodied, thick oily mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour hazy copper with slight light brown hue. Nose dank hop, sweet toffee malt, minimal fruit hop. Taste dank bitter up front, malty sweet early mid, then flavors similar to nose. Long bitter finish. I like mine more aromatic.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Bright clear amber, small off white head, pillowy that dissipates quickly, slight soapy lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral and pine hops, caramel, some raisin character. Taste is heavy floral and pine hops, medium caramel toffee malt flavor. Thin to medium mouthfeel. Overall a nice Imperial IPA that isn’t as astringent as some.
