3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
9%ABV. Double IPA.
Tapped out a deep rich amber 16ºSRM.
Nose was full of rich nutty, malty sweet aromas. A little like what you get when you walk into a kitchen where a nut brittle was made and is cooling.
The mouthfeel was syrupy with a sweet medicinal flavor reminiscent of Chinese "cooling tea", other flavors include a brown bread, nutty, graham cracker like flavor,
The finish is brief, bitter and leaves the palate clean. For me, this was more like pils like finish. Well executed.
Goes on Favorites List!

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.

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
