3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at Kristiansand Ølfestival. Slightly hazy orange body with a medium sized off-white head. Fine aroma of citric and tropical fruit with pine and a hint of caramel malt. Flavor is quite sweet, rather bitter, citric and tropical fruit with pine and some sweet malt. Fine body and bitter aftertaste. Definitively a hop driven DIPA with almost all flavors from the hop. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Malting Pot. Pours a deep amber with long-lasting off-white head. Barley aroma with hop notes and soft caramel, and a taste to match. Merits to settle, which allows a nice smoothness to counterbalance the bitter, back-of-the throat hop hit. A multifaceted number.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, BB March 2015. Pours a cloudy red/orange with a big head. Smell is strong caramel and orange, rosewater. Body is medium with spritzy carbonation. Taste is big caramel to start and then a massive piney hit. Wow - strong flavours. Sweet and moreish. Nice balance. Very little astringency but a very pleasant bitterness. I’m not normally a big lover of pine flavours, but it works so well here against the strong sweet caramel. One of the best DIPAs I’ve had so far. Lovely stuff.
