3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 25/V/13 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 7/III/15 (2013-496)
Clear dark orange to amber beer, huge creamy off-white to yellow head, very stable, adhesive, leaving rings in the glass with each sip. Aroma: very fruity, lots of citrus, grapefruit, some pineapple, lots of passion fruits, bit piny, resinous. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: very fruity start, passion fruits, mango, sweet, honey malts, sugary, piny bitterness. Aftertaste: very fruity, alcohol noticeable, sweet and sugary, some strawberry jam, then bitter grapefruit turning into an almost medicinal bitterness. A bit over the top, lover the fruity character but the ending is too bitter. Or maybe it’s because this was my first beer after a week of being sick and no drinking.

Hazy amber with a lasting white head, leaving nice lacings. Aroma of citrus, especially orange and grapefruit, a touch of pine, and caramel/toffee maltiness. Sweet fruity flavour with a little heavy malt, and with citrus hops and a heavy bitterness in the finish

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty solid. Pours cloudy light orange with some head and lots of lacing. Nose is yeasty and big floral hops. Aromas of grapefruit, floral hops, some apricot and maybe somebiscuit and yeast. Taste is light sweet and a pretty big and long lasting bitter finish. Mouthfeel is reasonably full with lively carbonation.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Amber in color. Aroma: Hops, grapefruit, citrus and pine. Taste: Extremely fruity as well, especially grapefruit and pomegranate. Touch of alcohol. Dry hoppy finish. Pretty aggressive palate and the taste really lingers. This is a phenomenal double IPA - a lot of taste, making it something you can really sip for ages.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate white head. Nose is a little hoppy and bitter, but smells like it’s been on the shelf too long. Taste is actually a little sweet with just a hint of citrus in there. Better than the old version of the First Frontier, but still not great.
