4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at hopaholic. Hazy amber colour, with small white head. Nose of flowers and some notes of honey. Taste is medium bitterness wih some floral notes. Very well balaced beer overall, and when I say DIPA this is the nose/appearance/taste etc what I have in mind. (It might be just the fact that this not my first beer today, but i love it)

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a bad DIPA.. But CALM DOWN WITH THE YEAST! Big flavour with grapefruit and peach/stone fruit hop profile backed by a sweet but balanced malt. The problem lies in the overly yeasty finish.. A problem a lot of European ipas suffer from. European Brewers need to drink more American ipas and take notes if they want to improve their dipas.
