3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL bottle from Molloy’s. The expectation from a collaboration brew from these two is pretty high I must say. Hoppy(duh) aroma and flavour, pretty fantastic, but with a slight more of a sweet malt backbone that is a little out of balance and leaves the finish a bit cloying, end of the beer gets a little chewy, still a wonderful IIPA though.

Bottle. Cloudy amber with a small filmy head. Reisin, pine hop aroma with some sweet fruit, a hint of something sour. Super bitter hops make themselves known immediately, sweet tropical fruit balance against the pine hops.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lovely cloudy orange golden color with a fine off white head. Nice lacing. Rich fruity and rich citrus hoppy aroma. Some alcohol. Full body. A bit unbalanced sweetness vs bitterness. Oily texture and a soft carbonation. Rich tropical fruity, a bit harse hoppy and some alcohol coming up. A bit unbalanced and some alcohol in both flavor and aroma drags it down.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very strong hoppy smell. Almost an eteric oil strong one. Pours with quite some head, brown-ish. First taste is full bodied, very well balanced and you just search for the 408 ibu bitterness, but it’s not there! It comes after you swallow and pleasantly dries your mouth. An excellent beer!
