4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy golden colour with a big fluffy dirty white head leaving nice lace up the glass. Aroma is sweet orange citrus, sweet maltiness, fruity and notes of pine. Flavour is sweet caramel, citrus, pine, some alcohol(not harsh), spiciness, bitterness is high and lingers into the aftertaste without being harsh but much more enjoyable and a dry finish. Very well balanced IIPA.

Ładna piana, lekkie zmętnienie. W aromacie i smaku silnie zaakcentowane żywiczne igliwie i cytrusy. Pełne body. Przebija trochę alkohol. Piwo dość wymagające, ale nie "męczące".

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
