330ml bottle (Koht Winter Auction, Tallinn)
Yay, I won one! Lovely fruity berry aroma, tons of caramel. Taste so full of vanilla toffee. Both fruity hops and bitter pungent component too. Medium palate, more IPA than IIPA. Finish has dry rye huskiness and acidity. Bloody excellent DIPA, a style I’m not normally a fan of.

Color rosso rubino. Al naso e al palato una bomba di agrumi e frutta tropicale. Un capolavoro da un grande birrificio.

SinH4 (2185) - Garching, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2015
Hazy brown-amber color with big beige head. Big caramel and citrus fruits, peaches. Lots of soothing piney juice, hop and malt kick, very sirupy sweet mouthfeel. Warming peach finish, Amarillo typical. Very nice, but a bit too sweet to be over the top.

Ottima IPA dal colore scuro. Il gusto classico e forte della IPA. 8.5% ed è perfetta.

75 cl bottle @ hotel room, Rome. BBE 10.12.2015.
Pours dark amber color with a large lasting head. Lots of sweet fruits on the nose, caramel, some resinous hops and some malts. Sweet fruity flavor, mango and orange mostly, caramel malts and resinous hops too. Maybe a tad too sweet but still a good fruity DIPA.

75 cl bottle @ hotel room, Rome. BBE 10.12.2015
Aroma is somewhat musty with strawberries, toffee, caramel and hay. Flat palate, low on CO2. Flavour has strawberries, grapefruit, caramel, toffee and gluey notes. Finishes with woody notes and tobacco(!). Too much strawberries here.
