3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Body is a hazy light amber color with a small white head. Nose has caramel, spices and some fruity notes. Taste starts off with a caramelly and fruity sweetness, followed by a strong bitterness that stays on the palate. Carbonation is very soft. Surprisingly light palate considering the ABV, the alcohol is well hidden and only betrayed by the warm feeling following every sip. Very nice!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 330 ml bottle. Murky amber-orange-copper brown with quite a bit of visible sediment, a 3-finger khaki head and very good lacing. Aroma of musty apple, yeast, earthy hops, bread, sweet malt, banana, nutmeg, funk and mild citrus. Taste of nutmeg, pepper, banana, sweet malt, caramel, bread, earthiness, guava and apple. Medium/full body and high/medium carbonization. Very nice mouthfeel unless you hit some of the sediment, most of which settles after a few minutes. Distinctly different from an American IPA. Most of its complex flavor aroma are built on malts and yeast. Hops are present, but well in the background. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slighty hazy body, very deep orange to light red in colour, with a very tall off-white head sitting on top and overflowing from the glass. Good retention, thick lacing rings left on the glass.
Aroma of tropical fruits, pineapple, qute hoppy, some malts.
Taste is malty, very fruity and again very hoppy.Aftertaste also very fruity with a hint of the high ABV. Really great, although with the bitterness on mid-range levels but with a good, long duration.
Good carbonation with a soft bite on the tongue, medium thin body, nice dryness on the palate, a warming touch from the alcohol.
