3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared at Dean’s sticky table tasting thanks to Deanso. Pours clear amber with an off white head. Aroma of big bitter hops, grapefruit, real hop overload, but not in a good complex way. Some caramel malt. Flavour is light moderate sweet and over moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Awesome double ipa is right up there with some of the great american imperial ipas. The 650ml bottle goes down well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650mL bottle, pours a clear bronze with a small off-white head. Nose brings out yeast, caramel malt, and some resinous hops - quite balanced and more yeasty for a IIPA. Flavour brings out loads of resinous hops, caramel malts, and a bit of candied sugar. The 167IBU is extremely well-concealed. Quite a bit more malty than my ideal IIPAs, but the balance is good enough and it never becomes cloying. Good stuff, but underwhelming.

Pours a clear orangish amber with a small off white ring. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, resin, caramel and passionfruit. Taste is caramel, passionfruit, citrus notes and a nice balance between hops and malts in this one. Excellent iipa.
