4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tuatara need to be commended for this beer as it is one of the best I have tried. While aggressively hoppy at 167 IBU (which I would contest) it has a smooth sweetness that carries the beer. A little alcoholic on the finish, but I am nitpicking on a fine specimen of a beer. Extra points given for 3D glasses that accompany the beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours cloudy orange, with plenty of head. Aroma is sickly sweet pineapple and peach under a lot of resinous hops. Flavour is absolutely gigantic, with some biscuit for a millisecond or so before there’s an almighty explosion of hops. Pine and resin are big but no match for all the fruitiness. Pineapple, peach, lemon, even some apple. The bitterness is extreme, with the tongue left tingling, but all the fruitiness makes it surprisingly refreshing. Gorgeous.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
W aromacie moc owoców tropikalnych - bardzo intensywny, słodki aromat, aż chce się spróbować. Barwa złota, jest opalizacja, ładna, gęsta i drobnopęcherzykowa piana. W smaku nie jest już tak miło jak w aromacie, jest zdecydowanie, intensywnie. Także są słodkie owoce, jest karmel i jest nieco wyczuwalnego alkoholu. Uderza też spora goryczka, ale bardzo dobrze ułożona. Dobrze zrobiona DIPA, w pół drogi między east a west coast.

500ml bottle. Soon as this is open I can smell citrusy goodness. Pour is pretty special with a mega looking head. Golden smoky appearance. Taste is citrus with malty tones. This is a super fresh find. Just arrived at the bottle shop. Gets my vote.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at The Hanging Bat. Murky amber body with a thick white head. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel and vine tomatoes. Flavour of grapefruit, melon, toffee and peppery hop spice with a bold, bitter finish. Medium to full body with a creamy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. It’s not particularly clean (this was the end of the keg, to be fair) but it’s absolutely loaded with hops and I like that.
