3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of and shared with Iphonephan. Poured cloudy golden brown with a light frothy head and some fairly long lasting lace. Nice malty aroma. Warm bitter typical DIPA flavour but with a rather unusual aftertaste which I'm having trouble placing. Not my favourite DIPA, but nice to taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster at Standard Market. Certainly a big smack of hop in the nose and on the tongue, even in my little sample. A little estery for a big IPA, which gives it a fruity note playing off the hops. Bitterness seems only lightly piney and more juicy than citrusy. That may be because I was sampling wines before turning to Standard Market’s amazing tap list.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle to the dome. Drank in September 2012, bottled in September 2011..ouch! EIther way seems to hold up quite well visually, nice steady beige head over a red-orange-brown body. Some mild seashore hops in the aroma. Not bad or off, but assumably a little more malty and less hoppy. Big bold malt tones and a resinous hoppiness bring it quite close to US Barleywine territory. Pretty solid offering, definitely respectable for holding up after a year.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Intense, bittering hops dominate the aroma with some alcohol in the back. Deep burgeondy/copper appearance with a thin foam. Massively complex flavors of harsh bittering hops upfront with an intense booze and molasses, caramel and bready malt. Intense alcohol sting on the finish. Overall, this is a beast of a beer with lots of piney, bitter hops and complex malts to support it. I’d give this an A+ rating. Fantastic.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours copper with a tall tan head. Aroma is citrus and grass, spicy hops, a hint of malt. Taste citrusy hops with a bitter slightly boozy finish. Fine carbonation, nice mouth feel, just right for a DIPA.
