3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is really malty and wet grassy. Brown sugars and caramel sprinkled with some spruce and pine needles. A deep forest smell. Taste is also way more down the darker and murkier regions. More Scandinavian forest than tropical rain forest. Nothing wrong with that though. Pretty heavy and moist taste with a bit of dark bread thrown in for good measure. The "devil" in this is a more dwelling and lurking evil than the bold and outspoken evils of today. Solid brew, and glad to finally have tried it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Transparent copper red with a negligibly sized white head. Pleasant aroma containing notes of flora, spruce, caramel and mild hops, albeit not very pungent. Light bodied, thin, and refreshing. Bitter flavour consisting of hops, spruce, tropical fruit, and mild caramel with a lingering bitter finish. Nice, but not spectacular.

YES! This is an exceptional IPA. Enough hops to get the flavor and aroma, but not enough to make this difficult to drink. Malt and Bitter are balanced very nicely

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice aroma with peaches coming to mind, the first sip reveals a comforting hop nose and tongue. The lingering bitter is smooth but not support super clean. Overall a great beer with a decent punch.

Versa un bel colore ambrato al naso sentori di agrumi al palato imbocco dolce per poi evolversi in un piacevole amaro floreale ed erbaceo la mia ipa preferita.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber, almost brown, with medium nicely pronounced head. Aroma is sweet and fresh, a lot of fruit notes, some spices also. Taste is full bodied, quite sweet at the beginning, very rich taste. A slight bitterness follows and leaves your mouth nicely dry. A good IPA beer.
