3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Poatersgat
Pours a deep orange color with a huge head and lots of lacing on the glass.
The aroma is lots of melon and citrus forward hops. A little heavy on caramel, the aroma is akin to Bigfoot in many ways.
The flavor is far less sweet and caramelly than the aroma, pretty damn well balanced giving favor to the hops. Lots of citrus fruit, kind of piney with a nice fairly high level of bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bier Tempel, Brussels
Cloudy amber color, with compact head. Nice aroma, fruity, mellow. Good body strength, with malt flavor but most of all spicy Belgian yeast, luckily without sweetness, and instead with strong bitterness. Maybe the final is too bitter.
Never completely seduced by Belgian IPAs, because of the clash of ingredients, this one anyway is quite well brewed.

Aroma di mele, fiori, fieno, caramello e agrumi. In bocca le note dolci vengono immediatamente sovrastate da un’abbondante luppolatura con taglio erbaceo. Discreta acidità. Finale secco

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
26th April 2010
Hazy deep amber beer. Thick frothy off white head. The head gives a hit of fresh lime hops. Palate is light, soft and dry and the head makes it airy. Light soft caramel malt is a base for hops that impart lime, pine with grapefruit and orange in the background. Finishes light and frothy and with more fresh hop. A delightful DIPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle pours copper with thick gold hued edges and tall tan head with some clumpy sheet lacing. The aroma offers up a slightly odd mix of citrus, cherry, spicy hops and pine. Interesting. The taste begins with a mix of pine hops and malt sweetened citrus that creates a citrus orange like hard candy sensations. To midway it gets modestly more bitter with pine and citrus and near grapefruit like hops as the sweet malts fade away. It lingers into the finish with modest citrus and pine hoppiness. Pretty decent hoppy brew. A fresh pint straight from the tap would be fun to try.
