2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Valhalla.. Pour is a dark gold with fluffy white head. Pour is a bit cloudy. Smell is sweet with some nice citrus and caramel. Taste is both sweet and bitter. Sticky and oily mouthfeel. Overhopped and too sweet. Overall imbalanced and pretty much a mess.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours hazy golden with a little white head. Aroma of sweet caramel, fudge and ripe fruits. Taste is very sweet for a DIPA; it is more malts-driven than usual. Bitterness is medium at best. The palate is medium to full bodied, flat to moderate carbonation. A good sweet DIPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nelson Imperial IPA version, 0,355L bottle, BB 15.04.2014. Pours clear golden with white head. The head stays, nice lacing. Aroma is berries, fruits. Taste is sweet caramel, fruity, buttery, malty, and some pine bitterness. Alcohol is rather well hidden; finish is long resin bitter with some lingering sweetness. Overall: I would like to try fresher version, but it’s still very nice DIPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very fruity aroma, peaches and pineapples. Somehow reminds me of brewdog aromas. Taste is a bit too sweet, but still rather drinkable. Pleasant hoppiness. Quite okay, someone described this as "raw" which is just how this feels.

Pours a hazy orange color with a small white head. Nose has mellow notes of rapeseed, hay and chestnuts. Taste has a sweet base covered by a hoppy bite and long dry finish. Carbonation is average and the palate is quite rich, almost oily. This is quite nice but very sweet, the alcohol is well hidden.
