500ml bottle. Pours a clear golden amber, with a medium off-white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves acceptable lacing. Potent tropical hops aromas blend with floral notes and some nutty malt. Powerful grapefruit and pineapple hops up front lead into some toasty, slightly charry malt in the mid-palate, with more pineapple and a touch of mango coming into the finish. There is a lingering bitter aftertaste. This is a very nice DIPA, and only improved by the fact that I have just spent three months in Africa and the Middle East, where the beer is either terrible or totally non-existent!

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, grape, orange, tropical fruit, hops, citrus and grapefruit.

Turbid/opaque yellow/golden beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium white head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, grape, orange and tropical fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops, citrus and grapefruit.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. What a bucket full of a perfect mix of hops. Sweet orange, mango and a mix of soft grapes, melon and pineapple; with a superb finish of rather bitter citrus and grapefruit. Great aroma and appearance as well.
