3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2017 355 ml bottle. Pours light copper with an off-white head. The aroma is moderately hoppy (flowers and citric fruits) with distinct malty notes of cookies and raisins. Medium to full body with oily texture and soft carbonation. The flavor starts pretty sweet with a primary bitterness that increases towards the finish. Hints of smoke caramel and the taste of honey, that maybe lingers a bit to long, along with ripe mangos and grapes and overripe apples and pears.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
From a 355ml bottle on 20//2016. Pours a murky golden with a medium head. Has a lovely aroma which is equally malty and hoppy, with lots of citrus and some floral notes. Taste wise, this is big from the get go, with sweet caramel and biscuity malt, lots of sweet citrus and stone fruit (orange, apricot). Finishes with a big, satisfying hops, with pine, resin and grapefruit all in the mix. The texture is slick, with average carbonation. Exhibits sensational malt/hop, sweet/bitter balance. Complex, chewy and delicious. An absolutely top flight DIPA. I can’t believe the comparatively modest score it has on here. Outstanding.

Legerement orangée, petite carbo, collet moyen persistant.
Superbes aromes, sève, ananas, juste ce qu’il faut, rien d’extravagant mais bien équilibrés.
Tres bel equilibre egalement en bouche, a mi-chemin entre acqeuse et sirupeuse, un caractere malté biscuité, des saveurs resineuses et fruités.

With a deep color of polished brass and a nose that sings of pink grapefruit and redwood needles, the rich biscuit-like malt flavors are intertwined with hints of vanilla, mangoes, and peppercorns leading to a deep, warming finish.
