3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is citrusy with some earthy notes. Taste is a bold earthy and citrus hop bitterness with an underlying caramel malty sweetness with some alcohol in the finish. Medium to heavy body with acceptable carbonation. This DIPA is quite potent and deserves the attention of any hopheads out there. Not the greatest, but worth a try.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unclear, orange-golden colored, medium- off white frothy head. Aroma is of caramel, carob, orange hard candy, some light fruit and citrus, sure signs of the Atlantic. Taste is medium+ sweet malt, caramel, carob and orange hard candy, light+ fruity and citrus hops, medium+ bitterness. Medium+ bodied, soft carbonation, sticky. Another IPA lost at sea...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Craft Room. Misty dark orange/something body, small white head. Dry orange notes and biscuity maltiness in the aroma, panettone, and something else, strange. Definitely not the way even an APA, let alone a Double IPA should smell. This was gone ages ago. The taste verifies that. Dry caramel taste with vague herbal hoppy notes and a papery finish similar to the much better preserved Hop Ottin’. I hope to rerate it from a fresh bottle, as with Hop Ottin’ really, but this in particular, as this was a major disappointment. It’s really a shame that hop-driven beers this old are being sold and shipped around - and through no fault of the brewery or maybe even the pub.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: Biscuit, resin, spruce, citrus, pine needles, pine bark, forest mushroom, alcohol is really there too ; Appearance: pale, copper, hazy, white foam, full head ; light sweetness, medium bitterness ; Palate: medium to full body, slick feel, average carbonation, bitter, long finish. Overall a very good and complex IPA, though not bitter enough for my own taste, it gives a pretty cool warmth down the throat (and a quick alcohol high too). Above all, this beer smells, tastes and feels like being in a forest. If I close my eyes while drinking it, i can easily imagine smelling the forest soil after a rain, feeling the bark of the trees, and hearing the sounds of the forest. It is a strange thing to say for a beer, and i was the first one to be surprised, but that is what I felt. - Should perfectly fit a mushroom and venaison meal, also.

Amber clear with rich white head. Sweet grain aroma. Strong malty sweetness with medium sourness and bitterness. Very good, but too sweet for me. Sweet malty aftertaste with good bitter notes.
