Draft at Great Beer Bar, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. Poured a hazy straw colour with a frothy, long-lasting white head. The aroma is malt, citrus fruit, woody, light resin hop. The flavour is moderate sweet light bitter with a smooth, rich, malty, dry woody hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A great DIPA with well hidden alcohol and plenty of fruit. Milter (1166) - Nyborg, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2017
Virkelig en god imperial IPA. Masser af humlesmag. Masser af fylde. Rimelig frisk Vells (2006) - Rīga, LATVIA - NOV 8, 2017

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 Aroma is nice and hoppy, feels balanced between malts, bitterness and alcohol. Taste is sweet and malty, but has hops as well. Grapefruit, ripe apricots, citrus. Feels balanced, but not overly complicated. Nice. m7hildeb (293) - - OCT 2, 2017

Taste of boiled sweets, caramel, some spice, pine, resin, slight grass, orange, a little alcohol and subtle spicy, floral hops. Medium to full bodied and an oily texture.

Bottle. Mitchell’s Wines, Sheffield. 8.9%. Different branding, too, but I reckon the same beer. Pale amber. Soft haze. Thin and sticky white head. Slow and leggy. Nose has barley sugar malts. Some nutmeg like spice. Some fusty orange. Taste is heavy sweet, turning heavy, ripe citrus bitter. Medium to full body. Soft carbonation. Oily and chewy. Finish gets a bit resinous and sticky sweet. Full on.
