Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is a bit oxidized with hints of citrus, cardboard, wet grass and some caramel malts. Palate follows the nose but with more focus. Nice grapefruit, citrus peel, pine and round sweet malts easy out the finish with some clean bitterness lingering.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, pours a cloudy dark orange amber with a small beige head. Nose is heavily malted, with loads of caramel malt along with resinous hops and a little pine. Flavour is thankfully not over-malted, with lots of woody resinous hops upfront, the slightest herbal quality, and a solid caramel malt backbone. Surprisingly cohesive and well-balanced -- wasn’t expecting much from a Brazilian IIPA, but this is very nice. Well-done.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
310ml brown bottle, Craft Beer Advent Calendar 2014, not sure which day this is from... Orange pour with haze and off putting floaties. Well formed off white cap of foam, nice creaminess and lacing. Nose has marmalade notes - orangey and grape fruity but sweetish, caramel malt as well. Taste has caramel malt with citrus hops. Bitterness is pretty mild. Aftertaste has caramel and mild citrus. Medium body, smooth for an above 9% brew, but fairly plain for the style.
