Maris (1410) - Canberra, - DEC 29, 2012
From a 500ml bottle on 24/12/ 2012 (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours a very dark golden with a small to medium head. Has a fabulous, very strong piney hop aroma, with some floral and caramel notes. Flavour wise, you get sweet biscuit and caramel malt, orange, lime, citrus peel, and a massive, lingering resiny bitterness. Exhibits a wonderful sweet bitter balance and great complexity while being exceptionally easy to drink for a beer approaching 9%. A sensational DIPA. Another cracker from 8 Wired.

Bottle (best before 26.04.17) from Bridgend Service Station. Hazy golden body with a medium white head. Low carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, sea salt and pineapple. Flavour of melon, white grape and honeycomb. Medium body with a syrupy mouthfeel. Very easy drinking for the strength. Id love to try this fresh on keg.

TET (2749) - Kaarina, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2016
A slightly orange beer, a head is medium and blond. Aroma has mangos, papaiyas, grapefruits, also fructose. Taste has fruitness of mangos and papaiyas, grapefruits, pine, at least medium bitterness, also sweetness. Medium+ bodied. Not so fresh anymore, thats degreased the best freshness. But good beer anyway, balanced.

Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Golden with a nice big frothy white head. Huge aroma of grapefruit and mango. The taste starts sweet with masses of tropical fruits. More grapefruit and mango over smooth caramel. Alcohol is very well hidden. Excellent.
