UPDATED: MAR 9, 2018 Tap at Casc Aberdeen. Pours like a thick spirit. Light haze to an orange amber colour. It looks packed with alcohol seriousness. Nose has superb orange citrus and tangerine sweetness. Boiled sweet sugar and strong alcohol vapour right at the end. Taste has barley sugar and citrus fruitiness that feels surprisingly balanced for such a big beer. Soft, full paraffin-like body. Gentle sparkle has a sharp touch to it for refreshment. It warms the chest in a very good way. I was expecting warm alcohol and it delivers but in a balanced and drinkable package. Really tasty mega-IPA. alteregoo (1915) - Kalisz, POLAND - MAR 1, 2018
Piana znikoma, szybko znika, barwa złota, opalizująca, z pływającymi drobinami. W zapachu mango i trochę cytrusów. W smaku dość słodkie, likierowe, pomarańczowe, ze średnią, żywiczno grejpfrutową (bardziej albedo) goryczką. Niskie do średniego wysycenie, nieco oleiste i mocno rozgrzewające w odbiorze.

Wyszło z tego coś na pograniczu IIPA i ABW, mocne, charakterne w ustach, za to trochę rozczarowujące w aromacie.
This beer smells delicious but the alcohol is not very well masked at all and the beer is sickly-sweet - tastes like someone has taken a load of vodka and mixed it with a really sweet tropical fruit juice. Very poor. AlfredoGarcia (299) - Santiago, CHILE - FEB 11, 2018
330 can, from Beervana in Santiago. Adorabe strong smell, at first smells more like a high yeast beer rather than an ipa. Cherry and pepper on top. Great. Dark Golden look, not very carbonated. Nice. Taste is strong, not at all what i expected. The mango and orange are details, it doesnt have that taste at all. Reminds me of Trois Pistoles. Tell me ignorat or whatever, but wouldnt say it's an IPA to be honest, very different from what i expected. Give it a try, it's really really nice.

Very strange and unbalanced but enjoyable in its weird way. Honey sweet and a big alcoholic kick. A barley wine in disguise? miki74 (211) - Sabadell, SPAIN - JAN 8, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2018 Degustada en Olut Sabadell club de cata,con cuerpo,color anaranjado,algo de dulzor por el exceso de maltas(tiene 12°)pero bien equilibrada con el lupulo. SonOfAnarchy (591) - ST HELENA - JAN 5, 2018
Can. Translucent juicy amber in the glass with no head. Aroma of malt, noticeable alcohol, and a touch of red fruits. Taste is very sweet with an average bitterness. Flavors of barley malt, intense hot alcohol, slight red fruits. Meidum body, slick texture, flat carbonation.
Feels much more like a boozy, awfully sweet barley wine than an Imperial IPA. Not enjoyable. MikeBeermaster (1222) - that shaggy maggot, POLAND - JAN 1, 2018
Can. Tough aroma of malty base with boozy, winish notes and some red fruitiness in the back. Amber to reddish in the glass with almost none head. Taste is sweet with a bunch of red fruitiness, tough malty base with horrible boozy notes. Hard to drink, closer to janky Barley Wine than DIPA. What a shame. rhoihessegold (2217) - Mainz, Rineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2018
31-12-17 // bottle from Getränke Stumpf. Liquid bread, heavy malty sweetness. Some dried fruits strong bitter finish.
