MonsterMagnet (1444) - NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2017
Bottle, pours yellow/orange with a white head. Floral and piney nose, taste follows with hoppy fruitiness a light malty backbone. Fairly bitter, but not feeling strong at all. Was gone before I had a chance to make some decent notes...

themightyjag (565) - - MAR 26, 2017
500ml bottle from The Beerhive. Good sized white head, nice lacing. Clear amber body. Big piney nose, grapefruit, orange pith. Tropical fruit flavour, pine, resin, great bitterness coming through, a bit of spice on the aftertaste. Strength begins to show after a few mouthfuls. Medium carbonation, gentle bubbles on the tongue. Decent body. A tremendous IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

zimbo (961) - SCOTLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Not as huge as billed but punchily herbally bitter and long and puckering in the mouth. More orangy than golden with good dabs of lacing and decent sap structures the whole juicy thing. Easily the best Irish DIPA I’ve ever had.

4.2
triskaideka (369) - Killarney, IRELAND - MAR 20, 2017
Draught from the Salt House, Galway. Light amber with white head. Aroma is tropical fruit - mango, papaya, mandarin. Taste - mango, mandarin - really fruity and sweet and offset by hoppy bitterness. Hides the alcohol well.

4.5
Benzai (15608) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2017
Tap @ The Brew Dock, Dublin, shared with Niilstrong. Hazy orange color, medium sized white head. Smell and taste malts, hops, resinous and piney but fruity as well and a solid bitter finish. Medium to full body and carbonation. Lovely Double IPA.

Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy golden body with a off-white head. Lively carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of honey, pineapple and orange peel. Flavour of salted melon rind, biscuit, resin and mango. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Robust and flavoursome. Really good.
