Bottle at home. Aroma is big fruity hops, citrus, orange, biscuity malt, grapefruit, pine resin, caramel. Flavour is moderate sweet with a strong bitter finish. Body is above medium. I dont understand the comments about low hop profile, this pretty damn fruity hoppy and bitter with a good malt backbone. Anyway, I was really in the mood for a big hoppy bittersweet IIPA sipper and this one very much delivered on my needs.

DruncanVeasey (8059) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2016
Bottle, from BumDog? Weekend 1. Brassy orange with specks of lace and a low collar. Aroma of deep fried apricots in batter, tinned peaches and Murray Mints. Menthol, Murray Mint, tinned peach flavour with any suggestion of sunbaked coniferous hop deeply buried in honeyed peach, Liptons peach iced tea, Chinese deep fried balls in sweet sauce and medicinal lozenge sweetness. Alcohol buried even deeper. An enigma. Sink is having none but IPA doesnt have to taste this way.

coachd (649) - Missouri, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Very sweet aroma of caramel and butterscotch with a trace of west coast style hops in the background. Murky bronze color with a huge tuft of cream colored foam. Tastes very sweet like the aroma but with more hops. Not bitter, pleasant overall for a DIPA. Thick palate with good carbonation. Not as bad as the ratings would suggest.

JorgeLee (1919) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle, Beers of Europe. Amber colour, long lasting white foam. Very strong hoppy aromas, citrus and pine. Decent malt body, bit of sweetness and heft, but star is hops, quite oily texture, not overly fizzy, decent bitterness but quite a bit of flavour as well. Pine, resin, a little grapefruit. Quite enjoyed this.

Draft at Tied House. Clear gold, white head and lace. Nice pine, grapefruit hop aroma and flavor. Solid sweetness. Well made. Lighter bodied. Good stuff.

Idiosynkrasie (6864) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2016
355ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, orangey golden colour with average, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy and piney, hoppy aroma with a touch of glue, zesty hints of tangerine and grapefruita sugary touch. Taste is bitter and slightly citrusy hoppy, chalky and mineral notes, some lemon, pale malty background with an almond touch, some cardboard; alcoholic finish. Not much hop flavour, quite papery overall. Not worth the transatlantic crossing.
