3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite heavy DIPA with almost every possible aspects of aroma and taste. It’s a beauty, but you don’t drink that many. Nice clear amber color with a not that white head as expected. Very decent and a beer to try before you die.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Umm I like this. Amber color with large light brown head. The aroma i heavy with citrus and a faint touch of nuts. The taste is dominated with cascade and chinook adding to the citrus and giving a long lasting heavy taste.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 50cl. Appearance. It pours a hazy deep peach colored beer with a small light beige head. Not much lacework. Aroma. Pine needles, licorice, homemade caramel, sorbet, old cigarette smoke, grapefruit, pineapple and nasturcium. Flavor and palate. A lot of grapefruit, homemade caramel, pine needles and licorice in the taste. Rather salty. Nice hop profile. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Nicely balanced. Peppery. Reminiscent licorice, grapefruit and nasturcium in the finish which is salty and very dry. Overall impression. I enjoyed this beer s flavor much more than its aroma. Thanks a lot bov for this beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Marked as best before December 13, 2009. Not really a DIPA in my book, maybe a English barley wine. Pours with a light brown head that sticks and a hazy brownish body. Aroma of grainy brown sugar, marzipan and light raspberries. Taste is husky with sweet malt and molasses. Syrupy mouthfeel, light bubbles.

Bottled. Hazy copper color, short off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, some hop, slight spicy. Slight bitter taste, very malty, some sugary sweetness, cane sugar. Finishes more bitter. Does not remind of a IPA, but more a barley wine maybe.
