3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazed copper color with a moderate sized beige bubbled head complete with a hop cone drift. Been awhile since I’ve had a dry hopped bottle. Huge citric and light pine aromas, along with plenty of carameland a hint of alcohol. Big flavors in many ways, not only from the hops and the malt but also a full power IIPA. Lots of caramel and bits of toffee. Nearly stay too sweet. Sweet grapefruit with a caramelized sugar coating. Hint \s of alcohol in the finish and into the linger. A bit warming. Some bits of smoke seem to work their way in. This around the fire pit on a cool fall evening, would be quite delightful.
Tap. Copper brown, clear. Medium white head. Aroma has malt, pine, orange, brown sugar.
Taste has pine, metal, malt. Alcohol pushes through a bit. Decent aftertaste.

Hazy, amber colored, small+ off white frothy head, floating cone is a nice touch. Aroma is of caramel, medium+ citrus, floral and pine, some resin. Taste is very sweet malt with caramel, citrus, orange and some hard candy, floral pine and some fruity, medium+ hoppiness, bit toasty, medium+ bitterness, dryish. Medium to full, soft carbonation, oily to resiny. Some Atlantic voyage noticeable, other than that, a fine DIPA!

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2017 Draught @ William K Kurvi. Pours dark orange with a smooth foamy head. Aroma of caramely malts, pine, citrus, grass and herbal notes. Taste is sweetish, caramely malty and grassy with some fruits, pine, citrus and resin. Finish is sweet, malty and caramely with some pine, resin, fruits and citrus. Sweet and caramely malty DIPA, doesn’t feel very fresh. JorgeLee (2116) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle. Slightly hazy a ber, thick white foam. The hop cone is an unusual gimmick. Quite a big IPA, very hoppy in the sense of grassy, oily texture, dank, rather than citrus or pine or whatever. Long bitter finish. I quite liked it, even if it didn’t display huge nuances of flavour.

, Tampere, Finland. Light/medium aroma with bit waxy, sweetish fruits. Deep orange color with small/minimal white head and hazy liquid. Medium/strong, averagely balanced taste with overaged fruits. Some wax and minerals dampen the sour nuances. A hint of malts. Medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with malts. Medium body with medium/light carbonation. Overall, bit light taste for DIPA. Still has the distinctive nuances.
Bottle @cgarvieuk, The Keith Tasting, April 2nd. [Rating Backlog] Pours amber slight white head. Nose is resin, grapefruit, toffee. Taste is grapefruit, caramel, bitter aftertaste. muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Woodman’s in Beloit, WI, served a few minutes out of the fridge in a Maudite glass. Moderate white soupy head decays to a lasting ring above the cloudy, near-opaque amber-copper body - no hop cone in this one...big expressive nose is dominated by sweeter, fruitier aromatics - mango, peach - and a bit of caramel-vanilla sugary spiciness, though there are touches of more pungent resinous tones as well...body is pretty sweet to begin with, lightly peppery/alcoholic throughout, lightly yeasty, growing more bitter towards the finish though the hops never really overtake the sweet malts until the very end which is just a bit drier and nicely sharp...body is full, somewhat syrupy, carbonation slightly low. This is solid enough though somewhat of a disappointment for me after the masterpiece that is their "regular" IPA, Hop Whoopin’. I think it definitely needs to be drunk a little warmer than what I started it out at - I tend to like IPAs fairly cold but in this and some other cases it doesn’t bring out the flavor as much as something closer to 55-60 degrees (F) does. gaudinosmotors (21) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 9, 2016
Thick, cloudy golden and almost gooey goodness. It’s a little thick on the nose. Almost dirty look to it. 2 bug hop buds swimming around the bottle caused a fairly bitty drink but the creamy and caramely orange taste offset that happily. It’s a now and again bottle tho. I couldn’t drink many.
