3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Above average. This is the original bottling, not the Endeavour version, so this had some age on it. I had this when it first came out and can say it has mellowed but not by much. The aroma is sweeter and has a floral essence. The color is a clear amber with virtually no head. Smooth, almost oily palate. The flavors have blended well but it has become sweeter with the hops bitterness dropping slightly. Alcohol is still present and the carbonation has lessened a little. Still a good brew.
[2015 Backlog] Bottle shared by Victor at Paul’s during the FF tasting. Pours a deep brown body with white head. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with notes of caramel malt, sweet spice, alcohol and pine resin. jsnicholas (628) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2017
Can (12oz) Somewhat cloudy orange with big off white head. Medium plus body, medium carbonation. Taste is a little pineapple, but more pine bitterness that grows. Grovlam (4247) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2017
Bottle. Large creamy off white head. Thick cloudy dark amber color. Aroma of peach, flower, pine, grapefruit, caramel, grain, ryebread. Full body with a thick texture. Heavy bitter with good counter sweetness, quite balanced for this style. Lingering bitter and thick sweet finish. AWISLguy (3109) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 18, 2017
12oz can as Endeavour from bananabi11, thanks! Orangey amber pour with an off white head leaving little lacing. Aroma has sweet fruits, big citrus and some sweet malts. Taste leads with bitter fruits, some pine, some sweet fruits, some biscuity malt. The blend is solid. The body is medium. There is some alcohol presence. Finishes more bitter than bittersweet. Shrug? This is bitterly interesting, but is missing underneath depth. 13.4 Lacho (95) - USA - DEC 31, 2016
Pours golden amber with a creamy colored head. Aromas are not easily perceived, but first taste is bold and a mouthful; not an aggressive hoppy beer, but undoubtedly a great IPA.

Draft. Pale orange with an average white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, and sweet caramel malts. Taste is big pine up front. Grapefruit and orange follow with a sweet caramel backbone. Kinda chewy ans semi dry. k0mpsa (2965) - Tuusula, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2016

This was pretty good. A nice color, the hops are good and well balanced. Not too sweet. A solid double IPA. mateuszk (2671) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 19, 2016
Pours clear and pale amber in colour with nice white head. Aroma of malt, light caramel and some pine hops. In taste medium sweet, malty with strong bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, bitter finish. ABV well hidden, this beer is rally good balanced and lacks maybe stronger kick of hops in the aroma.
