Big hoppy aroma, very complex. Lots of mouth filling malt and a firm bitterness.

Lightly hazy gold beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is finely minerally crisp. The smooth pale malts impart a little sweetness. Rich skunky hops and thick pine. Mild hop spice. Trace of tropical friuts. Spicy skunky finish. A very rich DIPA but its also incredibly drinkable. Excellent stuff.

The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2015
Keg at Brewdog. Hazy dark orange, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is hard to place but theres some bubblegum, Turkish delight, cucumber, flowers and toffee. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is light caramel, twiggy, sugary with some honey, light citrus twang. Nice.

Scopey (14007) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2015
Keg at BD CJ. It pours clear dark orange-amber with a small beige head. The rich, oily, stewed orange, peach, marmalade, toffee and apricot tart. The taste is rich, bitter-sweet, piney, resinous, alcohol boost, wood, peppery spice, grapefruit rind, mild astringency, hop burn, dank skunky hoppage, damp leaves, grassy, toffee, soap with a long, lingering bitter finish. Medium+ body and moderate carbonation. Big old hop-bomb. Although I enjoy many aspects of this beer it is pretty rough around the edges. Quite a lot of alcohol & IBU boost though. Alright, but not quite what I had hoped for.

R4N5H (1069) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2015
50cl bottle at The Globe, Hong Kong on 07/06/2015. Poured into a snifter glass. Clear orange copper colour with a thick white head. Fantastic aroma of hops , pine and citrus. Heavy on citrus, hops and high on IBU. Great balance; the alcohol is well hidden but still noticeable. An awesome NZ ale.

CacheManyHose (670) - HONG KONG - MAY 23, 2015
Clear light orange-copper. White thin head with big bubbles. Smells of piney hop, crystal malt, maple syrup, light spice. Tastes of resin piney hop, light lemony soapy frothy finish. Body is medium-to-thick, slick, gently frothy. Resinous. Crisp malt aroma is nice. Big, bitter but still very drinkable.

HKdIPA (761) - HONG KONG - MAY 23, 2015
500ml bottle from Hop Leaf at home. Slightly hazy orange golden pour. Aroma is ripe mango and strong resin hops. Taste follows - big rich tropical fruity and resinous hops. Big booziness and bitterness that lasts. One of the best DIPAs - a standard to which others should be compared. Lasting boozy warmth. Very big but alarmingly drinkable. Definitely get again.

dresden (1566) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
Golden and mostly clear. Aroma is citrus and pine, not heavily fruity, and slightly herbal. Big bitterness and cloyingly sweet. Too much in every regard.

heyden (137) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 16, 2015
Huge aroma and huge taste. from the hops to the malt to the alcohol. Theyve done a great job to make such a balanced tasting beer which is 9% and 167 IBU!
