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 it’s also incredibly drinkable. Excellent stuff.

fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from 16th Street Liquor, West Vancouver
Cloudy golden color with generous compact head. The aroma is very fruity, peach and mango. The body is not too thick, the mouthfeel is round, it has a nice malt base, moderately sweet, and good hopping, for once the hopping is more fruity than resiny.
Lovely, dangerous.

Theydon_Bois (20602) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2016
Keg at the Queens Head, St Pancras, 21/04/16. Golden orange with a decent off White head that retains well. Nose is a touch farty, bitter orange, light pine, toasted bread, juicy citric peel. Taste comprises caramel, pine needle, sticky tropicana, light mineral notes. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness in the close. Ok DIPA.

3.3
mcberko (18930) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2013
650mL bottle, pours a clear bronze with a small off-white head. Nose brings out yeast, caramel malt, and some resinous hops - quite balanced and more yeasty for a IIPA. Flavour brings out loads of resinous hops, caramel malts, and a bit of candied sugar. The 167IBU is extremely well-concealed. Quite a bit more malty than my ideal IIPAs, but the balance is good enough and it never becomes cloying. Good stuff, but underwhelming.

3.2
TBone (18212) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 5, 2016
Tap at Evening Star, Brighton. Dark hazy amber color, good creamy off-white head. Riped tropical fruits and alcohol in the nose. Medium-bodied. Riped pineapple, peach and then citrus. Hop oily. Sweetish aftertaste. Quite heavy, even glueish.
