COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve put our all into this monster, cramming in as many hops as we dare, to stand up to the robust 8.5% ABV. We’ve had a few sneak previews here in the brewery and can tell you it’s something pretty special.

Aroma: fantastic hop smell, citrus, tropical fruit, some resin ; Appearance: opaque hazy brown orange, off white abundant foam (not persistent) ; Taste: medium bitterness, low to medium sweetness ; Palate: full body, low carbonation, not very long finish. Very good beer but their IPA is better.

330ml can. Hazy amber colour, off-white foam head and aroma of juicy citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is malt caramel along with fruity citrus, grapefruit, pine and spicy earthy bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry tangy bitter finish. Nicely drinkable.

3.3
ciocanelu (3189) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 18, 2017
Really hazy dark orange color with beige head. Aroma is quite malty with some nutty notes and caramel. Hoppy with orange notes but the malts are overpowering. Taste is quite weird, astringent at first with herbal notes, dry, fermented grass notes, overripe fruits, alcohol. Medium body, low carbonation. A weird beer, not what I was​ expecting from a DIPA.

Great beer only flaw is the aroma which is a bit weak smooth tropical fruits nice dankness to it. Murky orange apperance alcohol in the foreground nice.
