Pours a nearly clear dark orange with thick, creamy and cream colored head, plenty of lace haphazardly trailing down the glass. Smell: about what I'd expected with a 5 month old bottling date... still plenty of the Amarillo in action, but past the point of the dry hop popping out of the glass. Orange extract, huge apricot, resiny note; quite sweet and slightly bready backing. Taste: caramelized apricot, orange juice, orange candy, sweet bread, resinous and slightly spicy. Definitely enjoyable and I imagine that fresher it comes off more like a beer that should be named after it's dry hopping.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 14C). Bottle 33 cl - Bottled on 01/05/14. AROMA: medium/low fruity and floral aromas, balanced with a sweet malt profile. very prominent alcohol aroma but it isnt hot. APPEARANCE: deep golden/orangeish color and very hazy (dry hopped). good off white moussy head with good retention and alcohol derived viscosity. TASTE: sweet malty profile balanced with floral and slight fruity notes. high bitterness that lingers well beyond a medium-dry aftertaste. clean and smooth alcohol background without solventy character. PALATE: smooth medium body with a smooth warming alcohol profile. medium carbonation. OVERALL: although a nice IPA, its very high residual sweetness isnt characteristic of an imperial/double IPA.

A nice IPA that gets the job well done. I will surely drink this again.

Belle bière rousse avec un joli col de mousse , elle est très surprenante avec une odeur de litchis. En bouche le gout de litchi reste très présent avec une belle amertume plaisante. Au fil des gorgés ce gout de litchis (soho) devient vraiment écœurant et on ne trouve pas la flaveur de l'amarillo.Dommage on a pas envie d'y revenir.

Beautiful bitter with a generous moss, it is very surprising with its smell of litchis. In mouth the taste of litchi remains very present with a beautiful pleasant bitterness. In the course of the full this taste of litchis ( soho ) becomes really disgusting and we do not find the flaveur of the amarillo. It's a pity we have not desire to drink a new one.
