4.1/5 rDev -1.4%

Pours a clear orange with a fluffy white head that lingers and laces.
Smells of mango, peach, pine resin, some honey sweetness and grapefruit.
Taste is bitter stone/pitted fruit up front that goes into a more mango/pine/resin middle before ending on a big bitter kick that has tropical and lighter fruit notes. The bitterness is somewhat harsh but not astringent, though, it does take away from the other flavors.
Medium to lighter body with medium to low carbonation works well. The alcohol is present but not out of balance.
A nice, hoppy and bitter beer that really shines through with stone fruit flavors and some pine/resin.
Serving type: bottle

4.7/5 rDev +13%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
On tap at the Churchill pub in Victoria. Nonic Pint glass
Appearance : Quite a hazy gold/amber but a lot of that was a chill haze; it did start to clear as it warmed up
Smell : Pine, lemon peel, dank and a little biscuity malt thrown in. You can tell this beer is gonna be huge.
Taste : More pine, dank hops. An absolute hurricane of bitterness, it really hits you in waves and because of the way this beer is brewed (mashing and sparging with hopped wort) it has a very complex and intense hop character. Just doesn't fade, lots of hop resins lingering on the palate and far too easy to drink for 9.5% but just awesome.
Mouthfeel : Big and full, lots of body and a really dry bitter finish that just leaves you wanting another sip. Bit of a boozy sweetness on the back end.
Overall : Killer beer, just a massive imperial IPA and for anyone that likes big, crazy double/imperial IPAs this is a must try.
Serving type: on-tap
