Dark copper color with the smell of honey and candied fruits, papaya & banana.
Taste a bit of a let down from 19. Honey, floral, and mild candied fruit. Caramelized malts keep coming through. I at least appreciate what he's going for.
Mouthfeel is chewier and more viscous that most. Remind me Jagermeister Barenjager.
It's just above ok. Downside is the cost of each beer, and it's brewed at Brewdog. I had a higher expectation of this.
Simply doesn't justify the price tag. Nice to try but I enjoy IIPA's that feature less malt and more bitterness.

Amber-orange body sporting a thick, sticky, white head. Strong caramel notes infused with deep, rich fruit; apricot, orange. Thick, chewy beer; rich and syrupy feel; very dry. Deep malt notes overshadowed by very smooth yet powerful hop bitterness; some orange-like esters sneaking around in the background.

Definitely a big 'un here. Packed full of grain and hop goodness that does a pretty fair job of masking the ABV. Smooth and luscious with a kick...

A: This poured a cloudy copper with almost no head.
S: It smelled like strong copper and waxy hops, with some sugary caramel and alcohol.
T: It tasted like bitter copper and sugary caramel, with some orange. It had a somewhat clean aftertaste with notable alcohol.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was an ok double IPA, but the scent and taste left something to be desired. The body wasn't great either, and the finish was rough with a lot of heat, so it must be sipped. Simply not a high quality brew.
