look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The beer is clouded orange amber with a tint of brown, the head is off-white settles slowly, and leaves lots of lacing!

The smell has a hint of sweet toffee, and an abundance of citric notes, lime, grape-fruit, and floral ingredients, pine and resin.

Some caramel, toffee and butter-scotch upfront. Then the citric rape-fruit aromas that quickly passes to much grassy bitterness, nettles and lemon peel. The high ABV is not felt.

Medium low carbonation, a smooth and rich body, a very long dry feeling afterwards.

To me this was an extremely good DIPA, well-balanced and optimized for my taste.

Pours a pale amber with a bone white sticky head that lasts quite a while!

Smells of h ops of course. Mostly the resiny hop notes, but there are alot of fruity, citric notes in the back along with a biscuity, slightly bready maltiness.

Taste is surprisingly light, nothing heavy at all here. A massive hop prescense of course, mostly soft pine and mellow tropical fruits in the back, not as much citrus as was expected from the nose...But the body is just right, fits the hops very well and balances it up good, although I would actually have liked some more h op flavours, expecially of the fruitier kind. Finishes off with an elegant and long bitterness that reminds me of unripe apples.

Very light mouthfeel for being 10% ABV, but it fits the flavour profile of the beer rather well. Carbonation is soft and fitting with small gentle bubbles.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.

Pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is earthy, resiny hops. The flavor is more of the same with medium bitterness. Earthy hops and some piney hops. Also get a little citrus hops but it is hidden behind the pine and earthy hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
