Notes: This double IPA is hazy orange, dense bubbly white head, good lacing. Aroma - big tropical fruits, sweet fruity malts, grapefruit pith, lots of pithy resinous fruits, super aroma. Taste as the aroma, great background of sweet fruits, mango, tropical nots, juicy citrus, resinous hops, good bitter sweet balance, complex flavour, so drinkable for the abv, cracking stuff.

look: one finger white head which dissipates to a thin layer of bubbles with good retention, bit of lacing, beer is a rich amber colour, somewhat hazy, few bubbles flying up the beer.

smell: really fruity and juicy, mango, passion fruit, pomegranate, lots of pineapple, some caramel malt flavours, quite sweet smelling but not overwhelmingly so, alcohol is slightly noticeable, a bit of vanilla, smells most inviting.

taste: a real intriguing malt character there at first, subtle bread and grass flavours which then give way to the sweet caramel flavours, then the aforementioned series of fruit flavours take hold, then there is a big smack of hop bitterness on the finish, loads of pink grapefruit, once again the alcohol is noticeable in not exactly the most pleasant way but it’s not too off putting.

feel: medium bodied, medium carbonation, a load of warming from the alcohol, the hop bitterness can be felt long after the finish on the back of the tongue.

overall: a good beer, but i did expect a little better for what many consider to be the best beer from my country, however i don’t think i had the freshest can, so perhaps that was a factor, still a good beer though

Wow, this was a shock. Double IPA can sometimes be a bit to much to enjoy imo but this goes down great and really is one of the best IPAs I have had in a long time. Well done guys!

500ml bottle from McCambridges of Galway, Galway (€7.15):
Excellent stuff, easily the best Irish beer I've tried & well ahead of the next closest, the same brewery's Full sail IPA. This one opens with lots of tropical fruits, nice pine bitterness & some sweet malts that help balance things. Full of flavour from the start with good fruits early on & alcohol content well hidden. The beer was an easy one to drink & well worth the fairly high price I paid for the bottle; definitely worth hunting for if you find yourself in Ireland at any point.

Pours a dark orange/catamel colour. Very hoppy nose, sweet malts, robust aromas, and definitely smells like a big beer. Tastes sweet, caramel malts, quite hoppy, but well balanced with the malts. Citrus nitesnotes, orange, passionfruit, heavier-bodied.
