Golden-amber pour, clear but not transparent. It has a nice head, tall, soft and with excellent retention, plus plenty of lacing. The smell is quite promising - honey, flowers, resinous hops and dankness. The taste is a bit different than what I expected - super fucking malty and sweet up front, a bit like a watered down barley wine, followed by nice resinous hop notes, smokiness and saltiness. Salty and sweet aftertaste, medium body and a nice warmth due to the alcohol make this a good winter beer.

12 oz. bottle poured into a NB globe (24/10/14 on the blue cap)

A: Dark copper, almost brown due to the muddled and cloudy/hazy nature of this brew. Nice bit of head that leaves some lacing and froth.
S: Dank, fruity and floral. This smells amazing, like all their IPAs do. A lot of malt in there that reminds me of Bigfoot.
T: Tastes like a tame Bigfoot. Not truly knowing the age on this, it seems to probably be one that falls off fast. I'm gonna let it warm up a bit though. The hops perk up a bit with some warmth. The bitterness here is quite persistent within your mouth, almost sticky.
M: Even carbonation throughout that is just this steady stream of tiny bubbles that is quite pleasant.
O: The date on the cap leads me to believe this probably has some age on it. Good and bitter, that is about it. This really tastes like Bigfoot with a few weeks on it with just a tad less malt to it.

On-tap at Cask in London.

Beer is clear amber in colour. Good-sized white head. Nice retention.

Nose is pine heavy, a touch dank. Some juicy citrus components as well.

Taste is very good. Pine, resin, citrus with a grapefruit focus. Somewhat juicy, but the pine cuts it in a pleasant way.

Full bodied, moderately carbonated. Oily but with substance.

Overall, a very good DIPA.

A: Hazy yellow/orange with a white head.

S: Tropical fruit, papaya, tangerine, mango and fresh orange in the nose.

T: Starts off nice and dry with citrus peel, lemon and papaya, finishing with tropical fruit and a nectary sweetness.

M: Medium bodied and smooth for an IPA.

O: Amazing. Nice body for an IPA, deliciously tropical, citric and fruity.

330ml brown bottle purchased from Leura Cellars.

Pours a hazed, slightly dirty golden colour. Head is great: big white crest of very fine bubbles that leaves beautiful sheaths of lacing as it goes down. Carbonation is extremely fine through the solid but fluid body. Looks pretty great.

Nose is sharp and thick with hop resin, but with an earthy, dank character to the aromas. Slight pine, crisp and heavy, some mandarin skin, and perhaps just a hint of oxidation. The power is there though, and it does some wonderful things even with what it's got.

The taste is where this really hits its stride in a big way. Gorgeous sweet citrus entry, more mandarin and peely orange, before a really pleasant spicy, but nutty malt character comes through. Cleansing bitterness works with the malt note to provide a bubbling conclusion to the beer. Everything it beautifully integrated, and the hop characters are interesting and very tasty.

Feel is good. Thick and smooth but with some effervescence towards the back.

Overall, this is outstanding stuff. Very tasty, but with balance and cohesion. More, it's extremely interesting, and does some things beyond what you expect from a standard DIPA. Wonderful stuff.
