look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A huge, fluffy, three finger high beige-yellow-white head that leaves a lot of thick lacing on the glass. When it finally sinks down to a three millimeter thick head it still is creamy, chunky - Like whipped cream!

Nose: Hops, caramel malt, floral notes, tropical fruit, dried fruit, apple, orange marmelade, pine, citrus and grapefruit.
Taste: A great bold, heavy taste of hops, dried fruit, sweet malt, grass, citrus, grapefruit, pine, resin, biscuit and hay.
Body: Medium body and carbonation. A great bitterness that increases at the end. Soft, smooth mouthfeel. Creamy. Sweet but still dry ending.

I only bought one bottle and that was a misstake! I really recommend this!

To me this is the ultimate IPA with exactly the taste I prefer. Full, rich, character, good balance of sweetness and bitterness. Strong and bold. Satisfying.

Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with a very large off-white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of powerful citrus notes with light floral undertones. Taste is dominated by citrus hoppy notes with some lightly sweet caramel malt with some nice floral undertones and some very well balanced bitterness. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation. Nice hops punch with well-balanced bitterness makes for a good IPA but I could have done with less sweet caramel malt.
