3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. Cloudy, golden colour with average, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Intense, citrusy hoppy aroma, notes of grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, orange, biscuity malty background. Taste is initially minimally sweet, juicy, grapefruit and pineapple notes, later more and more bitter hoppy, minimally mineral and chalky. Relatively light for a DIPA, perfectly hidden alcohol, dangerously drinkable - brain dead risk.

24th August 2014
Hazy gold - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light, dry and crisp. Little creamy malt, pretty dry. Trace of caramel. Hops are dry pine with a little hop spice. Mild citrus. Dry bitterish finish. Pretty drinkable but lacking a wow factor and I donít get the grapefruit vibe at all!

65 cl bottle @ tiong, BBE 01.01.2015
Aroma is fresh with grapefruit and some orange. Also some caramel. Flavour has grapefruit, aggressive hops, orange and some citrus. Quite what it promises to be: a citrus fruit overdose. Not like it is a bad thing; finally a DIPA that I cannot blame for sweetness or unpleasant lingering hops.

Pours golden color with a small white head. Nice refreshing citric aroma, resinous hops, grapefruits and lemon peel, some pine needles also. Grapefruits, gooseberries and caramel malts on the flavor, resinous hops and some pine too. Nice hop profile, bitter fruity palate, lingering sweet fruity finish. Very tasty.

Pours orange with a tiny head. Aroma of zesty grapefruit, juicy hops, floral notes and caramely malts. Taste is juicy, floral and grapefruity with some grassy notes and caramely malts. Finish is floral and fruity with some grassy notes and caramel. Perhaps not super fresh, but still very tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade, july 24th 2014. Cloudy golden body with a big white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, yeast. Taste is quite malty, caramel, with grapefruit, grass and pine. Sweet and bitter finish. The idea of adding grapefruit sounds good, though I feel the beer isnít as zesty and fruity as one would believe. Itís still a nice enjoyable beer though.
