Hazy orange to bronze color with low short-lasting white head. Aroma has sweet upfront with honey, medium caramel, spicy, pine. Medium tropical nose afterwards, melon, grapefruit, citrus. Taste is medium toffee sweetness with well balanced medium pine and earthy bitterness, short lasting. Well balanced. Body is full, medium carbonation, thick oily body.

omhper (22607) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2014
Keg at Slowbeer, Melbourne, Victoria. Cloudy pale amber, small head. Bready grapefruit aroma. Mid sweet with full body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Caramelly malt, bread and grapefruit, then a smashingly bitter finish. Much more bitterness than aroma.

Jorn69 (2358) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2014
@ Ölbutikken 8/2-2014. Flaska från Ölbutikken, Köpenhamn. Mycket trevlig doft, tall, grape, maltig, karamell, ganska humlig, medelfyllig, bra beska. Lång besk avslutning.

neverleaveopen (233) - GERMANY - FEB 12, 2014
what a beer. slightly hazy amber with a fine head. amazing aroma of dominant hop notes (citrus, peach, grass, floral) and slowly unfolding layer of caramel and roast notes. well-balanced, very pleasant bitterness. no hint of alcohol in the aftertaste. brilliant, but a bit pricey.

beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - FEB 8, 2014
Not terrible by any means, but was definitely hoping for more from such a highly rated DIPA. Perhaps it had sat on the shelf a little too long because the hops weren’t the freshest in the world. More bready malt than I would like, this was more of a supped up English IPA than a true hop bomb.

rangamike (28) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2014
Tap. Pours clear amber, thin head with reasonable lacing. Hops, hops and more hops. High ABV and bitterness keep it in check.

Rob_D_UK (1330) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2014
Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma strong of pine and citrus hops plus a good amount of caramel malts. Flavor about the same, really hoppy.

monoroc (49) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 14, 2014
Pours cloudy golden / amber color with a minimal off white head. Malty hoppy nose. Tasting malt, caramel and pine with a broad but balanced hoppy bitternes.
