HopRedHead (322) - Perth, - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a golden orange with 2cm of sticky off-white head. Tropical punch bowl aroma, Nelson hops shining with a very resiny nose. Also noticed a slight sweet bubblegum note. Taste is huge pine and resin. Hop bitterness is big, almost a dark malt sweetness too. Lingering bitterness. Great DIPA, ticked all the boxes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska. Behaglig frisk doft med lagårdstoner. Lättdrucken med en otrolig behaglig munkänsla. Man får lite rye tankar. En mycket bra dipa.

Bottle @ ZZT 9 thanks to Dutchdrebus. Hazy dark orange color, decently sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, hops, some pine. It’s so much better than I am describing. Really worth a taste. Lovely.

50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 10.09.2014
Aroma is hoppy, sweet and heavy with exotic fruits and caramel. Also resiny tones and hints of vanilla. Palate is oily and low on CO2. Flavour is sweetish with resiny malt, caramel and fruity hops. Also some pineapples. Finishes with some lingering hops. Very American.

MunBro (132) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 18, 2014
Aroma is intensely hoppy and has a big citrus blast. Pours a nice golden with white head leaving some quickly fading lacing. Taste is supper hoppy as you’d expect with a ton of great citrus flavors.

Bottle. Massive hop aroma (as expected). Big thick mouthfeel and the malt perfectly balances the bitterness. Very good
