Bottle. Cloudy golden amber pour with a thick off-white head. Some pine, resinous notes, along with a bit of tropical fruit. Pretty simple, decently balanced, overall quite drinkable but pretty average DIPA.

weordie (874) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2016
Pours copper with a good, foamy head. Aroma has a little pine but loads of sweet malt, sickly sweet smelling though. Taste is the same, too sickly sweet with just a hint of bitterness. Not great but OK

On draft. Since this was on nitro the IPA was incredibly smooth. It drank more like a light pale ale than a 8% double IPA. Had a nice balance of hops to malt. Would totally drink this again.

Amber body off white head. Pine aroma. Semi bitter not too but complex but not a bad double IPA

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2016 Can from Clink Beer, Birmingham. Bright yellow colour. Smells a bit like a loose, baggy US wheat beer. Acrid paper. Hops are flabby, orange jelly, paddling pool. Boozy, without being super tasty. Ok.

Canned. (thanks MT). Goldeny orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, resiny some mild spruce and wood to it along with some sweet malts. Flavour is fruity and floral, rather bitter with some slight bready malts, toffee and mild ryelike notes. Hides the alcohol well.

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, orange, pine, hops and citrus.

Turbid/opaque yellow/golden beer with a slight/medium off-white head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and pine; ends slightly bitter and medium dry with hops and citrus.

This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The aroma is intense and inviting, while the flavour is less intense. Thanks to the the bitter and dry finish, the flavour is more complex and has a nice balance.

Geiserich (4157) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAY 26, 2016
Can: Munky orange color, low white head. Aroma is intensive with candy and malt sweetness notes, pine, oranges , grapefruit peel, hints of herbs. Flavor has more pine and herb notes, fruitiness of oranges, herbal bitter finish. Good but I liked the Aroma more then the quite herbal bitter flavor.

Vaiz (4335) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2016
Can at home. Hazy golden pour, thin white head. Aroma of fruity hops, resin, somewhat floral, rye, sugary malts and some pine. Flavor is quite fruity bitter hops, sweet malts and with a thick rye body. Nice balance.
