4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I can’t report much on appearance because I tried this as directed - from the can. Nose was citrus - grapefruit, mango and pineapple along with some pine, grassiness and floral elements. Taste followed with big citrus flavors, especially grapefruit and orange, but with a biscuity, caramel malt for balance. Bitterness was there but not overwhelming. It predominates in the aftertaste as well, along with pine oil and honey. Mouthfeel was medium and mildly carbonated. There is little to no alcohol burn. I can understand why so many people love this beer…it was great…just not my all-time favorite as it is for so many.

Wow the nose is a hop buffet, I barely had the can open and the aroma was invading the air. It’s extremely hop forward, the most prevalent flavors I get are grapefruit, citrus, and a strong floral taste. Probably the best double I’ve ever had!!!

Pours a hazy gold colour with a white head that dissipates quickly, some white lacing. Aroma of fresh roses and citrus hops, probably one of the best aromas ever. Tastes of roses followed by citrus hop, it's a great beer missing a little on the back end. This is honestly one of my top 5 beers ever if not #1.

From a taster snifter at the brewery: Light, sudsy head with a little staying power. amber color. Big bready aroma with piney hop overdrive. Huge taste with a soft but pronounced bitterness. Stays on the palate like a slice of bread, initial bitterness softens quickly. This is a great complex DIPA that is unusually easy to drink.

Canned, at Man in The Moon, Stockholm. Hazy deep golden, small head. Citric pineapple aroma. Mid sweet with clea, rounded mouthfeel and medium-full body. Juicy and citric with quite bitter finish. One in the crowd.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wintergreen like mix of citrus an pine with a nice dry finish with hops that linger. Love the flowery aroma. Malt has a somewhat biscuit flavor but its not dominant as this is really bittered up. I am guessing they use a load of amarillo hops because its a bit pungent. Strong hype factor! I enjoy this but would take hopslam or devient dales too.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at Man in the Moon, Stockholm
Heady golden color, with small creamy head. The aroma is quite earthy, with some light manure. The body is leaner than expected, but the mouthfeel is smooth enough; strong flavor of malt, toffee, light crystal-like flavor too, moderate residual sweetness; strong bitterness, the hop provides a lot of resins, some bitter orange, but no freshness, and just a minimal fruity touch, it provides instead some sweaty and earthy character. Long final, quite balanced.
Good, but I’m not impressed at all.
