14th December 2010. At the Euston Tap with Harrisoni. Cheers to Ian for lashing out on this breathtakingly expensive but wonderful beer. Hazy gold beer, fluffy white head. Soft dry palate with light carbonation. Creamy malt base with gorgeous hops. Mild pink grapefruit, orange, mango and guava. Lovely creamy finish. Hugely drinkable, I could honestly drink this till I passed out. Lovely!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz, at Mikkeller. It’s an almost clear one, dark golden in color and topped by a two-finger white head leaving some lacings. Fruityness, pine cones, peppery hints, a whiff of alcohol and a sweetish maltyness in the aroma. The flavor has sweetness and hoppyness well blended, with resin, fruityness, some alcohol and a nice bitterness. Full body, nice carbonation and some warmth. Lasting bitterness with pine cones. Nice. 110528

Hazy orange color, huge off-white head. Strong nose of mango, rye, berries and bread. Bitter, fruity, toffee, malty flavor. There is some cracker maltyness and citrusy notes. Drinkability is nice. Could be more complex and bottle could be more fresh, but overall quite good DIPA.
