The aroma is unusual for an IPA. Not quite sure how to describe it. Copper color with a head that thins quickly The taste is heavy and malty with a metallic finish. Very interesting beer but not one of my favorites.

A- Pours a orangish yellow hue with a small, off white head that leaves lacing on the way down. S- Smell is very hoppy, a bit floral, indistinct sweetness, caramel, maybe a little pineapple. T- Very malty, lots of light fruit, banana, pineapple, perhaps a bit of melon, with some grapefruity hops that balance the back end pretty well but are not anywhere near the level I expected. M- Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. D- This was a nice little DIPA that was definitely on the malty side. I would recommend it if it is easily obtainable.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein orangegoldenes Bier mit geringer aber schönen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig herb, fruchtig, tropische Früchte. Geschmack stark malzig bitter, fruchtig herb, minimal würzig.

Fra flaske 0,355l på Bishops Arms Kiruna 20 Apr 13. Mørk aprikosfarget. Høyt luftig skum med kniplingslacing. Skummet varer lenge. Litt uklar. Veldig god aroma av tørket frukt med innslag av plommer. Syrlig fruktsmak. Stikkelsbær. Behagelig tørr fruktig ettersmak som varer lenge.

9/18/2010. From bottle. Aromas of malt, hops, caramel, citrus and spice. Some alcohol burn, but good balance of flavors and finish. Not bad at all.

hallinghansen (1905) - Odense S, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle @ bandlys blålys. Clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma is caramel, hops, fruity. Flavour is hops and way to much caramel.

Very strong tasting IPA. Lots of malt, hops and fruits. Nice beer, but it could have been a bit more balanced.
