Looks like magic and tastes divine. Pine, tropical fruit and sweet caramel caress the taste buds and it finishes resinous and bitter. Damn good.

Saeglopur (958) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 7, 2015
355 ml, bottled 6/1/15, from Bier-Deluxe.de, shared at Bratislava Slovak-Austrian RB Tasting.
Deep golden to amber, clear body, with a big, creamy, yellowish head.
Aroma of grapefruit, resin, pine, biscuit, honey.
Taste follows this, with some tropical fruits.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter, resinous, a bit alcoholic, a bit dry, with pine, grass, grapefruit, biscuit.

Really tasty! Maybe not as extraordinary as other DIPAs, but a straight, classic example of this style. The perfect balance between piney, resinous hops and smooth, biscuity malts is really examplary!

olio (7424) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2015
355 ml bottle. BBE 06.01.2016. (import sticker)
Pours clear golden color with a large head. Sweet tropical fruits and lots of pine needles on the nose, resinous hops, citric notes and some sweetness from caramel. Very resinous hops on the flavor as well, kind of oily feel to it, grapefruits, orange and subtle caramel malt notes. Bitter palate with a lingering hoppy-oily finish. Quite smooth despite the bitterness, balanced. Very nice and tasty.

330 ml bottle. Fantastic very hoppy beer. Cooper color with white head. Strong hop smell with notes of Grapefruit, wich go also to the taste. This is not a beer for everybody, but indeed this is my cup of tea.

ElManana (1038) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle bought at Bier-Deluxe. Very hoppy, quite alcoholic, not so much of a malty base, quite fruity, grapefruit mainly. I liked the Sculpins more, they are more sessionable and just taste better.

brianza_ale (184) - ITALY - JUN 1, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2015 66cl bottle straight and fresh from SD, THANKS BOB :D !! Pours a medium and almost white dense head; nice deep and bright orange colour, quite cloudy. Smells fruity, huge aromatic hops, floral, sweet orange, piny, fresh. Tastes big malty, citrus, resin, herbs; medium initial sweetness followed by a high and huge bitterness. Perfect carbonation, medium to full body, oily and silky texture. Really big smacking hops in this one like some other very few I’ve tried. Awesome aromas, and good drinkability for being a 10% DIPA

scotchzombie (417) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Hazy deep gold with huge foamy lacing white head. Aroma rocks floral sweet citrus hops. Taste is sweet and tangy grapefruit hops in a caramel malt backbone. Finish is pine hop bitter and quite dry. Very astringent aftertaste. Nicely balanced DIPA with more bitter character than most. Very good.

Bottle. Clear orange color with white head. Aroma of citrussy hops. Malty and fruity sweet at the beginning with strong bitter finish. Long lasting bitter aftertaste. Full body, low carbonation, warming alcohol.
