Pours a dark amber in color with a nice frothy half inch head. Smell is somewhat past prime hops and lots of malt to help support the hops that were there. Taste is much the same. Donít know if this bottle didnít travel well or just got a old bottle. The hops are not what they should be.

Bottle courtesy of Overlord. Thanks!
Pours a gorgeous bright glowing orange color with a lasting offwhite head. Smell is grapefruit, and orange hoppiness and sweet malt. Balanced smell. Taste is hoppy but not as much as expected. Balanced well, and smooth, sweet citrusy malt. A touch too much alcohol is coming into the flavor making it less enjoyable though. Quick finish. Somewhat easy drinking, but the alcohol presence hindered it significantly for me.

22 fl oz bottle. Pours slight hazy and orange with a dense off-white head. Citrus/orange peel fruity and pinewood hops aroma. Fruity and dry hops flavour: citrusy, orange fruit, peaches, pinewood and light apricot. Nicely balanced sweet caramel malt base accompanying this. Goes into a lovely fruity hoppy finish slowly declining in fruit flavours into a rather dry set of hops. Great!

Christian (11612) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 16, 2008
Hazy golden with a lasting off-white head. Delicious sweet hop aroma, dominated by orange, apricot and peach, with a little pine and tobacco bite. The flavour is the real deal: Extremely bitter, to the point of hurting the throat, and with no cloying malt sweetness. There is a touch of alcohol showing up at the end, along with green, pine, hoppy flavours in the aftertaste.

This is another really pleasant DIPA that I have tried recently. Too bad so many are not available on the East Coast.

22 oz bomber. Poured a hazy pale amber with a thin white head. It became clearer as it warmed. This had a lovely sweet, citrus smell that let you know one thing - hops! The taste and mouthfeel hit hard when you first take a mouthful. Wow, this is hoppy! Has to be the hoppiest brew Iíve ever encountered. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy, but an overflow of tingling bitterness powers through the senses. As it warms, the sweetness is more apparent and it becomes more pleasant and appealing. Donít try and rush this. Give it time. Experience it from the beginning hop overload to the sweet orange citrus lusciousness at the end of the bottle that has you wanting another.

Orange-golden, most of all like liquid amber - itís very beautiful! The head is huge, nice and creamy. The aroma has nicely hopped notes of papaya, mango, apricot, spruce and citrus. The flavour is smooth with a pleasant mouthfeel and a nice hop bite. The notes are the same as in the flavour, but I also fin light caramel sweetness. Itís a nice DIPA, thank you Daniel/TheCheeseMan!
