Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2008
Orange-golden, most of all like liquid amber - it’s 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. It’s a nice DIPA, thank you Daniel/TheCheeseMan!

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2008
650ml. bottle. Pours out in a hazy pale amber with a rich creamy and lasting white foam. Enormous hop aroma of lychee, pine-needles and blood-grape. Medium to full-bodied with notes of pine-needles, oranges, grass, grapefruit and watermelon. Long bitter finish of grapefruit and grass. Simplistic but tasty.

Defreni (2775) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2008
Flaske. Masser af frugt og citrus i duften. Denne går igen i smagen som er dejlig afbalanceret. Bitterheden er der også men ikke overvældende. Rigtig god øl.

thewolf (11383) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Vinens Verden, Odense.
Pours light hazy pale amber with a small creamy white head. Nice look, actually. Absolutely stunning aroma! Very fruity, very hoppy. Peach, grapefruit, oranges, apples and pine. Nice carbonation and very dry mouthfeel. Flavour is good as well, a biscuity backbone to the diluge of hops. The fruitiness prevails in the taste. Really nice IIPA.

cheeta (1181) - Langå, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2008
Heavy hoppy aroma. Average, frothy, white head. Fair lacing. Mostly diminishing longevity. Clear yellow body. Heavy bitter flavor. Medium palate.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAR 24, 2008
big ups to riversideAK for the bomber... hazy brownish orange color with a creamy off white head. rings of soft lacing are left on the inside of the glass. seriously hoppy aroma... blue spruce, fresh grapefruit juice, light bubblegum, orange, aromatic floral and oh yeah, some caramel. the flavor doesn’t live up to frenzy i just worked up in the aroma (i’m not sure if it’s and old bottle or if it was intended to be this restrained) any way... the palate is nice and dry with notes of iodine (think steamed blue crabs), caramel, iced tea, light pine and some charcoal/ash. loads of floral and piney hops surround my face the entirety and linger in the aftertaste. medium body with a nice soft mouth feel... i’m sure this is killer fresh from the taps...

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Shared by Dickinsonbeer. Hazy deep orange, almost amber in color with a medium off white head. Aroma- is a good amount of fresh grapefruit as well as light flowery notes, with some molasses hanging around in the back. Taste seems more like an ASA, and bordering on a barleywine rather than an IIPA. Body gets a bit syrupy and the hops are there in the form of citrus, but they get lost in the malt backbone somewhat. Bitterness builds up and becomes moderate to heavy in the finish. Thanks Paul.

HenrikSoegaard (11278) - Randers, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2008
Bottle. Creamy white excellent mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Fantastic powerfull hopy aroma, still malty notes is present. Heavy bitter flavor. More citrus notes than perfumed flowers taht you normally finds in DIPA. Very creamy palate. this beer scores so high because the malt is distinct and the hopps fabulous.

Ballast Point Dorado is an indian storytelling which overrules most. This beer questions the charecter 5.0. Why not?
