This must be getting easier to find, because I finally found some. It couldnít possibly live up to all the hype, but having said all that, it is undeniably very good. It pours bright, amber orange; the head is average and fades to a bit of lace. The aroma is complex. Floral and grassy hops, citrus, rye, and I think some of that honey show up in the nose. The flavor is all big, bright, strong hops up front. The rich, sweet malt comes through at the end. The honey is not a big presence in the flavor, itís mostly there in the smell. This isnít one of my favorite IPAs, I wonít go out of my way to buy it again and I wonít pay ridiculous prices for it. But I have to admit, itís a fine beer.

Fruity, sweet and floral fragrance. Well hopped, sweet and floral flavor. Quite so heavy bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long while. Delicious beer but give it a medium ranking anyway. Follow me @ Kung av Ųl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle thanks to kraddel, thanks alot sit! Also thanks to tderoeck for arranging it to be in my hands. Looking forward to trying this beauty. Pours orange with a small head that dissolves quickly. Cheesy, some grapefruit, mango. Smell is quite dissappointing I must say. Fortunately the taste is sooo much better. Exotic fruits and bitterness, evenly balanced by a big bodied malty, sweet base. It's a good thing I'm not getting the honey out of this, because I hate honey. Good beer, but I'd take Pliny or Heady any day.

Doesnt get much better than this. Poured a medium amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Had strong fresh green leafy hoppiness aroma with orange peels. Sticky. Tastes of oranges, caramel, floral, with a grapefruit finish. Smooth and way too easy to drink. Alcohol content well hidden.

On tap. Served a copper color with a nice head and lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, bit of pine with atouch of malt sweetness and hint of herbs. Taste of grapefruit, malt, caramel sweetness and nice touch of honey. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, a solid hop feel without being over powering. Very well balanced, a rich feel that is not found in most beers.

12oz to tulip. Pours a dark golden orange with a thick yellowish off white head. Aroma is dank, tropical fruits, and hop bitterness. Taste is dank bitterness, with a crisp semi-piney bite.

Bottle. Pours hazy, bright orange with white head. Aroma is very citrusy, lemons, grapefruit, tart. Taste is highly bitter throughout, medium bodied, medium carbonation, long lingering bitter finish, very hop forward beer. Overall, nice.

On tap at bells. Good sweet grassy scent. Not a ton of hips in the aroma. Looks stunning. Tastes hoppy and sweet at the same time. Aftertaste is not bitter. Surprisingly smooth and drinkable for such a big DIPA.
