3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml from Liquor Barn, Louisville. Big thick and quite creamy body, a chalky layer of foam sitting on top of a semi-cloudy deep orange. Nose is sharply boozy, with tons of malts, and I wondered initially how much age this one had on it. But it turned out to have plenty of hop bitterness still dialed up, and while the taste was slightly too aggressive and not sufficiently balanced, it was still decently enjoyable.

So good, but the description above is all you need to read. I would drink again but certainly not a double that would hold up to the best of the best. A citrus bomb with pine resin sticky taste. I dig

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
not the best DIPA. it lacks some of the fruity tones of others. very bitter, and a fair amount of alcohol warming. a bit watery and lacks the hop bite i’d expect. decent beer, just didn’t meet the expectations.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pale amber with lush 1 finger head. Aroma is toasty barrel, caramel, candy hops; quite pungent. Taste is roasted caramel and resin. Very malt forward; as the bartender informed me, this brewery’s water has virtually no hardness so none of the hops come through. Tastes like an average homebrew I made once. Body is medium with average carbonation. Overall, the barrel aging on this is not overdone but it still lacks something. Smooth drinking, however.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma of fruit, caramel and butter. Sweet and fruity flavour with sharp hops. More than a bit of homebrew feel to this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Hazy orange with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good duration. Mild hoppy aroma, light resin, some pine, strawberries, peach. Highish carbonation, small bubbles. Fine oily and dry mouthfeel. Flavour has big hoppy bitterness. Lots of resin, chewy candy oranges, strawberry, pine, piney. There is a honey-like quality to the very bitter and dry finish. A very nice beer, actually.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Deep ruby-hued orange, medium white head. Aroma is very fruity, with peaches, strawberry and apricot. Hints of kiwi. Absolutely lovely. Taste is more fruit: mango, apricot and sweet kiwi tones. Very nice indeed; gotta love a fruity DIPA and this is a prime specimen. Nothing too special, just plain good. This one is a bit underrated for sure.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy amber/brownish with a small White head. Juicy grape and mandarine aroma, like a candy gummibaer. The aroma collies All the way throughout flavor and finish, making this a very reliable hop dominated ale. Its balanced by alchohol, bit in the end its a reallyrefreshing wellbalanced powerhop American ipa
