Pours hazy amber with a medium white head. Nice retention and some legs. Aroma is very floral with resiny, piney hops. Sweet malt backbone as well. Very smooth aroma.
Flavor is hoppy and bready with a clean floral finish. Booze is well hidden. Lovely.

bottle from bierkompass. Hazy deep amber-golden colour, large off-white head. Intensive, spicy hoppy nose. Full-bodied, delicious malty base with loads of deliciously bitter, aromatic hops which are very spicy and have a resiny-grassy character. Well-balanced, a delight.

11.2 oz bottle from New Beer Dist. In NY. Hazy, orange amber pour with a huge head. Awesome lacing on the glass. Aroma is outstanding, citrus and pine hops all the way with a bit malt. I taste the sweet fruit notes up front briefly then I’m hit in the face with piney and citrus hops. A nice malt sweetness comes through at the end. Perfectly balanced. There’s nothing about this beer I don’t like. Spectacular!

Bottle that Jan passed onto me at Essen, Belgium, 18.12.10 and consumed 24.12.10 Big thanks to Jan & Charlotte This pours amber with some haze not too dissimilar in appearance to the I Beat You had earlier, large white head. Big impressive hoppy nose, soft in the mouth, there is loads of citrus and pine zapping around in the mouth and on the nose. Lovely beer, good bittersweet balance, pithy, tasty really good.

Strong citrus hoppy IPA. Bold orange color forebodes the taste to come. Very smooth as with most imperial IPA with a distinct grapefruit taste. The strong hops leads to a bitter after taste. Nice change of pace beer for a lover of imperial stouts. If you like bitter’s, you’ll love this beer.

330ml bottle, 2010 version. Pours a deep amber, with moderate off white head (that reduces). Huge resin and citrus. Great carbonation just tickles the tongue without distracting. Big marmelade flavour (almost a texture), with some more citrussy/grapefruit at the edges, and toast and caramel/toffe in the middle. Really nice balance. Long drying finish. Great stuff

Very nice. My previous rating was a double IPA that had tons of hops but didn’t come together--this one, however, has just as much hop character but is also wonderfully balanced and layered. Plenty of pine and grapefruit here and the finish is very dry, very bitter, with just a touch of alcohol burn.
