Bottle from my ex-colleagues. Thanks a lot! Pours cloudy golden to amber with nice fluffy white head. Aroma is lots of hops, grass, citrus fruits, pineapple, caramel, malt, herbs. Taste is bitter but also quite sweet with hops, pineapple, citrus fruits, lots of malt, caramel. Lovely.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, near bb date. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma: citrus, tropical fruit, malts. Taste folllows, with very dominant malty sweetness and a pretty harsh bitterness. Not sure if it?s the age of the bottle, but I expected way more. Too malty, too sweet, not enough hoppy fruityness. Still very drinkable though.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of malt, caramel, tropical fruits, pine, grapefruit, orange peel, hops. Flavour is malty and fruity, rather sweet, with a bitter finish. Body is full, mouthfeel is sticky. Good collaboration. I found the Brewdog malty sweetness aspect to be definitely dominant, but I like this a little bit better than the Hardcore IPA so I’ll thank Mikkeller for that.

Aromat i smak w porównaniu z połączoną goryczką pochodzącą od alkoholu i chmielu niewspółmiernie nikły. Alkoholowość podbita chmielem nieco cytrynowa. Raczej słodowe niż chmielowe o dziwo, aromat i smak chmielu słabo wyczuwalne.

Draught at Fermentoren, Cph. Clear, amber colour - almost dark orange glowing with a thin, white head. Fruity, rather hefty aroma with citrus, grass, grape, rich caramel malts, resin and pines. Taste is bitter. Full body with an oily texture and a soft carbonation. A rich beer. Finishes dry and bitter with rich caramel malts, fruits, pines and citrus. Truly an Imperial IPA.

Hi felt like this beer needed pancakes to go with it. It was just way too sweet for my taste. I had it along with 5 others and they all said the same thing. I'm not a sweet tooth so this is just not for me. I'm also surprised to not get any aroma whatsoever for an Imperial IPA. This needed to get 'hopped-up', it was too Malt centric for my taste.

"more bitter than floral or flavorful, this was decent, but fell short of expectations. i prefer bright hops...floral, aromatic, citrus...this was just bitter. well balanced with a nice sweet malt presence. decent beer, not a good value for the coin."

Muy cítrica. Perfecta mezcla entre la acidez y el dulzor. Color anaranjado. Su alta graduación está muy bien camuflada por el lúpulo floral. En general, una cerveza muy fina.
