Bottle at The Wedding. Pours a mostly clear gold with a strong, white head. Big hop aroma, lots of pine, citrus and herbs. Fairly sweet character with with bitterness of Hardcore, then the herbs and spices kick in, which are pretty alright. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Nicely balanced to finish, mildly warming, some resinous hops and lingering spices. A nice beer as a different take on the Double IPA style.

ekstedt (6170) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2011
Bottle (33 cl) from The Cracked Kettle. Shady orange with medium off-white head. Piney, citric, and perfumy hops with notes of oranges and tangerines, some bisquity malts in the background. Could not pick the "special stuff". Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with firm lingering bitterness. Very good.

Shared a bottle with benzai. Glad he could get a hold of a bottle. Colour was pretty much perfect to me. Smells nice and hoppy, fresh, fruity, complex. Taste was a little dull considering the smell of this one. Not bad, but it could use a bit more of a kick. Plus there was some unidentifical weird taste in the background. Not bad at all though.

harrisoni (15793) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2011
33cl bottle drunk to celebrate MesandSims wedding. Hazy copper with lasting off white head. Big earthy resiny hops jump right out at you. Some grapefruit hop too. Fruity in the mouth like rich tropical fruit. But lacks some body on the palate. Yes really quite earthy. Some bitterness on finish. Good aroma but the beer as a whole fades a bit

@CPH BF 2011 and also at mesandsim’s Wedding. Deep golden colour, small head. Aroma is fruits, mild spicy and grassy notes as well as some mild herbal notes. Flavour is fruits, earth, caramel and a nice floral hoppy bitterness in the finish.

Bottle at Mesandsim’s wedding. It pours light orange, with a thin fizzy white head and moderate carbonation. The nose is orange, resin, wood, varnish, herbal, nut and ginger. The taste is resin, wood, astringent, hay, grass, orange zest, tangy mango, pineapple, herbal and mint, with a smooth dry-bitter finish. The hardcore IPA character is obvious. A wedding ale that stands out from the crowd!

KØ11. Mild grassy aroma. Also sweetish, like some American hops. Good balance, though. Dark amber colour. Rye mouthfeel.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 Bottle from The BrewDog Online Store. Cloudy reddish amber brown colour with a good head. Fruity hoppy aroma & flavour with strong lingering bitter sweet hoppy aftertaste. Quite novel & good but not world class.

Herbal, citrus nose. Generally, I like their IPAs so this fits in with that. Can’t tell if I get the extra additions from this one. Guess my wife will find out in a few minutes ;) I may get a whiff of the herbs added as more piney compared to their regular IPAs which serve as the base. A gimmick? of course. You have to know that when buying it. Overpriced? yes, even as a gimmick.
