Mittelgelbdunkel, leicht trüb, leicht alkoholisch süß in der Nase, nicht zu bitter, sehr süß irgendwie, aber auch hopfig, allerdings verliert sich das Aroma irgendwo zwischen den ganzen Sorten, trotzdem ziemlich lecker

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Gary’s
Pours a slightly hazy deep straw color with a decent sized creamy bubbly white head that slowly dissipates. Aromas of orange, earth. pine, and resin with a solid light sweet sugary maltiness to back it up. The flavor is quite sweet like the aroma suggested with sweet sugar covered oranges and apricots. The earthy pine is less prevalent in the flavor as is the bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Its got some nice flavors and I’m guessing most of the fruit flavors might be hop derived. Needs more attenuation and more bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy orange with low white head, quite bubbly. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, mango and light pine. Taste is initial fruit sweet followed by balanced bitter finish. Quite lively carbonation, sticky body, which detracts from the overall experience.

355 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of pineapple, mango, herbs and caramel. Flavour is very juicy with floral hops, pineapple juice, grass, some alcohol, herbs and biscuit. Chewy citrusy notes too. Full bodied with a dry, juicy, bitter and slightly warming finish. Good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden, clear, pours with medium white head that disappeares quickly. Hops in aroma, but it’s not a hop bomb. Taste is more sweet than bitter. There are a lot of malts in this beer but where are hops? It needs more bitterness. A little bit of alcohol in aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit – piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and fruitiness with some piney - light grapefruit hoppyness, some alcohol. Bit thin caramel sweetish DIPA for the masses. Too much alcohol considering the body. Lacks character (and bitterness).

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355 ml bottle. BBE 31.10.2014.
Pours golden color with a medium sized head. Grape fruit and orange on the flavor, grassy, hoppy and slightly malty. Very grape fruity flavor also, some gooseberries and resinous hops. Surprisingly refreshing and crisp, not as heavy nor overly sweet and malty as I anticipated. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaske fra Vinmonopolet Valkendorfsgate, Bergen, juni-14: fint utseende og middels skum. Inviterende humlearoma med appelsin og grape. Smaker utmerket i det bergenske sommervær, fin balanse og litt ekstra fylde fra krystallmalten. Den tørre avslutningen gjør det farlig lett å gripe etter glasset.

Clear deep orange beer, creamy irregular yellowish head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, pineapple, passion fruit, sweet mango, piny, sweet caramel, bit sugary, green tea. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: bit oxidized, bitter touch, honey, sweet, very chemical kind of bitterness, some alcohol. Aftertaste: bitter, some honey, dry, bit grassy, hay, very malty, grains. Too old, alas... :( Probably much better when fresh.

Flaske fra vinmonopolet vika. Gylden, uklar farge. Hvit skumrand. Moderat karbonert. Smaker høy, appelsinskall, grapefrukt, gjær. Ganske fruktig humlet ettersmak. Double ipa indeed
