brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Pours a hazy burnt orange color with a two finger off white head. Head dissipates slowly and leaves a blanket of lacing. Lots of carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of tons of grapefruit, blood oranges, floral, grape, raspberries? A wine-like smell. Little bit of breadiness and carmel coming through after the initial bitter fruits smell. A musty, earthy smell as well. This beer is almost a year old and the amarillo hop presence on the nose has still not gone away. Taste starts with a moderate hop presence that brings grapefruit, orange, grape, maybe some passionfruit. Leaves you wanting more on the front. Then get a nice dose of breadiness along with some carmel sweetness from the malts. Then comes back with more grapefruit, grape, orange, grass. Decent bitterness, but almost get a watered down sensation on the finish, as well as some booze. Get a good amount of sweetness on the finish as well. Low full body with a sticky and creamy mouthfeel. There is something definitely missing here. The age unfortunately showed and took away from the hop bite. Some IPA’s from overseas can really be great, but the high price combined with the lack of freshness is really starting to push me away. A fresher bottle could change my mind, but there is just something lacking here.

obe83 (47) - Livorno, ITALY - NOV 25, 2014
di un tono sopra l ambrato ha una schiuma spettacolare compattissima ordinata e iperpersitente. al naso la potenza del luppolo amarillo impiegato in dry hopping le dona un aroma erbaceo e resinoso fuori dal comune. in bocca dominano i malti caramellati che sprigionano sentori biscottati che si amalgamano perfettamente con i sapori balsamici e amari rilasciati dai luppoli. l amaricatura persiste al palato anche ben dopo la fine della bottiglia lasciando un bell amaro in bocca accompagnato dal sapore etilico dei suoi 9,3% vol. per me troppo corposa e troppo alcolica quindi non semplice da bere, ma anche uno senza lingua non potrebbe che definirla molto buona!

Kauge (250) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle from Stockmann in Tallinn (€ 3,39). Bottled 23/01/14. Pours a near opaque dark amber with a massive light beige head. Retention and lacing very good. Nose is flowery sweet and citrusy bitter, resinous-piney, with a warm musky and spicy undertone. Taste is very sweet upfront, then grapefruit seed and resin bitterness, finishing with a thick ginger biscuity bittersweetness. Hops beautifully balanced by malts. Some alcoholic tingle detectable. Body medium, carbonation near flat, palate slick and oily. Wonderful stuff, though much sweeter than I’d like my DIPA.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2014 Couleur ambrée un peu trouble, forte mousse blanche cremeuse (on dirait un Irish coffee dans mon petit verre). Super nez houblonné fruité et floral. Gout super fruité. fruits noirs, fruits secs, fruits tropicaux (goyave), pamplemousse!, petite amertume houblonnée et résineuse.. fin de bouche amère avec toutes ses saveurs, bien longue... Super complexe, une petite bombe fruitée, intense et ronde en bouche. Nickel!
