4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rich orange colour. Large sticky white head. Aroma is loaded with sweet orange peel and a bit of light fruitiness as well. Orange peel, mango and papaya as well as a tropical deliciousness. Very fresh hoppy character with a bit of light pine on the back. It’s not all that resinous or astringent but it is very, very hoppy. Loads of rich tropical fruit and a soft lingering bitterness. A delicious IIPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks Aaron! Pour is clear orange with fluffy white head, aroma has notes of old aged hops with biscuit, caramel, toffee, hints of grass and pine but more orange notes, finishing fairly sweet. Taste is sweet malts, orange, some caramel, finishing fairly sweet, slight bitterness but not much. Nice, but its old.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured the yeast end of the bottle, but I got a good whiff of leafy, grassy hops in the nose, reminding me of the Stone 5th with how much of an aged or oxidized quality exists. Bitter, dry and scorching wood once again, a common quality in DDC beer. A decent beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[1420-20080530] Tap. Ginger spice cookie dough aroma. Slightly hazy, brown amber body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Yeasty plant material flavour seems like seaweed or flower notes. Medium body. Weird flavour, reminds me of something akin to rotting lettuce.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is a sweet citrus and floral hop note, some toasted malts. The flavor is smooth and tasty without being overly bitter or aggressive; dry, sweet fruity malts, light pine. Enjoyable, something herbal as well.

34,1 cl bottle (9%) @ lusikka, bottled 05/2012
Aroma is sweet with exotic fruits, gooseberry bush and fruit sugar. Flavour is sweet with exotic fruits, some fruit sugar, caramel malt and hints of alcohol. Rather typical American‐style DIPA – and too sweet for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at worldbeertaste’s temporary leaving The Hague tasting. Poured a slightly hazy medium amber with a very thin white head. The aroma is hoppy glue, resin. The flavour is strong bitter with a light fruit resin smooth alcoholic woody palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel. A super flavour packed beer with well controlled alcohol.

Fruity and wonderful. Not sure why not just a normal IPA. There is some apple-juiciness. Strong profile here. On tap at DDC.
