ametras (1117) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2016
12oz bottle. Clear amber with a foamy off-white head. Flavors are biscuity cereals, resinous hops, stone fruits, honey, alcohol with spicy and vinous notes. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, sticky texture.

blueshockey24 (307) - Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle 4 pack. Pours Golden Amber. Aroma is Sweet, malty and hoppy. Taste is sweet, malty and hoppy all at once with a hoppy warm sweet finish. Very balanced. I tend to like the unbalanced towards the hoppy end but this is enjoyable.

RaijinSen (291) - POLAND - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle, quite fresh. Pours clear amber colour with almost no head. Aroma of forest fruits, some reisin, orange, just a hint of caramel - not too intense but very pleasant. Sweet but not cloggy with strong carbonation, solid discernible malty backbone, fruity accents and short, moderate bitterness. The key is the balance - nothing stands out and I have no idea how they managed to conceal the alcohol so well. If I tried this one in a blind test I would bet that I am drinking a well balanced AIPA, guzzle the beer... and then I would regret that.

tightslice (728) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 3, 2016
On tap at Gott’s Roadside in Palo Alto, CA. Aroma is a bright bitterness. Surprised this comes across so boozy and bitter (not getting the malty balance that you hear about).

Serapac (305) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy amber, medium off-white head. Aroma caramel, hops. Taste sweet, sugar candy, turning hoppy before again sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sunstoneale (43) - MOLDOVA - JAN 2, 2016
0,33l bottle. Pours golden clear with tall white head. Amazing aroma of caramel candy and some tropical fruits. Medium thick body. Very rich taste of caramel malt and some tropical fruit hop bitterness. Not as bitter or alcoholic as one would expect from a double ipa. But all in all a really great beer. The only downside - having to fly half the globe to get another chance to enjoy it.

mariuspoenari (693) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
33cl bottle, slightly old. Excellent hop profile in the aroma, and the taste did not disappoint. Citrus and exotic fruit taste on top of a sweet malty base that masks the ABV quite well. Would love to try this fresh.

Guruhso (200) - Grindsted, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle. Hoppy Aroma of citrus, riped fruits, pine and grapefruit with notes of malty caramel. The flavour starts very sweet, but finish very bitter and dry. Lingering bitterness and nice heat of alcohol. The body is medium and the texture is oily. Average carbonation. A balanced and enjoyable beer.

ThreeCats (759) - ISRAEL - DEC 28, 2015
Clear copper with off white head. Aroma spicy and earthy, with die caramel notes. Taste full and bitter, with some spruce notes, a little strange, but not bad for a DIPA
