4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a transparent brown-orange, frothy white head, minimal visible carbonation. Aroma: Very subtle. Vanilla, raisins, lemon, nuts. Palate: Medium bodied, slightly oily, a bit watery, slightly dry finish. Very pleasant. Taste: Slightly sweet, fades quickly to quite bitter, and then back to sweet for the finish. Probably the most well balanced IPA Iíve ever had.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma contains malt sweetness, pine hops, yeast, honey and some alcohol, but not much. Looks great - copper colored, dark for an IPA with a large pillow of white foam. Too much foam for me, but otherwise striking. Taste is honey sweetness with hops taking over after that. The hops are very unique in this one - they are prevalent and pine flavored but not at all bitter. Honey and hops, simple but it works. ABV very well hidden. This is good but I thought it would be the best IPA I have ever had. Possibly top 10, worth trying but there are a lot of good IPAís out there.

Pours a slightly dark orange with a thin film of soapy head. Strong citrus and grapefruit notes. A very complex flavor, with some dark fruit sweetness and just a bite of the alcohol fading into a really nice hop bitter aftertaste. Iím amazed Iíve not rated this yet- itís rightfully one of the best out there.

0,33 flaske hos Einar, nov-14: vi tok denne etter 90 Minute, og dennehar (om mulig) mer av alt - mer intensitet i farge, aroma og smak. Bortimot en barley wine. Dette er ganglag for sjelen. Helt superb.

Bitter, herbal orange tea with a ginger and butter scotch drop on a pancake. A slight trace of nutmeg. Lingers at the back of the mouth but fades on the tongue. My idea of a winter warmer more so than a DPIA. Perfect with a peppery mustard rubbed rib eye. Oh yeah!

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
clear orange to amber colour, moderate sized slightly yellowish off-white head;aroma of pine, tropical fruity notes, biscuit (Scottish shortbread), slight citruses, maybe some minimal earthy yeasty notes, hints of floral notes and hones, as well as some caramel; taste of malty-syrupy sweetness, pine, tropical fruits, and biscuit notes; heavy sweetness and at the same time intensive bitterness - marvellous IIPA!

One of my favorite beers. Great mix of malts and hops to create one of the best IPAs in the world. Great aroma and incredible taste.

Draft pour at Logan Arcade into snifter. An intense blend of pungent, resiny, oily hops along with an oh-so-sweet malt profile. Big in flavor and big in mouthfeel - there is a stickiness here that clings to your palate.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fairly clear orange-amber colour with thin white head. Grapefruit upfront on the nose with perhaps some other fruits such as banana and mango too. Kinda grassy and floral. Taste is great. Strong biscuity backbone which combines well with the oily profile and alcohol warmth. More richly sweet than a regular IPA, but the bitterness and carbonation levels balance this one out nicely.
