esox (1226) - Oulu, - FEB 15, 2013
Bottled. Light amber, clear beer has lacy thinnish head. Hoppy and malty nose: wine gums, floral notes, watermelon, strawberry, some citrus. Caramel-topped maltiness with some biscuity toastedness. Intensly malty and thick, still not too sweeet. Light dryfruit notes. Strong but really round bitterness. Amazingly smooth palate, full body. Delicious DIPA.

Hoppy but flavorful, a little spice, an excellent well-balanced beer! Top of my list! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tapefuzz (39) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 12, 2016
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber with minimal off-white head. Aroma of caramel and fruit. Tastes of caramel, raisins, fruit, with a nuttiness to it and light notes of pine. Sweet, malty finish with faint hints of alcohol. Only lightly bitter, but the hops are very present and well-balanced. Medium body and full mouthfeel.

Ulysse (428) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2016 Light hoppy aroma. Rather unexpected. Minimal top. Alcohol warming sensation. Malty feeling. Bitterness paste for the mouth. Overall good taste for an IPA. Not the image I got when looking at the label. Not really bitter nor aromatic. I expected a heavy weight but this brew feels out of its category. Still very enjoyable to drink

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
0,33 bottle from the US - Orange jam, caramel, lemon oils and pine needles. The flavor has tons of toasted bread, spice, resin and is dank as the day is long. Powerful caramel and breadcrust finish. WIll get better with age!

jc1762 (643) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Tap into a shaker showing well filtered dark brown with ahalf a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows caramel malt forwardness. The palate is malt forward with a very light sweetness. Alcoholic spiciness on the middle. Well carbonated and medium bodied.

mrjez (440) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market/Sake Taniguchi. A gorgeous looking beer, clear bronze with a frothy off-white head, sticky lacing. Pine resin aroma with plenty of caramel and toffee malt sweetness. Taste excels with dominant Two-Row malt, like plum fruitcake with pine, hints of toffee and booze, citrus. Very smooth for a big beer, the bitterness feels big yet masked or balanced by the malt body. Delicious stuff, pretty faultless.

teamsale (154) - Washington, USA - JUL 16, 2016
On tap. Pours a clear golden amber with a thin eggshell head and light lacing. Aroma is grape juice, other fruits, and some catpiss. Initial taste is sweet. Extremely smooth mouth feel and flavors abound here. The bitterness level is medium, the alcohol taste is light for a DIPA, and the aftertaste is quite pleasant and long lasting.

0.355l bottle. Deep orange body, thick off-white head. Aroma of caramel, biscuit, orange jam, toast, raisins, grapefruit and some brandy. Taste of caramel, toast, orange, grapefruit, raisins, grapeseed and pine. Thick, sweet and bitter. Sooo good.
