12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 11/11/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon/orange peel, pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate pale malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice DIPA style. All around great complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Skinnyviking (7433) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle at Amagerbro Ølfest. Low fluffy quickly disappearing white head. Clear amber body. Sweet peach apple pear aroma and flavor. Heavy hops bitterness, high carbonation and a long dry finish. I like the alcohol level, could not smell or taste it.

stevoj (2494) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Hoppy enough, for an easy coast DIPA. Orange golden color with nice foamy head. Pure hop aroma, piney, resinous, more of the same in the taste. Short finish, but overall pretty good.

pcshotsauce33 (61) - Columbus, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Caramel malty backbone DIPA with strong alcohol presence on the palate for a 9%er. Not bad but not great either. Floral and grassy notes contribute to the IBU. Night capper.

Kopparfärgad klar med mellanstort skum. Doftar och smakar som en riktigt bra amerikansk dipa! Tropiska frukter med lite inslag av alkohol

Floral and grassy. There was something strange tasting about this one. I’m not sure what it was. It’s definitely bitter with a lot of hoppiness. It’s not bad by any means, just kind of a good middle of the road dipa.

MiP (13914) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle, 9%. Caramelly aroma. Clear copper colour. Big stable creamy white head. The flavour starts off quite peppery, but also malty and sweet. It has a high, clean bitterness and a nice caramelly malt flavour with a hint of pine.

tomer (1877) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - DEC 4, 2014
At a tasting, thanks Stas., small stable bubbly head, aroma of dark bread and nuts with some jam in the back, jammy flavour with a strong shrubby herbal bitterness and some bready maltiness in the back,. Boring.
