4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz. bottle from Hayduke. We shared it via facebook chat. This beer looks like a barley wine. It is dark brown and opaque with a nice light tan head. The nose rocks with both big caramel and hops that are all over the place. The flavor is amazingly balanced with huge caramel and equally huge hops. They are pine and citrus and are delicious. This is a monster of a beer and is tasty as can be. It is huge but that ABV is totally hidden. This is delicious. It has everything one would hop for in an IIPA. Ron, you knocked this one out of the park. Thanks so much.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, bought @ Havnens Vin & Tobak, Vejle.
Clear red-orange with a lovely, frothy, off-white head. Good duration. Lovely resiny hops aroma, some plant sap, strawberries, pine, floral. Good fat malty backbone. Low to medium carbonation, fat and creamy mouthfeel with fantastic hoppy dryness. Flavour is top-effing-notch! Apricot, peach, pine, resin, plant sap. Red apples, dryness... fantastic malt base that is equally apparent as it gives room to the hops. Strawberries, red currant and pine in the finish. Really a very, very impressive Double IPA.

Bottle. This is the kind of DIPA I like. It’s very hoppy without getting too bitter. Everything is in perfect balance. Fruit, caramel malt. The bitterness comes through after a while - without disturbing all the sweet things.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
woody brown color with a soft head.
dank pine hop aroma dominates over secondary smells of citrus, earth, flowers and caramel maltiness.
the flavor is malty throughout and a combination of the notes from the aroma. it is medium bodied (but thin for 10%) but a hoppy dryness on the finish helps this out a bit. 7/3/7/3/15
