Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2007
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thick beige head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy giving it notes of grass and grapefruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and lots of hops giving it strong notes of grapefruit.

bhensonb (11494) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 2, 2011
Tap at Beer Revolution. Pours clear amber. Strong hop aroma - fruit-floral-resin. Med+ body. Flavor is very mixed hop. floral, fruit, citrus, resin - burns the tongue just a bit. Quite a bitter finish. Boldness rewards the brave brewer. Brilliantly hoppy ale.

madsberg (10458) - Sřborg, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2007
Bottled. Orange coloured. Unclear. Dense light brown head. Pines, sweetness, herbs, flowers, spice and light caramel in the aroma. Nice. Flavour is awesome and quite balanced. Pines, flowers, herbs and spice. Loads of fruity and caramelnotes. Full bodied. Totally dry. Has a very heavy piney bitterness in the end, though its countered by a subtle sweetness making this an extraordinary experience and a worhty DIPA no. 50 in my book.

Ratman197 (10196) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2011
On tap at Bistro DIPA Fest poured a clear amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, pine, grapefruit and orange zestr. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, pine, grapefruit and light orange with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2007
Good yellowish head over clear red-ruby beer with an orange shine. Chocolate, cat’s pee (valerian), hops, cake. Rich cakey taste with lots of malts - oh, and some hops, BTW. A bit of liquorice (not sweet) and quite liqueurish. Quite thick, oily texture, super slick. Slight burning MF. Heavy duty hops. Balance is, again, quite allright. Nice.

BMan1113VR (7869) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 17, 2011
On tap at FO. Pours with a clear golden bronze body and a fluffy, off-white head. Aromas of candied orange, spicy, citrus and alcohol. Flavor is citrusy with a lot of orange, spicy and a bitter finish. Linger bready/biscuity malt profile. Spicy. Gets a bit hot (alcohol) and sweeter as it warms. Lively bubbles. A bit on the sweeter side of things for a west coast DIPA.

bb (6861) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 3, 2007
Draft. Rich ruby-amber beer with a whitish head. Citrus and some tropical fruit aroma. Citrus, tropical fruit flavor with some resin, malt and pine. Good hop flavor but not overly bitter. Hides alcohol well. Lingering citrus, resin and fruit.
