Rune (8006) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2013
Taster poured from a big bottle. Thanks to fonefan at the ratebeer meetingpoint, ØK 13. Hazy, orange-gold body. Smell of apricot and pumpkin. Likewise, the taste profile is made up by sweet fruits, dusty hops and mid-sweet malts. More sweet than bitter to the finish. Smooth and well bodied, mostly hidden alcohol. A decent one, without being too impressive (Copenhagen, 24.05.2013).

Bov (9467) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 4, 2013
sample from bottle, courtesy of fonefan - cloudy orange beer with a moderate foam left; pretty flowery hoppiness; full-bodied, some sweetness below soon overwhelemd by a solid bitterness; dry, very long hoppiness (citrus and apricot)

saxo (14036) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2013
Sample @ DØE (unofficial). Nice head with good duration. Color is golden/amber. Aroma and taste are rich hops, flowers, little caramel, malt and citrus.

Sigmund (5089) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
Sample from bottle (unknown donator). Cloudy golden to orange colour, moderate white head. Sweetish aroma of orange marmalade and crystal malts, not as "fresh" as I hoped for. Hoppy flavour, medium sweet, not extreme for a double IPA, lacks freshness.

5000 (6265) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle: &nsp Fiery amber, moderate off-white head, foamy, fairly nice lacing.   Big citrusy aroma, hoppy as well.   Smells very fresh and vibrant!   A bit candied as well.   Lots of citrus notes up front, certainly hoppy but this one isn’t overly bitter.   Has a nice enough malt base to counteract the bitterness.   This one is really citrusy, semi-sweet, some candied citrus peel and pith.   Very smooth.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not a real floral over the top IIPA, nor overly bitter example, but what it does is provides a lot of flavor without being too bitter.   Very easy to drink, and one I would reach for often given the chance.   Thanks Austin for the bottle!

Had at Josh Goode’s bachelor party. Decent amount of bitterness, pine, a bit sweet. Late in the night so don’t have the best notes.

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Was not a big fan of this one, it was overly resinous and unbalanced. Tasted sticky, not at all refreshing, and the pine was overly prominent.

sudsmeister (64) - Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2013
22 ounce bomber for $7.49 at North Park in Westminster. "Seven Seas" title is gone, but rest of label looks the same. The ingredients and alcohol level match, so I will assume this is the same beer. I popped the cap with the bottle at about 50 degrees. It poured a translucent honey hue with a dense white head which was slow to dissipate. The nose was enticing. Taste revealed one of the best balanced IPAs I have tried. Chewy on the palate and with a lingering bitter finish. The 9 percent alcohol is well hidden. This beer is excellent!

cthomas2390 (219) - Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Pours a hazy straw with little head. Great aroma: earthy, dank, citrus qualities combine to form a beautiful tropical fruit aroma. Perfectly balanced and you would never guess that this is a 9% beer. Dry, crisp finish with no lingering bitter or cloyingly sweet notes that often accompany double IPAs. This one’s a keeper.
