Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2014
(Bottle) Hazy amber colour with lasting, frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit, passion-fruit, lychee, dried apricots and floral, slightly resiny hops. Malty, hoppy taste with citrus, grapefruit, passion-fruit, caramel, apricots and a generous citric, resiny bitterness. More than medium body, with a slight caramel sweetness. Generous hop character, backed up by solid malt foundation. Excellent double IPA. Very nice.

MisoW (1515) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle at home from rlgk, thank You very much! Pours deep amber color, white head. Aroma is very fruity - mango, papaya, orange, floral hops. Taste is great, nicely sweet, but bitter at the same time, papaya, mango, orange peel, tangerines and floral hops. Nice bittersweet, very fruity finish. Great beer.

jinroh (396) - ESTONIA - OCT 5, 2014
Nice clear amber, thin foam. Fruity and hoppy aroma, attractive. Taste has all these hops that nose was warning about - but they feel nicely balanced with the body and are not overwhelming at all. Fruity and surprisingly light for a double IPA of this strength. Good beer, great job with balancing - but maybe not too exciting.

shoulderbroken (2105) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle, thanks Raul. Aroma is spiky, resin hops. Good taste, spiky, quite light though. Sherbert. Easy drinking. Bit of fruit. Interesting, light but hop burn at the end.

TimE (3261) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 4, 2014
Deep white head. Very malty nose fairly leafy. The mouth is malty fairly boring, but not bad.

gunnfryd (10834) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2014

ninecats (180) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2014
Backlog. Pours clear copper reddish, one finger white-yellowish fluffy foam that dissipates quite fast leaving no lacings. Aroma is fruity, both sweetly tropical with pine, mango and apples, citrus and zest. Taste is nicely malt accented with lots of tropical fruits and a slight, but not overly aggressive, resinous tone. Medium bitter. Medium body, soft carbo. Solid.

fantti (712) - FINLAND - SEP 1, 2014
Pours as coppery-orange and little hazy, with one-finger head and a lot of lacing. Aroma has tropical fruits with sweeter citrus and little twigs. Very fresh and fruity DIPA. Taste has more of sweet biscuity notes and even a little nuts. Some wood and twigs are also present and flowery notes, but no fruitiness. Palate is medium sweet and the bitterness rises a bit by bit being very full at the end. Very nice palate. Well made DIPA, which has a lot of british style strong ale notes, especially in the taste. Aroma is more fruity and interesting.

daje (2556) - NORWAY - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. Dark golden body with a tiny yet lively white head. Aroma of strong caramel, grapefruit, a bit skunky. Taste is fresher and fruitier, grapefruit and apricot, some pine, light sweet caramel malt base, good subtle bitterness in tandem with the sweetness, leaving a nice fruity aftertaste and making this an easy beer to drink and enjoy.

jdb288 (534) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours amber with tall creamy white head. Lots of grassy notes in the aroma along with lavender, honey. Taste is malty right off the bat - lots of caramel, brown sugar. Hops don’t do much to balance here against the sweetness.
