5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle:   Amberish, a little fiery, moderate sudsy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Powdery candyish like hopped up aroma.   Smells Danish.   Semi-sweet and dry powdery sweetness up front, muted hops, with a little pixie stix on the backside.   While not Danish, Netherlands seems close enough.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Not a real bright example, a bit candied and candyish at times with its pixie stix like powdery sweetness, its decent.   These type always come across as a homebrew example of a Double IPA.

Armadill0 (261) - FINLAND - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle. Foggy orange-brown. Light brown medium sized head. Aroma has piny hops as one would expect. Bit on the sweet side with some citrus. Taste is pretty well balanced. Bitter hoppy with a lingering piny aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden. Body could use some oomph in the middle. Still a very drinkable and pleasant DIPA.

Bottle from Malt & Vine. BB 12/2013. Lot A! So that means? Pours very hazy amber gold with a slight beige head. Aroma starts earthy, turns floral. Med + body. Flavor starts grape. Hints at dark grape. Goes floral. Somewhat roasted malt for backbone. Finishes lightly fruit sweet with a lot of hop and decent bitter. Very different. Very nice.

Case (217) - GERMANY - SEP 3, 2013
Pours orange with medium-sized white head. Sweet fruity aroma of caramel, pine and grapefruit. Wonderful bitter-sweet taste full of citrus fruit and hops that ends on a strong bitter note. Superbly quaffable DIPA, not too sweet, just how I like it. To be repeated.
