Very tasty brew. Smells of fresh citrus, pour s clear golden with a foamy white head. Tastes like it smells, fruit and bitterness hold through finish. Very good double IPA!

The beer all other DIPA's should be modelled on. It ticks all the boxes and even at 8+% abv it drïnks like a session beer. Dangerous/delicious.

At a private tasting in Serbia with markoijelena and luttonm. "Pour it" pale golden a bit hazy with a white decent foamy head. Nose is mix of citrus notes, very fresh grapefruit. Amazing. Mouth: great but a bit disappointing compared to the nose. It mirrors the mouth. A good beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Apperance: Nice golden color, with a white head.
Aroma: Full of tropical fruits like mango and pineapple. And of course lots of citrus. Very nice..
Taste: More fruity notes, and pine, malt in a good combination.
Palate: Medium-full bodied beer. Not much to complain about….
Overall: This is a killer of an DIPA. To date the best I tasted so far. Lots of citrus and tropical fruits that are fighting the nice hop flavors.

Aroma hits you in the face like a bitch slap and there’s not that much to tell besides the obvious - hops! The initial taste makes your taste buds cringe a bit, but you feel sorry for the poor malt base that is trying to stay alive under there. After a while it shifts to an unexpected sweetness and is not that bitter that one might suspect. If you get your hands on a fresh one, get it and if you get your hands on an older one, get that one also!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light golden yellow and orange body, fairly transparent, fizzy off white head. Very sweet citrus aroma. Taste is mildly bitter, but well balanced as double IPAs often are. Probably not the freshest bottle, since it had dust on it but I couldn’t find the bottling date. Not a bitter bomb, but even at this age (whatever age that is), this tastes very nice.

Bottle is an unexpected and great gift from an ex! Clear amber color, moderate head, good lace/retention. Aroma is pacific rim hops (tropical fruit, mango, passion fruit) with some grapefruit. Medium bodied, high bitterness, some caramel to balance it. Yeah, I could drink more of this.

Nose was too much smelt like a fragrant thai curry, not too keen on the filtered apperance. Taste and palate both amazing vibrant and powerful and flavoursome.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Store got it last week but since it’s shipped from New Zealand it’s probably a month old? Clear, bright golden-orange color with a very small head that fades to a thin film. Fairly dank aroma packed with mangos, limes, pineapple, peaches, and flowers. Tastes dank and dry. Almost no sweetness and a fairly strong bitterness. Tropical fruit and peaches mostly with a hint of white wine. Medium body. Very little carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Overall, really nice aroma but could use more carbonation and a little sweetness to counter the strong bitterness.
