COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Her er den ene halvdel af en ‘Black and Tan’ øl. Ikke hvilken som helst Black and Tan, men den hvor en opblæst, tyktflydende stodder og en tilbagelænet, humlet fyr mødes, og perfekt øl-balance opstår. Bland Yang med Yin, eller nyd denne flabede gode Imperial IPA solo.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2011
(Bottled, rated 2011-08-19) Quite clear, reddish brown color with a small, firm head. Quite pleasantly, even exotically fruity - but some stuffiness and alcohol, too. Sweetish-caramely maltiness in the flavor, with warming alcohol, dried fruit, woody and ecotic-fruity hops. Quite warming palate with low CO2. A quite decent DIPA (especially for a European one), with well hidden alcohol.

stouby (3700) - Holbæk, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear dark amber with a white head, ok lacings. Aroma heavy malty (caramel) and hoppy (citrusy, pine). Flavor moderate+ sweet and bitter. Almost full body with the alcohol well hidden.

Shag (2585) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 8, 2011
This poured a copper color with a white head. The aroma contain some citrus with unsual stuff like pineapple showing through. The flavor is very malty and sweet for a IIPA with a vanilla and citrus presence. We did not have the Ying to mix with but oh well. Overall this was ok but not really my speed when it comes to IIPAs.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2011
330ml Bottle: Aroma of malt, grapefruit, slight toasted caramel, and citrus. Poured deep amber in color with a small, off-white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet and medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of malt, toasted caramel, hops, pine, resin, light wood, and citrus fruits. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average to slightly lively carbonation. Medium to heavily bitter, light to medium sweet, hop, resin, malt, slight caramel, light wood finish is medium dry. 10%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

CamdenD (1077) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 6, 2011
Very nice, pretty, IIPA. Hoppy nose with pleasantly balanced bitter taste. Hops are understated yet strong. Not cloying at all, however a bit unexciting for the style.

Butters (3736) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Sampled side by side with the Yin, and I preferred this one. loved the pineapple hop nose and sweetness, but I REALLY liked the two beers blended together more than either beer separately. There was a good bit of alcohol on this beer, but the hop character and sweetness made for a nice balance.

Leighton (10538) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2011
Bottle at home in London. Pours a cloudy, ruby-orange with a medium, off-white head. Caramel, ripe fruits, hints of booze on the nose. Flavor is very sweet, lots of toasty bread, caramel and toffee. There is also a lot of bitterness, ripe citrus, grapefruit, earth, light wood, melon, pine. Full bodied with average carbonation and an oily texture. Very warm finish with lots of oily, resinous hops, plenty of sugars, notes of caramel, toasted malts, some candy and toffee, old grass and mild earth. The warmth really lingers with this sucker. Awesome beer overall.

Kinz (3257) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Deep orange, slight haze, nice head. Aroma is pleasant, mostly pineapple upside down cake. Flavor is hop oriented, huge load of pineapple over a caramel accented body. There is a certain richness here you don’t typically find in American IIPA’s, perhaps the use of a different yeast strain? Some yeast esters present that give this a nice round note as opposed to brashness. Bitter, but not biting. This is definitely a big beer, alchohol present, but not hot. Enjoyed this one. Will put notes concerning the black and tan version in with the Yin notes. Neat concept, good way to suck me into buying two bottles.

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 29, 2011
I bought this not realizing that I was also supposed to buy "Yin" and make a black & tan with ’em. So this was messed up from the get-go. Anyway, very dry, oaky and woody. maybe a little bit of a medcinal note. I like it, even without its yin...
