4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
1 Pint 6 oz. Bottle. Pours golden/bronze, thick frothy head, which last relatively long. Aroma is hoppy with light citrus flavors, which is surprising for this beer. Thought it would have a more complex aroma. Taste is however on the spot. IBU are very high, seems higher than 100 and the alcohol content is noticeable but welcoming. The Palate is a blaze with life, carbonation is lively. Overall: Excellent Beer, a true craft beer champion.

Flaske: Gul klar øl med et flot kridhvidt skumhoved. Duften er velhumlet med vægt på citrus og let kattepis. Smagen sidder i skabet. I det hele taget en yderst velkomponeret øl.

Nicely balanced hoppy overtones with a citrusy hints with just the right hints of bitterness on the backend.

Pours gold with large white head and lots of lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and citrus hops. Taste is the same with a large malty backbone. Very nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Botled on 1/30-13. Pours golden with little head. Aroma is packed with fresh hops - melon, grapefruit, orange zest, even at more than three months it still smells really fresh. A very balanced malt note, straw and cereal-like, matching the pungent hop profile perfectly. The taste is amazing as well. Pungent hops all the way through, resting on a perfect and very simple malt foundation that has just enough body and crispiness to stand up to the assertive hop profile. The 9,5% don’t show at all, and it is dangerously drinkable for the abv. This is an ideal double ipa for me - crisp and clean, although still pronounced malt profile, and a bright and citrusy hop profile. Excellent!

12oz bottle to tulip. Pours a golden amber color. Nose is pine, citrus, hops. Flavor is hops, resin, citrus/grapefruit/orange with malt. Reminds me a lot of Pliny the Elder - balanced and delicious.

Great double IPA. Very crisp. Decent lacing. Not overpoweringly hoppy. Seems like a nice change of pace from the knock you over with a blast of hops beers so prevalent today. Big taste. Great with pizza!
