Bärnstensfärgad med mellanstort ljust skum! Massor med humle lite malt i doft och smak! Ganska besk! Mycket bra öl!

Draft to taster. Looks good; a semi-transparent deep orange with thin foamy off-white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells solid; hoppy with a fairly big pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer.

7-27-13 via Kevin by tap in New York pub. This is a good beer. Likely reminiscent of Mirror Pond IPA but not as good

On tap at Bricks. Pours orange with a tight khaki head that fades to a wispy film and collar. Aroma has resinous pine some herbal nots and malt. Taste is bitter earthy pine hops caramel malt and a very calm warming finish. Palate is medium slightly gritty and dry.

Big bitter bite yet somehow very easy-drinking. Really well-balanced between the malt and hops. Almost comes out with a smokey flavor more than a hoppy one. Love this.

After all these years I finally find this on tap and in South Dakota of all places, and what do you know it appears to be fresh. Pours clear dark orange with a white head and nice lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, tropical fruit, pine, and resiny hops. Flavors of grapefruit, loads of pine but in a good way, little bit of orange and pineapple, firm hop punch of bitterness, and nice little malt backbone to keep her honest. Loads of tongue buckling bitterness in the finish. This is a great DIPA. I thought this was going to be an old school malt bomb, but I am impressed. I remember this being in sixers, or maybe it was 4 packs, for $18 back when I first started getting into craft beer and thinking who would spend that much on beer. To think I found it for $6 a pint is a bargain by today’s standards. To look back and think what I thought was unreasonable then in regards to prices is unbelievable. Getting a little waxing poetic now.

On tap at fuzzy taco McKinney. Pours a nice copper color with a thin white head. The aromas are grapefruit, pine, citrus. The mouthfeel is dry bitter and had a medium body with good carbonation. This is a great beer. Cheers!

2007 vintage. Bottle pour murky copper. Nose syrupy malt, old hop, and vegetal. Taste syrupy malt, alcohol, biscuit, and alcohol in the finish. I’m sure this was better fresh.

Quite nice - draft at Harry’s in IAD airport. Amber on color,
Nice white head with lots of white lacing. Nice nose,
Lots of hops and flavor. A touch sweet, then a nice bitter finish.
