Bottle at SBWF 2011. It poured a hazy yellow liquid with a medium sized small white head. Tropical fruity hoppy taste and smell with some grassy notes. Intense bitterness that reminded me of Stone Ruination, but not quite as rough. Very nice!

Aroma is huge hoppy, earthy, fruity spicy, slight touch of malt. Flavour is deep hoppy fruityness, quite dry, long lingering bitterness. Strong but fitting carbonation. I like big fruity hops.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012
33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Nordic, 9,2% on the bottle, BBE 29.06.2012?,
Aroma is rather hoppy with exotic fruits and some vanilla. Flavour is really hoppy and slightly sweet with lots of fruitiness. Very good and not too sweet as American style DIPAs usually are.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2012 Draught @ The Red Lion on September 21. A freshly brewed batch according to the staff. Pours hazy yellow with a medium rather thick white head. Smell is grass, pine, resin and tropical fruit. Taste is full of grapefruit, apricot, pineapple and lemon zest. Palate is thick and very bitter and fresh from the hops. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with a nice bitterness to it. A great beer!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fluffy, dirty-yellowish head over fully hazy orangey-yellow beer. Very grapey (muscatgrapes) hops, passion fruit & grapefruit. Fruity as few, stupendously aromatic. Very bitter immediate impression, but then turning mildly bitter with fruity/near sweetish overtones, especially in the finish. Impressive balance. Spritzy, refreshing, slight astringency backthroat. Medium bodied and very slick. Excellent IIPA. Love it, even if it’s even more unidimensional than most. But so fruity...
