dEnk (3456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2011
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.

Marsiblursi (2983) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2011
(Bottle) Pours hazy orange golden with a white head. The aroma is fantastic with tropical tones of passion fruit and lychee up front. Undertones of wild strawberries, sweet pink grapefruit, black currant tea, pineapples, peach, vanilla and mild new cut grass. Perfect, subtle, pale and tasted malt character. The flavour is light sweet to dry, medium to heavily bitter and light acidic. Tropical, citric, grassy, light resinous and pale, toasted malty. The mouthfeel clean and round with light to medium carbonation. Lingering biterness. Citric, grassy and tropical finish. Near Medium bodied.

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.

_angst_ (2352) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2011
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!

JorisPPattyn (7715) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2011
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...

yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2011
On tap at Ølfestival 2011. An unclear, golden beer with a small, off-white head. Lots of oranges and peaches on the nose, pine cones, some grass and citrus peel too. Not much room left for the maltyness. Some sweetness in the flavor, but just as a backdrop for the bitterness from the hops. Citrus peel, lots of peaches, and pinecones. Full-bodied, almost sticky on the palate. Bitter, fruity and sweet finish. Overall, too sweetish, but really tasteful. 110526

33cl, new exclusive Danish collab. Anno 2011, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex bitter brew, very bitter and fruity, yet balanced, hazy, good head, very good brew, yet expensive!
