Slightly hazy copper and orange coloured body with a rich, one centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of alcohol, pine, flowers, earth and quite a bit of perfume. Full-bodied; Rich resin flavour with pine, passionfruit, pineapple, flowers and grass, all with a very defined malt flavour and tons of sweetness from the fruit and all the unfinished sugars. Aftertaste shows more resin and pineapple flavours than anything else, but the alcohol comes heavy at the finish, very warming! Overall, a very nice beer for the style, and definitely a big beer - almost showing some Barley Wine Qualities, but the Imperial IPA aspects still hit hardest. I sampled this Green Flash-special twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 30-November-2014 for US$3,49 sampled at home in Washington on 05-February-2015 after just coming back from Southern California.

Wow, a hardcore DIPA ! Aroma is sweet tropical fruit, with malt and sweet alcohol notes. The taste is bitter , bitter pine, a great beer, if you are a hop head.

[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a deep golden-orange with a huge long-lasting frothy off-white head. Some lacing. Aroma of hops -- piney, hempy and resiny -- along with bready malt, alcohol and a bit of fruit. Flavour of piney hops, alcohol, some tropical fruit and a big bitter finish. Medium bodied. A bit too boozy, just pretty good.

Glass at Beer Revolution. Pours slight cloudy reddish copper with off white foamy head. Smell is malty with some citrus and musty wet grass. Was expecting more citrus. Taste is malty, honey, mildly bitter citrus. Not sure if the batch was good, but lots of malt. Not very IPA like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A real hop bomb. Plenty of burn. Extreme citrus, lemony acidic nose and taste. Orange amber body with very thin wispy head. Extremely bitter, but tasty, in small sips.

02.01.15 best by. Poured from a 12 oz into a tulip on 11.15.14. A: Ketchup. It’s very malty. It has some slight citrus. The hops should be fine according to the best by date. A: 1 1/2 finger head. Hazy orange body. T: Ketchup and a bitter, lip-puckering sting dominate. P: Who cares. O: This was not enjoyable on the first sip. It was not citrusy. I could not get the bitter ketchup taste out of my mouth. Yuck! This was a drain pour.

Grassy, spicy, floral aroma. Hops smell of both the citrus and pine variety. I can detect a moderately strong malt backbone to balance things out. The only drawback is that I thought the aroma would be stronger for 10.1 ABV. Very unique dark orange color bordering on Crimson. Sticky and clingy all white head. Tastes of honey sweetness at first, then the hops come in. They taste citrusy but not overwhelming. Hops last well into the aftertaste with the malt sweetness mixing with it all the way until the next sip. Has a slight booze burn. Not overly heavy. Surprisingly refreshing, would be a great summer beer. Palate is ideal for a DIPA. Just enough carbonation, slick and slightly oily. Overall fantastic. Almost as good as hop slam, way cheaper and easier to get. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pine element of the aroma is really prominent, with over-ripe fruits lurking behind. Malts come out in the flavour alongside orange and peach notes. Medium bodied and oily. Draak orange, small head. Alcohol is strong in the finish but not overpowering.

Benzai (9995) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle [from Secret Santa 2014 edition thanks to beerandblues2] @ home. Clear orange golden color, full sized white to off-white head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, hops, slightly sweetish floral. Taste malts, hops, resin and pine suddenly kick in which was what I was waiting for and it’s finished with good firm bitterness that absolutely suits the beer perfectly. Good firm bitter finish. Pretty good DIPA.
