4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear deep amber liquid with medium to large, firm off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is really hoppy with notes of pine, citrus, caramel malt, biscuits, grapefruit and some tropical fruit. Taste is dry and high bitter with caramel and citrus. No metallic bitterness even though it’s very high. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice stuff, but a bit too malt driven for me. Could have used more aroma hops.

Dark yellow pour w/ frothy white head. Huge aromas of orange & pine- love it! Sticky lacing down the glass. Flavor is lots of hops! Bitter orange pith, more pine, even a hint of lime zest towards the end. Creamy, yet light mouthfeel. Finishes pretty dry & bitter. Good!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly cloudy, pale golden orange color with tangerine hues and a half finger frothy white head. Decent retention, slowly fading into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Resinous earthy aroma with grassy/soily pine notes countered by sweet fruit and pale malt. Hints of pine needle and grass followed by grapefruit and orange peel. Biscuity malt with graham cracker and sweet booze.
Medium bodied with a blast of dry resinous hops that provide a strong bitterness that lingers into a dry finish. Earthy pine needle and spruce followed mid palate by citrus/tropical fruit notes that prevent it from becoming one dimensional. Citrus rind, grapefruit and pineapple followed by biscuity malt and sweet booze. Thin and a bit watered down but easy to drink. Strong bitterness is nicely countered by sweeter notes but it’s a bit too thin and boozy for my liking.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2013 Extremt balanserad DIPA en av de bästa på marknaden... Lagom kolsyrad . Uppfriskande lättrducken där fruktighet både i doft å smak inte går överstyr. Ingen smak sticker ut utan helt perfekt..

Pour slightly dusty oramge, with a large n’ frothy off-white head.
Aroma of pine, apricot, slight caramel, grass, weeds. Quite a lot is going on here, which is nice;)
Taste is pretty darn bitter, with some sweet, caramelly notes to back up the bitterness. Long, bitter and dry aftertaste though. Medium body, with a semi-fizzy carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske: Meget typisk IIPA, der er rejst over atlanten. Orange øl med et let støvet humleduft. Meget bitter, men det er klart når humlen er falmet. Men stadig kan man smage at amerikanerne bare kan det der med IIPA. God øl.
