3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 9-21-2009 (Bottle - Batch 150 Brewed: 05.04.08 Best Bef: 05.04.11) This beer forms a small beige head that quickly dissipated, hazy orange golden body, visible carbonation, and virtually no lacing. The Aroma is wheat malt, spicy, and floral hops. The Taste is sweet, fruity, spicy, and floral hops. This beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer is not very hoppy for the style and something is just off with the taste of this beer. The flavors just do not mesh together at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at mane liquor. Pours a golden murky/hazy pour with a white head. Stone fruit and peach heavy on the nose. Biscuit malt and booze also prominent on the nose. Taste is very fucking chewy. Loads of bitter malt, biscuit and stone fruit. Over a year old, this drop holds up well. The booze is pretty well hidden too

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a bottle. First impressions that it pours very cloudy, lots of sediment. Great appearance. Frothy head, off white. Aroma was nothing to write home about. Mouth feel was top notch, very very drinkable in a lot of ways. Less powerful than I imagined in that it was mild and not boozy given that it is marked at 9.0 percent. I think I went into this beer expecting something different than it was, but was happy with what it is nonetheless.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2013 Bottle 500ml @ home from Vinmonopolet. Looks like an IPA/DIPA should, hazy golden orange with medium head. Aroma is nice, sweet and hoppy, with fruits. Taste is very nice! I get fruity flavors with lots of hops. If no one had told me, I would have guessed that it was a slightly bitter IPA I was drinking. Speaking of bitterness, it actually presents itself in the aftertaste, in a good way off course. No doubt, Haandbryggeriet has done it again, delivering a quality DIPA!

Poured from a bottle at quenchers in Chicago. Why the hell the first rating. Wrong beer?? Bottle says double dram! Sweet plum and prune flavors. Mild hops. Dark cloudy pour. Don't love it but not bad
