smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Bottle - a huge Cascade nose. Unbalanced, just like I like it. Maybe a touch of hot malt in the aroma as well. An attractive amber body with a beige head that was gone rather quickly - possibly due to a less than aggressive pour. The first sip seemed to be more balanced than the aroma indicated. That changes rapidly. Straight forward and rather one dimensional. Honestly, I was surprised to see this rated as high as it is.

Pours copper with a big foamy head. The aroma is a sticky caramel aroma, I love that in real strong IPA’s like RuinTEN. This has a very sweet maltness to it with a nice bitter finish. It’s not as good as ruinTEN but it’s a nice substitute.

danlo (2133) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2015
1 pint 6fl oz bottle from Brewdog online store. Pours a deep orange-brown amber colour with a reddish tinge and foamy off-white head leaving lacing. Aroma of caramel, mango, floral citrus & pine hoppy. Taste is malt caramel, sweetish, fruity, mango, citrus grapefruit, woody pine and resiny hop bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry lingering earthy bitter finish. Very drinkable.

emusche (144) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Pours deep copper, almost red. Thick, creamy off-white head. Big, hoppy nose along with grapefruit, caramel malt and loads of resin. Taste is piney hops, cut some by the maltiness, but finishes overly dry. Mouthfeel is scorched-earth dry; super-bitter, with lingering heat from the alcohol. It’s not bad, but 22 oz of this will be tough to put away.

Vestergaard (1385) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle, 66cl. This i recall as one of my best IIPA experiences before rating. One month old, this one. Pours a dark, reddish, clear amber with a medium sized, off white head. Really a handsome IIPA! Aroma has lots of caramel malts, toasted malts, in general a very powerfull but still nice malt profile. Lots of hops, slight pine and slight earth. Taste has a big caramel sweetness, some almost roasted bitter toast and a hoppy, bitter finish. Not very fruity, but still really good. Pretty sticky body and a fairly low carbonation. Didn’t live up to my memory, but maybe would have done better completely fresh. Then again - good one!

Bottle. Hazy dark reddish pour with tan head. Aroma has brown sugar, burnt malt and feels strong. Taste has a lot of sweetness and this seems to take the focus almost completely off the hops. Lots of caramel. Very sweet
