sloth (2780) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Large lasting off white head with good retention and lacing.Hazy, orange colored brew. Soft nose of tangerines, spices, resin and a lil booze. Body is fully medium, oily with a soft carbonation, coating and pleasent. Big hop flavors, oranges, citrus with some orange nehi, lifesaver type shit goin on, very tasty. Malts are dry and laid back. Finish is dry, bitter and fruity, juicy. Nice fuckin brew! Props to 5K for the bomber! An easy quaffer for a 9%er. Thats the way i like it baby!

Flarra. Ljus lätt grumlig dryck som doftar mycket friskt av aprikos, tallbarr, grape. Smakar först grape sen mjukare persika sen tallbarr å grape igen. Fan så bra balanserad. Riktigt jävla jävla god fyllig West coast Dipa. Jättegod köp köp

MarcoDL (3788) - NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2016
Bottle at tasting. Golden pour. Aroma of caramel, malt and peach, not a good sign. Watery taste of caramel, malt and peach as well. Where are the hops? Where is the bitterness? This was a bummer.

Idiosynkrasie (6066) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2016
650ml bottle. Slightly hazy, yellow-ish golden colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting and lacing, off-white head. Piney, resinous and citrusy hoppy aroma, notes of grapefruit, orange, lemon, some pineapple, additional fruity hints of yellow stone fruit. Taste is dry, bitter hoppy, resinous, piney, citrusy, notes of grapefruit, orange, lemon, hints of pineapple, some mirabelle, nectarine and peach, a floral touch, staunch pale and caramel malty basis adds humble sweetness. Very well balanced, stable malty basis withstands the hop bitterness without being too sweet an interference. Excellent.

JorisPPattyn (9242) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2016
Medium, lightly yellowish head over finely carbonated clear orange-golden beer; shards of lace. Intense grapey nose, grapefruit, orangepeel, bitter & fresh aromatic vegeatbles. Intense bitterish, flowery and of course fruity hopflavour; citrus, citruspeel, unripe stonefruit (nectarine, peach,...) unripe banana, lunaria, lupulin². Severe, but excellent. Astringency from the hopoils, quite creamy feel too, medium bodied, good carbonation. Prime example of a top Westcoast IIPA. Great to be able to find this in the Lowlands....

Light haze on this gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light, mildly dry and has good fine carbonation. Very light malt base with a nicely judged light creamy sweetness. Hops bring a lovely nectarine and orange start. Fair dose of hop spice ensues with sweetish pine and a generic tropical fruit burst. Peach and mango resolve. Mildly sweet floralness before a light and hop spicy finish. This is my kind of DIPA. Light malt base, showcasing the fruity hop characteristics. And a nice way to raise a glass to the great man - Lemmy Kilmister. Super duper.
