2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew and Meilby. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange body with a small white head. Nose is syrup, harsh fat, hints of malty extract-like notes and raisins. Taste is nutty syrupy tones with hints of grass and...not much else, apparently. Medium body, soft carbonation. This might have suffered from trans-Atlantic transport, but I think it’s just...weird.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Gently hazed with a deep golden hue and a large, frothy white cap. Aroma is hop-forward -- grapefruit and lemon, a little grass, some cattiness. The flavor kicks off with these bright hop notes, landing on the tongue with heavy bitterness. A hint of honeyed malt is the only sugar balancing this alpha acid onslaught, and ethanol strikes at the finish. Soft, whipped medium-light body; mild fizzy CO2. Not a terribly complex double IPA, but if you’re looking to smash your tongue with bitterness, look no further.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a light caramel color with a floral and sweetness to the aroma. Flavor is sweet caramel, good amount of hops, citrus and floral. A decent IPA, lighter than expected for an Imperial. Decent bitter floral aftertaste.

Taste: very bitter, hoppy, resinous, citrus, bit metallic, pineapple. Aftertaste: hoppy, resinous, some alcohol, pineapple, bit sourish, very bitter, caramel malts. Don’t understand how this can score so low?

Thanks to sebletitje! 355 ml. can split by 4. Hazy orange, small white head. Nose is bitter orange, pine resin rather malty with some marmalade. Taste is milky yeast, bread, bitter pine resin, some sugary sweetness, marmalade, bitter dry finish with chewy malt body & a bit too much yeast. Quite nice & decent. A bit surprised by the very low score on here. Nothing special but quite satisfactory all the same.

Can. Aroma is alright, fruity. Light tropical and citrus, bit grassy. Taste is less exciting, not much flavour, pine, not much else. Alright though.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden, bit of foam. Aroma nicely fruity, clean and dry. Bit of booze coming through. Taste is intensely bitter and hoppy but doesn’t really feel balanced. Bitter but a bit messy. Long bitter aftertaste. Overall not bad, amazing nose but the unbalanced taste was a bit of a letdown for me.

Thanks to ShoulderBroken for sharing the bottle.
Poured into a taster showing deep gold, highly filtered, and no head.
The nose shows sharp clean pine mixed with cannabis.
The palate is thin bodied and fully carbonated. Alot of pine resin and extremely hop forward but a light sharp IPA bitterness at the finish. The intensity of the hops and flavors are out of this world. Albeit one dimension as to the flavor (pine) and really lacking any tropical fruit flavor, etc., the intensity really makes it fun.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light golden color. Sharp grassy nose with some citrus notes, a bit harsh. The mouth is light for the abv but very simplistic. Alcohol burn at the end. Very simplistic.
