COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: Heavily hopped with 50 % US and 50 % NZ hops, for a dry, clean and intensely fruity DIPA. The explosion of citrus, passion fruit, peach and apricot flavors wraps the intense hop bitternes in a highly seductive way. Think ’This is my idea of the ideal fruit bowl!’

(21.0 % P, 9.0 % ABV (first batch at Sigtuna), 100 IBU, Colour ~ 15 - 20 EBC).

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2013
22oz bottle: Pours a mostly clear deep copper bronze with a spotty-lacing froth of white head. Has a sweet toasted caramel malty nose with some herbal grassy hop notes and a touch of honey. Starts with pretty good fullness and chewy malty sweetness with plenty of hop bitter bite and some floral notes with light oxidation. I just picked up the bottle and there’s no date, but it seems a little stale to me. Otherwise, it could be better if fresher.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 4, 2013
courtesy of Antonio Rey - pretty clear dark orange beer with a poor head retention; aroma of cream and almonds, hints of peach and pineapple below; full-bodied, very assertive and solid bitterness; dry and long flowery hoppy finish; the fruits stay in the background now

nealm759 (31) - Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Not a very strong nose just little sweet malt hints, poured amber or dark straw white frothy head with good lacing and retention. First so is very malty front with lingering hop bitter finish. Not very specific hop flavors stand out. A little citrusy and a bit chewy. Overall a pretty mehh dipa.

5000 (6023) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle:   Dark straw, dirty in color, thin frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Sweaty hoppy aroma, a little dank and musty.   Has a sweet aspect to it that is like Pez or Pixie Stix.   Pretty familiar with this with a lot of Danish IPA or IIPA examples.   Rather earthy on the tongue, soft sweetness, a little candyish, not all that bitter.   Seems very artificial on the tongue, soft bitterness, slight rind/pith, but with that fake Pixie Stix, or Pex like candy sweetness... it kills it.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   How does it finish?   At this point, who gives a sh*t.   Brewed in the USA.   Odd, thought we would have known better by now.   You can do better Ipswich!
