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).

CanIHave4Beers (3399) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Pours a golden color with a big fluffy head that leaves good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is a balance of fruity hops, husky grain, honey, and some light herbal character.

The flavor is not as sweet as it smells, the beer is moderately bitter and has a very unique flavor for a Double IPA. There is some honey, some light alcohol notes, a good dosing of floral hops and about as much husky graininess. As it sits in the glass more citrusy hop and fruit rind come out.
Odd, and a little awkward... not bad mind you, just not something I would really seek out again.

Tmoney99 (11219) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This is a solid beer and exceeded my expectations.

Cybercat (3571) - Georgia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Robust, hoppy aroma has a fruity overtone, primarily apple, with a strong yeasty note. Pours a clear dark amber with a very thick and rather persistent fine-bubbled cream-white head. Hoppy flavor has fruity and subtle caramel and malty notes, quite but not fiercely bitter, a whisper of honey sweetness to balance the bitterness. Smooth texture has about average firmness and some decent fizz. Overall, pretty good if not the best.

b3shine (5966) - Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Bomber to snifter (thanks alexsdad06). Looks good; a foggy burnt-orange with off-white lacing. Smells of bitter hops and semi-sweet malt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid, not spectacular.

BMan1113VR (7880) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours with a hazy deeper golden hued body with a slightly off-white head. Soapy lace. Aromas are tea, caramel malt, mild esters and gooseberries, sweet, slightly faded, alcohol, grassy, mild citrus. Flavors are malty, sweet, light pine, a touch metallic and some minerals. Some grainy and grassy. Nice hop flavor per bitterness (which is relatively low), but overall it tastes faded (new to my market with no best by date). Overall too malty and heavy for my tastes in DIPA, but I could see this being better closer to the source. Medium carbonation, very full body for my tastes in DIPA.

marcus (6850) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle from City Beer. Pours cloudy orange amber with a thin beige head and a floral and fruity aroma. There is a carbonated caramel malt flavor that is a bit fruity with a fairly bitter finish.

Ughsmash (7203) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Bomber. Poured cloudy, sunset orange with a a yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up lots or orange meat and related sourness, with some exotic fruit and cereal malts on the second wave.. peach kernel and alcohol warmth after that.. lots of good character, but it only came together decently. The flavor found orange meat, biscuity malts, and peach at the core, with peach skins, orange zest, and grassy bitterness around.. picked up some black pepper along with the bitter citrus bouquet on the warm finish. Medium-bodied and grainy on the palate with low-ish carbonation.. seemed a touch more sour than bitter at times.. not perfectly constructed, but intriguing.

joeneugs (3552) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 14, 2012
22 oz. bottle. It pours a burnt orange color with a small orangy head. The aroma smells a bit aged with some toffee and almonds behind a super juicy hop profile of pineapple, peach and mango. The flavor is the same with more sweet, juicy hops that are unfortunately ruined by some papery oxidation and toffee. Bitter citrus finish. Would’ve been better fresh.
