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).

crossovert (9063) - Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2013
A "nordic" beer that is actually reasonably priced. And its fresh and brewed in the US. Smells like orange gatorade and cleaning products. Flavor is medium bitter, vegetal, lemongrass, melon. A wacky brew, one of the hops is a dead ringer for cleaning fluid.

CanIHave4Beers (3556) - 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 (11804) - 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.
