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.

Madsen1635 (220) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle. Hazy dark amber pour with tan head. Intense and heavy aroma with lots of malt and sweetness. Taste again has quite a lot of instant sweetness. The high ABV is not felt.

Holmen1 (2315) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2014
Gjennomgang av gamle notater: her merket jeg meg en stor og intens aroma og smak av humler som iflg bryggeren selv var fra USA og NZ. Ble servert fra fat, og hvis jeg kommer over denne på flaske MÅ jeg kjøpe for å gjenoppleve inntrykket.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAR 23, 2014
22oz bottle - Pours a darkish orange-amber in color with a small off-white head that left some decent lacing. Aroma is fairly heavy of pine resin, but some fruitiness present as well. Flavor is of pine resin hops and some mild stone fruit. Lingering medium bitter finish...

Sweet and hop-ish smell and taste. It has a good bitterness. Quite high alcohol vol, which is reflected in the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
