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).

Hazy orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, sweet citrus fruits, pine. Flavor is highly piney and resinous alongside sweeter, intensely fruity, sweeter characteristics. Moderately bitter finish is crisp, nicely balancing the sweet, with a bit of lingering booze. I am surprised that this is not more highly rated. Note: This bottle says 9.5% ABV as opposed to the 9 listed here, and "brewed and bottled by Mercury Brewing Company, Ipswich, MA for Kissmeyer Beer".

Hazy orange-copper coloured beer with an huge white head. Aroma of fruit, hops and some herbs and spicy note. Taste is malty with some citrus, fruit, loft of hops and a warm alcohol finish. Heavy palate.

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.

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...

[5211-20130412] Big bottle. Mild evergreen resin aroma. Slightly hazy, amber orange body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Bitter resin hops flavour has a lingering lemony aftertaste. Medium body is quite bitter. Very tasty, nice balance of hoppy bitterness. (8/4/9/4/16) 4.1

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

Murky Brown, Huge White Foamy Head, Lots Of Lacing. Moderate Dull Hop Aroma. Malty with Hop Bitter Finish. Medium Creamy Oily Body. Hides Alcohol Well. Seems to be a little old. Only God Knows how Old, since there is no date on the label. Wish I’ve tried a Fresh Bottle. Now just OK for Me. Pass it unless you know it is fresh...
