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).

crackedmachine (470) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2012
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".

# 3504 ersma: stellt sich die frage, warum eine dänische brauerei ein bier in usa braut (ipswich brewery) und dann stockholm syndrom nennt. dunkel bernsteinfarben mit orange-stich. recht viel stabiler schaum. leicht trübe und recht perlig. der geruch ist süßlich-fruchtig, mit aromen von mango, papaya und überreifer birne. auch etwas tannennadel findet sich. der antrunk ist  recht bitter, bringt aber auch hier das erschnupperte mit, dazu grapefruit. die mitte ist bitter-herb, hier überwiegen tannennadel und nasses heu. zum abgang wird es etwas lieblicher, mit malzig-süßen aromen, fruchtigen tönen und einer leichten spritigkeit, die aber nicht weiter stört. 100 ibu? die verstecken sich hinter all den aromen aber echt gut. die flasche ist ansehnlich. fazit: sehr aromatisch und rund, probierenswert. 13,12,11,12,11,12 - 11,90

Madsen1635 (246) - 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 (2397) - 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
