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 (473) - 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".

PapaVillum (659) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2015
650 ml, flaske, 9,5 % ABV, BB: ITAF, købt i Boxbeers.dk, 18. juli 2015. Ravfarvet og ufiltreret Imperial IPA med fin offwhite skumtop på ungefär 2 cm, som svinder til landskaber og et par mm tykkelse. Tydelig frugtrig aroma af abrikos, citrus og blomster. Frugtrig og sødlig indledning i munden. Smagsindtrykket bevæger sig dernæst ind i en mere ligelig balance med bitterhed og slutter bittert af. Yderst velsmagende, frisk og balanceret. Smagsopsummering: middel sødme, middel bitter, zero sur eller salt. God fyldig krop med frisk middel karbonering. Olieret konsistens. Afslutningen er bittersød, men slutter næsten bitterbesk. Dejlig frisk og frugtrig udgave af en dIPA, som har karakter samtidig med at være let drikkelig.

Acid303 (464) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - JUN 21, 2015
66cl bottle, served in Shaker. Pours dark orange with medium white/beige frothy head, very good appearence. The aroma is so intense: hops everywhere! the impact is so american. The taste is also very american despite the NZ hops...It reminds me specially those beers made with fresh hops. Citrus and tropical fruits worth to be mentioned as well. Dry lasting lovely finish. Medium/full body, perfect carbonation. Alcohol? what’s that? Sensational.

Tap@Taphouse, Copenhagen (30/04/2015) - amber pour with good sized persistent white head. Sweet topical fruity and malty aroma and taste, peach, grapefruit, splash of pine needles across the palate, some caramel, solid bitter finish. Lovely.

Reffs (2) - Roskilde, DENMARK - APR 28, 2015 does not count
Absolutely one of my favorites! It is unfiltered and have an allmost golden look, both appealing to the eye. Very fruity, loaded with hops but very balanced and have a descreet maltprofile. It is very complex in the most delightful way and really the definition of a high quality DIPA. This is a must for IPA heads!

Bottle at home. Clear amber orange with a white head. Taste, Malty, Malty, Malty, very little hops. 6 months till the expire date. Tasted more like a mild barley..

SlackerMads (2095) - DENMARK - APR 24, 2015
Bottle. Hazy orange with a small white head. Berries and light cheesy hops in the nose, some light spicy notes. Strange aroma, berry notes; gooseberries, elderflower, white cheese, soap, tigger (no idea what this is, wtf am I doing?). Medium body, very raw bitterness, light sweet, soft carbonation. Raw, messy, unpleasant. No date on the bottle, so I have no idea about how old it is.

hallinghansen (2390) - Odense S, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2015
Bottle. Unclear amber body with a medium offwhite head. Malt, caramel, light hops, light fruity. Bitter caramel aftertaste. Quite dissapointing.

Hazy orange, stable rocky light beige head. Sweet citrus aroma, grapefruit, pineapple, apricot, pine and honey. Similar flavour, thick and juicy with well balanced bitterness and malty sweetnees. Alcohol well hidden. Carb is low, mouthfeel is smooth. Really nice.

deyholla (8120) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle thanks to Brian! Pours a cloudy earthy orange with a grayish head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has earthy citrus and apple with some underlying grass and slightly sweet grain. Flavor has a bit more bitter citrus with a touch of tropical fruit and some light grains backing.
