Yeast & bubblegum in the nose; arguably more bubblegum than Iíve experienced prior. Exciting on that alone. Golden orange in color with a solid, consistent, filmy head. Great flavor; one of the more earthy IPAs Iíve had, while also gently floral. I appreciate a balance that allows spice & bitterness to be maintained, as opposed to increased sweetness that often appears in imperials - and this with . Not to say there isnít evidence of honey - itís there, including that floral/lavender aroma & sensation that comes with it. For this reason, too, I enjoyed this beer immensely while cold. Overall, a very unique beer, even within an extreme and encompassing genre - Only at the brewery, snatch one quick!

12 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, Winter Solstice 2012 bottling. Pours fairly crystal clear golden orange color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lacing cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, orange zest, pineapple, mango, banana, clove, bubblegum, pepper, pine, honey, herbal, and floral hop earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of hop and yeast ester notes. Taste of tangerine, orange zest, pineapple, mango, banana, clove, bubblegum, pepper, honey, floral, and herbal earthiness. Light peppery spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, tropical fruit, banana, clove, bubblegum, pepper, honey, floral, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic balance and complexity of hop and yeast esters; with zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy, slick, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic Belgian DIPA! Great balance and complexity of hop and yeast ester flavors; and extremely smooth to sip on for 11.25%. An extremely enjoyable offering.

Beautifully zesty. Pours orange copper, not much head. Some lacing, medium carbonation. Medium consistency. Some citrus, floral hops. Tangy taste with sweetness and some sourness. Well-balanced with a great punch. Bottle from brewpub.

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2013
12oz bottle, huge thanks to umich03jm. Great piney nose. Mostly clear golden - orange color. Good thin off-white head. Good lace. Big body. Smooth texture, very smooth. Lighter carbonaton. More dry texture. Incredible piney hop aroma, and flavor. Big belgian yeast characteristic gives an interesting sort of vanilla flavor. Works well with the piney hop, which is fascinating. Very unique, never had anything like it. Itís also extremely drinkable for 11.25%. Dangerously. Alcohol warmth is there in the finish, but no bite, at all. Very smooth. Sweet taste otherwise, little bite if any at all. Awesome. With this being my 2nd ever Kuhnhenn brew, officially now ISO all other unrated.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle... This beer rocks!Ö Clear, light copper ale with a small, fleeting, white head. The aroma is straight-up armpit muskiness and cat piss earthiness accompanied by only a hint of caramel. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. Surprisingly sweet, but thereís a boatload of Simcoe hop flavor to go along with all the rich caramel and toffee malts. Finishes bittersweet - more sweet than bitter. World class brew Ė provided by biggsbowler!

Big thanks to my sister, ratebeerís 15_2_Kuhnhenn, for sending me this. The 12oz bottle pours with a clear copper body that supports a weak near white head. The aroma offers up sugar sweet Belgian yeast, ripe red apples, booze and sugar coated lime peel and then a bit more booze at the end of the draw. The taste starts smooth and sweet and then it moves into Belgian yeasty spicy notes and then a mix of red apples and raisins. To midway a sugary malt covered lime like citrus hop note comes to the surface. This is a nice sipper.

Sammy (8354) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013
Big orange citrus taste up front. Very good orange aroma. Cushioned mouthfeel. Yeast in the finish. Very good for style. Could also pass as a Belgian IPA. Dangerously drinkable at this alcohol level.Thanks for sharing Josh.

bottle. amber with minimal head. lightly sweet with bready malt body. not even a hint of booze. not as hoppy as youíd expect from a double IPA, but plenty of flavor.

tricyclist (657) - Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Half snifter pour of rich gold with a light white head. Nose is fairly simcoe hops with some sweetness of citrus notes. Flavors include moderate hop without being too bitter. Plenty of pine comes through with a little citrus, mostly grapefruit and lemon peel. As it opens, a spicy yeast is definitely present. Not a bad ale, but I may have wanted a little more bitterness.
