Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with a medium white head. Good lacing. Aroma of citrus and pine, with a little caramel to it. Flavor is citrus with a strong bitter finish. A pretty good double IPA, but nothing I need to go out of my way to get.

Looks like most ipa’s. Heavy ipa taste at first followed by a remarkably neat finish. went well with parmesan cracker bread.

Had this one bottled in Chicago Heights, Illinois. Wow. This was crazy good. Clear, light orange pour with all kind of things happening in the nose. As one might expect from a IIPA it was very heavy on piney, floral and citrusy hops, which carried neatly into the flavor, dominated by grapefruit, rose and black tea. Finished strong and clean. Wow. An almost perfect beer.

Bottled. Thanks Marsiblursi.
Clear amber colour. Black currant, berry jam and tea are all very prominent in flavour. Jam-like flavour profile(no, not Zinfandel Wine) with tea here as well and a good bitter finish. Every thing about this beer is of a plain IPA. Aroma hops, flavouring hops and bitterness. 7, 5 would always be on the edge as I see it. Very much house character, with the tea.

Bottle. Nose is fruity hops, citrus but also some peach and a touch of pine. Clear orange beer with a minimal white head. Strong fullbodied palate carrying an initial bitterness that settles nicely into an aftertaste of grapefruit.

(Bottle) Pours amber. Friuty aroma with oranges and apricots. Hops also brings black tea,light pine and something floral. A bit sweet. Hints of crushed tomatoes. Fruity and medium hoppy flavour with black tea, oranges, apricots and some toffee. Light spicy. Medium bitter. A bit to thin mouthfeel and body. Also a bit to sweet. Ok IPA, bad DIPA.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2007 Flaske: Flot karakterisk farve for en IPA, god duft af humle og citrus. Smagen var ikke så overvældende som jeg havde regnet med. Nok fordi den ikke var helt frisk hvilket gjorde den mere balanceret i min mening. God bitterhed på tungen
