3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2014 Very citrusy aroma with a bready malt backbone. Light copper pour. Lemony citrus, orange rind flavor. Strong bitter in the back of the throat. Long finish Not bad but honestly way over-rated. Theres not much body or depth. Really One dimensional. Lacks the thick body and malt depth of a good IIPA. More of a high abv regular IPA. Great tasting beer regardless of specifics.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This version varies so much, sometimes even within a single sixer. Sometimes its a true IPA, others its almost got a Barleywine sweetness to it that you have to be ready for. Pours a dark golden orange with a huge floral/citrus nose at first... but sometimes the caramel/brown sugar sweetness completely takes over. This beer would rate much higher if it were more consistent. Still a very good beer that I would recommend to anyone.

Had this out of a bottle at fermentation lounge in Tallahassee. Great citrus hop aroma with very malty strong ale type flavor. Good beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle poured into a tulip glass. A nice copper color and a sudsy white head that leaves some creative lacing. Aroma is purely hops with a little citrus and a lot of pine and floral. Taste is very well balanced with malt keeping the massive amounts of hops from being bitter. Palate is perfect for a big IPA; heavy but not thick. Iím a huge fan! Too many IPAs now are just bitter assaults on my taste buds...like they have something to PROVE. This one has nothing to prove.

Big forthy head, leaves some lacing. Aroma is pine, floral and caramel.
Very malty taste, caramel, butterscotch. Also a lot of hoppy bitterness and fruityness. Pretty sweet.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from ÷lbutikken, Copenhagen, Denmark. Aroma has a lot of bread and caramel from the malt and just a hint of floral notes from the hops. Pours a dark amber, almost brown, with a thick white foam. Taste is medium sweet, a little sour and slightly bitter. The bottle I had was probably too old to be enjoyed properly though. Medium carbonation and a slight oily feel on the palate.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
My New Years beer.. opened 10 minutes to midnight, finished 30 minutes thereafter. Extremely over hopped, and not in a good way. Matches your Dogfish Head in the extreme hop category, but it was so overpowering that that the subtletry is gone. A little chewy malt, that if you let it sit on your mouth a while an let the hops wash over, you can get. Not thin on the tongue, bridging on chewy. Golden orange/yellow color when poured. Little fizzy, but since this is not a winter beer, it was not what I wanted after-all, Iíll re-visit this after the second bottle, but style-wise, as the D-IPA, it is at least representative.
