Pours a stunning amber/copper color. It has excellent lacing and the smallest bit of head retention. Tastes sweet and a bit of alcohol. Drinks very easy and doesn’t finish too hoppy, which is rare for a DIPA. A memorable beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 14C). Bottle 35 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: intense and nice hop aroma with mild notes of grapefruit with a pine and resinous character. sweet malty background provides a good support. APPEARANCE: gold ambar color and slightly hazy. medium ivory head with good retention. TASTE: balanced malty sweet flavour, with hop notes (grapefruit, pine, resin). high bitterness that lingers well beyond a semi-dry finish. PALATE: medium body with moderate carbonation. no astringency. mild alcohol warming. OVERALL: a very good example of an Imperial IPA. Recommended.

Bottle. Pours a translucent, dull orange with soapy white head. Aroma is grass, hay, caramel, and some resinous hops. Taste is lightly sweet, quite bitter. Hides the alcohol well. This is and will continue to be a staple beer I keep going back to.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours clear amber, two finger off white head. decent lacing with some retention. Aroma of pine and herbs. Taste is on the sweet side balanced with earthy bitterness. Full bodied, lively carbonation, sticky mouth feel. Finishes bitter sweet with tasting notes of grass, herbs, pine, cantaloupe, caramel and alcohol. Not as good as expected but not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy amber with a frothy average white head. Earthy aroma heavy on the hops with some citrus. Flavour wasn’t as hoppy as I expected -- bitter, spicy and a bit malty. I found I could taste the alcohol a bit too much. May have been served a little too warm.

Flaske fra systembolaget. Noe uklar gylden farge. Moderat karbonert med hvit skumtopp. Smaker grapefrukt, noe furunål, noe karamell. Merker lite til alkoholen. Ganske god

When first poured and tasted a strong bitter hop flavor is overwhelmingly present. After it has warmed for a bit a more balanced sweet melon and hop flavor is present.
