This is one that I NEVER thought I would have seen without a trip to PDX... Instead it was enjoyed 4-5 times tonight at the 10 Barrel IPA fight/fest. Pours a light orangish with a tight white head. This is one of the most hop forward beers I have ever had and still is a "bit" balanced... tons of tropical fruits and huge citrus zest... tangerine/red grapefruit.... and hints of pine on the finish. Lighter than should be body... carbonation is nice. For 9+% this is a teddy bear... drinkability is off the charts... super beer for sure.

22 oz bomber served in a tulip glass. Pours dark orangish copper with thick creamy head that retains well. Aroma is sweet juicy caramel malt with floral, leafy, hops on the back. Light notes of citrus and pine. Taste is big, lightly roasty caramel malt - sweetness is surprisingly restrained. Nice fresh hop flavors - floral citrus, pine, and vegetal notes. Fairly dry on the finish. Would love to taste this next to Green Mammoth, via my notes they seem quite similar. Hop notes are a bit richer here, so it comes out slightly ahead.

Bottle from unknown via Jordan. Pours a cloudy medium orange, slightly cloudy. Aroma citrus, resin, sharp. Not essentially my style, but very well done.

Bottle (22 oz). From kbudd19, thanks! Hazy caramel/orange with a huge mostly lasting off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is quite hoppy with tropical fruits, fruits, resinous notes, caramel and light alcohol. Taste is slightly sweet and very fruity with tropical fruits, caramel, light alcohol and moderate bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Slightly dry. Lingering fruity aftertaste. Good DIPA. Quite on the fruity side. Alcohol is well hidden. Decent drinkability. Worth a try!

Bottle @ Scooper Tasting in Ulfborg. Pours cloudy orange with airy off-white head. I tense, hoppy aroma, with sweetish, fruity notes. Intense, bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of fruit and malt. Warming alcohol presence. Sweetish aftertaste with regular, bitter notes of hops. Well-balanced and really enjoyable.

yngwie (13399) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a slightly hazy golden-orange body under a small, off-white head. The aroma is quite piney and resiny, with some orange peel and a malty sweetness. There’s a fine bitterness in the flavor, at all stages, and lots of other hoppy flavors. Balancing maltyness. Full body, semi-dry and lightly warming, pleasantly carbonation. Long, bitter and hoppy finish with a malty sweetness in the back. Pretty nice this one, bet it’s even better fresh from the brewery. 131123

Ulfborg weekend celebration of nothing in particular. Hazy dark golden with a lasting white head. Juicy, fruity aroma with orange, grapefruit and peach, a touch touch of caramel and some alcohol. Sweet juicy hop flavour with a good bitterness
