TheRimmer (483) - Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2007
Tap at Brother Tuckers. Amazing hop floral nose. Sweet, juicy, fresh, pungent hops. Taste was minimal amounts of bread, wheat germ, awashed in massive hops. Sweet, syrup. Body was too thin. Hid the 8.5% very well.

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2008
(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 17 June 2008) Amber colour, hazy, with beige head. Fruity, hoppy nose with dried fruit, resin, grapefruit and orange peel. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, dried apricots, resin, pine needles and toffee. Well balanced bitterness, fairly sweet, chewy mouthfeel. Nice one.

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Draught @ BTAH VSK, ’05 vintage. Pours a cloudy orange-amber, light, with a pillowy off-white head.Nose is an almost candy caramel malt sweetness, citrus - like a bowl of candied pineapple. Taste is a big, sweet malt body, lots of very rich caramel, underpinning a nice, hoppy citrus hop note throughout. Dry, light bitterness, and just a hint of astringency. Medium body, crisp but light carbonation.

thebeertourist (4778) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2008
On tap at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Nice hazy red copper colour, but poured with a small head. Delicious raisins and caramel aromas, followed by more bitter dry nuttiness as well as fruit in the mouth. Solid trouble.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2011

Tmoney99 (10551) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2014
Draft sample. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Medium to heavy sour citrus and earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration.This is a solid beer.

NachlamSie (2751) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 2, 2007
Draught. Okay, I had quite high hopes for this one based on the tastiness of their Indica, but I was slightly let down. Pours a cloudy orange hue with a fluffy whitish head. The nose is bright with hints of pineapple, green tea, grapefruit, and caramel. Mouthfeel is quite sticky with suggestions of dense caramel, lemon zest, grapefruit, and menthol. Balance among the flavors is achieved well and the presentation is pretty good. I’d drink this often if it was readily available, I was just hoping for something notably superior to their Indica.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Draft @ the brewpub. Clear, bright copper color with an ivory head. Doesn’t have anywhere near the hop aroma I’d expect from an IIPA. Fruity malt flavor with a big bitterness. It’s all there but the aroma.

swoopjones (5725) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2007
On tap @ Mister Goodbar Buffalo NY. Very malty & extremely tasty. If this is 8.5 you would never know. Hops sort of dominated by caramel malts. Not as hop dominated as most DIPA’s but tasty
