330mL bottle, Pours a pretty golden hued color with very little head. Smells immediatly of hops giving it a great citrusy flavor that lingers on the back of your tongue. I actualy didn’t like it, but it is a well produced beer, just not a favorite.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2007
12oz bottle as a bonus from footbalm - Thanks Eric! - Pours amber with a short offwhite head that stays pretty well and laces the sides of the snifter. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, and some slight caramel beneath that. Flavor is orange, grapefruit, slight pine, along with some caramel. Good balance and a soft mouthfeel. Pretty smooth drinking for a double IPA. Enjoyed it.

Svesse (5862) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2007
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Amber colour, slightly cloudy, with off-white, frothy head. Fruity, seriously hoppy nose with pine needles, grapefruit and orange peel. Fruity taste with orange, apricots and almost overwhelming amounts of fresh American hops giving it hints of pine needles and grapefruit in the very hoppy finish. Rather one dimensional, but with a very nice hop character.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2007
Last beer of a 5 day beer tour of San Diego. Drank in the room at the 4 Points Sheraton. Poured a lightly hazed copper color with a medium sized foamy off-white head. Decent lacing. The aroma was mildly citrus with creamy caramel like those little caramel candy squares. Citrus and malty flavor with sweet orange notes. Silky mouthfeel and full bodied. It lacked the IIPA bitterness.

bigrond (1443) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2007
very piney. But real good. nice ’warming’ effect. Not very well balanced but tasty and will hit the spot. not exceptionally high alc. for a ’double’

Thanks to zathrus13 for the bottle. Copper, thin tan head. Nose is brown sugar, orangey caramel, a hint of alcohol. Flavor is caramel, brown sugar, alcohol. Very bitter finish.

I like this beer alot. It poured a nice cloudy orange color with a thin white head. The aroma and flavor were very hoppy and the flavor was also well balanced. Recommended.

Bottle. A weird, spicey, harsh finish to this beer w/ virtually no hop nose ruin it for me. Very dry. Not my favorite.
