bwa5879 (870) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 10, 2012
22oz bottle from valley beverage, Sherman oaks, CA. Deep mahogany/amber pour. Head was offwhite, dense, and an inch high. Smells like chocolate, gin, and freshly fried French fries, malty overall. Fairly well balanced flavor, leaning toward malt rather than hops. Caramel malt, bitter pine taste. Not nearly as special as the scent. Finish is sweet and dry, Chardonnay-like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zymurgeist2 (1628) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 24, 2016
From bomber to glass. The sage takes over this beer and makes it hard to drink. Moderate low aspects of cookie malt. Clear amber-orange with full off-white head. Ended up dumping this one.

Flarra hos Biskopen Helsingborg. Mörkt rostfärgad . Doftar gammal källare ja en rätt tung men svag doft. Medelfyllig i munnen. Medelbeska. Smakar väldigt klassiskt rent Dipa. Eftersmak lite vatten faktiskt.. Nja en rätt trisst men ok Dipa. Testas ihop med All Inn Big blind . Åh härrejövlar vad god Big blind är. En svensk Dipa mycket bättre än en USA Dipa. !!!!!! Fantastiskt ju

Bottle. Two finger frothy beige head. Clear copper coloured body. Aroma is weak, but malt dominated, even at high temperatures. Some floral hops as well, but not too hoppy. Very well balanced on the tongue!

fkoolen (808) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2015
Draught at Mammoth Lake Brewery. Light amber colour, offwhite creamy head. Interesting nose with juniper berry and sweet herbal notes; in the taste they’re less prominent, medium caramel malty, big bitterness in the finish. Good body, medium carbonation.
