Behoorlijk intense ipa. De geur van honing en citrus springt als het ware uit het glas, maar het geheel blijft heerlijk rond. Een topper.

A very intense IPA, dark orange color. Lots of hops, in both the head and body. Have to drink very slowly or it’s almost too sweet. Quite good buy too expensive.

jerd16 (180) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2014
Pours hazelnut with beige lasting spongy head. Thick lacing. Extremely piney on the nose. Unsuprisingly hoppy. Pine clouds a very subtle grapefruit and sweet malt. Assessing the fundamentals would lead to a vastly different rating. It’s a little too sweet at the front and in an instant it becomes heavily bitter. So I choose to rate it as a novelty. In that regard it deserves acclaim. The bottle I had was >3mths old and still it retained some hop-flavor and the bitterness is so astringent, its like sucking on an aspirin tablet. Long after the nectar has glided down the oesophagus, its bitter essence lingers. Growing steadily in ferocity it beats all other flavors into submission. Suprisingly, despite it being a genuine hop-bomb it is incredibly drinkable and smooth on the palate. Dry in the finish. This really isn’t so much a beer. Its an experience.

Oklar, brun-orange med ett riktigt orange skum. Doft: Massvis och otroligt mycket färsk humle, gräs, barr. Smak: Samma som doft typ. Bra eller bara extrem? Tror båda.

On tap at mikkeller. Pours a cloudy amber with a yellowish head. Aroma is not very strong, but tasting, this is the hoppyest beer i have had. One for hopheads.

Recenzja z 04.02.2014. Kolor ciemnopomaranczowy, mocne jednolite zmetnienie. Piana wysoka, bardzo powoli opada, zostawia gruba warstwe i bardzo mocno oblepia szklo. W zapachu slodkie owoce, ananas, zywica, sporo slodu i karmelu, lekkie toffi, mocny aromat gorzkich ziol, alkohol niewyczuwalny. W smaku bardzo pelne, geste, oleiste i tresciwe, likierowate, lekko kwaskowate. Goryczka srednia w strone wysokiej, zalegajaca, piekaca, lekko sciagajaca, aromat amerykanski, herbaciany i mocno ziolowy. Wysycenie bardzo niskie, ale nie zerowe. Bardzo dobre, ale jednoczesnie bardzo slabo pijalne, po prostu jest zbyt slodkie.

Really appreciated this imperial IPA. but, however, there could be something else than grass in the flavor. Also, I feel an off-flavor in the aftertaste.

Garrold (1063) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Cloudy amber. A bit lumpy. Thin, broken, lasting, tan head. Huge pine resin, outdoors, cut grass, walk through the woods after a downpour thing going on. Very ripe mandarin. Some soft toffee, too. Taste is thick, chewy sweetness, before the bitterness kicks in, and gives you a proper thumping. It’s all in the best possible taste, though. Everything feels natural and earthy, and organic. Everything I hoped it would be. And a bit more. Lovely.

Poured a murky orange amber with a frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet citrus and lactose. Medium body, flavour is very bitter, dry and not very nice.
