4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours very dark amber color with a white head. Monster hop aroma with a little hint of booze. Taste is of straight pine with subtle citrus notes. Overall fairly well balanced, but still a smack in the mouth. Cool.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium light brown head. Deep brown body with small floaties and carbonation. Intense oily grassy resiny citric aroma with gasoline notes. Intense oily mango resin taste surfs on a wild wave of bitterness, accompanied by alcohol notes. Full body. Hot, sharp mouthfeel. Bitter alcoholic orangey resiny aftertaste with oily catnip notes. An extreme beer. Drinkable (as in, can be drunk with enjoyment) and interesting. (0.375l bottle, Høkeren, Copenhagen.)

Had this one @ CBF 2010. Orange colored brew. Hoppy aroma. Flavor has a good hopflavor, not as intense as one would expect. Soft and smooth. Good bitterness, grape, apricots.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottled, 0.375l) Hazy darkish red with a medium, tanned, lasting and lacy head. Dry, woody-grassy-hoppy nose with some exotic fruitiness, and slight stinginess in the "All Others Pale -style". Dryish, strongly grassy-herby-hoppy flavor, with some aromatic (grape)fruitiness, and backed up quite nicely with the caramely-malty body. Long, bitter and dry aftertaste, alcohol fully hidden. Medium to full body, lowish carbonation. Not really that different from 100 IBU beers - so in that sense, it’s just waste of hops. Very nice and quite balanced Double IPA overall, though.

Pours dark mahogny with a beige head.
Huge body for a DIPA, which makes this extreme beer rather balanced! Lots of malt and citrusyhops. Not at all as bitter tasting as expected.

From a bottle. Pours a deep amber which is almost brown. Nice off-white head that leaves nice lacing. Sweet and hoppy aroma with caramel and grapefruit. Thick mouthfeel on this one which is rather enjoyable. Taste caramel, orange, and grapefruit. The finish is very bitter.
