Leighton (12650) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2010
Bottle shared at Euston Tap, London. Pours a lightly hazy, dark amber with a mild, beige head. Big, complex aroma with plenty of grapefruit, orange and grass hops, plus lots of sugary malts. Flavor is very sweet with lots of malty caramel, alcohol, and certainly quite bitter, with citrus and pine. Full bodied with fine carbonation, light warmth, and a chewy, slightly syrupy character. Finishes sweet with notes of caramel, toasted cereal malts, and lingering fruit, pine and resinous hops. Not as abrasively hoppy as I would have expected and much sweeter. Very good.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2010
375ml bottle from IPB.
Appearance : Hazy amber with a small creamy head.
Aroma : Peachy and quite resinous. Very sweet with lots of caramel.
Taste : Peachy sweet and sugary. Notes of brown sugar with some alcohol. Quite resinous. Finish is sweet and peachy. Carbonation is quite flat.
Overall : A bit disapointing. The doesn’t fell very hoppy nor very bitter. I agree that the intense sweetness probably masks much of the bitterness. Too sweet/caramel/peachy for my taste. I don’t get the idea behind this beer.

Beer4000 (4771) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2010
Sampled @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Hazy, brownish orange body a thin beige head. Strong fruity hop aroma dominated by grapefruit and pine with some caramel. Flavor is bitter of course and fruity on a caramel malt base. Still surprisingly balanced at this high IBU, its more intense fruity bitter than just bitter-bitter. A long and pleasant, bitter aftertaste. Alcohol is well camuflaged. An interesting experience indeed.

bmeup (544) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2010
Dark copper brown with a tight creamy head. Powerful citrus & hops [plenty] and sweet malt aromas. Heavy bitterness of citrus, pine and a slick sweet toasted caramel malt. Drying mouthfeel and long finish. Not a hop bomb as expected. A great sipper to try with the strongest blue cheese you can get. Most enjoyable beer.

StefanSD (2217) - Lakeside, California, USA - NOV 7, 2010
12.7oz bottle from Bev4less. Pours a cloudy brown color with a small off-white head that soon recedes to a fine film. The aroma is moderate in strength with, pine, citrus and sweet nuts. The flavor is biter hops forward with grapefruit, resins, caramel, sherry and toffee. The palate is smooth and malty with soft carbonation. Finishes long and harshly biter. Overall: One of the most harshly biter brews that I have consumed in a long time, but hey--I really wouldn’t have wanted this any other way...

Cavie (3893) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Bottle courtesy bu11zeye. Slightly hazy orangish color with a little head. Aroma is very thick sap with aged wood, spicy hops and bright fresh notes. Flavor is lots of hops, and caramel flavors. Lightly bittered finish.

rane (926) - Nibe, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2010
Bottle. Red brown with small pale brown head. Hadn´t settled enough so lots of floating particles in the last half of the bottle. Aroma hoppy, citrus and some malt, not as brutal offensive hoppy as expected. Taste typical IIPA, not as hoppy as expected, but off cause still a bitter hoppy taste and lots of malt underneath. Finishes dry. An average IIPA, not as brutal and offensive as expected and certainly not as bitter. In fact I´ve had IIPA tasting more bitter than this, but an interesting experiment.
