UPDATED: MAY 23, 2010 @ Copenhagen Beer Fest & bottle at home. Pours hazy brown-orange. Off white head. Sweet tropical fruits, sweetness, apricots in aroma. Tropical fruits in taste aswell, serious medicinal bitterness, but sweet aswell. Actually quite balanced.

Draught at Mikkeller bar, Copenhagen, on May 8, 2010
Hazy copper color, white head. Sweet hoppy scent. Sweet hoppy taste. Bitter aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, high bitterness. Not at all as hoppy/bitter as I feared.

MmmcKay (1051) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Sampled at Guess Who’s back Tasting. One sip of this stuff makes my tongue curl for minutes. Acidic and resinous. Really freaking hoppy and bitter...

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 8, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2010 Pours a lasting ring of beige head with a copper body. Aromas of, not to be speaking in generalities, but hops. As in, sleep in a bed of hops that is six feet long and ten inches deep...camping in a hop row? Also, some caramelized malt. Flavor is caramel and pine hops. Resin and cone aspects abound. Finish is sticky, resin, dry for a long time after.

Butters (3725) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Sampled at the Guess Who’s Back tasting. Fucking resinous. Crazy. Huge alpha acids. Oily. Good as a sipper and not just a novelty. Wow. A whole mouth experience. I feel like i just smoked a hundred joints and have mad cottonmouth.

DYCSoccer17 (3290) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Bottle purchased at the Davis Food Co-Op. Aroma is grassy, musty, hempy with some pine notes. Nicely aromatic with some good dankness. Moderately hazy orange body with a good off-yellow head that is strong. Leaves nice legging. Starts off with some spicy and grassy hoppiness, before it becomes a little toasted in the middle. Decent balance of maltiness and hoppiness here. Finishes with some hempy, herbal, pine, grassy hop flavors. A very enjoyable IIPA, which definitely meets the California standards of a West Coast IIPA. The fact that this is a few weeks old and has traveled half way across the globe is truly remarkable. A nice treat, but I can’t say I’d pay $1 a ounce for this again.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Sampled on 5/7/2010. This Imperial IPA pours a cloudy dark orange gold color from a corked 375ml bottle. Medium sized white foamy head, with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is floral and piney, grapefruity and herbal. Lots of hops, a whole lotta hops. A medium bodied Imperial IPA. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are floral and grapefruity. The hops are very present in this beer, a lot more in the aroma than in the flavor. The bitterness is not all that apparent at first and kind of grows on you. For all that hop flavor it is not all that bitter. It’s fairly well balanced between the malt and hops. For all the hops it has a very nice malt profile. Hides the alcohol well. Hop flavors build as you go along and as the beer warms. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter.

thornecb (4293) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Pours hazy brown into a snifter. Off-white head quickly recedes to hug rim. Grapefruit and melon aromas. Slick and sharp bitterness with grapefruit pith and sour melon. Lasting alcohol burn.
