A novel idea but this beer is off on several marks. The aroma is interesting but my expectations were much more citrus and floral complexity. The taste is a bit syrupy with some taste of soap. The bitterness is far from what is on the label. I have tasted more hops is many different IPAs. The taste is also a bit one dimensional. A fantastic brewer but not their best effort....

13 dec 2013, bottle. Orange and a tad cloudy. Nose is orange and grapefruit rind. Med body and mildly fizzy. Sugary brown sugar and grapefruit rind. Pretty good balance of sweet malt and serious hops.

Bitter beer, no doubt. Amber pour. Resin, pine, and a kick of citrus. Caramel malt body in the taste, but the pine definitely pops with a huge bitterness. Especially at the end, the bitterness powers on. Pretty dry and medium carbonation.

Wow. I wouldn’t drink this normally but have been very keen to try it to see just how bitter bitter can be. And it’s bitter. Tastes of dandelion (if you ever tried that when you were a kid). It’s sharply bitter and lingers, even grows, for some time. Very, very dry as a result. Great beer!

Bottle. Pours a dark muddy brown orange color with a large mocha cream head. Nose is deep citrus with full resin and pine. Needless to say the beer is massively bitter with wall to wall hops, and no appreciable malt. Finish is mouth puckering and the finish is extremely long. Really interesting, glad I tried it but obviously not your go to DIPA. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Pours a hazy amber orange with a beuge head and strong aroma of hops, grapefruit and resin. Taste is massive bitterness, tons of hops, grapefruit, resin, citrus, and caramel with more heavy bitterness into the dry finish. Great for hop heads, lots of bitterness and hops loaded into this one, unique

33 cl. bottle poured in to a snifter. Dark amber colour with a big, creamy off-white head. Fruity aroma with a big load of hops: Citrus, grapefruits, grasses, pines and orange zest. Underlying, rich caramel malts, overpowered by the hops. Taste is bitter - with a sweet fruitiness behind. Full body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Long lasting dry and very bitter finish with pines, grapefruits and citrus. Excellent DIPA. However, I am glad this a small bottle - the bitterness totally kills your taste buds. Extreme.

The beer is yellow to orange to brown and very hazy with a blonde head. The aroma is very hoppy with grapefruit, alcohol and some pine. The flavor is first caramelly sweet, woody and licoricy with a very very long, bitter and intense finish. The mouthfeel is full and harsh. The bitterness is overwhelming, but it makes a good slowly enjoyable beer.

Bottle. Pours hazy dark amber. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, grass, floral, caramel, citrus and tropical fruits. Big aroma! Taste is very bitter and light sweet. Long bitter finish. Oily texture. You can just taste so many hops. Full bodied with average carbonation
