AlbertC (276) - Göteborg, - DEC 12, 2011
Bottle, 16 months old Aroma is hops, grass, citrus flowers, sweet crystal malts. Taste is first fresh, some sweet malts, moving over to floral hops, spicy hops, then to bitterness and rather big body malts, then lingering bitterness for at least 30 seconds.

Criz (105) - - OCT 17, 2014
On tap at Sergio’s World of Beer. Pours a super thick with a thick off white head that completely laces the glass. Murky reddish amber in color. Nose is slightly nutty, with a resinous scent that dominates. Flavors of pine, toffee, and a huge bitter hop finish. Mouthfeel is very thick and syrupy. Try this if you can.

Saeglopur (367) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle from AmmersinO, Vienna
Suprisingly dark red, hazy body, with a big, creamy, stable, beige head, that sticks to the glass a lot.
Aroma of citrus, red berries, peach and other stone fruits, some tropical fruits, caramel, tea.
Taste with about the same aromas, some additional roasty notes and the bitterness soon coming through.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a medium carbonation and in the finish the dry bitterness dominates and lasts forever, but there is also some roastiness, citrus, berries, stone fruits and a slight alcohol warmth.

Interesting and pretty unique. As expected with a strong bitterness, but well balanced by pleasant berries and stone fruits, caramel malts and even some roastyness. A heavy beer though that I can’t drink much, not only because of the strong bitterness, it is also pretty filling.

Didn’t get as much hop flavour or aroma as i thought i would from this beer. A strange kind of earthy, whiskey style flavour is present. It is very bitter but it feels like it lacks in late hop additions. I would get an Evil Twin Molotov Cocktail if you wan’t to experience an intense imperial IPA that takes hop flavour and aroma to the extreme.

Great IPA if you want to test your limits on hops this is the one you should try. If you are tasting more tgen 1 beer make this one the last, your palate will be affected

"looks slightly darker than the avg IIPA. Huge hop aroma, but some malt does come through as well. feel is thick, not quite sticky. flavor bitter and citrus, but no more than a 100 ibu beer. very good, but not worth the price tag. one and done for this bad boy."

danlo (1219) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2014
330ml bottle. Dark brown colour, hazy with lots of yeast carryover, foamy beige head leaving lacing and aroma of malt, toffee, orange hops. Taste is sweetish malty, caramel, toffee, with orange, citrus rind, woody pine, hop resins, grassy earthy bitter. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, lingering dry and very bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

hackobock (1449) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2014
August 15, 2014. Bottle, best before april 2016. Pours light hazy amber/red with a large creamy off-white head. Aroma is grass, pine, citrus and caramel. Taste is light/medium sweet resin and caramel up front, increasing dry grassy bitterness leading to a very dry bitter finish with light caramel notes in the background. Medium bodied, mouthfeel is light sticky caramel together with dry grassy hops.

[5696-20130817] Bottle. Malty roasted leaves hops aroma. Hazy, brown orange body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Bitter boozy leaves flavour has a long bitter hot finish. Medium-full body. Tasty but packs a kick in the pants. (7/3/7/3/16) 3.6
