jerohen (2076) - Bussum, - OCT 1, 2012
On draft at Brewdog pub, Glasgow. Dark golden colored, small head. Very hoppy nose, pine. Very bitter flavor, but drinkable. Only in finish it really becomes astringent. Funny experiment, but just too much.

Alusmamuts (1073) - LATVIA - AUG 30, 2015
Amber with rich creamy off-white head. Sweet hoppy aroma. Quite strong sweet background taste immediatedly followed by very strong bitterness. Latter stays long in the aftertaste.

ElManana (1144) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle at Gents Bierfestival. Very hoppy offcourse, earthy, tropical, mango, very strong bitterness. Absolutely love this one. Don’t drink anything else after this though, because your palate will be shipwrecked.

JefVerstraete (2140) - Ghent, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2015
Sample @ Gents bierfestival 2015. Red amber colour, white foam. Medium carbonation. Sweet nose of grapefruit and passion fruit. Very bitter hoppy finish. Very hoppy but delicious.

HomerBeerOdysy (77) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 23, 2015
APPEARANCE - Opaque, cloudy, foamy, lots of lacing, sediment, amber 4FH that really lasts. AROMA/SCENT - Hops, pine. TASTE - Hops, bitter, nutty, pine, coffee. MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Thick, smooth, very lingering, warming, very frothy. VALUE - $9.60 for an 11-oz bottle. A bit pricey, even for an import. OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - 1,000 IBU is an advertising gimmick, but this beer is worth a try. It is bitter, but that’s mostly because it’s not malty at all, just zero sweetness to it.

dnicolaescu (1319) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 23, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Hazy red, beige head with good retention. Super sweet aroma with dank hops and a touch of alcohol. Taste: a classic rich maltiness of a really big IPA, followed by a huge grassy and pungent bitterness, with alcohol adding to the spice. Very full body, yet not at all sticky. Could be a marketing gimmick, but in the end it is a well constructed big IPA.

Tariczny (73) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 22, 2015
Very nice ruby, dark amber a bit hazy color. Nice head and lacing. Aroma: full of tropical fruits, mango, citrus, grapefruit and resin with caramel. Taste: hoppy, with earthy tones, tropical fruits mainly mango. Bitterness is really nice and strong but not lasting, it has really nice resin finish without malty base, but after a while You could taste some caramel notes. Medium carbonated and semi dry with noticable sweetness. Really good and bitter beer,

scottm2588 (9) - Dumbarton, SCOTLAND - AUG 22, 2015 does not count
Pours a deep amber with a medium white head that lasts and leaves a lovely lacing. Aroma is ripe fruit (tropical), piney hops, very slight malts and you can almost smell the bitterness. Taste is sweet biscuit, mango, over-ripe pineapple with a mammoth bitter hop kick at the end. A very well balanced beer and an absolute must for any hop head. Comparable to some of the big American DIPAs.

Przemek1992 (66) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 19, 2015
Dosłownie wywar z chmielu. W zasadzie nie czuć tu nic poza chmielem. Kapitalna moc cytrusów i owoców tropikalnych delikatnie podbita zywicznością. Alkohol dobrze ukryty goryczka na poziomi takim ze juz wyżej chyba sie nie da:)

On tap. Copper color with one finger off white head. Earthy, pine and slight citrus aroma. Really hoppy, almost too much. Heavy, bitter sweet. Really big beer.
