Mandarin definitely. I have a few crooked tattoos but no moons though. Plenty of mandalas. Couple of all seeing eyes. Half decent label this one as well. No Raymond Pettibon though is it?

Good DIPA. Quite cloudy pour. Primary taste is grapefruit, over a sublimely sweet malt base. Back ended bitterness is nice and not overwhelming. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 5, 2013
I am either an easy rater or i drink incredible beer, I like to think the latter. Straight forward hoppy smell. Beautiful deep cloudy orange color with constant active little bubbles. Taste of warm sappy hop, with a nice yeast finish. Mouth is coated in aftertaste not a bad thing but coated. Its a Mikkeller hit, its good.

juanenka (245) - valladolid, SPAIN - MAY 4, 2013
Botella. Dorada y limpia con gran corona blanca y consistente. Aroma a lúpulo fresco, pino muy herbal. En boca entra dulce y rápido pasa a un intenso alcohol poco integrado pero no desagradable. Con un final resinoso seco y dulce.

JPDurden24 (1564) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Hazy orange pour with little to no head. Citrus and earth aroma with a very orange peel forward flavor and a nice bitterness on the finish. Pretty damn good.

Plovmand (6351) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a medium white head. The aroma is gooseberry, passion fruit, citrus, orange peel and light peach in the aroma. The flavor is bitter and spicy fruity with notes of berries, citrus, burned rubber from the Nelson and light peach. Bitter sweet fruity finish. Very quaffable! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Koelschtrinker (10479) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - APR 27, 2013
Fruchtig hopfiger Antrunk, dabei vor allem Ananas und Mango. Alkoholnoten sind deutlich erkennbar, sie sind hinter dem intensiven Hopfen und der milderen Bitterkeit versteckt. Die Bitterkeit verstärkt sich im Verlauf und ist besonders im Abgang stark vorhanden, gleichauf mit dem süßlichen Hopfen. Klebrig hopfiger, etwas alkoholischer Nachhall. Schwere Kost! 9/11/8/12/13/11

FriarHop (121) - Long Beach, New York, USA - APR 24, 2013
Soapy white head, honey in color. An amazing hop aroma and flavor. Spicy, mango and a caramel sweetness that ends with an almost overwhelming hop palate. Must be due to the variety of hops used in the brew. Truly an awesome brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml Bottle (£4.40, The Good Spirit Co, Glasgow):
Hops and bitter pine notes straight off the bat and these are closely followed by some grapefruit notes that add to the bitterness. There is a strong tropical fruits aroma that is very nice with mango, citrus, apricot and some pineapple all making an appearance. Spice & a touch of alcohol at the end.
Cloudy orange with a one inch tall, bubbly white head that holds a lot better than you would imagine a 9% beer would hold with it halving in size and holding well.
Bitter with a lot of pine and citrus starting things off alongside lots of grapefruit and bitterness. Some alcohol & a nice blend of tropical fruits too with some pineapple and mango feature along with some orange and lemon amongst others making a strong but balanced beer.
Strong carbonation and a huge amount of bitterness in this double IPA along with plenty of hops giving a very dry and bitter mouthfeel. There is a bit of alcohol grain in there but not a lot, particularly considering the strength of the beer, and the beer has a strong, lingering bitter aftertaste.

Very nice double IPA and one that I was pleased to note that whilst being very bitter and loaded with hops didn’t seem to over do it thanks to the strong presence of the background flavours and the tropical fruits taste. There is a nice warming alcohol kick towards the end rather than the usual grainy taste that you quite often find.
