3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml brown bottle. Best before date on cap - 29/04/17. Orange gold colour, cloudy. Small beige cap with great lacework left in the glass. Aroma - big grapefruit, flowers, caramel/toffee, orange peels, peach and pineapple, alcohol. Taste - caramel malt sweetness, lightly fruity with orange peel and late grapefruit. Lingering grapefruit and orange peel aftertaste, medium bitterness, some finishing alcohol. Body is medium. Pretty solid DIPA, nice aromatics and pretty good looking in the glass. Better than expected.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Very nice, light booze, coconut touches, tropical fruit. Aroma is stinky tropical fruit, house IPA style, still coy (?!) and fruity. Very enjoyable. Left the probable spelling mistake in this rating in case I somehow touched on something.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaska från boxbeers.dk. Gyllengul kraftigt glumlad vätska med tjockt och gräddigt skum. Dofter av mandarin, mango och passionsfrukt. Mums vilken smak. Stor maltkropp som sånär lyckas lura bort den stora beskan. Gräddig och len munkänsla. Helhetsbetyget dras ner en del av sorachi ace, denna svårbemästrade humle som kan vara svår att älska.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOTTLE 33 CL. Murky orange, big light tan head. Delicate caramel malt aroma, lots of different hop notes - the traditional citrus, culinary herbs (dill?), fresh figs, dried apples, grape skin. It is incredibly drinkable for its abv, without being sweet and even without lots of balancing bitterness. The flavour also has figs and apple. Thee finish is light bitter with a touch of warming alcohol. A different kind of DIPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle pours a cloudy golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is tropical fruits with some citrus and some dusty notes. Taste is a tropical fruity sweetness with a light citrus hop bitterness finishing dry and dusty. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Overall, this is a strange DIPA that just seems to be very messy and not put together well. A bit of a disappointing brew from a brewery that very seldom lets me down.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle at home from brewdog online
dark amber with peach and mango on nose, full bodied, quite hot, boozy, brash, not well integrated and ultimately a drain pour.

@Basunen 15-9-5: fruktig lite småhumlig, ananas men ändå ganska klen på nåt vis. Inte så mycket mer.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2015 Taplines probably weren’t cleaned well the first time I had this, so I gave it another shot. Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Hazy copper color with a one-finger soapy head. Orange marmalade, apricot, biscuits and honey on the nose. Sweet on the palate with some light grass and wood that comes out as it warms. No more paint thinner. Still too sweet for me, but didn’t taste off. Nice if you like sweet, full bodied barley wine territory encroaching Double IPAs. Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Hazy rusty orange with a nice soapy head. Aromas of papaya and apple with some dried apricot. Also a bit of paint thinner on the nose as well as it warms (Oxidized maybe?). Fairly sweet with a lot of wood that comes on as well. Finishes with some bitterness. Not in the best condition I suppose.
