DSG (5631) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 18, 2012
[5/14/12] Draught at The Bishops Arms in Copenhagen. Clear deep golden-copper. Aroma of piney and resinous hops, somewhat citric, with a bit of alcohol. Flavor has some thick malt and some sweetness and finishes bitter, hoppy, grapefruity and alcoholic. Medium-bodied, a bit oily. Quite good, a bit malty for my liking.

teorn88 (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2012
On tap at Cask P&C, London. It pours a slightly hazy deep golden orange color with nice creamy off-white head. Aroma is hop forward with tropical fruits and peaches over a nice caramely malty backbone. Taste is nicely balanced between the bitter hoppy notes and the sweetness from malt and alcohol. Mango, papaya, violets, grass, caramel, spices, pink peppercorns and a tad of acidity that gives great drinkability to a 10% ABV beer. Mouthfeel is oily with good carbonation. Overall, this would be a nice DIPA in its own merit, but spices and that slight acidity make it unique and amazing.
