Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2014
33cl bottle pours with a crystal clear copper body with golden hues and supporting a nice full dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet malts, sticky malt blunted pine hops as well as malt sweetened faint fruity ester notes. The taste is rich and deep and hoppy with robust sticky pine hop goodness as well as some resiny floral hops where there’s a solid sugar malt sweetness in the background. To midway a light fruity ester note manages to surface amid the thicket of good rich hoppiness. Cool brew!

Nice. Malty. Sli that’ll sweet malts. Good malt backbone. Not particularly hoppy. Surprisingly drinkable for the ABV. Good.

AgentAle (403) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Aroma is citrus and grapefruit notes...very pronounced. Taste is a fresh bitterness that dominates all notes...very tangy finish that persists. Very high IBUs to be sure.Cloudy gold/amber body with medium frothy head.

Smalle (62) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle from Willems, Grobbendonk. Nose: pine resin, orange zest. A lot of hops, not much beer. Taste: Agressively hoppy and bitter with a bit of alcohol. A bit too extreme for my taste.

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. BBF 16/07/2019 (seems more than excessive for the style). Pours an almost clear orange, head is small & white but very lasting. Smell is very bitter dried mandarin & orange peel, hugely bitter pine resin hops, bit oily, very raw grapefruit. Taste is similar, hugely bitter dried mandarin + orange peels and crazily bitter pine resin, very heavily so almost venturing into floral department, faint caramel malts underneath. Lighter, oily touch sticky body with carbonation being a touch too high. This is way too much, nearly bordering on non-enjoyable. A beer for people who think that the more hops, the better. A miss from Mikkeller, I finished it & it wasn’t all bad but it way too much for me obviously.

mjakopa (176) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - FEB 19, 2014
Pours a light gold colour with light head. Aroma is quite alcoholic, but backed with hoppyness, sweetness and some bubblegum. Taste is sweeter than expected, but still hoppy and dry aftertaste. In general a very interesting sweet IPA, but the alcohol can be a bit much.

SlackerMads (1241) - DENMARK - FEB 13, 2014
Light hazy yellow with a medium sized slowly diminishing creamy white head. Passion fruit, apricot, light pine, light bread, light caramel, light alcoholic. Nothing sticks much out, seems a bit more closed than the high version with more dominating malt notes. Full body, medium sweet and bitter with a long lasting bitter finish.

GraveAtSea (130) - Lublin, POLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Color: a bit cloudy gold/orange with small white head, lacing glass. Hoppy aroma - floral, citrus, grapefruits, pines, caramel malts. Similar to some Imperial IPA style. Taste is really bitter with little sweet background. Grapefruits, pines, tropical fruits, herbal, grass, hoppy liqueur, a bit spirituous, Warming long finish. Full body with soft carbonation. The most hoppy strong lager that i ever taste. I like It.

Philym (692) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2014
Appearance: Hazy amber with 2 finger thick ivory head. Aroma: Lychee, tangerine, apricot, candied peel and a note of alcohol. Taste: medium sweet, low bitter and sourness with alcohol heat. Palate: Thick rough texture, medium body, low/average carbonation, lingering dry sweet, with building bitterness fruity finish and alcohol warmth. Comments: very good and glass lace.

Ericular (492) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with decent head and lacing. Aroma is big with dark fruit, cherries, alcohol, cereal, and slightly woody, herbal, and medicinal. Taste is also big, with toffee malts up front, then right into a crisp hop middle that dries it out quickly, leaving a bitter finish in the mouth, and the fruity malts only in the retronasal. This just in... it gets better as it warms. The malts stick around much longer and the transition to bitterness is improved. Interesting to try and good overall, but nothing worth seeking out again, especially given the high price tag.
