Poured from bottle into a snifter. Aroma was not very strong and kind of disappointed me. Appearance was very nice with a semi cloudy golden orange color and a one finger off white head that disappeared quickly. Taste made up for what it lacked in aroma. it was great. Just the right amount of sweetness with the caramel straw citrus and grass. The palate I think was right on. Perfect mouth feel, smooth and creamy. Excellent beer and in my top 5 of this style. Try it I doubt you will be disappointed. Cheers!

Poured from a bottle into a snifter a cloudy orangish gold with a white head. Aroma is non descript (only true flaw of this brew) didn’t catch much here instead kept thinking it smelled like a cleaned bathroom-may be the glass I chose to drink it from. Flavor floored me. Truly a lover of imperial IPAs and this one is the TITS!. Caramel pine trees smooth sweet. Balanced like so few Imperial IPAs can do. This one is incredible in every sip. Sad I had to share the bottle but my husband is worth it... As impressive as Pliny, Hopslam, Creeper, Dreadnaught- My top faves as a DIPA fan.

Bottle. Lactic caramel and strong vegetal and pine aroma. Hazy amber with small head. Sweet caramel malt, sour milk, and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Okay - probably the bottle I got wasn’t too fresh.

radiomgb (2388) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
330 ml bottle from the Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Hazy orange in colour with a long lasting off white head. The aroma is very hoppy, lots of grapefruit, oranges, some caramel, tropical fruits. The flavour is quite hoppy upfront, moderate bitterness, tropical fruit sweetness, soapy and chewy. Hoppy and bitter mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes long, hoppy and bitter. Lots of fruit in this one, very tropical. I like this one lots.

"nice bright aroma and bittersweet citrus flavor. hides the alcohol very very well, and tasted fresher than many of Mikkellers stateside brews. very well done, will search out again."

Tap at Hopfenreich 29/09/14. Pour is gold with a small head. Taste is fruity with very strong bitterness. Quality

Marko (4068) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 28, 2014
Shared with Daria & Filip (thanks!). Poured a dark amber body with a small white head. Malty aroma with notes of orange rock candy. Sweet taste, more orange candy, light hoppy bitterness with some more sugary sweetness. And yeah, another underwhelming, sweet DIPA from this combo. Didn’t like I Hardcore You, didn’t like this one. Separately they brew great beers, together... less so.

Desverger (2386) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2014
Tap@Fermentoren, Copenhagen - hazy amber coloured pour with tight off-white head. Aroma and taste is a medley of tropical and citrus fruits, resinous hoppy and big sweet malt on the palate, lots of caramel, toffee, with some mandarin, grapefruit and peach, pine needles, good mouthfeel, medium body and carbonation, hoppy bitter finish. Lovely.

Patrickctenchi (4090) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle: Thick, cloudy brown/burnt orange with a creamy tan head. Strong bready, caramel scent. Oily, resiny bitter taste over syrupy fruits. Creamy...thick...like whipped hop-oils... Too rich, too clingy hopped to be pleasant... An exercise in brewing excess.....a hop-heads dream.

HammerTroll (590) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 19, 2014
Hazy dark amber color, medium sized white head (not completely white). Gorgeous floral and pine aroma, hops all around. Also some orange. Bittersweet taste. Full body, soft carbonation. Alcohol is barely noticeable. Great DIPA.
