Bottle. Pours a nice golden orange color that is hazy like hell. The head is frothy and off white. Aroma is extremely hoppy, filled with grapefruit, pine and some freshly cut grass. I do not get any malts at all. The flavor is also very hoppy with grapefruit and pine along with a slight amount of pineapple and cannabis. The flavor has some sweet and caramelly malt though. The body is medium with an oily and dry mouthfeel. It is a super bitter DIPA. Overall a pretty nice DIPA from Mikkeller, but it might a bit too bitter.

Good, collapsing yellow head over fully hazy orange-amber beer. Very citrussy hops, but with a strange, sharper tang behind the citrus onslaught - bit like vegetable frying oil or cheeserind. Very harsh, resiny flavour with massive citruszeste, and again something else - this time I’d wager (baked) baconrind. Despite its force, the bitterness is not all-overpowering, which speaks for the maltbacking. Sharpish MF, very well-carbonated, oily-slick and rather well-bodied. IIPA with a twist, well worth trying.

330 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy orange colour with a foamy, lacy and a bit unstable head. Aroma of floral hops, loads of it. Flavour is very well balanced with floral hops, fruits and alcohol. Very pleasant on the palate with loads of hops and warming alcohol. Would buy this again. This is pretty much like Drikkeriget DIPA to the max.

Pours a shaded peach orange though once put under light is a fascinating reddish hue. A nice firm head crowns and leaves a sticky lace. Certainly loaded with a pungent citrus aroma, intensely sweet and hoppy, just as I like it, fresh and bitter, caramel/toffee notes suggested as well. Wow, this is a hop bomb for sure. Five varieties of hops are used, all of which contain some of the highest alpha acid percentages to produce a brutally bitter beer. I understand the idea behind this beer was to gather a shitload of hops throw them in a pot and produce something extreme. Well I’d say then that this is a success. Tropical fruits are jam packed and drowning in hoppy pine bitterness. The body is deliciously juicy and chewy, quite the luscious mouth feel. A bone dry finish, I seriously need some water. Most double/imperial IPAs have a huge caramel malt backbone. I Beat yoU tunes the caramel down a bit with the malt undeniably trampled by pure hoppiness. This kind of beer reaffirms my love for hops. Much like the way I love Sour Patch Kids. I’ll eat a ton of those sour sugary treats until my mouth is torn apart and I can’t taste anything for days. Similarly, I enjoy the onslaught of hop bitterness that destroys my palate and leaves me buzzed and thirsty for more.

RasmusOtt (1060) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2014 Pours freaking clean amber with an off white head. The aroma is just textbook hopforward CLEAN ipa with notes of citrus, tropical fruits and pine. Also some deeper malty and oat notes in the background but not in a bad way at all. Taste has that same delicious textbook IPA with tropical fruits added. You can feel that it is a big IPA but the alcohol is still pretty hidden. Sharp and bitter end on this one. Wow, really a treat!

500 mL bottle shared by Butters at the 12th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering on 9/18/10. Thanks! By the way, Butters Let the Dogs Out. Pours a clear copper color with a thin offwhite head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, and some toffeeish notes. The taste is bitter citrus and leafy hops, and a bit of smoke.

Bottle shared by TomDecapolis. Tasted side-by-side with the Brewdog I Hardcore You. Pours an orange gold with minimal head. Piney aroma with a good deal of fruitiness. Flavors of the same but a bit of metallic burn. I preferred the blended Brewdog version better. Very solid, but not spectacular.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2011 Not much head. Orange colour. Slightly hazy. Very bitter and a little sweet. Grapefruit. Very hoppy with resin like flavour. EDIT: toisella kerralla olut paljastuu myös hunajaiseksi, marjaiseksi ja kukkeaksi. Makeahko ja katkera.
