From a bottle poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Strong citrus bitter hoppy flavor with a lasting aftertase.

lamas (1425) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2010
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours an orange/amber colored body with a smallish sandy head. A mouth-watering aroma of grapefruits and resiny pine trees with a great deal of crisp caramel maltiness in the background along with a touch of breadiness. A remarkably well-balanced aroma. Goes down medium-bodied and HARSH! There is an above-average level of effervescence that only adds to the tongue-prickling hoppiness. Ooohh wee! Lots of sweet caramel maltiness upfront taste-wise. Juicy grapefruits and citrus rinds follow. Spicy and peppery at the end. A dry finish that lingers. Excellent balance all the way. There is a presence of warming alcohol throughout, though nowhere near what you’d expect based on the 9.75% ABV. Simple, clean, and drinkable as hell! Just great, great stuff.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2010
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazed deep amber with a thin off-white head that fades by the second sip and leave partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of pine and grapefruit with a bit of an herbal quality as well. The flavor is malt and caramel followed by a wash of pine and grapefruit hops that I frankly thought was a little lacking in depth, particularly for a IIPA. Medium bodied.

Vignale (2365) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2011 Maffig Imperial IPA som ger en allt det man önskar sig. Mycket fruktig med massor av tropisk frukt, Ganska söt maltkropp och en måttlig beska. Bra balans, lång eftersmak. Drucken på Nya Tröls

treadyroc (149) - St. Leonard, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2010
Pours hazy amber w/a beige head that diminishes quickly. Good lord on the aroma... just the kind of nose that I love in a DIPA. Starts off citrus & finishes caramel. Extremely even transition. Finishes clean; no hint of alcohol. Very well done. I’d prefer a little more citrus & a little less caramel, but that’s just imo. Great stuff.

lukeherinckx (134) - mount pleasant, South Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Very nice reddish amber body with a lingering off white head. Great boozy, citrus hop notes. taste is almost identical to the aroma, except the booze is well hidden. great, slightly bitter finish. one of the best imperial IPAs i’ve had in a long time.

J_man (769) - Tustin, California, USA - AUG 16, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 Original rating from 8/16/2010. The aroma from this beer is like sticking your head in a bucket of fresh hops (which I’ve been known to do on occasion)! Incredible! Tan with an orange tinge to it and a medium white head. The first sip is resiny, bitter hop goodness with grapefruit and a citrus sweetness, and black pepper on the follow through. Somehow, this isn’t as overwhelming bitter as it seems like it should be even though the IBUs must be through the roof. Really well balanced with the malt for this style, you get a woody, roasted undertone to the hops. This is something special! Update: This time the aroma was less fresh hops and more tire rubber and skunky cannabis, but still a wonderful smell! Actually tastes like you dropped some hop leaves in the glass and then chewed them while taking a drink.

Damico (2787) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2010
The aroma is super hoppy and pleasant in your nose, floral notes. The appearance of pure amber with a creamy white head on top. The body is thicker with full on hop flavor and a long after taste. The ABV comes through for sure at 9.75.

50belair (2754) - Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Bottle shared with Hopscotch. Another great Mikkeller beer. The pour was a hazy orange with a small white head. Nice hoppy aromas. A deceiving 9.75% DIPA. Good balance with just enough hops to give you that IPA bite I love. Flavors of grapefruit and resin are held up by a sweet malt backbone that makes this an easy sipper.

11.2 oz bottle. Hazy orange brown with a spongy white head. Nose is pineapple, mango, cat pee, and candi. Resiny medium body with a tingle. Taste is grapefruit, orange peel, bitter grass and melon. Lingering pine buzz. Good for a hop fix.
