Draught @ Flying Saucer, Addison.
Clear dark amber, lil’ head.
Slight peppery nose, red fruit. Sweet start, rosebud. Boozy, herby and hoppy full-bodied beer. Well balanced, as Mikkel makes them...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Mikkeller in Copenhagen. Hazy dark brown appearance with ample off-white head. Nose and flavour is basement sweet caramel malts balanced by a substantial resinous dry hop bitterness that lingers but does not overpower. Medium bodied with a slick texture and average carbonation. A very fine DIPA.

4.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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."
