Pours a hazy dark orange color with a thin white head. Smell like citrus fruit punch, notes of grapefruit, tangerine and orange peel with a little hint floral. Taste like tropical citrus fruit and sweet caramel malt that actually balance very well the punch of the hops. At the end have a nice short bitter whit a hint of sneaked alcohol. This is a really nice IIPA. Awesome beer.

DocJitsu (1127) - Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Pours a very hazy yellow-golden color with a 1-inch antique white head. Head retention is better than average. Pungent resinous, skunky, citrusy hop nose with slight notes of cannabis. Coating on the tongue and mildly astringent. Flavor’s approxinate the aromas. Good malt backbone without getting overly expressed.

danlo (1443) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015
330ml bottle from Mikkeller webshop. Hazy orange amber colour, frothy white foam head leaving lacing and aroma of orangey citrus & pine hop. Taste is malt, caramel with floral fruity citrus pine & hop resin bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry tangy bitter finish. Nicely drinkable.

Mi sarei aspettato molto di piů. Le aspettative erano altre. Forse la bottiglia era andata a male ma questo č: Schiuma beige cremosa, fine e di poca persistenza. Il colore č un dorato opalescente, leggermente torbido. Al naso viene fuori il suo difetto maggiore. Oltre la compulsiva presenza e invadenza del luppolo citra viene fuori un sentore molto nauseante, di lievito stantio. Questo č la sua pecca maggiore. Al palato risulta perň essere molto armoniosa, con corpo medio a tratti oleoso, con prevalenti sentori di malto e caramello. Al palato le note citriche sono presenti ma non invadenti, con un netto sentore di pompelmo e lievemente di mango. Sorso molto secco con retrogusto assai persistente ma non sgradevole con un ottimo amaro, ancora sentore di pompelmo e leggermente resinoso. Da riprovare

Pour on tap, clear dark orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice orange peel, grapefruit, citrusy notes into some slight pine, touch of grass into some caramel. Taste was a mix of big citrus, yeast, some grapefruit into a bit of pine, herbal notes, touch of bread and caramel, finishing bitter.

It poured a cloudy orange color with a large white head. The aroma was dry, with lots of complex piney hops and biscuity malts. The taste was very fruity and dry with tropical fruits. Nice.

vyvvy (4470) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Pours milky dull orange with an off-white head. The aroma has heavy tangerine, grapefruit, light pine, heavy caramel malt, but the hops are still in the front. It has a full rich thick body with lots of soft carbonation. The flavor starts with the aroma notes, but heavier on the grapefruit and more thick chewy malt. The finish has lots of grapefruit, pine and spice. Really nice IIPA.

Bottle. Hazy orange/amber pour with dense and thick offwhite head. Aroma has lots of fruits and citrus. Full taste with significant bitterness without becoming too much. Good balance between the sweet and bitter. Slightly burning feeling in the throat afterwards. Lovely but for sure not for the masses
