esox (1098) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2014
Bottled. Hazy pale amber color, frothy head. Huge hop aroma: ripe/fermented peaches and plums, gooseberry, grapes and a hint of orange and flowers. Somewhat rich and dryish base malt flavor, slightly yeasty, loads of fruity hop juices. Slightly grapefruity yet round and mouthfilling bitterness. No resins. Long aftertaste is a bit sweet. Fresh herbal hop notes in the late finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Good stuff.

TheCametron (1863) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours Orange with a pillowy White head. Aroma of tropical fruit. Paw-Paw, Pineapple and Pine. Great combination of face slapping hop character and syrupy malt sweetness. Delicious levels of bitterness. What a beer. What a range.

Fin (7620) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2014 Had this in bottle picked up at Brewdog online, consumed at home Thursday 18th September 2014 Pours a robust gold/orange with large sticky white head. Wonderfully sweet tropically nose, soft carbonation. This is wonderful with a slick almost syrupy textured mouthfeel. Supremely hoppy, buzzy, zappy, fresh tropical fruits. Its lovely, really lovely.

wvhoran (356) - Tasmania, - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle. Deep hazy orange with a large creamy off-white head. The aroma is fresh and fruity with lots of dank hop notes, resinous, fruity, a little caramel malt. The flavour is very fruity with lots of ’orange’ fruits (peaches, orange, mango, apricot) and floral notes. Resinous hop oils. Delicious. This is so good. I am happy to be alive.

Bottle. Hazy dark golden with white head. In aroma malty base with hoppy notes - grapes, tropical fruits, pine. In taste nice malty base, hoppy flavours, medium to high bitterness. The beer is full bodied, medium carbonated. Very good IIPA, well done Mikkeller.

Alexd8 (34) - Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 6, 2014
Couleur ambré, déclinaison orange, un couché de soleil sur l’ouest... c’est beau...très trouble! Mousse absente comme toute bonne IPA. Le pamplemousse, les herbes se ribambelle entre aneth, fenouil, grain de coriandre ... une attaque poivré au début. On repart sur le gazon coupé, le foin des champs, un brin fermie. En fait c’est une culture maraichère... céleri-rave ??? Ben oui, céleri-rave, légumes racines et rutabaga. On appelle ça anisé et terreuse,, cette bière. On mâche et la mousse reste ultra-discrète. Les amers s’installent en milieu et fin de langue. Bien placé quoi!! La longueur caramel et réduite de la bière s’amplifie et installe la texture, l’allonge ... au final la bouche est magnifique, rafraîchissante, spectaculaire!. Campari Soda SVP! Très belle IPA. Merci bonsoir!

_angst_ (2948) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours murky orangish brown with a small frothy offwhite head that quickly dissipates while leaving a small sticky trace on the glass. Smell is fruity and malty with caramel, grapefruit juice, passion fruit, grapes, overripe gooseberries, moist grass, pine needles, orange zest, lemon zest, alcohol and diesel. Taste is sweet, bitter, fruity and malty with sweet dark bread, caramel, grapefruit juice, grapes, diesel, gooseberries, resin, pine needles, moist grass, orange zest, lemon zest and hints of alcohol. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky sweet, oily bitter, slightly astringent, slightly boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet, bitter, tiny fruity and malty with caramel, grapefruit juice, pineapple, grapes, diesel, chives, moist grass, pine needles, resin, lemon zest and alcohol. Better hop profile than the rest in this series but the base beer is still too sticky for me...
