4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark golden brown appearance with almost no head. Full bodied with tastes of toffee, vanilla, nuts, caramel, alcohol, raisin and wood perfectly balanced with a great hoppy aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Visual: Their signature plain label with just the Ø, but the true excitement is inside. Pours murky root beer brown with a very small head, a thin layer of micro retention, a few micro slow streams here and there.
Nose: aromatic caramel+toffee sweet malt (lvl-7)-pungency
Attack: alcoholic crisp
Mid-palate: (lvl-7)-sweetness, (MAIN) caramel malt, toffee, nutty, brandy
Finish: subtle soft bitter hops, malty sweet smooth finish.
Summary: This drinks way too smooth for a 10%. Not much bitterness for an IPA, tastes like a strong amber. Good taste:$$$ ratio.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Pours copper coloured, with light head. Hoppy, floral, caramel, citrus. Boozy. Everything you’d wish for. Bitter finish with the hops lasting long. Medium to heavy body. Massive beer. An absolute must try. And try. And try...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. What can one say? This is an imperial variety of an imperial ipa - in all aspects of that term. Divine.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark hazy orange with a small white head. Big aroma of dark fruits. Taste follows the nose with a small bit of hoppy bitterness. This bottle got lost in the mix so it may be a little old but regardless, the flavor is unique when compared to other DIPA’s. A little booziness is starting to be present as it warms. Would like to try a new bottle if I can find one but this old one is still good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 27, 2015 0,5l bottle. Second rating. First one left me disappointed as I was expecting a lighter brew. This time I was prepared. Amber. Slightly off-white, two-fingered head. Lovely hoppy aroma with sweet yeasty tones. Taste is heavy on the alcohol, but the aftertaste is fruity and nice. The bitterness and hops drown somewhat in the ABV, but it’s quite pleasant. Not a cool, summer brew, though. For that I’d still go with the standard, non-Imperial IPA from Nøgne Ø.
