50cl bottle. Amber color with a medium sized white head. Fruity hoppy aroma with orange, pine and malt. Flavor is quite bitter with orange, pine, grapefruit, sweetish malt and some herbal notes. Medium bodied, bitter aftertaste.

Good medium strong aroma has caramel toffee, fruits, hoppiness. Hazy orange, beige head is thin. Taste has also slightly roasted toffee, warm alcohol, light spicyness. Full bodied, velvety soft, light carbonation, good bitter finish is medium long. Wonderful beer, fondles your mind and soul.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 (50 cl bottle courtesy of Mark, thanks!; Batch 922; Brewed on June 2nd 2013) Pours a slightly hazy amber with little, white head. Decent retention, lace and regeneration. Aroma is yeasty with notes of citrusy hops. Oily texture, medium carbonation, full body and an astringent, warming finish. Flavour is bitter and boozy with sprucy notes. Original rating from February 23rd 2013: (50 cl bottle from Den Nordiske Ølhandel; bbd: March 6th 201<illegible>) Pours a hazy amber with medium white head. Good retention and lace. Decent regeneration. Aroma is a subtle hoppy with fruity notes and an acidic hint. Oily texture, medium carbonation, full body with a warming finish. Taste is boozy with fruity notes and an astringent finish. Dipa is just not my favourite style. Girlfriend says "I like the aroma but it’s too bitter for me." Ar: 6; Ap: 3; Ta: 6; Pa: 3; O: 12

Very impressive IIPA -- nice hoppy nose and full hopped/chalked taste. This tastes like a double english ipa. Interesting. No citrus.

Flaša. Tmavo oranžová farba, krásna biela pena, dlho držala. Vôňa sladká, ovocná, jemne karamelové tóny a broskyne. Taktiež cítiť alkohol. V chuti sladkosť, kvetinové a ovocné tóny, grapefruit, trávovosť a zemitosť. Telo plné, pekná vyváženosť sladkosti a horkosti. Veľmi pitné, ale alkohol je dosť citeľný.

Flaska från Vinmonopolet i Norge. Ljus bärstensfärgad med vitt skum. Citrus och apelsin paras med maltig sötma i doften. Lätt sötma möter rivig beska som brer ut sig eftersom. Fyllig munkänsla.

500ml bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a reddish amber colour with with a nice 2cm head with solid lacing. Aroma is strong floral, with notes of pine and some tropical fruit thrown in. Taste is dry with lots of lovely tasting hops. Is a big beer but goes down easily for the alcohol level. Great beer!

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 21, 2013
Bright, hazy, tangerine pour, big rocky brilliant white head. Lots of bubble action in the glass. Looks superb. Huge nose - citrus, orange zest, orange peel, catpiss, candied fruits, sherbet sourness and some brioche from the malt character. Awesome. Intense flavour, a blast of taste up front sharp hops and buckets of the citrus and orange stuff from the aroma, middle is all sweet tongue smacking malt, followed by a huge hop hit in the finish. Lush amd smooth mouthfeel, low-low carbonation soft enough to underpin the flavours but no more. A savage beer.
