Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2010
On tap. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head leaving laces. Fresh and flowery hops in the nose. Medium body, very fruity and flowery with an extremely hoppy and dry finish. Bitter indeed. The driness makes this beer highly drinkable. 200910

Zymurgeist2 (1055) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Out of the cask at Gourmet Haus in Redwood City. Pours a brilliant sunset orange with a slightly taupe head that is slightly rocky yet also cloud-like. Citrusy hops surprisingly jump off the nose with undertones of earth permeating - a lot of well balanced hops here. Taste predominates with malt backbone, the bitterness of the hops follows through the mid-to-late palate. The bold hop aroma shows itself more through bitterness than flavour. Taste is less balanced than the aroma let on. Mouthfeel is high alcohol and coating, with some chewy bread at the end.

Bottle @ BeerBiker/Scheffel’s 100 countires celebration. Pours hazy orange with a small creamy white head and lacings. Nose is hops. Peach and orange. Flavor is hoppy grapefruit and peach. Medium bodied. Dry hoppy end.

GuillaumeCL (343) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy orange with nearly no head. Smell is all hops, lots of spruce, pine, and a tiny bit of citrus, maybe also a slight sweetness. Palate is on the thicker side of medium bodied with soem sharp carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet and bitter at first with the sweetness rounding out the bitterness, but then it gives way to a slight different, much strong and longer lasting bitterness. The aftertaste is all bitter and goes on for ages.

solidfunk (4193) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Smells very rich in fruity hops. Pours cloudy orange with good head between creamy and foamy. Decent lacing. Taste is very bitter from hops and the booze is hard to detect. A little malt in the aroma as well. Bottle.

SlackerMads (1658) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle shared with pentaz. Clear light copper with small staying off white head. Aroma is caramel, butterscotch, light citrus and pine. Taste is sweet with caramel, butterscotch. Finish is long and bitter. Dominated by caramel malt, could use a stronger hop profile for my taste, but still nice. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation.

pmuzz (400) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2013
Tap at the Wheatsheaf: solid beer, good flavours with a lovely oily mouthfeel. However, just not as good as other DIPA by Nogne.

Advocate_Ames (442) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2013
The two captains looks lovely. A nice foam head. There is an earthy pine scent, with hops, citrus, and malts. I taste hops, citrus, sweet malts, and barley. The drink has a mild bitterness mixed with a slight malty sweetness. Overall it is a good brew. It will impact the palate mildly too.

Bottle. Pours cloudy orange. Aroma of pine, citrus. Taste is sharp hops, sweet and syrupy. Solid double ipa, though not amongst the best.
