Great amber colour and perfect head from bottle. Aroma is just subtle but smells of citrus. Taste is strong bitter but then mellows out.

Golden appearance with some head. Tastes of raisin, sweet heavy malts. Medium body, low carbonation and a finish of sweet raisin. Good beer, okay DIPA

spechtacular (62) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 13, 2016
Barwa pomarańczowa, piana niska, szybko zanikająca, piwo lekko opalizujące. Bardzo intensywny i skoncentrowany aromat owoców tropikalnych, grejpdrutów, mango oraz cytrusów. Obecne również nieco słodów. W smaku uderza najpierw słodycz owoców tropikalnych, wysoka goryczka, alkohol dobrze ukryty.

Dusty musky aroma. Fresh hop cone. Much malt wow maybe. Some spices. Fine. Delicate.

JPDIPSO (5667) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Lightly hazed amber color with a tall light beige head. Aromas of fresh oats, pale malt and thistle blossoms; some citric scents in the background. Dry and sharp are my first thought after the first quaff. Nice caramel sweetness underlying everything. Sharp citrus/acidity really grabs ones attention. Feel is interesting in that it has some heft, but the carbonation really keeps it light on the tongue. Light burn building in the back of the throat starts to reveal its strength. Some traditional IPA qualities, with an IIPA attitude. 1/11

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2016 Piękny cytrusowy szczególnie pomarańczowy aromat. Piwo mętne, ciemnozłote. W smaku też bardzo cytrusowo. Intensywna pomarańcza. Silna goryczka ale jak na DIPA jest ok. Na minus zdecydowanie alkoholowosc. Powinna być lepiej ukryta. Poza tym przyzwoicie

Holmen2 (2914) - NORWAY - AUG 12, 2016
From bottle with HF at Cardinal 12.08.16. Slightly dark golden. Fine white head and lacing. Strong aroma of tropical fruits, papaya, marmalade, dried fruits and a variety of citrus. As complex as an American IPA can be.

mice (818) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2016
Batch 937, pantu 12.3.2013. Punertavanruskea, samea olut jossa runsaasti leijailevia hiivapartikkeleita. Kiva puolen sentin pysyvä tiheä vaahtokerros oluen pinnalla. Tuoksu eksoottisen hedelmäinen ja havuinen höystettynä karamellisella maltaisella rungolla. Yllättäen havaittavissa kuitenkin myös jonkinlaista virhetuoksua: multaa/maata ja ikävää vihanneksisuutta. Maku vahvasti karamellisen maltainen. Tuoksun eksoottinen hedelmä ei ole maussa niin vahvasti esillä, vaan karamellisuus jyrää yllättävän vahvasti. Lisäksi mukana havuisuutta ja hieman greippisyyttä.Loppumaku varsin katkera ja havuisen greippinen sekä hieman tuhkainen ja tunkkainen. Suutuntuma aika täyteläinen. Ei tämä ihan täysin onnistunut tekele ole; hedelmäisyyttä olisi saanut olla enemmän ja toisaalta virhearomit olisivat saaneet jäädä pois.

500 ml bottle. Pours orange with an off-white head. Intense hoppy aroma of citric fruits with some breadish malt. Medium body. The taste is dominated by sweetness along with a medium bitterness and very balanced with honey, grapefruit and some alcohol.
