Orange colour with a white head. Hoppy and fruity flavour. A bit weak flavour. Imperial DIPA? hmm. Well anyway a nice and tasty beer. Fruity and hoppy flavour. A nice malty background.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 (Bottle). The scent is a bit vague, but with many clear flavors such as fruit, raisins and alcohol. The taste is soft, and somewhat vague as the smell, but it also has a distinct flavor of hops, caramel malt, pine, citrus and alcohol. This is a bit "tricky" beer because there are many nice flavors in it, but many are quite hard to find. But I like it!

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bra kropp och mycket smak men ändå behagligt balanserad. Smaken är lite annorlunda gentemot vad jag druckit tidigare, inte sämre bara annorlunda. Slutsats: spännande och god.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Kind of "meh" for a DIPA. Pours clear orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is lightly floral, citric, fresh. Definitely hops, but not as present or rich as I would have preferred. Taste is similarly a bit weak, only lightly hoppy and bitter in the start (but not a lot of body), turning more bitter towards the finish. Body is fairly light, with a fair bit of carbonation. Abrupt finish.

aromas are there but not much. some citrus, slight caramel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Deep red clear colour, with a nice creamy head. Aroma is dominated of sweet maltynes, dusty, citrus, fruits, orange peal.
Flavor had creamy mouth feeling of sweet maltynes, a bit caramelly(?) dry hopy ending with a nice balanced mediumbody, sweet maltynes. This is an Dubbel IPa I want to try in taped from a cask. Can Imagine it will have a little moore complexity then. Enyway, well done!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear, dark amber liquid with medium, foamy off-white head. Looks like a DIPA should. Aroma of grass, citrus, tropical fruit (mango, pineapple), soap, grapefruit, caramel, lemongrass and some cereal/bready malt. Not as pungent as I like my DIPAs, a bit too laid back. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of marmalade, tangerine, candy and caramel. Some pine as well. Nice taste, though a bit metallic bitterness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation and a little too light mouthfeel. OK DIPA, but I would prefer more hops in the aroma and a bit thicker mouthfeel.
