NielsenRatings (8275) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle @ Brad’s house Minneapolis, courtesy of some generous trader in Sweden. Thanks to Uncle Chris for transporting this back to the US. Pours a hazy, yellow orange appearance with a cream colored head. Rich pale malty, citrusy, big grapefruity, a bit spicy, very mildly oxidized aroma. Tangy, rich grapefruity, a touch tart lemon/tangerine/mango fruity, lightly bitter, rich sweet malty flavor. Pretty tasty and I’m sure it would be even better fresh. In all honesty, I didn’t expect this to have held up nearly this well.

12 ounce bottle from Timo, poured an orangish color with aromas of grapefruit, oranges, light apricot, and some caramel. Flavors are strong citrus/tropical fruit, light caramel, and a decent bitter aftertaste. Timo you are the man for giving me this beer as an extra!

Kanske den bästa dubbel IPA Sverige lyckats få fram. Givetvis typiska Oppigårds smaken framträdande med fin blommig fruktig doft. Smsken mycket grape å rejäl fin beska. Mer Oppigård tack.

Lilja (1394) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2012
Kan inte får nog. Den bästa svenska DIPA:n. Mycket citrus och passionsfrukt. Frisk, humlig och syrlig. Välbalanserd med bra beska. Fantastisk.

Big thanks to tkrjukoff for this one as a bonus. Cheers, Timo! Pours a hazy, opaque orange with a white head. Nose is orange flesh, honey, apricot, and plenty of caramel. Flavor is similar- citrus all over- apricot, honey, grapefruit, orange, and some slight alcohol. Very enjoyable DIPA, full-bodied overall with lingering grapefruit into the finish.
