markwise (4545) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 29, 2012
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.

[Thanks to omhper]. 33cl bottle Orangish colour with a frothy, nice, creamy, good lacing and perfect lasting head. Aroma is strong floral hops with orange hints. Flavour has orange peel notes with a strong bittery taste from the beginning to the end with a appropiate duration. The aftertaste is dominated by a strong bitterness. Carbonation is medium. Body is medium.

Bottle 33cl. When I first tried this one (Batch nr1) I thought to myself - "I’ve got to buy more bottles of this one!". This is propably the best beer I drank all year 2011! Filled with Hops, Citrus and pleny of Passion(fruit). This is truly an Once in a lifetime experience. Rumours claims that Oppigårds ar planning a DIPA of their own for 2012, in the same spirit as Drakens.

CapFlu (4616) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
(33cl bottle) Courtesy of Blomster. Quick dissipating head atop a clouded orange body. Nose is very floral and sharp with Amarillo hops. Good malt base and hoppy elixir flavor. Oily. Somewhat red licorice and green leaf. Enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

heavy (2161) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 5, 2011
16/11 0.33 l bottle, courtesy of Marko, thanks for sharing! And for comforting RIP note :) Hazy orange bodied with small head. Nice aroma, herbal, pleasantly rounded with some fruity malt notes, like apples or maybe sweet orange. Nice bitterish flavor, but not too much, caramel malty. Not too heavy in body. Pleasant, long orange finish, even slightly sweetish at the end. One of the examples how IBU can be very deceptive. Quite nice beer, rounded and pleasant.

Bottled 330ml. -Courtesy of Marko (thanks!), shared with heavy and him. Murky orange coloured, medium sized off-white head, strong fruity nose with hint of alcohol. Very bitter hoppy herbal taste with notes of caramel and grapefruit. Touch of alcohol in in rather bitter finish and long-lasting bitter aftertaste.
