Bottle poured into a tulip. Amber color with medium white head that dissipates quickly. Has a sticky, sweet aroma mixed with citrus. Taste is pine and resin with melon and floral notes thrown in. Great balance as well. An excellent beer overall.

Can from Bursprak. Thanks buddy! Light hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma is very dank, citra, lots of fresh citrus, orange peel, lemon zest, hops, light herbal. Taste is peachy, dank, hops, citrussy, grassy, lingering hop bitterness. Damn, this is fresh!

Tallboy can from Robert K. Poured a chil hazed bright yellow gold with an average sized frothy bright white head. Aroma is dank hops, rotting citrus, tropical fruit rinds, sugary orange marmalade on top of medium toast. Bigger body with some lingering heat and an almost chewy mouthfeel that finishes dry and leaves a long lasting aftertaste. Flavor is great, older grapefruit, tangerine, lime, dry toast crusts, tropical fruit skins, dank hops, wet pine needles and dough. Great beer.

Vestergaard (947) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2015
Can thanks to Bursprak. Pours a clear golden with a smooth, big, white head. Aroma is really hoppy and fruity. Pineapple, citrus, grape fruit peel, lime juice, hop juice, citra. Pretty little and pale malt presence. Taste is pineapple-sweet and overall very fresh fruity with a nice, bitter finish. Really good and fresh!

Ericular (802) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Pours a murky pale gold with lasting ring of head and fine-grained lacing. Aroma is very nice, with berries and tropical fruits, bright and sweet overall. Taste is sweet caramel up front, staying fresh as it dries in the middle, bringing some pine resin and some assertive bitterness. Dry and sticky finish, with the ABV becoming more evident as it gets heavier in the end. Ratebeer says 9%, this can says 8%... overall this is a strong, full, hoppy DIPA.

Wow, plein de houblon au nez, bouquet immensément complexe. Fruit de la passion, ananas, pêche, zeste d’oranges... Tout aussi aromatique en bouche. Houblons peut-être un peu affaiblis par le temps, mais tout aussi riche. Entrée de bouche plutôt fruitée, puis malté rappelant le sucre d’orge suivi d’un arrière goût plein d’amertume qui remplie le palais.

Canned. Very yellow clear pour white head. Pleasant citrus and pine and resin. Dry finish. Very good.

jahshuwuh (496) - USA - AUG 9, 2015
Dull golden orange with ample fluffy white head. Smells of grass, dank, onion, some citrus, caramel malt, cantaloupe. Taste is a dank hop bitter, pine, followed by a good amount of honey biscuit. The hop bitter follows from beginning to finish, fairly intense but balanced. After a few sips you notice the caramel malt more. Reminds me a little of hopslam. Enjoyed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerBunker (940) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2015
16oz can. Pours murky orange with a frothy white head. Nice head retention. Aroma is of hops, caramel, and pine. Taste is slightly hoppy with some pine. Definitely bitter. Has a caramel malt backbone. Lingering bitter taste. Not very hoppy, but still very bitter. Mouthfeel is medium and sticky. I really didn’t care for this one.

Great DIPA. Smooth and easy drinking with no noticeable alcohol. Well balanced malt and hops. Mild slightly sweet with minimal bitterness.

2015 can. Taste starts with the sweet caramel malt that morphs into toffee before transforming into citrus and pine. Big and full but well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
