75cl bottle. Thanks to Papsoe/Ungstrup. Pours cloudy golden with a creamy white head & lacings. Nose is tropical fruity hops. Hops all over. Warm, sticky, powerful & a bit burning. Looong bitter end. Perhaps unbalanced & mega heavy - but I damm sure like it!

madmitch76 (13350) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2009
23rd August 2008. Cloudy amber beer. When very cold direct from the fridge I found the taste like a harsh barleywine - salty and grapefruit bitter. As the beer warmed up a little the bitter grapefruit was replaced by bitter orange and some peach. The saltiness remained in the background though. Intriguing.

yngwie (12612) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle, shared by papsoe. It pours an unclear, golden-orange body with a beige head. Piney, resiny, very citrusy nose with tropical fruits, sugars and beefstock. Sticky-sweet in the mouth, full-bodied, warming and almost astringent from the hops. Pine, resin, citrus, tropical fruits and a nice bitterness. The finish is of the lasting kind, with piney and resiny hops, some citrus and lots of bitterness. Actually so much hops it gets a bit challenging to drink, even for a hop-lover. The alcohol gives too much warmth I think, but the beer is really nice. (080823)

Bottled 650 ml (CK). Clear amber color, small beige head. Aroma has hops, honey and pineapple with notes of pinewood. Very sweet and honeyish IIPA. Citrus, resin and grapefruit. Bitter finish. Strong warming alcohol in the oily aftertaste. Quite powerful Double IPA.
