3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank during hurricane sandy from greenpoint Brooklyn today. Bottled 5 months ago. orange clear with a huge cream orange head, partially lasting with good lace. Aroma is floral, mango, pine, pungent funk, and honey. Flavor is very bitter almost from the start after a brief fruity and malty sweetness; goes herbal and spicy, then tries to be astringent. But the body is very soft and velvet with full active carbonation. Long lasting. I?m surprised it seems to have held up so well but maybe that should be expected from such a big IIPA. A real pleasure and very drinkable.

Big shared bottle at Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Honey malts and tropical fruit hops aroma. Heavy sweetness, Full bodied alco warmth and a piny bitterness that strikes, balances and persists. Hazy golden body and a white film. Somehow it felt wrong to spend valuable time finishing a big bottle of this when on a rare visit to a candy shop like Beer Temple.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy yellow gold color. Massive rocky white head. Big pine hop aroma obscures a faint caramel malt nose. Flavor upfront is a big mash up of butterscotch toasted malt, sweet tropicals, vanilla and bitter pine hops. Noticeable warming alcohol. Grapefruit hops in mid taste. Finish is all bitter hops, long and tasty. More warming alcohol, as well.

Tung doft av gödsel, gräs, torv citrus. Balaserad smak med bett avrundas med en mycket bra beska. Underbar öl som man kan jaga för att få tag på!!!! Tror att detta är en favorit för den gode Patrik.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle into a Spiegelau tulip. From notes, July 26, 2012.
A: The smell is citrusy and pine hops with a slight malt aroma.
A: Pours a hazy orange yellow with a large head which quickly fades, minimal retention, significant lacing.
T: Smooth bready caramel malts. Lightly sweet, but extremely well balanced with huge grapefruit and zesty lemon hops. Big pine character as well. Super bitter punch shows itself later in the drink.
P: Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Formidable amount of booze bite - seems a bit raw.
O: A nice DIPA, but not superlative. Hops and alcohol could be better integrated and less oily hop after taste. Definitely on the bitter side of the spectrum. Not quite a Hoptimum but tries to be.

Bottle at Studenterbaren Aarhus. Pours grapereddish yellow with an oily, white head. Aroma of hops, earth, bitterness and quite a bit of alcohol. Taste is a little gasoline. Pine, alcohol, earth and lots of hops. Gin&Tonic-ish in the end. A little over the top for my taste!

Pours cloudy amber with a white head. Aroma is thick and fat with citrusy hops, ripe sweet fruits, some earthy notes, alcohol is there, a little bit of gasoline, resin and a malty backbone. Taste is classic american IIPA with ripe citrus fruits, big hoppy profile, orange, gasoline, mint and almost a gin-like aftertaste. Very big and powerful.
