Bottle. Pours a hazy orange-amber with a foamy white head that lingers. Hoppy aroma, sweet and crisp, with citrus, yeast, malt, and a bit of soap. Taste is bitter and refreshing, of citrus hops, flowers, grass, malt. Lingering bitterness. Very nice.

Palme (3013) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 22, 2014
0.65l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. Yeah, looks quite good this with a orangy near glowing cloudy body under a big really lacing off-white head. On the nose I get a near flourish hoppy bitterness with tones of citrus, grains, bitter grapefruit or even as far as pommelo perhaps? The bottle is not completely fresh, but it smells alright for an old bottle. Nice gliding oily mouthfeel with a soft to average carbonation level. I like the hoppy balance here. It has a great double IPA bitterness, lots of it actually. Really grassy and almost a bit pungent perhaps? Someone mentioned medicinal bitterness, and I’m almost tempted to agree. Well, this is one of those I will try again when I get a chance. 23.10.2013

jjgmd (1228) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2014
Bomber with Z... pours a dark burnt orange color with a small white head. Nose is bitter sweet with citrus and light pine and resin. Taste is bitter with strong pine and tropical fruits, with mango and papaya. Finish is bitter sweet and ends on the same tasting notes and with a mild to moderate lingering. Solid DIPA. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Pours a cloudy golden orange with a white head and aroma of hops and citrusy fruits. Taste is fruity sweet, of hops, citrus, grapefruit, light caramel with a big bitter, dry finish. Nice IPA

Vignale (1812) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2014
Delad flaska på Bishop Arms, Gustav. Stram med tydligt orange citrusfokus. Apelsinblommor, apelsinskal, resin. Torr, stram, lätt örtig kryddighet, kalksten, mintkaramell, en hel del knäck (mariannekonfekt). Mycket lång kraftig eftersmak som jag tycker är ölets främsta kvalité nu när det inte var purfärkst. Riktgt gott.

Sampled from 650mL bottle. Poured into pint glass. Three finger head with cloudy golden appearance. Aroma of resin and orange blossom. Strong taste of orange peel, orange juice, slightly acidic and sweet. Outstanding IPA!

PhatB420 (602) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bomber into a 24oz stemmed ommegang glass. Pours a shaded apricot, hazy orange meshing. Head is super large, almost jumps out the glass on the pour, full, thick, and solid. 3inch head with solid and nice cream lacing. Aroma is sweet orange, canteloupe, pine, resin, and beautiful hops just spiraling everywhere. Taste is dry orange slices that are sugared, sweet nectar, piney backbone, fresh hops, more hops, and minor floral qualaties. Very enjoyable drinker, a fresh gliding of hops persists a each take, mouthfeel is punchy citrus sweet then dry and bitter then finishes hoppy and sweet, Excellent

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22oz bottle. The beer pours to deep golden color with a very thick white head. The aroma has stone fruit & mango flavors. The taste has strong bitter upfront followed by a dry bitter finish. Overall a great DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
