This beer is probably better than my score but I have trouble with this style of beer. This one is very well done. Not really over-the-top bitterness, probably a lot of late hopping as there was a TON of citrusy/catty hop aroma and flavor. I could not finish a 16 oz serving. Too much of a good thing perhaps.

Bue en bouteille de 66cl chez moi, couleur blonde mousse onctueuse qui ne tombe absolument pas, effervescence moyenne, attaque super forte au nez sur le pamplemousse et l’ananas en bouche même attaque puis sur la mirabelle et la pêche continuité résineuse avec une fin sur les herbes et le citron frais, au top !

Bue en bouteille. Énorme nez houblonné ! Au palais amertume équilibrée à souhait. L'IPA qu'on aime quoi ;)

Lukasmh (250) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle, really mice cap! Pours hazy orange with frothy off-white head, quite rocky. Aroma is resin, pine, bready malts, Mellon and exotic fruits. Taste is exotic fruits, pine, grape, melon, lemon candy. Very resinous and oily hoppy mouth feel. Long bitter finish with some elderflower and dry.

MrBunn (2511) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Bomber. Pours a hazy orange/gold with a very large fizzy head. Aromas of pine and grapefruit dominate the nose and those flavors are full on across the palate as well. This beer has a great balance between hope and malt and drinks more like an IPA than a double in terms of that balance. Malt is definitely not in the drivers seat. Very very nice to see this in the store here in PA.

Alexanderdahl (24) - DENMARK - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy orange.Aroma is very piney strong bitternes. Little melon sweetness. Taste is strong, bitter hops, but latches into a smooth fruity and dry finish. Nice orangy notes and so dry, itll make you lunge for a glass of water! Yes!

Nice double ipa with the typical notes of citra and chinook hops, ripe fruits, tropical fruits, ending very bitter with some astringency in the aftertaste.

Davros (2041) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2014
Pours amber with a small head. Nose shows loads of clean malt, pine and resinous hops. Flavours include more resinous piny hops, sweet clean malt and an assertive but balanced bitterness.

teddybeer (2353) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 6, 2014
Hazy golden color with a frothy and creamy white head with good retention and nice lacework. Aroma has notes of pine, some resins, citrus notes and tropical fruits. Flavor is moderate bittery, very fruity and fresh, tangerine and citrus are present, good pine hints. The final has a decent bitterness, very fresh and vaery drinkable.
