4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Since Dogfish 90 left our market I have been looking for an intensely hoppy IPA with a good malt backbone. I have found it. This beer pours a nice orange colr with an off white small head. The aroma is intensely hoppy with high notes of pine. The beer has significant citrus/gapefruit tast but finishes nicely balanced. Excellent palet . Worth the money.

pours hazy gold with white head. aroma of sweetness: caramel and raisins, some floral and sweet fruit hops. tastes bitter with a slightly sweet finish. pine and grapefruit hop tones with a touch of syrup. palate is full bodied, with the right amount of carbonation (which is to say: very little carbonation). overall a strong and bitter brew.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet.
Glowing brass/tea. V ery forceful hops. Oilsy, vetables, but enough bitter kick to cut through. OVer the top, as it is supposed to be. A wee bit too much, even for me.

Bottle. Hazy golden body, vanishing white head. Aeoma of citrus, resin, pine. Taste of grapefruit, bread, spices. High bitterness, dry finish. This beer is all about hops without being overdone. Nice one!

Bottled. Pours lightly hazy and deep golden with little, lacing and off-white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus fruits, pine and peachy notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and solid bitter. Medium bodied, oily text. and soft carb. An excellent 2xIPA.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2013 Bottle. The thing that lets this beer down is a medicinal taste mid finish. Other than that it finishes well and has a sweet alcoholic aroma.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Murky rust with a short head. Aroma is marmalade. Flavour is intense, very intense, one for the hop heads. A face sucker, nicely done if that is your thing, lots of flavour, character, etc... but a tough beer if you ain’t.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a clear rusty orange color with a nice, white frothy head. Strong, hoppy aroma with a citrus kick. Amazing taste. Thick hops with caramel in the finish. Some malt, but an amazing tart hop kick. Easily the best beer from SN.
