Bottled. Orangeish golden colour with small white foamy head, leaves some slight lacing. Aroma is floral and fruity along with some slight grass and mild alcohol. Flavour is quite much the same along with some sweet malts as well as mild biscuity notes as well. Quite pleasant.

omhper (19447) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 29, 2008
Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Deep golden, almost no head. Rich perfumy grapefruity hop aroma. Really sweet. The well sized but sticky body is perfectly laquered with layer upon layer of massive aromatic hoppiness. A hop bomb with a beautiful surface hiding a less than perfect inside. Very bitter finish. Raw and simple perhaps, but forgiven.

Hazy amber beer with a good foamy white head. Palate is soft and slightly dry, the head is creamy. Rich hops with moderate bitterness. Sweetish grapefruit and orange marmalade. Smooth, almost creamy, finish with a little aniseed alcohol. Another very tasty brew from the mighty Southern Tier.

fiulijn (14744) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2009
UPDATED: APR 25, 2011 2010-05-19, draught at Plan B, Copenhagen, 8-4-8-5-15=40
Cloudy golden color; small creamy head. Strong aroma, fruity hops, some milk cream too, peanut butter. Quite good body strength, candy-like sweetness, sweet toffee flavor, light butter, a bit too creamy; strong hopping, bitter oranges and resins. Strong ending bitterness. A bit chaotic, not as good as in the bottle, strangely.

2009-06-05, bottle, 8-5-9-5-18=45
Beautiful copper color; huge head; nice lace. Very nice aroma, hoppy, fruity and creamy, like fresh milk cream; notes of chamomile. Delicious caramel and toffee flavor, quite sweet; it has a good body structure and a dynamic mouthfeel; the bitterness is strong but never oppressive, the hop brings good oils, some resins and fruits (sweet oranges); the final is unusually sweet (and fruity) compared to the average Double IPA, perfectly balancing the hops. Powerful, drinkable, dangerous. Excellent.
