It’s a hazy yellow color with a poof of white foam. Even though it’s well before the best buy date, I’m not sensing the "bountiful hop aroma" as promised. It does have a slight pleasant lemon aroma up front. Bountiful and complex bitter hop flavors and a substatial malt backbone are what make this beer worthwhile, if not quite worth the price tag.

Translucent orange with a quickly dissipating white head. Heavy citrus aroma, grapefruit and orange, grass and flowers. Alcohol and bitterness are very present. Dry hops, sweet and sour citrus.

Orange clear beer with white dense head leaving lots of lacing. Aroma has sweet tropical ftuits, resin, grapefruit and caramelly sweetness. Flavor is very hoppy bitter, resinous and grapefruity. Palate is quite full and fluffy with feel of bitterness. Finish has very strong bitterness. Aftertaste is dry, grapefruity, piney and soapy. One of the strongest hop loads I’ve ever tasted, most DIPA’s get mellowed out by the thicker malt backbone. The bitterness is almost violently strong. There’s a bit of the annoying bitter caramelliness I dislike about American IPAs, which drops a few points. Still, a very enjoyable IPA.

hoppybeerlover (163) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014
Distinctive tea like aroma and flavor. Great orangey sweetness in the flavor as well as a strong grapefruit bitterness in the finish. It’s a shame it’s 7 % because this would be one of my everyday beers

Bork (241) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Heavy hop bitterness dominates from start to finish but manages to keep a perfect balance between pine and citrus. This one is to write home about.

dagimp (725) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle at Bar Liberte in Philly. Drank from the bottle. Pungent, dank aroma. Lots of citrus rind. Mouthfeel is very carbonated and slightly sticky. Taste is grapefruit rind all the way. Very bitter. Nothing subtle about this. Hops are the only thing going on with this beer. No pretext of balance, but that’s OK sometimes. Pretty decent and I’d drink again. But I wouldn’t drink often.

Privatimporterad flaska genom Great Brands. Strålande vacker i sin tungt dimmiga bärnsten, ingen jästfällning här inte. Lite klent skum kanske, men va fan gör det? Mäktig humledoft av kåda men mycket citrusfrukt framförallt. Är dock lite besviken på smaken, fin sötma av grape och mango, beskan välbalanserad men den känns tunn! Här hade de kunnat fläska på lite mer. Överlag en jättefin IPA dock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
