Patjeadam (67) - - MAR 18, 2014
First smell clear tropical fruits. First taste: smooth, tropical fruits, refreshing. You wonder if it really is 9 percent. The bitter is very balanced. It also has that typical ij aftertaste. For a double ipa incredibly smooth. Not a long aftertaste, but after every sip you come back for more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

bytemesis (3956) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle thanks to Nikos. Pours hazy orange with a small beige head that dissipates fairly quickly with some lacing. Aroma is caramel, pine, melon. Flavor is medium sweet, light plus bitter, melon, grapefruit, pine, bread, caramel. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. A bit aged, methinks, but holding up well.

Bottle. Color dark orange with small white head. Aroma malts, fruits, peaches. Taste fruity, floral, spicy, hoppy.

KyotoLefty (6964) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle from Taniguchi. Big nose of grapefruit, orange, minerals. Dry and metallic. Pretty orange-amber with lace. Sweet citrus and caramel, bitter finish. Very sweet in a 7-Up way, then harsh and bitter. Out of balance. Cloying. Weird. Not impressed.

maekchu (2500) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Piney hop nose, a bit earthy, some tropical fruit, and caramel. Dark reddish/orange color, thin head, and fat-bubble lace. Citrusy, thick fruit initial, with mango, orange, lemon. Serious hopping kicks in. Sweetness intensifies in late mid and final. Medium-heavy body, warm on the tongue. Very flavorful, a bit cloying in mid. Bold nose. Maybe a little too thick on the palate.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2014 A great collaboration. Perfect amber with beatiful white head. Very rich and fresh aroma of fruits, citrus, pine needles. It already filled the room before I finished pouring it. Taste is built of very well balanced bitterness with light malty background. Surprisingly drinkable, very enjoyable beer.

Fuerte carácter. Amarga intensa pero camuflada por intensa presencia alcohólica. Excelente.

McNeillR (1567) - SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2014
Soft haze, burnt golden, neat ringed white head. Bright gummy clementine nose. Matching initial taste, clean and smashing bitterness. Clean break carbonation. Finishes steely bitter mango.

Bottle, Independence Tasting, Cheers BenH
