3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thanks to Santa. Pours hazy pale / light amber with white head. Aroma: so much caramel. Herbal hops, citrus, earth and soap. Sweet aroma. Taste: Orange-creamsicle. Lavender lends a bathroom soap character to it. Moderate sweetness and moderate bitterness, but overall flavor lingers. Full body, creamy, almost sticky texture, with soft carbonation. Overall: This works pretty well as a sweet, hoppy barley wine. But they market it as a "not normal" double IPA. The thing is, a double IPA that’s this sweet and sticky is usually just ... a not good double IPA. So to say you made this "not normal" double IPA intentionally this way doesn’t really do you any favors in my book.

Bottle from unknown via Kyler B. Pours a hazy orange, decent amount of head. Aroma crisp and citrusy, with a slightly yeast/floor malt backing. Body thick and rich, finish very crisp with a slight spicy/resin character. Wow. Exceptional!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2011 bottle, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a hazy yellow with a decent sized head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is lightly sweet with plenty of grassy and herbal hops. It’s also got fruity elements, most particularly citrus rind.
The flavor is lightlysweet with piety of honey and citrus. The beer is moderately bitter and far boozier than I’d prefer it to be.
Fun, not really my bag, but fun.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour’s a nice golden color with a nice head. Citrusy aroma and tastes exactly not like that. More bitter than citrusy and I don’t know what milk sugar taste like so I can’t say it taste like that. Malty, a little grassy. Overall not bad, definitely different but good. Hides the alcohol pretty well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaske, 65 cl. Tak til Martin - du er en god nabo! Uklar, orange og klistret med en vag, off white skumdannelse. Sød appelsin og masser af humle. Voldsom sødlig malt og voldsom humlet, men god balance. For heftig ABV og for sticky til at jeg kan drikke mere end 5 cl af den...not really my thang
