COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This complex double India pale ale has an intense citrus and floral hop aroma balanced by a velvety malt body which has been augmented with lactose milk sugar. With this different take on an IPA we have brewed an ale that is both pleasing to drink and, once again, “not normal.” Cheers! 100 IBU 11.0%ABV (used to be 9.5%)

Fantastic. Very fruity aroma. Taste full of fruit notes but they do not hide the maltiness too much (or the lactose sugar). Full body.

ansalon (1391) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2014
On tap at Mikkeller Bar, Stockholm. Pours golden amber with a low white head. Aromas of peach, mango, apricot, hay, grapefruit, resin. Taste is peach, mango, grapefruit, slight caramel and honey notes. Aftertaste is pure tropical fruit. Mouthfeel is smooth and somewhat resinous with medium carbonation. Just a very very good DIPA.

omhper (19378) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2014
Keg at Mikkeller Bar, Stockholm. Cloudy pale amber, small head. Sweaty dough and tropical fruits. Sweet with full body and rounded mouthfeel. Sugar and doughy malt, pine, grapefruit and passionfruit. Fruity and massive. Really bitter finish. Heavy.

Mindwarp (53) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2014
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.

Habanero (2624) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2014
Tap. Deep golden body with an average, lacing, off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, peach and pine. Sweet flavor that ends up dry bitter and with alcohol. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A great DIPA

Skinnyviking (7062) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2014
Draught at Mikkeller Bar. Low but lasting off-white head. Hazy dark amber body. Fruity aroma with an unpleasant note of detergents. Sweet fruity flavor with a good deal of hops bitterness and a hint of alcohol. Low carbonation. Long sweet finish.

Look: pours a hazy light orange. Off white head. Smell: sweet citrus fruit. Sweet almost sugary aroma. Tangerine. Lemon. Tropical fruit. Passion fruit. Grapefruit. Taste: tangerine. Bitterness up front. Lemon. Slight pine. Grapefruit. Feel: slightly dry. Leaves a film on the mouth. Medium carbonation. Overall: great beer. Love the aroma. Nice mix of bitterness and fruit. First drank: home 8/24/14

Prufrockstar (960) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2014
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.

JanLaursen (3088) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2014
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

revolution2718 (229) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours a hazy orangey golden. Nose is candy sugar, citrus, oranges, floral hops, lemon, herbal/minty, bready malt. Taste is hops, sweet candy sugar, some bready malt backbone, sweet orange citrus, candied orange peel, a bitter hop strange aftertaste lingers forever. The lactose sugar may be the oddity that is there on the finish. Creamy full mouthfeel, 11 percent hidden well. It pretty much tastes like a very hoppy DIPA, nose and mouthfeel are very good , taste leaves a bit to be desired. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
