Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Smells of melon, tropical fruit, the bubblegum I get from the FFF ale yeast. Taste is similar: lots of fruity hops up front, faint bubblegum, the bitterness follows. Some of the fruitiness lasting into the finish. A nice, underlying sweetness that supports a medium bitterness, though far from a sweet DIPA. Slightly soft mouthfeel, medium bodied, average carbonation; bitter finish.

Pours an attractive heavy orange with a two finger head that laces well. Taste is orange, apricot, grapefruit and pine. Very hoppy but not over the top. Excellent imperial IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A: Grapefruit, dandelions, mango, passionfruit T: taste follows nose, get some anise as well. O: Expected a lot more hops! Quite sweet. Too old? Very nice anyway. Really enjoy it, but pretty overpriced in Sweden.

napdynmite (79) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Big hop punch but none of the citrus or pine featured in other DIPAs. Expect more burnt caramel/orange candy. Beautiful nose and some stickiness. Watch that ABV, it’ll sneak up on you...

Advocate_Ames (493) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Pours a hazy reddish orange with a good head that dissipates and sticks to my glass. The aroma is nicely hopped. I picked up on spicy, tangerine and tropical citrus, and pine notes from the hops. I enjoyed the sweet scents and malty backbone too. While drinking I noticed a sweet malty flavor with a defined citrus taste. There is a good moderate bitterness that creeps with intensity to be more profound in the finish but yet fades nicely. As for my palate it was impacted but I rather enjoyed the damage done. Overall a great beverage and a very drinkable potent ipa. Find this one fresh and it is worth every sip.

kathouse (1218) - Nevada, USA - APR 29, 2015
Now this is a delicious beer. Cloudy orange with a thick long lasting head. Citrus, pine, and light fruit nose. Tangerine, mango, orange hop flavors with a perfectly balanced caramel and bready malt body. Love the balance on this and a great hop aftertaste.

RichTheVillan (4186) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2015
Bottle from Mikkeller Webshop; hazy light copper pour with a frothy beige head, assertive hop aroma with a hint of tannic acid, taste has tropical hop action comprising mango, grapefruit, tangerine, some sweet caramel but not cloying, hint of pine, right amount of bitterness, delightful. It was expensive but worth it.

Dark golden pour. Lacing white head. Lemon citrus pine hop nose. Flavor of intense bitterness. Finishes with same hops as the aroma with lingering hop bitterness.

Homer321 (2555) - Melboring, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2015
Holy hell. Bottle from a chicargo dood. Nose is super citrus. Just a ton of orange followed by lemon. Lightly cloudy orange pour with a small white head. Taste is like an orange and lemon explosion up from followed by a firm bitterness. After that there is a large alcohol warming. Overall the hips are exsquisite but the alcohol hotness detracts. Overall still a hop Bomb!

Pours hazy orange as a super hopped up imperial IPA should by my book. The aroma doesn´t assault you as one could expect with an 100+IBU American one. It´s not subtle though once you put your nose to the glass. Nice pine and citrus, very dank as it should too. Taste is not as bitter as i expected, good thing though as i find the only bitter ones to often disappoint. This one instead builds it taste on the super piney and resinous tones with citrus to back it up. Great Imperial in it´s style. Bottle from Mikkeller webshop
