5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Clearing the backlog - might as well follow up the Westvleteren 12 rating with a beer I liked even better. On tap at Mikkeller & Friends, Dec 2014. Orange/gold pour with a decent off-white head. Malty, orange, caramel, mango, grapefruit - whole fruit basket aroma. Taste is similar, caramel and all those fruits, bittterness comes through later. With the ridiculous amount and quality of beer they had on tap this was the one I came back to, just fantastic, as close to perfect as I’ve ever had

Thanks cards04 for this one! I’ve been attempting to get my hands on one of these for a long time. Orange copper body with off white foamy head, good retention, nice lacing. Awesome citrus aroma, tropical fruit, maybe passionfruit, vanilla, weed, resin. Taste is perfectly balanced, not overly bitter, some pine in addition to citrus. Overall a fabulous double IPA.

Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, 14.1.2015. Dark amber. Sweetish fruitiness in the nose, rich and a little vinous. Mildly bitter taste, nettle notes, and a little sweet too. Fairly carbonated, medium body, mildly bitter finish. Cool.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy copper color, really dense and frothy white head. Grapefruit, some peach, a little mango, caramel malt, and resin. Moderate amount of malty sweetness followed by pine bitterness. Smooth, carb is a little stifled by the oiliness, and medium-bodied. A bit of booziness in the long bitter finish.

22 oz bomber into a pint a little to quickly. A cloudy light orange color and a foaming off white head just poured over the top and hung around . Lots of citrus and hops, I can see why 3Floyds beers are so hard to get.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle. The pour is an amberish golden color, almost orange. There is a big frothy white head and a beautiful amount of lace and a filmy head left on the surface. The aroma is fruity up front. Tropical fruits with a nice malty follow-up. The hop bitterness here is really hidden until the end. The flavor is much of the same. There is a strong caramel maltiness that pops through and then moves through a bright citrus and tropical fruitiness. The bitterness slowly moves in and is really good. The mouth feel is nice. Thick with a good carbonation and it really clings. The aftertaste is lingeringly bitter, but also malty. Pretty darn good

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is malty, sweet fruit, hops, nice. Appearance is a beautiful amber/orange, off-white head. Taste is malty, caramel, then sweet hops, decently balanced between the two. Mouthfeel is nice, soft carbonation, sticky. Overall, this is pretty lovely.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The standard by which DIPA should be made. Perfect balance of alcohol/hops and malt. Grapefruit/citrus taste with just enough malt behind it for flavor.
