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.

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.

@ Tap Mikkeller Viktoriagade. Fantastisk arom, fruktig och humlig. Aromen hintar om sötma i smaken. Smaken är väl balanserad mellan sötman och beskan. Eftersmaken hänger kvar länge med beska.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
(On tap @ Mikkeller Bar Stockholm, Dec 28 2014) Pours a hazy deep brownish-tinged medium gold with a dense head of lacy white froth. Aroma bold and fruity but complex, with florals, citrus peel blend recalls more than the standard offering, a bit of tropical mango, some resinous notes, and something like berries, vaugely dank funky Three Floyds character. A little caramel malt sweetness. On the palate, again quite hoppy and complex with lots of citrus resin, zest and pith - seemed like lime amongst the orange and grapefruit, maybe other things too. Strawberry and kiwi. Caramel is moderate and really just supports the hops. Moderately high bitterness builds from the middle on but doesn’t obscure the fruit either. Long hoppy finish with basically no alcohol. Medium, slightly chewy body with medium carbonation. Phenomenal DIPA really, nice fruity hop character with lots going on, resin, balanced sweetness and bitterness, avoids being a booze bomb. I could drink this all the time (though not at Swedish prices!).

bottle at home. good citrus notes, appearance is golden delicious. The palate was just okay, i think this may have sat in the store too long. ill need to try this again as I dont think I had it as fresh as it needed to be to justify the ranking. Overall a good beer though

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours murky orange with a thin white head that lingers. Typical hop aroma over light carbonation. No obnoxious 1 trick pony hop flavor but not particularly complex either.

Pours golden orange with a creamy white head. Jesus titty fucking christ. Smells like mango, grapefruit, pineapple, citrus, big dirty caramel malts. Taste is similar - plenty of sticky punchbowl fruits, mango and grapefruit dominating, then finished with chewy, spicy caramel. The mouthfeel is insane, drinks stupidly well for the booze. Fuck it, I’m done.
