4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
After having this brew several times in the past year thought I should put a rating in for this fabulous IPA. 22oz bomber pours a hazy, dark coppery color with thin white foam that left a small amount of lace. Aroma had hints of resinous pine, lush citrus fruits, and sweet malts. The carbonation is low to medium & the body is full. The taste is a balanced mouthful of a creamy, malty, sweet finish, along with an unbelievable, intense hoppy flavor and bitterness equaled by the intensity of the richness of full bodied mega malt. This definitely is one of the best IPA’s I have to date. I could drink this stuff all night!!

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lovely unclear dark golden color with a fine off white head that leaves nice lacing down the glass. Powerful grapefruit and tropical aroma. Full body and a nice balance between sweetness and bitterness. Oily texture and a bit dry ending. Heavy sipper this one. Powerful fruity and lovely grapefruit hoppy. Powerful stuff that could easily felled over to the heavy sweet side or harse bitterness. Also well masked alcohol. Recommendable.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to glass at a tasting. Pours a golden orange with a medium white head. Aromas of juicy citrus, pine, and grass. Taste is piney with lots of juicy citrus in there of grapefruit, lemon, and orange. Hints of tropical mango as well, but not as pronounced as the Panzer on that aspect. Another very smooth drinking DIPA from Three Floyds. Finished dry and bitter. Oh so good.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
What an amazing well balanced IPA! My only qualm with this beer is the lack of availability of suitable glassware to accommodate 1 pint and 6 fl oz! It pours opaque orange with a white head that lingers around, arousing you with all the aromas of this beer - which are tantalising. Aroma is pine and citrus. Taste is adventure which starts with oranges then transforms into fresh hoppy grass and carries on into caramel with lingering pleasant bitterness. A citrusy bitterness.
Do not hesitate to try this if given the chance, it is everything anyone could want in in IPA!

Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen 141024. Fruity with lots of caramel and hoppy notes, some sweetness and some grape and pine, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is long, dry, bitter and caramely. A really well balanced and great beer!
