Temptation (224) - - MAY 22, 2014
The rustic and yeasty, nearly wild, aroma and the absolutely opaque aspect, crowned by a very white, lingering and dense head announce an extraordinary beer. This is confirmed with the first sip: complex, tasty, very citric and piney, with a resin touch, in a long development which finishes in an elegant and dry finish. The overall: dangerously close to perfection.

beerfest5 (1147) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 25, 2014
Bright yellow gold effervescent pour. Large off white head, nice citrus juicy hop aroma and flavor. Abv is hidden well, long bitter finish, big oily mouthfeel. Overall a fantastic interpretation of the style.

PapaVillum (437) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2014
330 ml, flaske, 9,3 % ABV, købt i Mikkeller & Friends' Bottleshop, 15. august 2014. Ufiltreret orange/honning-farvet Imperial IPA med stor offwhite skumtop, 7 cm. 1' indtryk: Sød-/syrlig aroma af citrus, honning, græs. Holy smoke, this is gut! Dejlig balance mellem en solid og dog ydmyg sødme og den fine humlebitterhed. Sødmen er næsten som en fin sommerkåbe til det bitre. Smagen er krydret og har den på-grænsen-til-det-beske-afslutning, men lidt mere forfinet i denne øl. 2' aromaindtryk: fersken, blomst. Stald. Fyldig og rund krop med let perlende mundfornemmelse. CO2 under medium niveau. Blød og fræk skarp på én og samme gang. Eftersmagen er både fin, lang og afbrudt. I virkeligheden er den bitre smag nok i "overtal", men i parløb med en sådan sødme, er det dén, man bemærker. If this is "Dangerously Close To Stupid", I don't mind being regarded as retarded! Pure enjoyment!

CPH2200 (288) - DENMARK - APR 12, 2013
Dark cloudy orange brew, reminds me of a german hefeweissen. Great aroma, fresh with hops, citrus and subliminal hints of seaweed? Taste is slightly sweet and, of course, bitter and citric due to the heavy citra/centennial hopping. The high abv is not clear, more like 6-7%. This is a very fine IPA indeed.

ACD (634) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 4, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 33cl bottle - only 5 weeks old. Pours hazy light orange with thin, patchy white froth. Aroma is pure hop goodness: loads of tangerine, mango, blood orange, pineapple and grapefruit. A real tropical cocktail - wonderful. Taste comes on strong with loads of sweet tropical notes: mango and passionfruit especially. Some pineapple and pithy citrus too. Semi-sweet biscuit malt backbone allows the hops to really shine - unadulterated juicy hop character throughout. Finish is medium-sweet initially but becomes pretty crisp very quickly. Lingering bitterness - lots of residual orange and grapefruit, as well as some lingering pine resin. Bloody hell. This is the real deal: a really REALLY good DIPA.

Brandman (2076) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Hazy yellow body, white head. Aroma has mango, papaya, pineapple and all the exotic fruits there can be. Flavour has some light candy and really crispy exotic fruity bitterness. Some soapy finish and very full palate. Really nice double IPA, one of the lighter ones. I mean not heavily caramelized. This is the kind I like.

Ibrew2or3 (6881) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 24, 2013
33cl bottle pours with an opaque dirty gold body (hop hazed I hope) that supports an off white head. The aroma offers up citrus hoppy goodness mixed with mineral notes and some spicy hops, floral hops and resiny pine. The taste is juicy malt sweetened grapefruit as well as orange and tangerine notes and then moving into slivers of earthy lime, floral hops and pine hops. Behind all of the hops are modest notes of yeastiness and a mineral sensation. Juicy citrusy goodness here. I like it and I really enjoy just about everything from this brewery.

Shared by dutchdrebus, @2014. Hazy golden orange beer with a offwhite head. A lot of hops, fruity and fresh aroma. Very nice flavor, hoppy, fruity, sweet and well balanced.

Bärnstensfärgad grumlig med stort ljust skum. Massor med amerikansk humle i både doft och smak! Ganska besk och riktigt bra! Lättdrucken med inslag av tropisk frukt!

Para mi gusto una de las mejores Imperial IPA/DIPA de las que podemos encontrar en europa. Muy aromatica, aromas citrico y a pino, se reconocen muy facilmente Centennial y Citra. Muy balanceada, a pesar de que tiene 9.3 grados sigue siendo muy bebible, el cuerpo es medio y la carbonatacion media tirando a suave
