chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle, thanks to yespr on 30 April 2013. Golden amber colour. Intense floral and grassy hop aroma. Lasting off-white head. Good firm bitterness on the palate to go with the aromatic elements. Not too boozy or sticky but does have a little more residual sweetness than I like.

pintbypint (2589) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
330mkl brown bottle. The beer pours out cloudy and golden. A fine bubbled white cap on top. Attrractive lacing. Aromas are of pine and zesty orange peels, fruity notes and a bit of sweetness. Taste has a big load of hops with notes of grapefruit, heavy orange peel, pineapple, peach and mango fruit, some caramel notes. Finishes bitter, lots of hop aftertastes and perhaps a touch of alcohol late. Good brew.

Cloudy orange color, medium off-white head. Floral hops, tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, also a bit piney. Fruity bomb! Heavy bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation, nicely creamy. Lady from Za Popen’t Pivoteka, thank you for suggesting this one!

fantti (698) - FINLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Draft @ Mikkeller Bar Stockholm. Pours orange-golden and hazy, with one-finger stady head. Aroma has a lot of tropical fruits and caramel, wih less citrus notes. Very challenging and intense aroma. Taste has a lot of caramel, but tropical fruits are absent. Hoppiness is grassy and twiggy. Palate is quite sweet and surprisingly light, hoppiness is only medium. Great aroma, but taste is not so intense and fruity, which I’d like.

Kauge (96) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle from Õllepood nr 1 Gambrinus in Tartu (€ 4,80), August 2014. Cool design, although the Comic Sansish font on the rear does raise some eyebrows (I mean at least two of mine). Colour is a pale yet murky orange. Head is off-white and... massive! It drops slowly and leaves a considerable lacing. Nose is extremely piney and resinous, giving off great early autumny warmth, plus some dried apricots. More maltiness appears as it warms. Taste is pine resin, ripe tropical fruits (juicy) and malts. The extreme bitterness is well balanced by the sweetish, biscuity malts. I don’t get much citrusy aspects anywhere here. The 9,3% ABV in here is well hidden, only hinting at its own existence in the looong, soothing, bitter and warming finish... and... well, actually the last 1/3 is rather alcoholic to be honest - but in an enjoyable way. Full body, velvety smooth mouthfeel and a sticky palate; carbonation is low. I love such stuff. And so do the many fruit flies I see hovering above my glass... Overall a very good DIPA (though I do enjoy many of the other widely available ones more) best enjoyed in the beginning of a Nordic autumn when some leaves have already fallen and become the same colour as this beverage. Oh I so will one day enjoy this on a bench in Kadriorg park, surrounded by yellow maple leaves!

Bottle 0.33 l. Cloudy liquid, looks like apricot juice. Average yellowish head. Full body, light carbonation. Rich with taste of fruits like pineapple, apricot and peach, citruses, touch of herbs. Medium sweetness, medium to heavy bitterness, long lasting finish. Very good one.

PapaVillum (424) - 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!

Bottled 330ml. -from Hoppiness Koper. Cloudy orange coloured, medium sized creamy white to off-white head, intensive fruity hoppy nose. Moderate malty, fruity hoppy and some alcohol with slight spicy herbal notes in the finish. Pleasant one.
