5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid orangy copper with 2-finger frothy and copious lacy white head. Not off-white, but very white. Nose is great; a huge pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, black pepper medley that knocks your olfactory receptors into next week with their awesome IBU and hopcitrus bill. Tastes rich, complex, with a huge caramel malt load, a ton of resiny hop flavors, tangerine, pineapple, black pepper, and a crisp satisfying finish. Say hello to one of the world’s best IPAs, and get ya some, even if you have to pay Danish shipping rates.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Whoaaa! What a beer! I let it warm up a bit out of the fridge. It poured with a huge, foamy, frothy, sudsy, cream colored head that mostly settled down and lots of clingy lace. Color is a cloudy medium amber with plenty of bubble trails. Aroma is a heady whiff of very fresh poetent hops, malt, fruits, caramel, and a faint fleeting hint of solvent. Flavor is much the same. Great body and carbonation. Finish is very long and like flavor. Too rich and strong (although no sense of alcohol) to be a session.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rich aroma is strongly hoppy with a firm citrus undertone that is mainly orange with a note of grapefruit. It pours a hazy dark honey-amber with a fairly thick off-white head. Strong flavor is, no surprise, mainly hoppy yet minimally bitter and has a firm note of sweet citrus plus a sour touch - very tasty. Rough texture is quite fizzy and leaves a hoppy, citrus tingle behind. A must if you like good IPAs!

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Det här var en ytterst behaglig ölupplevelse och smaken, som är väldigt behaglig, präglas främst av blommighet och citrus. Beskan beter sig lite underligt, den börjar lite mjukt och försiktigt men ökar i kraft efterhand och mot slutet blir den skarp och hård. Slutsats: en ypperlig öl.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very strong hoppy smell. Almost an eteric oil strong one. Pours with quite some head, brown-ish. First taste is full bodied, very well balanced and you just search for the 408 ibu bitterness, but it’s not there! It comes after you swallow and pleasantly dries your mouth. An excellent beer!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It’s unclear, dark orange with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of oranges and other citrus, peach – lots of peach. The flavour is sweet and has lots of fruity notes, primarily a lot of peach, but also oranges and other citrus, pineapple, papaya and a light bitterness – it’s a really fantastic, tasteful, aromatic and harmonic DIPA!!
