Keg @ ABR 2016. Gold pour with a medium white head. Nose is very bright and engaging. Lots of tropical fruits - grapefruit meat, mango, pineapple. Sea grass. Just a bit of onion and piss. Flavor is very clean and pretty well balanced. Light pale malt. A touch of citrus zest. More pineapple. Not overly bitter. Easy drinking considering the ABV. Great DIPA.

Thanks Virby44 for the bottle! Poured into a wineglass showing moderately filtered orange with a thin finger of quickly dissipating clean white foam. The nose shows big notes of citric orange, pineapple, and light pine resin on a bed of light caramel malts. The palate is light bodied and fully carbonated. Immediately the flavors shown are impossibly juicy orange and apricot into a mid palate of the same juicy flavors of pineapple, followed by light flavors of pine resin, finished with a light to moderate bitterness that is barely noticeable in light of all these flavors. Wow, this is easily one of the best IIPA’s I’ve ever had.

Bottle, 65cl. Clear golden with a majestic creamy tan head. Aromas of tropical hops, citrus, resin. Medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation. Dry, but not astringent. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Exquisite, rich hoppy and caramel flavors into a complex finish.

Percy0103 (634) - MEXICO - SEP 5, 2016
Bottle, 650ml. A semi-cloudy golden beer with a nice white head. Aroma is of floral hops and citrics, especially grapegruit. Taste is medium bitter and moderately sweet with fizzy carbonation and some astringency. There’s some malt character. Medium bodied with a nice hoppy and citric finish.

Pretty fantastic IPA. Aroma is a bit less pronounced than expected, but the balance between pine citrus and caramel breadiness is spot on. Picked it up at the brewery with Jess in 2016.

stevoj (3932) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 28, 2016
2016 Boise stone fruit tasting on 8/27. Bottle share, thanks to Steve. Hefty golden orange body, small fluffy beige head. Aroma hints at what’s to follow, piney hops and juicy citrus. Flavor follows on in spades, hoppy, dank, musty, piney. But in a good way...no, in a great way. Definitely worthy of its rep..

Bottle share, thanks to Steve. Pours a deep golden orange with a fluffy beige head. Nose is instantly hop filled… citrus and tropical fruit, some pine… dank hoppy goodness. Big hop flavors are bold and bitter, but drinkable. Citrus and pine are huge. This is great.

bursprak (2500) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2016
Sample @ Blåbær ’16, from bottle. Light hazy golden pour with a generous head. Notes of tangerines, mangoes, grape fruit, citrus pee, crackers, some resiny bitterness, dank hops and some light herbal notes.
