Pours a bit hazy. Small head, stays some time and marks the glass. A lot of tropical fruit hoppiness in aroma with a long and finish. Bitterness is on a good level, but the staying long aftertaste is tiring.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Batch #0019. Bottled on July/13. BB July/14. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Murky brown colour with a hell of a head.
The aroma is grassy and fruity hops, mild bitterness, strong malt and sweetness.
The flavour is fruity hops, resin, mild bitterness, dark malt and alcohol.
The 9.7% is very nicely disguised but maybe a little bit more freshness would be needed. Not bad but not hell yeah!

Tap at Sebright Arms. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Nose is full of fresh grass and sweet tropical fruits. You can the the bitterness is going to be there. Taste shows juicy mango and peach with grassy hops. Decent length and bitterness without being to cloying. Solid stuff

Murky orange beer with a sweet, hoppy aroma. The flavour is surprisingly restrained, blending some malt and sweetness in with the big hop hit. Delicious.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Söder om Småland, Malmö; 8.5% and "batch 2" on the keg, according to the bartender
Cloudy amber color with compact head. Strong aroma of fruity and resiny hops, deep persistent and clean. Good body with smooth mouthfeel; strong caramel flavor, quite strong hop resins, moderate hop fruits (bitter oranges, cedar and more), and light Parmigiano Reggiano touch, umami. It has just the correct sweetness level, not too much, and pretty strong bitterness.
I like my hoppy beers when they deliver fruity freshness; this is not one of those, but it’s solid and clean enough to be enjoyed.

Keg @ BrewDog Shepherds Bush. Dark copper/orange, a bit of head. At first I could smell the hops from 18 inchs away, but the aroma seemed to fade quickly. Still full, fruity and fresh though. Grass and a definite papaya note. The taste was maltier than I’d expect. Bittersweet without altering too much throughout the profile. Too much alcohol. Overall verdict: incredible, but perhaps too intense. This was (I believe) my first DIPA and it was not gentle with me.
