Bottle from Charleston Beer Exchange just after release. Color is yellowish gold with nice thick white head. Aroma is all citrus hops with strong grapefruit. Taste follows with strong citrus notes. High alcohol is nicely hidden by the malt and hops. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and creamy. The extreme citrus notes of this beer are really nice. Really good DIPA.

Bottle... Pours mostly clear and deeply golden with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. There are loads of grapefruit resin and spicy hops in the bouquet. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor is rindy and bittersweet. Lengthy, bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Hazy deep blond color with creamy head, nice lace. The most prominent aroma is cereals; but that is also a sign of unfresh IPA. The malt flavor is nice, with moderate fruitiness and sweetness; it also has a decent hop character, fruity; light cereals.
It doesn’t appear to be at its prime.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle from Portale Birra, served in a pint glass. Bottled on 02-09-2013. Dark sunrise orange, pretty hazy, with a nice, fluffy, persistent and forever lasting yellow-ish head. Great lacing. Dank and tropical aroma, citric and pungent, not exactly fresh but that’s expected. Some light notes of caramel malts, brown sugar and pine needles. Slightly herbal and resiny taste, sticky and still quite hoppy. Pretty well balanced between a slightly astringent bitterness, and a caramel / mou candy sweetness. Some mild alchool presence, but almost imperceptible. Average carbonation, on the higher side of medium body, creamy texture. For a 6 months old bottle, it’s pretty much glorious.
