WinterCoat's Imperial IPA is light amber in color. The fruitiness from the ale yeast combines beautifully with the body of the malts and the feshness of the bops to create a very well-balanced, though very heavily hopped brew. Double Hop has a heady hop aroma without too much bitterness. The smooth taste belies its 8.5% alcohol content. This beer is dangerously pleasant to drink!

Benfi (691) - DENMARK - AUG 17, 2013
Pours syrupy with a deep dark murky amber color and strong retention head that initially fades quick but then lingers for a long time. Aroma of hop resin, slight grapefruit, and sour apple? Flavor is strong in sweet and bitter with a interesting sourness mixed into it.

rgf001 (264) - München, GERMANY - APR 17, 2013
Bought on Feb2013 at Barleywine, Copenhagen. Best before Jan14 per bottle. Drank on 17-Apr. Pours a hazy light orange with carbonation on the (very) low side. Most predominant smell is sour (Geuze) like. If there are any hops, they are covered by this smell. Tastes sour as well, lemon, lactic acid, raspberries, pineapple. No bitterness at all, just sourness. Flavor is not bad (not a Cantillon either), just not an IPA. Just relabel Lambic and age, and maybe you have a winner.

Desverger (5043) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle collected from brewery - hazy copper colour with a medium diminishing white head. Sweet malty caramel taste with some pine but only slight hop nuances. Has an almost sour taste at end. Ok overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy gold beer, good white head. Quite an aged malt nose! Light semi dry palate. Creamy malt nose, whisper of smoke. Slight sour note before the hops kick in - smooth orange and a trace of grapefruit. Finishes creamy and with light fruits. Well joined up and slightly off the beaten track.

DSG (9317) - Tel Aviv, - MAY 18, 2012
[5/12/12] Hand-pump draught sample at Ølfestival København 2012. Almost clear deep amber brownish color with a medium beige head. Aroma of malt, candies (some gummy bears) and some floral hops. Sweet candy-ish flavor, pretty malty, with a bit of honey and a somewhat bitter finish with a bit of hops. Not very DIPA-like, but kinda OK. Medium-bodied.

Holmen1 (3915) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2012
På CBF. I fjor var alle ølene til Wintercoat en minneverdig opplevelse, i år en gedigen skuffelse. Iflg bryggeren er det i denne brukt dobbelt så mye av de samme humler som i IPA Gold, uten at dette hjelper. Ufrisk smak av overmodne bringebær. Vammelt, greide ikke å drikke opp.

lusikka (7621) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2012
Draught @ Ølfestival København 2012.
Pours an amber colour with a white head. Aroma of sweet bubblegum, caramel and some nuts. Flavour of sweet malts, lingonberries, caramel and some hops. Light bodied, soft carbonation and a long juicy finish with some alcohol. Juice without hops.
