Poured copper with off white head. Aroma of strong earthly hops. Flavor was much of the same with citrus hints throughout. Very smooth for an overly hopped brew.

andersand (529) - Malm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2010
Hazy orange colour with a dense white head that leaves some amazing lazing on the snifter. Aroma is very balanced of fruity and very light caramelly malt, fruity and piney, slightly perfumey hops with prominent grapefruit notes. Flavour delivers what the aroma promises plus a big dose of sweet fruity malts and a more than expected bitter and dry finish. Very balanced, clean and drinkable (like a 6-7ABV IPA.) Mouthfeel is lively with quite harsh carbonation, keeps things drinkable though, dangerously so. Another winner from Alesmith which would probably have blowed my mind if I tried a truly fresh bottle..

Hoprider (526) - DENMARK - JUL 29, 2016
Pours an almost clear colour with a white one finger foam. Noses pretty malty.. Sadly. This is a few months old but that is the reality of buying us ipas in Europe, they are rarely fresh and that is a real shame. And we landed on the Moon and shit. Tastes pretty malty too. Seems like any dankness or hoppy fruityness has just disappeared. Might not be a fair rating but what can you do?

Did not overly excite me, surprisingly so. I thought it would better. With that being said, it was still a good beer. Poured a clear light amber with a nose of fruit and hops. The flavor was that of citrus and fruit with a slight bit of spice on top of the malt. A decent double IPA, but not in the league of Majaraha, Hercules, 90 Min, Old 21, Pliny the Elder et al. Maybe, I need to try this one on draft to fully appreciate this beer. I am quite surprised that this beer is the 5th highest rated double IPA in the world.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Cloudy amber color with a large off-white head. Strong grapefruit hops aroma. Very nice strong grapefruit hops, sweet malt and grape flavors with a very dry ash and grapefruit hops finish. Really good!

larryLSB (522) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Poured from bomber. Amber gold with medium off white head with nice lingering lacing. Nose was hops, malt and citrus with a hint of vanilla. Tasted as good as the aroma, with a dry finish.

carl4beer (522) - Fairfax Station, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2008
pours golden and hazy with huge head and some decent lacing. aroma is malty with some fruit and caramel, soft on the nose. mouthful is earthy with some fruity hops coming through. finnish is crisp and dry. very nice iipa, but to be #3 on the IIPA list is a bit overstated... i did enjoy the winter yules mith much more...

EvanFriend (518) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2013 Lots of pine, some citrus. Notes of peach, maybe pineapple? Tropical fruit of some sort. Very hop-forward. Very good. Been looking for this for about two years, I finally found it at some place in Philadelphia that sells bottles and seems to be a bar as well. And the Eagles were losing the preseason game too. As a lifelong Giants fan, I hate the Eagles. That just makes this beer even better.

Poured from the bomber cloudy dark orange with thick head. taste is an abundance of hops, strong, pine, some citrus, and very easy drinking, note to self: the next time I say to myself "I should probably get two of these" listen to myself, because this was good, and will probably be sold out by the time I get back.
