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!

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...

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.

Sask89 (514) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - OCT 13, 2013
Pours a mostly clear amber colour with a creamy off white head. Aroma is of caramel malts, floral hops, pine, and citrus fruits. Taste is slightly sweet but quite bitter throughout, nice balance. Medium body, smooth on the palate, and lively carbonation. Overall an awesome brew.

Flaska från boxbeer. Bärnstenfärgad med vit skumkrona. Söt doft av humle, ananas och kola. Söt och lite besk kropp. Smak av rostad malt, bränt socker, torkad aprikos, tall och ananas.

Sampled at SBWF. Stockholm, September 29th, 2011.
Creamy sweet aroma with big malt notes. Hops in the background that present itself in flavours of grapefruit, peaches and caramel. The body is special and quite enjoyable in this beer, it’s very sparkling. Flavours in the taste of caramel and toffee with a big bitterness. I have a feeling this bottle was quite old.

joejames (510) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2015
On draft, Golden Crust, Red Lion, PA. served in a snifter glass. Pours orange gold, two finger off white head. Nice lacing and retention. Aroma of grapefruit and tangerine. Taste is assertively bitter balanced with caramel sweetness. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, resin but smooth mouth feel. Finishes long, dry and bitter. Tasting notes of red grapefruit, tangelos, spruce, caramel, resin and orange peel. Wow, I really enjoyed this offering! Very nice, punchy DIPA.

Fantastic IPA, perfectly balanced! Well at the line of my expectations. Not stunned, price performance is way to high

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2010
Bottle from wavers1, thanks a lot! Pours a clear, golden orange with loads of bubbles rising to the massive fluffy white head. The aroma isn’t too subdued by the thick layer of suds. It is very floral, citrusy, a little bit of alcohol in there, which comes off as a bit raw. Some sweet, juicy fruitiness in there, tropical fruits. I have a bit of a hard time pinning down the sweetness in here. Fruity, but perhaps a bit candy-like too, or wine gum. The sip is pretty much like you would expect at this point. Short fruity sweetness before massive citric and floral hops cleanse the palate. Bittersweet semidry finish with a moderate alcohol sting and warmth. Body is medium to light, carbonation is pretty mellow and smooth. Overall, it’s a good drink. I would prefer the alcohol to be hidden a bit more, and maybe it’s not completely fresh anymore, but i found their regular IPA to be better by a big margin.

4.5
VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Pours a murky orange brown with a huge off-white head. Big grassy hop aroma. Flavor of citrus and pepper fill the mouth. Starts with the perfect amount of bitterness and end slightly malty. Dry finish. Alesmith does it again.
