3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
33 cl. bottle @ Home.
Aroma: not very intense but very pleasant aromas of tropical fruits, fruits, grapefruit, maybe mango or passion fruit, citrus. No hints of alcohol in the nose.
Appearance: quite deep golden to light amber color with medium hazyness. Perfectly white head with very high thickness, very high retention, medium Brussels’ lacing and creamy texture, made of big sized bubbles.
Taste: low to medium sweetness, medium bitterness, low sourness. Flavors of grapefruit, tropical fruits, resin, pine. Some toasted/caramel malt overtones in the background. Balance is on the hop bitterness side with some malt sweetness as counterpart. Bitterness is quite high but not harsh nor unpleasant. Alcohol level is very well hidden, it’s not noticeable in the flavor nor in its warming effect.
Palate: medium body, oily-silky texture, low to medium carbonation, long dry bitter finish (medium bitterness) of grapefruit, tropical fruits, pine, resin.
Overall: excellent appearance. Not very intense aromas but quite good aromas and flavors of tropical fruits, grapefruit, fruits, resin, pine. Quite bitter but no harshness nor astringency nor too much bitterness. Quite refreshing and drinkable. Good. Not the best IPA (or DIIPA) i’ve tasted so far, but definitely a good one.
Booooooom! Have this! What a cracking DIPA. Like orange marmalade to me, love it.

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, wood, vanilla, fruit, hops and citrus.
Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with a slight off-white head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, wood, vanilla and fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. There is some wood and vanilla shining through and I really have no idea why. Maybe the guys did not clean their tap thoroughly enough? Great fruit flavours and a decent bitter finish thanks to the hops. Great appearance and palate as well, but the aroma could have been stronger.
330ml bottle at home. Pours a hazy orange amber with some head. Very intriguing and spicy aroma. Lots of tropical fruit, orange, lemon, booze, resin, hops. Nice balance of intense tropical and citrus fruit with herbal and spicy hoppiness. Taste is very bitter, medium sweet, caramel and with a pronounced malt base. Fruity, though not as pronounced as in aroma. Finishes herbal and earthy, resiny side of the hops shows off here. Finishes a tad sugary and boozy too. Nice double IPA, flavour could be a tad more fruity or juicy for my liking but could be due to it being a tad old. borre_m (1700) - NORWAY - SEP 9, 2017

Fantastic IIPA. Lots of hoppy experience, with a sweet well balanced body. Don´t fear the high ABV. ken1 (2077) - DENMARK - AUG 4, 2017
Aroma: fruity sweetness with oranges and grape fruits and some dusty notes.
Flavour: Bitter grape and other citrus fruits with a dry bitter finish. Mouthfeel is creamy and lightly alcoholic warm. mmmeinike (282) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2017

Jól sikerült Imperial IPA. Eros, még sem alkoholos. Süteményes felhangokkal. (Elso Mikkeller csapfoglalás alkalmával a Jónásban, csapról). Unde (1129) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2017 Awesome deep cloudy orange beer with nice head on top leaving beautiful lacing to the sides of the glass. Aroma has sweet tropical fruits, citrus fruits, cantaloupe melon. Taste is really bitter with grapefruit and grass hops, maybe too much alcohol and ABV for this beer. Fullish body and medium carbonation.
