Surprisingly smooth for an Imperial IPA. Very drinkable. One of my new favorites.
Nydelige IPA smagt på flaske hyggeligt selskab! Den er nok serveret i for kold flaske.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2017 Bottle. Amber colored with a big foamy off-white head that has good retention. The aroma is decent with pine, citrus and toffee. The taste was a bit of a letdown, I found this bitter just for bitters sake--no real hop flavor--like they dumped a boatload of magnum in the boil at flame on. The principal flavor was overly sweet caramel, and very bitter caramel at that. Bit of candied cardboard in there too. The palate was medium and a bit sticky. Overall: Im sure this would have been a first rate IPA in 2007, but today it just does not tickle my fancy.. KevinReddirt (152) - Midland, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2017
Purchased the first time I saw a four pack at a local HEB. Glad I did. Out of the bottle it comes a super nice hazy orange liquid putting up a thinnish white top. The nose is resin with some caramel. Tasting it I get a moderate hop kick, maltiness, surprising for an IPA and a toffee-like sweetness. The bitterness is present throughout. I detect the 9.2% abv lingering in the background. Brewer should be proud. George999 (455) - Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2017
From tap at brewery- the pour is clear, copper in color with a full bodied head. The aroma is bright, clean, slight grass notes, citrus, and a little sweetness. The taste is hoppy, notes of vanilla, citrus, malts are strong but not the prevalent flavor. The mouthfeel is thick and smooth, almost creamy. The finish is bitter, but quickly dissipates to a slight sweetness. Overall a great DIPA. Andrew196 (1855) - Katy, Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Bottle - looks lovely, orange copper pour with a sticky ivory head. Great nose, pine, much resin, sweet citrus, like orange frosting. Medium bodied, plenty of citrus with a tropical edge, a nice bitter breadiness rounds it out. Great beer and very drinkable for the abv.

Clear golden with clingy lacings. Aroma is floral perfume and breaded malt. Th r res plenty of bitterness but it’s not sharp. Tropical fruits come out towards the finish. ordybill (1732) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Smyrna, GA. The appearance is a nice orange color with a large white head. The aroma is citrus and the taste is a great hop/alcohol DIPA mix. bubblehouse (1488) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Really hoppy. Has a nice aroma but is a little intense. Still real tasty and worth trying. hman43 (1540) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - MAY 28, 2016
It pours a golden orange that is actually more on the orange side. There is an off white moderate head that does produce a fair amount of lacing. It has aromas of Grapefruit and apricot with bread and caramel in the background. There is also a hint of spruce. IT is very sweet up front and bitters while in the mouth. There are grapefruit and apricot flavors with bread and caramel. It has a moderate feel with a moderately bitter finish that is fairly long lasting. Overall it is moderately bitter with strong fruit flavors and moderately malts on the low side. andyhwcinc (1884) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Enjoyed on tap at Ale House in Grand Junction, CO. I didn't take tasting notes, but remember this being a pretty strong high ABV imperial IPA with lots of citrus. Overall pretty good, would have again.
