Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange color with no head. Has a hoppy bitter aroma with hints of grapefruit. Sweetish malty and very hoppy bitter piney flavor. Has a warming malty hoppy bitter finish. hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2011
baker with the oddity on 7/29/10.
coppery amber color with no head.
the nose is insane.... dank, resinous, wort sweetness, caramel grain, spicy alcohol and another bag of hops.
the flavor is the same... super sweet but balanced by super intensified hop oils and bitterness. it feels like hop flavored whiskey. it is very hard to think of how to rate it. what evs, it’s good. 8/3/8/4/16/3.9

Bottle shared by rciesla - many thanks. Deep amber pour - almost still. The nose is massively hoppy. A huge resinous burst of hop oil and resin. Soft and hoppy with a lot of light bright ethanol. Thick and oily palate with a lot of booziness. As it warms up, the hoppiness becomes incredibly intense. It’s like a hop liquor - intense, unique but not at all unpleasant. It’s hard to compare it to beers or IIPAs, because it’s so unique. dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - FEB 27, 2011
Smells cheesy and boozy, some sort of sweet syrup too. Thick texture with sharp liqueur. Some musky funk with a strong alcohol burn and, incredibly, a hoppy aftertaste. Well-crafted and incredible, but not exactly... nice.

Bottle from Klooster, shared of course! What more can be said about this beer? It’s simply a crazy experience that any beer lover should try once. cyrenaica (1126) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2011
1.5oz snifter Odland (137) - NORWAY - FEB 10, 2011
I tried this beer on January 17, 2011 at "The Beerbistro" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer was a translucent golden red with no head. The aroma was alcohol, pine, and hops. The mouthfeel was full bodied with no carbonation and burned going down. The flavour was citrusy hops and tons of alcohol.
Bottle shared at home. Pours golden amber. Oily texture and smells of hops and toffee. Described by the taste panel as a well balanced hop liqueur. Prominent alcohol but not to disturbing. A fantastic IIPA. Meant to be shared. beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - FEB 8, 2011
WOW!!!! I really didnt expect this to taste like a beer after sampling sam adams utopias which tastes like a brandy. If someone handed to me and said it was a new DIPA from Brewdog but didnt say it was 41%, I wouldnt know until I was on the floor. Thank you to my lovely cool wife for getting me a 12oz beer for $100 against her better judgement. Poured into a snifter, amber color, and smells as most DIPA’s do, citrus, floral, hoppy. Tastes is complex hops, definitely the abv comes through, difficult to make it disapear. very enjoyable and for someone who is sick of the imperials and crazy abv beers out there, this was an experience ill never forget. ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2011
Bottle. "Pours out in a shiny clear reddish amber colour with a snall creamy whute head. Big dense aroma of resin, caramel and peppery alcohol. Full-bodied with hot sticky flavours of resin, caramel, over-riped oranges, alcohol and burnt sugar. Long hot and sticky finish of resin, candied oranges and apricots, big time pine, burnt sugar and quite hot booze. Crazy stuff but we have to take a nap now. Bye.
