BroSpud (2188) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAY 8, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a pale golden with a white head an plenty of lacing. Big hop aromas. Primary notes of pine with lesser notes of citrus. Very little alcohol taste despite the high ABV. This is pretty good but doesn’t quite stand up to say a Pliny or or a Dogfish 90. Splitenz (370) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 29, 2014
This IPA smells better than it tastes. It can clear your head with one whiff, but the overall taste was somewhat quick to dissipate. Lots of citrusy goodness, resin notes and all that jazz, I thought it was an accomplished piece of splendour, but alas, it was a bit weak in the finish.
Had this at the excellent Monks American Bar in Stockholm. fiveacestx (970) - Texas, USA - APR 28, 2014
On tap at the Yard House - cloudy dark orange with lacing. Has a resin piney taste up front. The second sip (and beyond) had a bit of a dry whiskey taste. Thick mouthfeel and a heavy finish. BRW (2781) - Barcelona, SPAIN - APR 24, 2014
At BBF. Golden colour with white head. Hoppy, pineapple, grape and grass aroma. Fruity, pineapple, grape and caramel taste. Medium body. lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 19, 2014
330 ml bottle @ Konttori, Tampere. Pours a slightly golden colour with a white head. Aroma of floral hops, caramel and citrus. Flavour of caramel, floral bitterness, herbs and some straw. Quite heavy bitterness. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. Good.

Poured from deuce-deuce bombah, guy. Some lacing, subtle head. Sweet up front, with low-key citrus/apricot hops. Finishes with a nice bitter and almost dry ending. Not getting a lot of flavors/spices mixed in, but the booze is well hidden. Overall, it has parts of a great IPA, but is lacking in the middle a bit.
