Great beer. Heard was huge and lingering. The aroma is powerful with Strong hints of orange and hops. The taste is fruity, hoppy , with a hint of coconut, and a bitter finish that stay with you.

Fruktig sötbesk doft av grape och mango. Rejäl kropp som är ganska söt. Rejäl men inte brutal beska åt grapevitan, tall, recin och lite örter.

Bottle at MC Zurich. Pours cloudy amber. Aroma is tropical fruit, syrup, old fruit. Body is heavy, very bitter and sweet, lots of resin, lively carbonation. Bitter sweetish palate, spicy and warming. Okay.

330ml bottle bought at HK Brewcraft in Central.

Looks: Cloudy hazy orange honey colour with a very thin ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; One finger head with crumpety off-white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Beautiful sticky lacing with slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet full Ale malt, with pineapples, passion fruits, grapefruits, alcohol, strong floral nectar, light pine, resins, yeast and lemon peels.

Taste: Close to medium sweet full Ale malt, with strong grapefruits, candied fruits, light pineapples, floral, alcohol, light molasses, pine, resins, spices, dry biscuits, yeast, strong lime, quite strong bitter hops and fresh grass.

Body: Full body. Oily and oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Full Ale maltyness in a pretty viscous background. Hops taste is strong but not ‘burning’, instead there are some good soft citrus and tropical fruityness to the tongue. Pine and ooze are obvious but not that strong, Sweetness is surprisingly light for the style. Dry biscuit with strong lime to round. Very easy and comfy!

Booze: the 10% abv is very well hidden in taste despite the strong aroma. No train wreck throughout. Excellent!

Hoppiness: Pineapples, passion fruits, grapefruits, floral nectar, light pine, resins, lemon peels in nose. Strong grapefruits, candied fruits, floral, pine, resins, spices, strong lime, and fresh grass in taste; Bitterness is mid to strong for a lasting, close to high astringent sweet-bitter finish.

After Taste: Quite dry. Oozy, hoppy and nicely bitter to mouth.

Comments: I can’t help but to compare this one with To Øl’s Dangerously Close to Stupid, and this one is just as hopped-up but more like a nicer, tamer litter brother. Good tropical and citrus fruity hops fused into the strong malt base, with aroma being more mellow and all taste factors – malt sweetness, hops and booze - are nice and smooth. A very easygoing DIPA. Nice one!

33cl bottle. Semi-hazy pale orange with a thin white head. Notes of grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit, honey, spices, floral hops, alcohol. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, medium carbonation and a bitter-sweet and alcohol-spicy finish.

Rating #1181, flaske fra Marius i Nykøbing Falster

Tåget, gul øl med flot luftigt skum med god holdbarhed. Duft af masser af smør og citrus, samt lidt jordbær, men ikke så kompleks som ventet. Sød og meget humlet smag med masser af jordbær, hindbær, abrikos, hyben, citrus og naturligvis en kraftig bitterhed. Lækkert. Ret cremet og let fyldig.

33cl bottle at home. Somewhat hazy golden with a medium white soapy head. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Quite bitter with nice fruity sweetness. Pine, malts, caramel, spices, mango, tangerine and some herbs. Good stuff.

330ml bottle from Saveur Biere. Pours hazy orangey amber, good white head. Aroma is fruity, hoppy, orangey, floral. Taste is pretty hoppy, orangey, lightly sticky but nicely balanced. Enjoyable DIPA that hides its strength well.
