bottle @ Belmont Party Supply / Dayton OH --- Aroma of caramel malt. Cloudy amber brown color, small white head that drops quickly to a thin cover, sheets of lace. Taste is semi-sweet toffee and malt, medium fizz, and a little shot of hops before returning to sweet at the finish. A little alcohol reminds that it is Imperial, but the hops are well short of IPA status. On its merits, it works well enough, just not an IPA. jrodooo5 (1672) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle states best by 4/13, However, still a solid beer! Interesting tomato juice looking poor - murky copper w/ a very thin head & little lacing. The aroma is soft & just slightly boozy at this point. The taste is underlyingly bitter w/ the booze really sticking out as well as malt to balance it out. Competitively easy on the palate & overall not bad. Just wonder how different a fresh one would be? pentaz (1264) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle (brewed at Fanø). Pours opaque orange with a minimal off-white head. Aroma is quite sweet with caramel, toffee, grass, orange fruit and grapefruit. Taste is moderate+ sweet and moderate bitter. Body is medium. Finishes malty but also quite bitter. Very sweet and malty for an IIPA. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 31, 2014

This beer had all the classic signs of being brewed on the East Coast...except it was brewed in Denmark. The aroma is moderately sweet smelling, almost honeyish or table-sugar sweet. Some orange rind and grapefruit round out the aroma. The fat malt profile leans WAY over towards the barleywine side of the beer spectrum with only a modicum of grapefruit makes an appearance to "balance" it out, which is to say it is unbalanced, to me, in a way that’s not what I enjoy in IIPA’s. The malts are simply overpowering. slowrunner77 (12037) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 22, 2014
what the cake is up with the name? anyway, a sweet tropical fruit bruiser than has a sh--ton of pine and spruce hops. aggressively bitter but not off putting at all. layered, with an ample sweet malt backbone. "

A big and sweet ipa. Pour is dark amber with a hube fluffy off white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with a citrus hop note. Sweet up front with a ton of malt chased with bitter hops. At 9% it will get you in a good way. thornecb (5907) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 14, 2014
