Pours a very murky light brown with 4 finger head with long lingering head. Poured over when cap popped. Very heavy lacing. Aroma initially of grapfruit hops before drinking. Flavors include molasses, caramel, toasted and roasted malt, grapefruit, hint of dark fruit. Full body, long, moderately bitter finish. This is good. Strong, but good.
I remember having a couple bottles of this at Koht a while back. Or, more precisely, half of what I bought for myself, and half of what I’d suggested another time to a wine-drinking friend. Half and half because the rest had catapulted out of the bottle despite our best efforts to predict it from happening. Was a pretty memorable beer/champagne bastard of a brew with strong, rawish, green/white wine characteristics and intolerable carbonation. Sourish, bitter. Not one to keep in mind and buy again and again, more like a one (or two) times kind of gimmick. Surprised to see it’s labelled under IIPA.

Bottle - Vintage 2013 - Lots of butterscotch sweetness and spice. Hazy gold with a rich white head. Old so hard to judge. cfrancis (3453) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2015
Pours a dirty golden brown with a small off white top. Aroma is pine resinous hop bitterness with dry oak characteristics. Taste is a bold, piney resinous hop bitterness with dry oak and vinous. joe19612 (2929) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015

Pours clear medium amber with four fingers of uncontrollable tan head, heavy chunky lacing. (4/5) Nose is red berries, lemon peel, vinous grapes, woody oak, earthy. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Medium and slightly oily body, high carbonation, boozy and surprisingly crisp finish. (4/5)
Now that’s an interesting D/IPA - really pleasant vinous notes dominate, and the mouth feel is light and crisp. I was sort of starting to get a little tired of over-the-top DIPA’s that only ended up being malt-forward (Stone Enjoy By 02.14.15 excepted, OMG what a beer), but this? This I like.

1.2.2014. Tuoksussa lempeää humalaa ja metsää. Maussa ensin tuntuu voimakas hiilihapotus, myös alkoholi pistää hieman läpi. Muuten varsin ok dipa, katkeroa ja mallasta maistuu. Tuoksun lempeys hieman puuttuu. Hieman liian hapokas ja alkoholinmakuinen dipa. tricksta_p (4662) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2015
Complex aroma of ripe fruits, tart fruits, zesty lemon, grapes, oak, hops. Flavour is light sweet and moderate tart, with a light bitter dry finish. Somewhere between a tart Imperial IPA and a hoppy Barley Wine. I like it! Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2014
It’s dark amber with a creamy and lasting head. The aroma is lovely rich fruity and hoppy. The mouth feel is oily. The flavor has a moderate sweetness and a nice bitterness and notes of ripe fruits, alcohol, caramel and the finish is bitter and very long lasting with flavors developing.

Bottle picked up from somewhere (probably shop in Harlaam) consumed at home Thursday 23rd October 2014. Pours dark amber, murky appearance with a white head occasionally sticky. Aroma is a little vinous, fruity but an oomph on nose. Soft in mouth, really soft and a creamy texture with a real winey twang and fruity, zappy back end. A little warmth. I like the way that a potentially big IPA has been slapped back down by good BA. A8 A3 T8 P4 Ov16 3.9
