On draught at Hair of the Dog. An intriguing greyish golden color. Smells of grassy and citrusy hops. Hops come through first on the palate, with a spicy citrus sweetness at the end. One of my favorite double IPAs.

Thanks Frank! Bottle to tulip. The appearance was a golden sunshine yellow color with a two fingers worth of white foamy head. Seemed to really take its time in dissipating, I didnt mind. Some heavy lace ran here and there. The aroma spoke of some sweet to soft spicy rye, light floral hop tones, some herbal, light citrus, a touch of resin, light passion fruit and ended with some sweet fresh grassy tones. The flavor came between the sweet to spicy portions and then subtly allowing the passion fruit to make a light presence. Not much of an aftertaste, seemed somewhat fresh piney to that passion fruit with a cohesive piney to grassy and passion fruit sweet sort of finish. The palate was about medium bodied with a good sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt spot on. ABV felt as projected. Bitterness was there yet contained enough to not impart much hop abrasion. Overall, well, damn! I totally understand the hype train behind this one. Im jumping on!

Aroma is passionfruit, grapefruit, and lemongrass . Taste is light grains which are consumed by flour, fresh and both bitter and earthy hop notes. Appearance is a lightly hazy hold with a thin pearl head that retains well.

Zeer vol en romig, mooie knapperige hop, niet te bitter. Heel veel gist als body, daar hou ik van. Heel veel in n glas. Koppig, gedroogd fruit, rond, romig. Top voor een bier binnen het genre dat niet mijn favoriete stijl is.

Keg @ HotD. Gold pour with a modest white head. Nose has some nice herbal hop character. A touch of pine. Light peppery spiciness. Similar flavor. Restrained, crisp malt. Spicy, floral bitterness. A bit oily. Fine carb. Good.

Habanero (4598) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2017
Bottled. Pours hazy golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, alcohol and a little pine. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry and solid bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice DIPA indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟
