Great use of hops...and they add them by the ton. While the aroma is amazing, the lightness of the beer is a bit off for a DIPA. The ABV is completely unnoticeable - to the point that there should be more. The hop flavor doesnt just stand infront of the malt flavor, it fully eclipses it. I would have preferred there to be a bit more malt in there...not to mute the hops, but to give it more of a appearance, palate, and abv backbone. A great NorCal hop bomb.

TorbenJensen (1510) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2017
Large white foam. The aroma is fresh with lots of exotic fruit and citrus. The flavor is short-lived malted with caramel malt, but soon a sweet hops of passion fruit, grape, peach and pine needles occur. The aftertaste is long and half dry.

brnandersen (3850) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2017
Draught sample at Copenhagen Beer Festival 2017. Clear, amber golden colour with a thin, white head. Fruity aroma with resin, grass, spruce, citrus, caramel malts and tropical fruits. Taste is bitter. Full bodied. Finishes dry and lasting bitter with rich caramel malts and a good hops bite. Old school - very enjoyable.

Stew41 (2007) - Phuket, THAILAND - MAY 1, 2017
Fierce hops and burning alcohol late. Not balanced but of course no lack of flavour and impact. Massively long finish but just burns (for ages).

minutemat (5257) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2017

tfredvik (1912) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2017
Very hazy medium yellow to amber body with an off-white head. Strong aroma of overripe tropical fruits, orange, caramel, cookies and burnt sugar. Strong flavour of overripe orange and caramel, tropical fruits and burnt sugar in the back, and also some rubbery hints. Moderate sweet taste with a long-lasting moderate bitter finish. Full body, creamy texture, quite soft carbonation. This one was probably better fresh.
[35.5 cl can, enjoyed 6 months before BB date, from Vinmonpolet Storo, Oslo]

anstei (2128) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 5, 2017
Tap. Pours clear golden. Aroma is tropical fruits and not much else. Body is medium to heavy, low carbonation, sweet and rather fruity, killing the bitterness. Sweet palate too. Quite okay, nothing you would miss though.
