Pours copper with a big foamy head. The aroma is a sticky caramel aroma, I love that in real strong IPA’s like RuinTEN. This has a very sweet maltness to it with a nice bitter finish. It’s not as good as ruinTEN but it’s a nice substitute. williamstome (1957) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2015

An amazing beer. Strong, balanced hops, nice color, a perfect American IPA. emusche (209) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Pours deep copper, almost red. Thick, creamy off-white head. Big, hoppy nose along with grapefruit, caramel malt and loads of resin. Taste is piney hops, cut some by the maltiness, but finishes overly dry. Mouthfeel is scorched-earth dry; super-bitter, with lingering heat from the alcohol. It’s not bad, but 22 oz of this will be tough to put away. Desverger (12500) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2015

Bottle, 66cl. This i recall as one of my best IIPA experiences before rating. One month old, this one. Pours a dark, reddish, clear amber with a medium sized, off white head. Really a handsome IIPA! Aroma has lots of caramel malts, toasted malts, in general a very powerfull but still nice malt profile. Lots of hops, slight pine and slight earth. Taste has a big caramel sweetness, some almost roasted bitter toast and a hoppy, bitter finish. Not very fruity, but still really good. Pretty sticky body and a fairly low carbonation. Didn’t live up to my memory, but maybe would have done better completely fresh. Then again - good one!
