22oz bottle acquired in trade (thanks Tim!). Poured a medium to deeper golden color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, some floralness, fruity (my 7 year old said pears), and pine. Tastes of floralness, citrus, lighter fruitiness, and some caramel. Lacing left on the glass. Alcohol content well hidden. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2011
@Tampa Wkly Gathering @TampaPourhouse 12oz bottle Thanks Ibrew2or3-pours an off white head and hazy gold color. Aroma is resin/citrus, secondary sweet malt. Taste is resin/citrus, secondary sweet malt. Sammy (12184) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
The Nelson Sauvin hop was really interesting in the Mikkeller single hop, and it is masterfully used here. First comes the "white wine" taste (and the aromas are lovely grapes) and a good one at that, then in the finish, other hops put the beer into 90 IBU territory, so hops in your face. Nebver harsh, this was an absolute delight and worth seeking out. Above average mouthfeel, a great smooth drinker.
Kudos to my southern neighbour that sent this one. slowrunner77 (12037) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Aroma and flavor subdued pineapple and floral notes - didn’t see a date but didn’t seem terribly fresh. Still pretty bitter. Just ok with the potential to be better.

22 oz bottle. Courtesy of olio. Thanks!
Cloudy golden color with a tiny white head. Strong sweet resiny hoppy aroma with malty sweetness and alcohol. Strong and sweet. Strong hoppy bitterness, pungent bitterness, some sweetness and mild malty balance in the flavor. Very strong hoppiness.

Bottle… RBWG ‘10… Clear golden ale with a nice, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. The aroma is a mélange of earthy, piny, citrusy hops with just a kiss of butterscotch. Full-bodied and ultra creamy with soft carbonation. The flavor offers some nice, earthy bitterness, but overall, it’s way too sweet for a double IPA - even for me, the ultimate malt head. Tasty, though. Lengthy, sweet finish. Kudos to growler for popping the top on this one.

Shared bomber at Craft. Hazy golden pour with white head and copious lacing. Nose was resiny hops, tropical citrus fruit. Smooth flavor with heavy hops, piney notes, and some grapefruit and lemon throughout. Fin (10534) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie, consumed at home Saturday 24th October 2015. Pours hazy gold with a white head, an IPA very much in the US IPA mould, oily, thick lightly syrupy but this is a great beer. Big punchy hoppiness a little bit of fresh garden herb but massive malty backbone and sweet, subtle tropical notes though these don’t transfer to the mouth so much
Lovely IPA do different after an Axe Edge. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8
