Bottle at home. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, orange, pine resin, malt biscuit, some caramel, grapefruit, hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a dry generous hoppy bitter finish. A bit boozy, especially towards the end. Body is medium to full. Rich and heavy IIPA, lots of citrus with a big bittersweet flavour.

CraftBeerNick (2567) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2015
Tap at La Fine Mousse, 3rd November 15. Pours fairly dark yellow, aroma is sweet and hoppy. Taste is bitter sweet, gets a little hard going, slightly hot. Not bad

JorisPPattyn (10005) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2015
Huge, yellow-cream head, leaving shards of lace over well-carbonated orange-golden beer. Spicy, "hot" malts, citrussy hops, dry hopbales, demure. Bitter, toasted to roasted flavour, restrained fruitiness, resin. Underneath quite some malty sweetness. Some balance, but no sparkle anywhere. Quite slick to viscous, well-bodied, faint alcoholwarming. K.S. remains a ’bib’ chain, with all its consequences...

slowrunner77 (12051) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 27, 2015
Good fresh. Can’t comment to shelf life. Big juicy aromatic piney hops. Resinous feel and pronounced bitterness.

Hazy amber beer, good bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and crisp. Minerals. Sweetish malts, mild cream, whisper of honey. Brief flash of bright tangerine, a more steady orange. A touch of vodka like alcohol! Good tropical fruits before a smooth and semi dry finish. Mild hop spice at the very end. Peel bitter linger. Nice.

Habanero (4682) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2015
Pours clear deep golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus notes, pine and tropical fruits. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and solid bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice DIPA.
