COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: Heavily hopped with 50 % US and 50 % NZ hops, for a dry, clean and intensely fruity DIPA. The explosion of citrus, passion fruit, peach and apricot flavors wraps the intense hop bitternes in a highly seductive way. Think ’This is my idea of the ideal fruit bowl!’

(21.0 % P, 9.0 % ABV (first batch at Sigtuna), 100 IBU, Colour ~ 15 - 20 EBC).

thornecb (6152) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Pours deep hazy gold into a shaker. Off-white micro head with excellent retention recedes leaving trailing sheets. Stale tropical and dried fruit aromas. Hot and sweet with peach, mango and apricot upfront turning to mild resin in the dry lasting finish.

BelgiskOlklub (1089) - Viby J, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2013
Tap at Fa!rBar. Hazy orange body and a rocky white head. Aroma of hops: Pine, spruce and citrus. The taste is heavy bitter and light sweet. Oily texture and a long bitter finish.

JanLaursen (3226) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2013
Bottle, 66 cl. Almost clear orange amber with a decent white head. Nose is sticky and sweet with tons of caramel and a fruity note of abricots and gooseberries. Not that hoppy though. Just as sticky in the mouth as teh aroma suggest, lots of fruity residual sugars but quite well balanced with a bitter piney finish and quite some alcohol.

CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2013
22oz bottle: Pours a mostly clear deep copper bronze with a spotty-lacing froth of white head. Has a sweet toasted caramel malty nose with some herbal grassy hop notes and a touch of honey. Starts with pretty good fullness and chewy malty sweetness with plenty of hop bitter bite and some floral notes with light oxidation. I just picked up the bottle and there’s no date, but it seems a little stale to me. Otherwise, it could be better if fresher.

Tap at fairbar, 8/6 2013. Deep orange, small white head, beautiful lacing. Aroma, piney hops, sweet malty background. Taste, hoppy up front, malty in the middle, bitter aftertaste grapefruit. Nice carbonation.

Bov (13354) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 4, 2013
courtesy of Antonio Rey - pretty clear dark orange beer with a poor head retention; aroma of cream and almonds, hints of peach and pineapple below; full-bodied, very assertive and solid bitterness; dry and long flowery hoppy finish; the fruits stay in the background now

Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Solid hoppy brew but not all that complex. Need to try again.

nealm759 (34) - Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Not a very strong nose just little sweet malt hints, poured amber or dark straw white frothy head with good lacing and retention. First so is very malty front with lingering hop bitter finish. Not very specific hop flavors stand out. A little citrusy and a bit chewy. Overall a pretty mehh dipa.

jtclockwork (17634) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle. Shared with Jcwattsrugger. Part of 5K backlog. Pours cloudy gold with off white head. Nose and taste of salted pineapple husk, dried bread, citrus, resin, caramel malt and barley/rye. Medium bodied. Dryish finish.

3.2
5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle:   Dark straw, dirty in color, thin frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Sweaty hoppy aroma, a little dank and musty.   Has a sweet aspect to it that is like Pez or Pixie Stix.   Pretty familiar with this with a lot of Danish IPA or IIPA examples.   Rather earthy on the tongue, soft sweetness, a little candyish, not all that bitter.   Seems very artificial on the tongue, soft bitterness, slight rind/pith, but with that fake Pixie Stix, or Pex like candy sweetness... it kills it.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   How does it finish?   At this point, who gives a sh*t.   Brewed in the USA.   Odd, thought we would have known better by now.   You can do better Ipswich!
