PD4Ever (109) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 21, 2012
12.7 oz bottle poured into tulip glass Aroma: peaches, orange, mango, lemongrass, floral hops, malty, caramel, vanilla, maybe a hint of dark fruits Appearance: murky light brown color and very hazy. thin layer of tan head that faded quickly. hardly laces glass. Taste: medium sweet, mild sour, mild bitter Palate: finish is medium to high bitter, medium sweet, and mild sour. Medium body and creamy texture. Carbonation is average. Tropical fruits come out on the aftertaste. Alot less bitter than I was expecting. Bitterness and a bit of heat from the alcohol lingers on the tongue for a while. Overall: This wasnt what i was expecting. The appearance was not the usual DIPA and for the amount of IBUs supposedly present this was no where near as bitter as I expected. I am pleasantly surprised. Lots of fruity and floral aromas. Huge malt backbone to balance it out. For the price I paid however I wont be picking this up again.

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Green wrapped bottle. Pours out a mud like color with tan head. Full body that is thick and creamy. Good lacing. Bitter goes without saying but it finishes with a hint of sweetness I can't identify. Reminds me of palatable wrecker. A beer that gets better once u adjust to the taste. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CamdenD (1195) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 18, 2012
Good, but perhaps over-bittered. I know thats the whole point, but this bitterness was intense and not entirely pleasant. Aroma was nice but again a bit one-sided. The whole beer: one-sided... again, certainly the point, but Ill let others tell you why you should drink this and not others.

Acquired in a beer trade. Green bottle wrapped in paper. No bottle date found. So thats what they mean by resin. Poured into Duvel tulip glass. Murky brown. Four finger off white rocky head that dissipated rather quick. Resin, pine, pineapple, cough drop and green apple come to mind in the aroma. A good amount of bitterness. Pine, grapefruit and a touch of alcohol burn in the throat with a lingering bitterness. A decent beer that Im glad I was finally able to try. You wont regret getting yourself a bottle of this. Im just not sure Id go out of my way to get it again.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2012 [5/9/12] Draught at Mikkeller Bar in Copenhagen. Clear deep amber. Strong hoppy aroma with pine and citrus. Flavor with lots of piney and grapefruity hops. Rounded mouthfeel. A really nice DIPA.

Ruby amber colored pour. Small off-white head. Little lacing. Big hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit and tons of other citrus. Malty taste with a huge hop presence. Bitter, sweet, nice beer.

PhillyCraft (6683) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Bottle with PAt. 22 oz. Pours a hazy chesnut with an insane amount of light, tan sediment. Tall, creamy, beige head. Aroma of vanilla, honey, caramel, oak, cedar, bourbon, and just about every imaginable hoppy, resiny note one can imagine. Insane, thick, full body with a chewy, sticky, bitterly sweet palate. Finishes with a buttery silky smooth warmth. Excellent, insanely unique imperial IPA.
