Good, but perhaps over-bittered. I know that’s 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 I’ll let others tell you why you should drink this and not others. mloula (2) - Weston, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2012 does not count
Acquired in a beer trade. Green bottle wrapped in paper. No bottle date found. So that’s 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 I’m glad I was finally able to try. You won’t regret getting yourself a bottle of this. I’m just not sure I’d go out of my way to get it again. DSG (15432) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 16, 2012
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. suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2012
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. sethbreaker (180) - New York, Greater London, USA - MAY 13, 2012
On draught. Intense hop aroma. Bitter hop taste, lingers on the palate, seriously bitter, bordering on astringent. Intense experience

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. Davros (3338) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2012
Pours murky copper with a small fading head.
Nose shows piny, resinous hops in abundance with a similar amount of caramel and golden syrup underneath.
Crazily full-on flavours, a lengthy assault of tongue-coating, abrasive hops. Big piny and grapefruit notes again, with some caramel in the background thats almost completely hidden. The bitter seems to linger indefinitely... RIXBREW (11) - USA - MAY 7, 2012
On tap at firkin of libertyville. Pretty dark amber color for imperial ipa. Malty and hoppy and very bitter but balanced overall. Residual hoppy bitterness lingers on palate considerably. Unique as imperial ipas go and highly recommended for a hop heads bucket list!

Extremely sweet and bitter. Flavors of citrus, earth, and eucalyptus all come through. Not extremely harsh, but definitely has a lingering bitterness to it.
