BenH (3438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 7, 2011
Pours deep orange with lots of sediment. Good hop aroma. Taste is pleasant. Not too citrusy, fairly tame taste-wise for a beer of this nature. Fairly good malt backbone, slight caramel edge with oranges. Nice

ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Tap. Aroma: smells like sticking your nose in a bag of hops; pine sap, citrus, very floral, tropical fruits. Pours a very murky amber-light brown, about 1/4" of off-white head, average retention. Flavor is quite bitter, lots of strong pine hop flavors, some grapefruit and tropical fruits, but the pine and resin are dominant. Bitterness is impressive, but somehow the hop and malt flavors come through. Full body, medium carbonation, some astringent bitter aftertaste, which is not surprising given the amount of hops in this monster. Very interesting brew, if done in moderation.

Scopey (14253) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2011
Keg at Craft Beer Co. It pours clear amber, with a thin foamy white head. The nose is intense hop, grapefruit, resin, grass, pine, cheese and earth. The taste is resin, grass, pine, intense fiery hop, caramel sweetness and alcohol warmth, with a long, insanely bitter-dry finish. It felt like I was eating raw hops (again) and temporarily destroyed my palate. For me this is an interesting experiment, but it is too extreme to enjoy.

VsXsV (4400) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2011
On tap at Mikkeller Bar. Hazy, dark amber liquid with small off-white head. Aroma is very hoppy with notes of hop cones, grapefruit, resin, pine and some caramelly malt. Maybe some alcohol. Taste is extremely bitter and also dry. Not balanced at all, but that isnt the intention either. Scores very low on the drinkability-scale. Light to medium bodied with OK carbonation and looong finish. I had to let my mouth rest for a while before ordering the next beer, but my taste buds were a bit off a long while after. A bit of an awakening for a hop head like me, for the first time in a long time Ive considered a beer "too hoppy". All in all, a really interesting and fun creation but already the 20 cl glass that I ordered was way too much. Really nice aroma though! Gets an extra point in overall since it was a fun experience, but Im very ambivalent towards this beer. I almost felt a bit sorry for the poor fellow at the table next to me who ordered 40 cl of this.

soccer290 (225) - Highland Park, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2011
12.7 oz bottle. I really hope this is good, cause it is expensive. Pours a dark copper brown color with a huge pillowy tan head that coats the side of the glass. Smells of hops, hints of citrus or fruit, a bit of alcohol, and a lot of malt. Taste is fairly similar to the smell, but with the hops overpowering much of the flavor (assuming their is flavor in there). Not bad, but not worth the price.

gunnar (8881) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2011
Bottle at Sigmunds. Pours cloudy golden with a a small head. Aroma of cat piss and grapefruity hops and even some pine forests.Taste is malty as hell, just kidding, it is more like a hopped tea party, where everyone bring their own pot of fresh made hop tea, where pine cones float on top. Sugar anyone?

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2011
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Pours a hazy dark copper color that is completely opaque with dark golden orange hues and a two finger creamy white head. Good retention coating the glass with soapy lacing. Dry earthy hop aroma with resinous pine and a boat load of sweet malt. Lots of caramel and toffee but the hops are still prevalent. Full bodied with a dry, earthy pine hops . Kind of like biting into bark with a very dry bitter flavor that lingers throughout. A ton of malt in the backbone with lots of sweet hints of caramel, toffee, biscuit and nut. Lots of booze especially in the finish. Faint citrus and tropical fruit notes. Intense, boozy and very dry with too strong of a malt presence.

Sigmund (7315) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2011
Bottle, at local beer tasting. Deep golden to orange colour, moderate white head. Very hoppy aroma and flavour, but feels not too extreme, untill the aftertaste sets in ... OMG!

glennmastrange (2828) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle. Moderate aromas of caramel for the malt, lime for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with background notes of solvent and berry. Head is average size, frothy, off-white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is muddy light brown with lots of big chunks in it. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic and heavily bitter, then finishes lightly acidic and heavily bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a soft carbonation and has a very dry finish. Obviously a very extreme DIPA, this a fragrant hop lovers dream.

Saw mixed reviews so I never bought this in a bottle, and I finally found it on draft at farmers cabinet. Wonderful beer that really lives up to the name... extreme bitterness to please the most zealous hophead. Like me
