olio (10819) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2013
33 cl bottle. BBE 21.11.2014.Thoor84 (67) - ICELAND - FEB 13, 2013
Pours hazy amber-golden color with a huge, frothy head. Aroma of exotic fruits, fresh floral hops, some subtle goose berry bush and faint caramel. Flavor of harsh bitter hops, orange, some mandarin, light caramel notes, hay and goose berries. Sadly some "danish berries" on the aftertaste. Very bitter fruity palate with a bit too harsh bitter finish. Nice aroma but the taste is a bit off.
Very hoppy, both in aroma and taste. grapefruit, pineapple, passionfruit type flavor/aroma - seems to be Nelson and Simcoe that dominates, maybe Citra .. love this hop concept - Awesome! LoFi (1763) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2013
Hazy amber with an off-white head.
Large hoppy aroma with peach, lemon, grapefruit, soapy, popcorn.
Taste: peach, soap, pine and resin, large bitterness, soapy and floral, tropical nectar, sweet, caramel.
Medium bodied, moussy.
Very nice fresh hoppiness. ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 10, 2013
Brightcloudy orange gold with a big creamy white head. Lovely lacing in the glass. Citrus orange aroma, bready malt and some lush pungent hops. Huge flavour, hops dominate, more orange, sharp orange zest with a lush malty backbone. Mouthfeel is robust and slick, oily hops line the palette. Carbonation is tight but not flat. Finish lasts for a long time. Insanely hoppy and very enjoyable. haukur (2168) - Kópavogur, ICELAND - FEB 10, 2013
Cloudy yellow. I have no idea why Mikkel has made an IPA that simulates the smell of cat piss, and the taste as well (although I have never tasted cat piss!). Over the top and unbalanced. Bitterness was nice but did not save this beer. Will have to rerate though, only had this as a 200ml sampler

330ml bottle @Cimmeria. Nice citrus, herbal, fresh hop aromas. Pours hazy dark gold, with frothy white head, persistent, some lacing. Medium body and carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is quite bitter, smooth, some sweetness due to high abv, citrusy, alcohol noticed. Aftertaste is long, quite dry and warm.
Botella de 330ml en Cimmeria,Oviedo. Aromas cítricos, herbales, lúpulos frescos. color dorado oscuro, algo turbia, con gran corona blanquecina, cremosa y persistente, con algo de encaje. Cuerpo y carbonatación medias, textura algo crujiente. Sabores cñitricos, amargor marcado y asequible, con algo de dulzor probabolemente proveniente de su alto abv, el alcohol se nota pero no tapa. Retrogusto amargo, largo y "calentador". Beermack (725) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2013
33cl bottle from Drinkstore, Dublin. Pours hazy light orange with clean white head - plenty of thick lacing. Aroma is sweet orange, mango, grapefruit, sugar, citrus and peach. Taste is a big hit of pithy grapefruit and zesty orange peel followed by sweet peach and tropical fruits; some lemon in there too. Light bready malt backbone - not too sticky or overly sweet. Hefty degree of bitterness - lots of bitter orange and sappy pine costs the mouth. Booze warmth as it goes down; alcohol not as well integrated as in some DIPAs but that's not much of an issue. Lots of great flavour going on throughout - a lovely beer to match the wonderful art on the label. gbe75 (134) - ICELAND - FEB 6, 2013
A good addition to the dIPA beers. Full bodied and long bitter finish. Nice label on the bottle.
