33cl bottle pours slightly hazy copper with gold hues and thin dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up pine hops, earthy hops, spicy hops and a black pepperiness. Around the edges it seems floral and a touch soapy. The taste has a big spicy to pine bitterness going on that is rimmed by a nice level of dank hop earthiness and then faint hints of floral hops. This is tasting real good with robust levels of both bitter and flavor hops creating a rich experience. It ends with lingering hop bitterness. I dig it.

BOLTZ7555 (3022) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2012
14 karat pour with a small ivory head. Aroma and flavor are extremely leafy, resinous, and sappy. Evergreen-laden, tangerine-filled, and pithy. Bitter, dank, but drinkable. Didnt get the eye-crossing alcohol pop that I was expecting at 10%. Pretty damn good.

Lilja (3100) - Malm, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2012
Mycket smak av humle och en angenm beska. Smak av tropisk frukt, grape. Lite oljig i konsistensen. Trevlig.

larsga (7470) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2012
Small white head. Hazy deep yellow body with particles. Deep tropical fruit and apricot aroma with orange marmalade and resin notes. Bitter-sweet orangey resin taste with tropical fruit notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish, hot mouthfeel. Dry orangey mineraly aftertaste with chalky mealy notes. Nice, but unbalanced. (0.33l bottle. I failed to note who from.)

On tap at Bishops Arms, Copenhagen. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Fruity hop aroma extravaganza, lemons and pine. Taste is raw, resiny bitter, whole pinecones, lingering bitter and fresh finish. HoooHooray

ddemmingjr (799) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2012
11.2 oz bottle: pours clear, deep golden orange, fluffy, fine off white head. Fair amount of lacing. Nose is grapefruit, apricot, herbal, caramel malts, resin hops. More of the same on the palate, fluffy, bubbles coming to the surface, thick. Spicy, resinous hops and huge alcohol burn on a huge finish that lingers. Sweet then spicy. Real nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 18, 2012
[5/14/12] Draught at The Bishops Arms in Copenhagen. Clear deep golden-copper. Aroma of piney and resinous hops, somewhat citric, with a bit of alcohol. Flavor has some thick malt and some sweetness and finishes bitter, hoppy, grapefruity and alcoholic. Medium-bodied, a bit oily. Quite good, a bit malty for my liking.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Tap at MikkellerBar. Full haze orange. Small thicker off white head with spotty lace. Nose is fruity with apricot. Vanilla and pineapple dessert. Taste is sugary, oily, rich. No astringency and no tannic palate wrecker horse crap. Vey nice. Thicker and dessert profile DIPA.

teorn88 (7632) - Rimini, ITALY - MAY 13, 2012
On tap at Cask P&C, London. It pours a slightly hazy deep golden orange color with nice creamy off-white head. Aroma is hop forward with tropical fruits and peaches over a nice caramely malty backbone. Taste is nicely balanced between the bitter hoppy notes and the sweetness from malt and alcohol. Mango, papaya, violets, grass, caramel, spices, pink peppercorns and a tad of acidity that gives great drinkability to a 10% ABV beer. Mouthfeel is oily with good carbonation. Overall, this would be a nice DIPA in its own merit, but spices and that slight acidity make it unique and amazing.
