willisread (2800) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Huge grapefruit and tropical fruit nose with some sweet malt in there as well. Sweet on the palate but well-balanced. Lots of juicy, hop bitterness: orange juice, grapefruit, mango and bready malts all over the palate. Hides the booze pretty well for the abv. Just a big in your face Double IPA. Nice sweet finish with big bitterness that lingers. Very fruit forward.

UXO (1583) - CANADA - FEB 20, 2016
Appearance: cloudy pale amber, short eggshell head, good retention and no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: caramel malt, pine, citrus, floral, nutty. (5/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-high bitter. (5/10) Palate: medium-full body, moderate-low carbonation, sweet malty and bitter finish. (3/5) Malt forward caramelly DIPA that is exactly the style I dont like. Mind you, its months past its BB, so thats probably a factor - Im sure any hop character it might once have had is long faded. I think Im going to bring this back to Co-Op and yell at them for putting expired stuff in their Beer Discovery packs. Its honestly the worst Mikkeller Ive ever had. Reminds me of Green Gold, but even more malt forward, almost toffee. And, actually, when I think about that in the context of some of the other hoppy Mikkeller brews Ive had, with truly stupidly long shelf lives, I start thinking maybe its not age at all. Still gonna go yell at Co-Op though. And no, Mikkeller, you arent beating much with this. (11/20)

androman (1900) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2016
33cl shared bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest (Expired 6 months ago). Nose is citric, tropical fruits, parfume, glue. Body is opalescent orange, head is medium, beige, creamy, mostly lasting, good lacing. Aroma is honey, tropical fruits, grass, peach, apple, grapefruit, spices. Medium to heavy sweet, light bitter, light fruity sour. Finish is long lasting hoppy medium bittersweet, light citric sour, further developing quinine heavy bitter, alcohol is slightly present. Full body, slick texture, soft carbonation. Not quite easy, very tasty, perfect balance, not overhopped, flavorful, fantastic IPA.

Amber hazy with medium off-white creamy head. Nice fruity aroma. Pleasant strong bitterness with sour citrusy notes, some touch of sweet. Long lasting strong bitterness in the aftertaste

bulldogops (2320) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2015
Rating #1472 - 27.02.2015 On tap @underground_yeg. Pours a darker amber, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is doughy, pastry malt, and a bold punch of pine, citrusy, grapefruit hops in the mix. Taste is boldly hopped, pastry dough malt meets the fruit bomb, lots of pine resin, and citrus notes throughout. Beats me.

mariuspoenari (1819) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Pours a hazy golden brown with a decent head. Smells of honey, caramel and flowers. Smooth texture, tastes like strawberries, huge notes of honey, a slight bitterness to balance the sweetness. The alcohol is almost undetectable.

drjoeng (946) - SINGAPORE - NOV 4, 2015
9.75%ABV. Imperial IPA. Tapped out a deep amber. 18SRM. Nose is sweet, with aromas of fresh warm barley bread, roasted acorns and some other rich nutty aromas of roasted almond, hazelnut and pecans. Mouthfeel syrupy and soapy. Palate has a funkly umami that is reminiscent of sardines or any other equivalent small oily fish in a tin. There are of course nutty, roasty, caramel and toffee like flavours. There was a sweet alcoholic palate which I for me was just a little much. A very personal thing. I wouldnt say it was a bad thing, just not for me. Finish is bitter and a little cloying. I guess that was the play on words they were hoping for "IBU". Well there certainly was plenty of BUs to go around!

Caramel cloudy look. It has a light citric aroma, but not much. Perhaps its too cold. Very rich and sweet taste.
