The tomahawk, cascade and amarillo hops did a great job. Palate perfect. Absolutely pleased to have tasted this one. DutchDrebus (6191) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2011
My favorite hops are in this beer. Has a nice hoppy taste and smell. Comes in a nice big 75cl bottle to share with friends. BREWMUSKCLES (2743) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 11, 2011
smooth and a bit slick with mild carbonation that is soft. Fresh aroma and flavor of malt just from the Farm and a nice American style hop of Grapefruit and Pine that is just under the surface and pronounced until the finish. Good full body and light alcohol with mild sweetness delivered fresh at the Rattle and Hum NYC. Beerygeek (36) - NEW ZEALAND - JUN 8, 2011
One definately tastes the product of the yeast’s work in this beer. A rich malty taste, and phenolics on the tongue as one would expect with this style. Well worth a pint. Pwn3d (1958) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 3, 2011
At the farmers cabinet with eli. Toasty but funky vinegar aroma. Taste is cherry, vinegar... Characteristics of a sour ale but lightens in the mouth before it gets too aggressively sweet or tart. Interesting and fun to drink.

Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Pours a hazy pink rose with a yellowish tan head settling in with minimal density. Nice sticky lace remains by the grace of God. The aroma on this is just off- unpleasant funkiness like acetone and paint thinner with a hefty dose of older cheesy hops. Lots of strawberry pancake syrup in the nose typical of old DIPA. Taste is sweaty and salty with something like cranberry skin tannins and tree bark creating some unwanted bitterness. Body is syrupy, strawberry heavy, earthy and sickly bitter, with a finale of acetone. Almost unpalatable. My impression of this beer is that Mikkel took one of his De Proef DIPA recipes and decided to spike with Brett at the end. This keg has zero Brett presence in a good way and rather gained acetone, nail polish, sweat, and off-character while retaining the old DIPA character. tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Draft. Pour is hazy amber with a yellow/off-white head. Aroma is big pine/citrus hops, a bit of brett must, caramel. Flavor is intense citrus/pine hops, some breadiness, no brett. Palate is chalky, bitter. barncatmatt (2355) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2011

Hazy darkish amber beer. Dry palate with a soft, almost creamy edge. Frothy in the mouth. Rich peppery hops deliver bitterness but not overly aggressive. Slightly aniseedy finish.
