On draft at a bar near me, gave it a gander via a small sampler cup. Dark brownish opaque with a decent sized head. Better than average taste on this one, but just not that easy drinking. CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Bomber, had for almost a year. Poured a dark amber forming a small white head of foam. Fruity aroma almost sherry like, with light fruits like pears and apples. Flavours of dark fruits, raisins, and malts come through. I would have pegged this as an aged Imperial IPA, but the malts are heavy which in the end comes out barley wine style. Decent beer, I suppose. Geokkjer (7673) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2009

Dan’s Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #68 of 90. On tap at New Holland in Holland, MI. Pours clear golden orange. Wonderful toffee caramel nose. Sweet hop load with a very nice taste. Definitely a different DIPA style than I’m used to, but this was very much worth trying.

Growler thanks to Kevin. Pours a slightly cloudy dark amber. Slightly flat (can happen with growlers). Nose is nice with big citrus I think Centennial is definitely there. Flavor wise there is some modest bitterness up front but caramel dominates with a suprisingly thin body. Not really all that bitter. Quite sweet. Hop flavor isn’t really there either. This one needs some work but the potential is there. thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 29, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized light yellow brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy softly carbonated light brown colored body and a very good lacing. The aroma was butterey and malty. The malt hop mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a biting vinous hop aftertaste. The thick flavor contained notes ofthick biting hops. Yummy! Delicious and one I would certainly buy again. yngwie (17379) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 Bottle, 22cl. It pours a hazy, orange-golden body under a small, off-white head. Vinous, sweetish nose with alcohol, resiny hops, dried fruits and caramel. Vinous and resiny flavor with alcohol, sweetness, caramel and a delightful bitterness. Full-bodied, warm and quite low on co2. Bitter and warming finish. A lovely blend of hops and malts. 090619 gunnfryd (15645) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2009
