MikeJslc (778) - USA - MAY 21, 2013
Copper, clear, beige head. Aroma of nutty, toasty malt with a little toffee, a woody earthy character, spicy hops. Flavor is similar, with a malty balance, a woody, spicy hop character (sortof Northern Brewer-like) and a light citrus note. Maltier than an American style IPA, with. different hop character. Interesting beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

douglas88 (8749) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle from HWC. Pours a mostly cloudy deep copper color with a medium thick white head. A rich nose of caramel and fruity hops, some grapefruit. A rich fruity hop flavor, light yeast, something almost peppery, some candied fruit. Odd in some ways, very different than American IIPAs, more mellow and the hops don’t really shine in some ways. Still, drinkable and pretty nice.

Doghair (312) - Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Dark orange with white foam. Hop and malt aroma. More malt than I expected. Some sweetness. I don’t get any definable hops. Well balanced flavor. Malt, hops, some caramel, orange peel with a lingering bitter finish.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - MAY 9, 2013
Pours a deep orange colour with a bunch of floaty bits I’m not too sure about. The aroma is fresh and hoppy, candied orange, grapefruit, with an undertone of caramel. The flavour reflects this to a t, ends on a semi dry candied citrus not that trails off until the next sip. Good stuff, not sure about the floaty bits though. . . .

RichardGretton (4713) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy amber beer with a strong whitish head. The aroma is malty and vinous, and the flavour is deeply sweet and roasted with plenty of hopped bitterness. Overall a really nice malty, roasted and bitter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle from Oslo Bar & Bowling. Small white head. Hazy orange body. Very hoppy aroma, fruity, pine, spices. Bitter finish. A good, rich IPA, perhaps a little too bitter for my taste.

Pours orange colour with creamy white head. Aroma of citrus, orange and caramel. Creamy, piny and orange, towards grapefruit taste with extremely dry, bitter, citrusy and piney finish. Lovely

Borresteijn (6670) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2013
50cl Bottle from De Hopduvel, Gent. Hazy light-amber/orange colour, white head. Aroma of clementines, oranges, lemon, some grapefruit, a bit of caramel, just light buttery. Flavour is medium-sweet, oranges, bittersweet grapefruit, light yeasty, some lemon sweetness, nice bitter grapefruit hoppy finish. Medium-bodied, good mouthfeel. My kind of DIPA.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2013
Bottle @ home, thans benzai! Aroma is big bready malt and massive hops, fruity, herbal and spicy. Flavour is a big lasting bitterness fading from sweet fruity hops to spicy herbal hops. Long bready and caramel malt note, intermingling with the hops. Nice.
