fiulijn (19831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Cloudy amber color; small creamy head. Very nice aroma, mellow, with sweet caramel, candies, and fruity hops (apricot jam, pineapple). Strong body; sweet caramel flavor; the hopping is resiny first of all (you can feel the resins gently attacking the tongue right after, with a light piney impression), then fruity too. The final gets a bit drier, with candi-like sweetish toffee and strong bitterness. Interesting.

rlgk (18834) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle, from a trade with Cunningham. Clear golden beer with a rich offwhite head. This is just the aroma I want from a DIPA. Fruity, hoppy and creamy. Citrus, grass, pineapple, mango, grapes, pear, pine, perfume notes, hay, lemongrass, whipped cream, vanilla notes. Hoppy grassy flavor, perfume, metal, citrus, grapefruit, pine, mango, citrus, pear notes, some pineapple, some warming alcohol. Long bitter fruity finish, pine, mango and apples, some hay and perfume. Wonderful beer, almost on the same level as Zombie Dust and other world class DIPA:s

yngwie (16718) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2010
Om tap at Patricks. It pours a hazy golden-orange body under a finger thick off-white head. There’s lots of citrus peel in the aroma. Resin and grapefruit in large amounts, and beefstocky malty sweetness as a backdrop. Some tropical fruits too. Full-bodied and chewy with a little warmth. Bitter citrusy and resiny flavor where the malts do a little more work than I would prefer. Bitter, citrus peel finish. A lovely but a bit out of balance maybe. Or maybe the problem is that there’s too much balance between the malts and the fruity flavors and the bitterness is reaching too high levels. Don’t really know, but hope to find out soon. I’ll definately have more of this. 100707

Pale amber color, small white head, lace. Medium-bodied. Light front, sweetish exotic fruityness. Late, long lingering bitterness. A bit unbalanced, but has recognizable Nogne O finger prints.
