This IPA is like drinking a hops flower, just the way it should be. From nose to color to body to tongue this beer is a perfect reflection of balance and taste.

Oj..denna går rakt in i hjärtat. Etsar fast sig i smakminnet. Inte den skarpaste humlerika doft receptorerna har fått tampats med, men ack så avvägd och perfekt detta sanna hantverk doftar. Passionsfrukt, mango ett uns tallbarr och receptorerna står givakt. Smaken är precis så oljigt, fyllig och balanserad och lång som jag vill ha den. För mig, - i denna viktklass finns inget bättre hittills..

Oh my GOD... this Double IPA is incredible. From Norway too! This can go head to head with any heavy weight American IPA. Whoa! !!

This is one of the better DIPAs that I have enjoyed. Good colour and string smell. The taste is almost like a carmel candy, leaving my mouth bitter afterwards, thus demaending more beer. I could have drink 6 or 7 of these easy. Reminds me a lot of the summer Ale Smith DIPA.

0,5l bottle from Alko. Poured a nice head, clear copper color. Loaded with hops, as an Imperial IPA should be. After the onslaught of hops I get some sweetness and a robust body, which brings a needed balance. This is very similar to Brewdog Hardcore IPA, maybe not as sweet. Aftertaste isn’t that long and is mostly all about the hops. Only downside was the amount of flaky yeast in the bottom that didn’t look too good in the bottle. Overall one of the finest samples of Imperial IPAs.

A nice sugary hop aroma. A cloudy orange brown. This is pretty good. Very dry hops right of the bat but with a lot of follow up fruitiness, mostly grapefruit but a bit of lemon too (which takes it down just a hair to me). Overall though very good.
