BeerNeedy (126) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 18, 2013
From a 12 oz bottle, this DIPA had a citrusy aroma not normally found in European offerings. Poured a cloudy orange with a medium head and strong lacing throughout. To be fair, this wasnt my first IPA of the night and so the rating may be a bit low.

Turboninja (588) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 7, 2016
[email protected], Tampere, Finland. Medium aroma with dry slightly sour fruits, resin and some hops. Darker yellow color with small, natural white head. Averagely hazy liquid. Strong, full, almost too vivid taste with overaged, dry fruits, resin, a lot of hops. Some citrus and a hint of soft, milky notes. Balanced with wide taste spectrum and long hoppy aftertaste with fruits. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, quite superb DIPA combining nicely American sweet nuances and bitter aromas making it more refreshing. Still, a huge amount of different tastes is almost too much.

Alengrin (4713) - BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2016
At Gollems Swedish Beerweekend in Antwerp. Very thick, dense, egg-white, tightly lacing head over a hazy orange blonde beer with ochre-ish hue. Aroma of dried grapefruit peel, biscuit, chestnut even, dried onion, dry cardboard, hay, old apples, lemon zest, pine resin, oude jenever, some dried mango. Fruity onset, clean with hints of dried mango, orange, kiwi and passion fruit, sweet and sourish, fizzy carbonation but still smooth and full mouthfeel. Somewhat bready malt middle with a biscuit touch, supporting a long hop bitter finish, grapefruity and hayish, floral too, but not as lush and tropical as in many contemporary IIPAs, peppery and even a bit earthy, accompanied by warming, gin-like alcohol. Aromatic enough, but not as overwhelming as many other IIPAs, probably because of the bottles age - I expect a stronger American aroma from something dry-hopped with Simcoe, Centennial and Columbus. Nevertheless an impressive beer, enjoyed it a lot.

Pineapple pine woody smells. Oooh the taste is a bit of a rollercoaster ride, quite sweet and resiny. Smell grows on me after the taste. Yeah a good ipa, not harsh for abv

Finally got around to reviewing this absolute classic. 2 finger white head that leaves great lacing on the glass. Very hazy, deep orange coloured beer. Aroma is wonderful. Fresh orangejuice, pineapples, grapefruit and some spicyness aswell. Taste is lots of grapefruit & orange bitterness just assaulting your mouth, along with some of that aforementioned pineapple in the backend aswell as some breadyness at the very back. It?s a big, big, palatedominating beer but also very delicious and drinkable so be careful with this one. Oily on the palate but not thick. Simply put, one of the best DIPAs out there in my opinion as one would except from Omnipollo.
