UPDATED: AUG 7, 2011 65 cl bottle from lbutikken. Hazy amber/orange liquid with small, thick, off-white head. Hoppy aroma with lots of citrus and notes of grapefruit, tropical fruit and caramelly malt. Taste is heavily bitter and light sweetness. Nice but not balanced. More malty in the taste. Medium bodied and nice carbonation. Overall, nice DIPA.

Tried on tap at The Monk. The nose was the best feature, lovely aroma of hops. Fairly murky looking straw body with a decent head. Expecting more bitterness to come through in the taste, grapefruit then orange. Solid IIPA which was a mouthful.

22 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a beautiful frothy, rocky white head. Aroma holds notes of ruby red grapefruit, orange zest, pine needle, a touch of pot, freshly mowed grass, and some lemon. Also some beautiful sweet nectar fruit present, notably apricot. Flavor holds more bitter floral and pungent hops than in the nose, but with the return of the citrus presence and great evergreen and grass notes. Palate is very very supple and well rounded. An excellent DIPA.

Draught at the Publick House, Brookline, MA.
Hazy yellow colour with small white head. Strong fruity American hops and lots of bitterness in aroma. Very strong bitter hops, heavy dark bitterness and some mild alcohol in flavour. Mild alcohol burning. Thick. Strong lasting bitterness.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2011
Shared this bottle at the BrewDog Bar, Edinburgh. A chunky golden colour with a thick white head. Resinous hop aroma of pine and passionfruit with some barley undertones. Oily mouth-feel with flavours of passionfruit, pineapple, mango and pine. Light chewy malt and very bitter, which I like! Superb!

22oz bomber. Pours a cloudy orange gold with a thick white head. Aroma is intensely hoppy - lots of green resiny sticky hops along with hints of fruit and honey. The flavor is quite nice - an excellent double IPA due to its balance and dryness (many tend to be cloying and too big). Some malt sweetness up front with hints of muffins and then big doses of resiny and grapefruity hops. Firm bitterness and dry finish - great hoppy aftertaste with excellent balance for such a bitter beer and far from too sweet for such a big beer. Overall, quite drinkable for such a big beer. Very good.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Golden appearance with a white head. The aroma is strong pine. Flavors are strong citrus, primarily grapefuit. Very smooth for this strong of an IPA. Short-lived and dry aftertaste.

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Pours cloudy orange with off white head. Intense hop aroma citrus, resiny pine, malts, excellent. Smells very fresh for a 4 month old bottle. Intensity doesnt let up in the taste, as the hops are in your face from the get go, nice lingering bitter finish on the back end. Big and bold, just like a true DIPA should taste. Cheers.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Pours a lacing beige head with a murky, golden body that has some floaties. Aromas of grass and mild citrus. Flavors of lemongrass, orange rind, some malt sweetness. Finish is bitter and dry.
