From the 12oz can. Beautiful cloudy amber with a foamy lasting head. Big clean hops aroma. Full body propels a mellow bitter with some sweetness balanced with salt in the middle. Mellows further to a soft aftertaste. Overall this is a lovely, well behaved DIPA. This will become a house regular.
(Keg at Sori Taproom, 20170725) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had pine, resin and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were pine, resin, caramel, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste had resin, malts and bitterness. A hoppy brew dominated by resin but still balanced. Well done.

Ravfarvet og lettere diset Imperial IPA med lille flygtig offwhite skumkrone på 1/2 cm. Svinder til kant og overflade.
Sødlig, lettere maltet, aroma henad frugtmarmelade med tropiske frugter.
Smagen er indledningsvis lettere sødlig, men bliver ganske hurtigt invaderet af en kraftig humlebitterhed, som skydes helt op i det beske område i smagsafslutningen. Noter af appelsin, harpiks, gran og lidt sprittet.
Man bemærker den bløde mundfølelse i en næsten cremet konsistens, dog mest olieret. Karboneringen er et niveau under medium, og kroppen er solid fyldig.
Overall: Ganske velsmagende og kraftig bitter DIPA.
40 cl på fad, 9.1 % ABV, nydt på Kompasset på Østerbro.

On tap at New Seasons in Beaverton, OR. Beautiful hazy orange pour with a one-finger white head. Lovely clear aroma of fruits and resin. Flavor is nicely matched to aroma, but overpowered by an intense booziness. Medium oily mouthfeel and nice bitterness. I would love this if it weren’t so hot. meccahh69lol (223) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - JUN 9, 2017
This is a fine, drinkable DIPA that lives up its namesake. The aroma is dank and resinous, oozing hop nastiness, and the appearance is a nice, slightly cloudy yellow haze. The taste is sharp, slightly bitter hops with a lingering splooge of Blaisian smoke bombs. It hides it’s 9.1%abv well, goes down like more of a 7%er. Good for banging some Carly Rae Jepsen on repeat while lamenting the lack of good Carly Rae Jepsen t-shirt options for sale online. Maybe we need to make our own?

Draft at Bottle Revolution rdu. Good aroma, strong on pine, hints of citrus, orange mainly. Clean golden orange color, good head, faded to a ring, ok lace. Fairly bitter, lightly sweet flavor. Heavy body, thick creamy oily mouthfeel, fairly bitter/harsh finish. It’s good for an IIPA, kind of hot. Surprised by the head and lace as usually I find these big Beer lack them. Little short of great, but solid enough
