On tap at Beer Temple in Amsterdam, November 2010.
Dark golden with a medium creamy white head. Nice fruity aroma, especially pineapple. A lot of hops but also malt to make a good balance. Nice bitterness. A good and fresh beer. Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Hazy golden orange pour with fair light khaki head. Sweet clean citrusy, in some ways spicy, medium chewy body, with a clean finish. Lingering pleasant light bittereness. The hops are definitely used for flavoring as oppossed to bitterness, and thats a okay by me...

straight from the bottle .... citrus aroma with some pine ... thick mouth feel ..... bitter up front and in the finish .... caramel malt shows up in the aftertaste ... good balance between the bitter citrus rind and pine with some malty sweetness egajdzis (6501) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing. Aroma of pine, citrus, resiny hops, caramel malts, and light alcohol. Taste of citrus, pine, grapefruit, sticky caramel malts, and a bitter finish with light alcohol as well. reggiedunlop (3717) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2010
pours a very light golden color with a creamy looking medium white head...slightly lively looking...very nice retention and lacing. aroma is a touch sweet and has loads of citrus...grapefruit, pineapple...with a hint of spice that reminds me of saaz hops. sweetness of the aroma is lost in the flavor...spicyness is present up front (still reminiscent of saaz hops) while the end has dry grapefruit and is slightly tea-like. mouthfeel is lively and sticky at the same time with a very dry, earthy lingering finish. very tasty but i wish the citrus wasnt lost to dryness quite as much. lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2010
355 ml bottle @ Konttori, Tampere.LoFi (1714) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2010
Pours a dark, slightly unclear yellow colour with a medium-sized, foamy and very lacy head. Aroma of pine needles, a fair amount of hops (Centennial and Amarillo at least) with some sweet tones. Malty backbone with some pine needles. Alcohol warming finish with citrus and hops. Pleasant DIPA and kudos for the small bottle.
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2011 Draught. Light amber with a white head. Aroma: citrus, pineapple, lots of hops. Taste: pineapple, citrus, hops, some caramel in the background. Medium bodied. This is really good, I was expecting more of a heavy DIPA. I for one like them much maltier than this.
All-right, felt like having it again, this time a bottle.
Dark golden, nice-looking off-white head with a creamy top. Aroma: fruity, caramel. Taste: peaches, oranges, lemons, herbal, a hint of nuts, butterscotch, not a very high bitterness. Medium-bodied, soft carbonation.
