UPDATED: JUL 20, 2011 Draught at Ølbaren, København, Denmark.Nuffield (4167) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Slight hazy deep golden colour with small white head.
Belgian yeast, apples, applesauce, berries and fruity hops in aroma.
Flavour is much more bitter hoppy with apples and citrus.
Draught at the brewery.
Cloudy golden colour with small to average sized white head.
Quite mild piney bitter hoppy aroma.
Strong bitter hoppy flavour with pine, resin and fruity American hops. Full bitterness in aftertaste.
I had this after having the Grant Teton Lost Continent and I thought this was the lesser of the double IPAs. Lighter color, with less richness of flavor, and more unique but not altogether balanced aroma--hops but also sharper with some other notes. Finishes in a slightly ambivalent manner.

12 oz. bottle (thanks Jon!), pours golden yellow with a medium white head. Aroma and flavour of pungent piney hops, some citrus and nice caramel malt backbone. Pretty much the in-between of the regular IPA and Un*Earthly. halfonit (1356) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Poured a light golden color. Aroma was of hops, citrus, and caramel. Flavor is pretty much the same with a nice and crisp hop presence. Leaves a nice hoppy bite. A good one from our friends in Lakewood. Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2010
Bottle. Bright clear golden yellow colour. with a minuscule white head. Aroma has a full caramel malt structure with a very fresh citrusy hop-profile, giving a trace of pineapple and grass. Taste is very dry with a quite substantial hoppy bitterness. Lots of grass and pineapple. Very refreshing and nicely complex. Medium body, low carbonation, slick, slightly oily texture. Not as heavy-duty as one would expect from an IIPA, but entirely enjoyable.

12oz bottle from 16th St Liquor in West Vancouver. Pours clear golden with white head. Aroma is loaded with dank hops and citrus, with a bit of pine. Flavours of bitter hops, pine, citrus, and some malt. Finishes bitter with a little malty sweetness. Very good IPA that falls only slightly short of the ST Unearthly IIPA. Labelling (name) is a tad confusing since this is being marketed as an IPA not an IIPA. Jow (3896) - New York, USA - SEP 2, 2010
On tap at Back 40’s final crab boil of the summer. I had this on cask which I can never resist although i honestly don’t enjoy them as much as standard tap but i can’t remember that until after. Tastes is only slightly hoppy and bitter. kinda watery for a DIPA. got some citrus and banana and grass but thats it. ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Pours light yellow with a white head. By far the lightest color double ipa I’ve seen. Aroma is hugely juicy hops with just a hint of sweet malt. Crisis tangerine grapefruit. Smells great. Flavor is just as juicy with a hint of malt sweetness. Really nice beer. Southern tier does doubles really well. larsga (7508) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2010
Medium offwhite head. Brassy body with carbonation. Strong mango and oranges aroma with strawy floral notes. Dry-sweet strawy malty grapefruit taste with dusty tropical fruit notes. Full-bodied. Hot, faintly sharp mouthfeel. Dry-bitter aftertaste is pretty much like main taste. Clean, fresh, straightforward double IPA. It’s highly drinkable and good, but a bit hot and not very complex. (0.35l bottle, Vika wine monopoly, Oslo.) RasmusOtt (2733) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2014 Alot of pine-needles in the Aroma along with some sour fruits and hops. Taste is very sharp and bitter with all the sour fruits, hops, spice and pines. A nice long end.
