Sweet and spicy aromas. A light copper brew with good carbonation. Flavor is intensely hoppy, but surprisingly well balances with a fair amount of sweet malts on the backside. Finish is long an bittering. Big spruce-floral notes. Not that fruity, althought the sweet malts may lead that way a little. Not as good as Double Jack, IMO.

Draught, 7.7%. Sweet hoppy aroma. Cloudy grey yellow colour. The flavour starts off with a distinct teaish note. Becomes a little sweet and then slightly alcohol. Finishes with a distinct but clean bitterness. Nisse666 (7427) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2011

Very hoppy taste. Nice aroma. So hoppy it is almost tart. Tart palate. Nice but strong IPA magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 9, 2011
Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a thin white head with good lacing. Smells strongly of hops, grass and citrus. Tastes of grapefruit and a strong bitterness. Medium body. Finishes dry and bitter.
Very bitter, but well balanced and tasty.

Usually 75+IBU beer ends up tasting like grapefruit juice, but this stuff is actually fairly mild, in a good way. There’s a grainy, bready aspect to it, maybe a little citrus. It’s not as extreme as I had heard, and I think that made it more drinkable. It’s a solid beer, but not especially memorable. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2012
Bottle. Aroma is fruity pine, mango, some light malt. Flavour is deep bitterness, fruity and herbal. Long lingering bitterness. StueyD (1583) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2012
Dark amber yellow coloured beer with a frothy white head. Strong green hop aroma, grassy and resinous. Dry mouthfeel. Dry hop flavours, grassy and resinous. Then there is a slightly bitter citrus fruit peel taste that lasts until the finish.

Pours a copper brown on tap with thick white head and good lacing. Aroma is hops: piney, grassy, and citrusy. Taste follows suit, with a bitter, dry finish. Patrickctenchi (6590) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Bomber: into snifter.
Cloudy orange with frothy off-white head.
Aroma is strong floral, bitter orange.
Taste is pine, light fruit, bitter spice.
Overall, hugely hopped bitter and peppery.
If you want bitter, this is the tastebud stomping SOB for you.
At the start I detected some nice fruit tones:pear, pineapple....but the hop bombardment extinguished that quickly.
Good beer, but one for the BIG IPA crowd to be sure.
