Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Huge creamy head with excellent duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are hops, caramel, malt, flowers and notes of fruits. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2012
Bottled. Slightly hazy amber colour with a big creamy longlasting head, which also leaves some lace. Aroma is sweet fruits, some peach and apricot, mild wood as well as some bready and nutty maltyness. Flavour is being rather similar, beginning in a nice malty way with the floral and fruity notes kicking in after a while. Pleasant and quite easy to drink IPA. larsniclas (7348) - Billdal, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2012
Bottled from Systembolaget
Hazy amber with a large, fluffy head.
Piney resin-aroma. Pretty sweet and oily.
Medium to high bitterness.
Grass, pine-needles and some tropical fruits in the flavour. JanLaursen (3226) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle, 50 cl. Light unclear amber with a stable 1/2 finger thick white head and good lace. Dry and hoppy nose, not as fruity as expected from the hops used, but rather more piney herbal, almost earthy. Taste is very dry and harsh bitter, pine needles, resin, grass. Well made, tight. Tjoxen (173) - SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2012
Pours hazy dark amber with a large white head. Aroma of caramel malt and plums. Taste of grapefruit and citrus peel with alot of bitterness. Well balanced for my taste. Great beer that surprised me!
Ktwse (5868) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Pours a cloudy amber with a medium white head. Aroma leans toward the malty side, with caramel malt and toffee. There’s some hops as well, with a bit of ripe tropical fruit, grapefruit, maybe a touch of grass. Taste is pungently bitter up front, with a slight sweetness towards the back. Remains bitter throughout, although finish is sort of abrupt (a slight pungent bitterness remains). Body is towards the light side, carbonation is low.

12-SEP-2012, bottle @home, from Barleywine.
Hazy orange with high lasting off-white head.
Very bitter with pine and grape fruit. Fruity with orange and peach.
Body is medium with a fine carbonation that makes it very easy drinking. Finish is very bitter and very long.
Very nice IPA. brnandersen (4559) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2012
Sample from 50 cl. bottle. Slightly hazy amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma with hops: Pines, apricot and grapefruit. Taste is medium bitter with a light sweetness from malts. Medium body with an oily texture and a average carbonation. Finishes bitter and fruity. Nice IPA rarbring (2290) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2012
Aroma: Soap, resin, grass, herbs, grape-fruit.
Appearance: The beer is clouded amber, lots of small bubbles, a high off-white head that leaves good lacing. Moderate curtains.
Taste: Toast, toffee, tropical sweet fruits, resin, herbs, bitter grape-fruit peel, metallic finish.
Palate: Medium low carbonation, soft, slightly watery, a dry coarse finish.
Overall: Actually it does not really deliver a deep DIPA experience to me.
