Bright copper amber; large hop aroma - mint, grapefruit. Chewy and bitter palate - toffeeish malts and citrusy hops, sugar tarts, leaves. Chewy hops resonate in the lingering finish. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2011
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Golden beer with a nice lasting white head. Creamy aroma, hoppy, grassy, metal notes, grapes, grapefruit and nice notes of pine apple. Fruity hoppy flavor, grapes, metal notes, creamy, some hay, grass and apples. Long bitter metal finish with perfume and fruity notes. Incredibly complex and tasty. chrisv10 (18735) - DENMARK - JUN 2, 2011

Bottled 650mljtclockwork (17654) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Golden amber color, not much head. Very strong aroma of blackcurrant leaves. Medium to full bodied. Aggressive sweet honeyish hoppyness, some blackcurrant also in the flavor. Unbalanced, not my cup of tea.
Bottle thanks to Matt! Pours clear amber with white head. Nose and taste of extreme citrus, with light pine, dry hops and coriander spices on a strong caramel malt foundation.
yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle, 22oz. (RBNAG 07) Pours an orange-golden, almost clear pour with an off-white to beige head. It sure has a hop-dominated aroma, fruity, tropical fruits and citrus, pine and resin, with a heavy maltyness in the supporting role. Nice flavor too, fruity, piney, malty, quite sweet and sure bitter. Fruity, piney, bitter finish as well. Full body. Loved this IIPA, beautiful mix of hops and malt.

Sampled from bottle @ RBBSG II. One of my big time wants thanks to tderoeck. Huge thanks Tim! Clear orange color, small to medium sized white to off - white head. Smell malts, oranges, lightly grapefruit and hops. Taste malts, hops, moderately grapefruit, medium to heavy bitter. Long lingering bitterness in the finish with a touch of fruityness. Medium to full body and carbonation. Well, it’s a very nice beer, but (maybe because of huge expectations) it’s not the gigantic 4+ I had hoped it would be. Still, I would drink this everyday if I had the chance. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 15, 2010
A: Deep amber color, hazy, thin off-white head.
S: Tons of citrus, mostly orange. Nice piney, resinous finish. It’s got my mouth watering already.
T: A burst of grapefruit and orange initially, followed by a caramel sweetness and a bit of alcohol on the finish. Bitter, but not overly so.
M: Very smooth, great body, and perfect level of carbonation.
D: Despite the high ABV and the slight alcohol bite, this one has such great flavors that you could drink it all day. Dedollewaitor (16545) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2009
Bottle @ Odense smagning, august 2009. Pours hazy orange with a small creamy head and lacings. Nose is deep... Lots of exotic fruits. Pine and orange. Smooth and crisp and with a lovely malty balance. Caramel, pine and grapefruit. Lovely djd07 (16314) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle as shown. Pours a hazy yellow gold with small frothy off white head thats lasts awhile. The aroma is a strong floral hop and citrus. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet citrus hop and wheat with light bitterness on the finish. Hides alcohol well making it easy to drink, a very good IIPA from Three Floyds.
