0.33l bottle. Finally! The Final Frontier. After countless attempts to try this, finally it’s in my glass. The Overall frontier was actually the very first beer I ever had at Mikkeller Bar, and I can’t count on one hand how many times I though I bought this, but actually bough First frontier. Well, enough of that. This one looks lovely in the glass. A tall and superbly lacing just off-white almost fluffy head over a near glowing deep orange colored cloudy body. The aroma, oh, it’s peachy and nectarine fruity. Piney hopped with tones of blackcurrants, fresh lime peel, and a generic citrusness. Lovely. It tastes just as good, actually. It’s nice and oily in the mouth and it’s just about average, almost creamy and growing on the carbonation. Super piney with a hefty load of hoppy bitterness. Again, it has this nectarine fruitiness. Not peach but nectarines. It’s also slightly mandarin peel and almost a little marmalade bitter. Just lovely tasting and well worth the wait! 28.10.2016

330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a misty gold with a fervent off-white head. Aroma can be slotted in the category of exotic fruits. Taste is hefty sweet malt, with pine echoes and additional peach and mango shades. Good DIPA.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Unfiltered. Peach, mango, melon aroma, hops, pine and malt. Flavor is prickly malt, hops, fruit, pinecone and spice. Sweet just so, hop and malt dominate. Amazingly drinkable and highly addictive. Never had a 9% non-stout drink like this.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
wtf i though i had rated this already.
cloudy yellow, smooth white head.
extremely intense quite yellow fruity (belgian yellow fruity) aroma, also with a little of exotic fruits. i am rating the aroma with the glass 40cm from my nose, it’s that intense. Getting up close i also sense some pine and some more bitter hoppy notes. The fruitiness adds character, i usually don’t like dipa with fruits as it tends to go towards cloying, but this one works really well.
Flavor is also very fruity and flowery, but way high on hop bitterness as well. malts are there, making a very solid malty base, but the hops are all over it, and while malts may be the stage, the hops are definetly the band playing the music. If you like your dipa a little fruity then you will certanly love this beer.

Bottle at home from Party Source from notes. Pours a hazy copper color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, toasted malts, citrus, resiny hops, definitely more malty than hoppy DIPA, more sweetness than bitterness, ok.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Piwo super treściwe, chmielne, olejki, wyczulem eucaliptus, tak mi się kojarzylo lub cukierki bo do tego wrazenia doszło sporo słodyczy. Alkohol niewyczuwalny, slodowo chmielne i pachnące bardzo intensywnie. Wyglad to spora piana średnio trwala, bardzo mętne blotno piaskowej barwy. Super DIPA

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Közepes, nagyon tartós hab, félbarna szín, szűretlen. Citrusos, gyantás, komlós illat. Íze nagyon intenzív és gazdag, déligyümölcsös, őszibarackos. Édeskés, nagy testtel rendelkező, nagyon keserű, közepes szénsavtartalommal. Az erős keserűt kiválóan egyensúlyozza ki a gyümölcsössége. Szuper sör.

Slightly hazy amber color, big white head. Aroma of peach, melon, mango, flowers, citrus. Taste of caramel, bubblegum, candy, lots of fruitiness. Too sweet for its own good, I dont see the claimed IBU here. Full body, soft carbonation.
