Pours an amber with nice head and lacing.

Nose is real potent hops. I get mint, a slightly candied NZ hop quality. Red fruit hops. Mango.

Taste is similar, NZ-y hops over a grainy, slightly cereal-y background. A slightly chlorine-y malt presence.

Mouthfeel is substantial- chlorine-y, pine-y malt.

This is a really solid beer; not classically American style, it could easily pass as an American Strong Ale.

Main detraction is a slightly dry alcoholic finish. Other than that it's got a pretty unique/distinct profile but no doubt there's a lot of flavour.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: golden amber with some lacing and no visible carbs
S: not too much on the nose for a DIPA. It is however a balanced pine, floral and sugar malt profile from what I could find
T: sits evenly with lemon, sugar and warm bread.
M: mediums light and really drinkable
O: this beer is pricey. But it is a solid example of how an IPA can be made without just hop blasting the palate. Enjoyable and will drink again if find on tap

Serving type: on-tap

4.3/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Beautiful color: amber with orange reflex, very clear. Long lasting white head. At the nose there is a reminiscence of bergamot and obviously a lot of resin/herbs.
The beer is very smooth but also very bitter, quite warming but all the sensations are in great balace. The taste is very elegant with the bitter from the hops that seems to last forever.

4.44/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: clear dark amber / copper color with a thin white head and an OK lacing, but not great (due to low temperature of the beer).

Aroma: a metric ton of hops: fruits, pine, grass. Also some caramel and earthy notes, but very subtle. Alcohol is also present, but it's in the back and doesn't bother me that much. It is an Imperial IPA so you kinda have to expect some alcohol notes in the aroma I guess.

Taste: citrus, caramel, lots and lots of bitterness and some sweetness in the back as well. No traces of alcohol in taste, but it warms you pretty nicely. A bit of pineapple aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: medium to low carbonation, medium to full bodied.

Overall: very good IIPA. Better than BrewDog's Hardcore IPA (and therefore better than I Hardcore You), but not the best IIPA from Mikkeller (best one I had so far was 1000 IBU). Really nice beer, worth reccomending.

Enjoyed from a teku glass.
