Had this on tap in Copenhagen, which I liked slightly better. However, this review is from the bottle.
A: Tawny light brown with golden highlights. rocky off white head sits atop and dissapates to a small 1 cm collar.
S: Wonderful tropical fruit aromas: Pinapple, mango, passionfruit hit the nose up front, some traditional bready malt notes poke trhough as it warms. Some cheesy hops and west coast hops are present as well. Nelson, Simcoe, cascade are noted. The aroma stays up front like a persistent perfume...IT WILL NOT PASS!!! =)
T: Many of the same notes from the aroma. Passionfruit, pinapple, grapefruit...Nelson and Simcoe hops. Marris malts? Some bread notes. Well balanced malt and hop profiles...but this is a hop bomb! Bitterness does well to work with the malt.
M: Not astringent at all..well executed with the alcohol as it is not overpowering with the hops, no fusels noted. Well cabonated, medium mouthfeel
O: This is a great hop bomb...is it to style DIPA? Maybe not, but who cares! The upfront aroma and late boil hops of a Bell's Two hearted with the back of the mouth cheese and fruit bitterness of a Surly Furious! For those all about hop bombs...don't miss this well executed beer!

One badass beer.
Appearance: Nice, a bit hazy amber in colour with a yellowish, thick head that lasted very long.
Aroma: Most double IPA's I've tasted had a very sweet or alcohol aroma, but not this one. Amazing hoppy, citrusy aroma from the bottle and even better from the glass. Very intense.
Taste: Extreme hoppy bitterness, little bit of caramel, resin and earthy flavours. Tons of citrus. No alcohol aftertaste, just how I like it.
Mouthfeel: soft carbonation, medium to high bodied.
Overall: Never have I tasted an IIPA so amazingly good. Best IIPA I've ever had and probably one of the best beers I've had so far.
Enjoyed from a teku glass.
