look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

11.2 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: The beer poured a miniminalistic head that reduced quickly to an outer rim of foam. It is an amber crimson color with some clarity and floaties that I was trying to avoid that are in the beer.

Smell: nice caramel and bready malts, citrus, tangerine, and graperfrut notes too. Some alcohol on the nose, but that is expected.

Taste: Everything you expect from the aroma with some bitterness and bozziness towards the end. Still very tasty.

Mouthfeel: smooth, full bodied, medium carbonation, easy to drink, a little boozy, some drynessm, and delicious.

Overall: A pretty standard DIPA from Denmark and happy to have added t to my lineup of delicious brews. Good to have gotten this bottle for a good price and can't wait to try out the second half to this black and tan.

3.66/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: medium orange hue with a light haze and a moderately strong effervescence. Head is a thin finger of frothy ivory foam. Not too bad.

Smell: strong hop aroma which is mostly floral but has some citrusy and earthy character too. It works for me!

Taste: caramelly malt flavor with a big hop character which is floral, green and a little dank. Bitterness is a little light for the style but OK. Not too bad, but kind of muddled.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a great carbonation and creaminess. Bam!

Overall: the flavor is muddled and not well balanced in my opinion. Not a terrible beer, but also not one that really grabs me.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pour is dark copper, strong haze and a dense yellowish white head with some large bubbles. Nose is strong pine, light citrus, notes of caramel and a touch of cardboard. Taste has more pine, cardboard, lots of malt, caramel, brown sugar, a touch sticky. Full bodied with assertive carb. Some residuals left.

4.01/5  rDev +5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear, ruddy amber with a fluffy, thick whitish head. Head retention is only so-so, though lacing is moderate.

S: Aromas of biscuit, lemon, lime, bitter orange, grapefruit, juniper berry, herbs, pine, papaya, pineapple, and tangerine fill the nose.

T: Notes of crackers, caramel, biscuit, herbs, lemon, lime, kumquat, bitter orange, grapefruit, papaya, pineapple, cedar, juniper berry, and tangerine swirl across the palate. The finish is mostly bitter and resinous with just enough caramel sweetness from the malt to provide a semblance of balance.

M: Medium-bodied, firm, and oily. Carbonation is delicate. Alcohol presence is noticeable. This is definitely an ale to be sipped and savored.

O: For the most part, this is a really nice DIPA. I appreciate the fact that the malt is emphasized a bit more than usual and the bitterness is not so overwhelming. I can see this being a beer that would be appreciated by those who are trying to move away from the over-the-top bitterness of many contemporary American DIPAs.
