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.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip, best by 2015. Pours a reddish orange with a half inch of off white head, that leaves lace and lots of floaties. Smell is mango, tangerine, hard candy, and cut grass. Taste is really the same, very well balanced nothing seems to dominate, not sure how long they let this best by date go. Body is medium, plenty of carbonation, not dry, and easy drinking for its large ABV. This is good, wish I could have one fresher to see what the hops can be.

Pours a pretty copper with a thin head into my glass. More copper than I expected for the style. The bottle suggests making a "black and tan" with this and the Yin. I might just do that!

Lots of citrus, especially grapefruit from the hops. Otherwise, lots of alcohol and biscuity malt.

Boozy with a grapefruit kick. The malt underneath seems weak, barely registering on my scale.

Ditto for mouthfeel. Rather unflattering.

It seems to me like there are two different ways to do a DIPA: This way and the Heady Topper/Pliny/Double Sunshine way. This DIPA would lean more towards the English style of IPA than the American style. In a sense, it's accurate but not widely recognized by beer enthusiasts.

A: minimal head to speak of on a hazy amber with crimson hues body.

S: malty but very boozy with mild hops.

T: fairly malty with caramel and toasted malts. Hops are mostly candied fruits and sOme floral notes.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: malt forward IPA. fairly sweet. Not too memorable.

Cloudy dark amber, orange pour from bottle into sniffer glass. Big 3 finger head with alot of retention looks great.

Aroma a bit muted of hop profile, more fruit, bready and sweet.

Taste starts great with a huge malt profile, caramel and dried pineapple but there is not enough hop profile for a DIPA. It could have been a home run.

Mouth feel is excellent, smooth, creamy, rich clean finish.

Beer is overpriced. Better options for this style. the hop profile was non existent.
