Was handed this bottle off the recommendation of the distributor. Funky looking bottle with nothing but a pink and yellow pain splat on the front. Was very curious to give this a try but wasn't sure I was going to give it a fare shake having this right after a bottle of Enjoy By 11.13.13.

Appearance: Pores and extremely cloudy, hazy, orange/white color. Almost no transparency at all. I thought Heady was cloudy, but this beats that out by far.

Smell: Grapefruit, hops, pine, mainly the citrus and hops dominate the nose.

Taste: Hops/citrus attack strong with some pine and a very slight hint of the alcohol. Very flavorful blend for sure.

Mouthfeel: Creamy feel to it that coats the tongue nicely with the flavor of hops and citrus. It's definitely a palate wrecker for sure with the bitterness lingering much after as there isn't too much of a malty backbone to balance it out. It's all about the hops and nothing more.

Overall: a solid brew from this very random Swedish brewery. I would definitely have this again and I'm interested in testing out some of their other offerings.

Gold with a white head. Minimal lacing. The aroma is booze and hops with very little else present to me. It kinda tastes fruity and malty with a nice hop bitterness. This beer tastes better than it smells. Not a bad brew.

UGH what happened? Last year this beer was the best dipa that I'd ever tasted! It even beat out pliny! It seems as though this new 22 oz format has created but a shadow of this beer's former glory.

This, and I really hate to say this, tastes like *gasp* it could have been brewed by *second gasp* SIERRA NEVADA.

OH GOD. THE TORTURE. THE HUMILIATION.

WHAT WENT WRONG?!

It used to be more hazy, with more lemon pith, stronger hop juiciness with less bitterness, an aroma to die for, and no soapiness whatsoever which this has in DROVES!

OK, I might be a bit extreme in my criticisms. Its still a great dipa, its just well... a bit under world class. It looks like it might have been filtered more (less hazy) and tastes like the hops might have been dealt with less... delicately. In any case this is almost an insult to one of my favorite dipas. It still has that almost saison quality with the slight spiciness but everything is just a bit off. Less balance, less juicy, less full bodied and flavorful.

Sorry to say that I was disappointed, I'll throw this out and keep my 12 oz bottle from last year in my collection.

Do try this however, it really is great, just not.... AS great.

If you have yet to try heady topper, just get this instead. I'm sure the price/availability makes it harder to get better reviews but this is just a great beer.

If this were being packaged weekly and out to the masses.... Oh baby

Poured a cloudy golden yellow with a fingers worth of white head. The smell is sweet, a good amount of citrus, and some floral notes. The taste is extremely hoppy but not as bitter as you'd expect from the flavor. You get a lot of citrus and pine in the flavor with a good malt finish. The feel is a little thick which hides the carbonation. This is an excellent beer but very deceiving. From the smell and flavors you'd expect a different feel and bitterness but what they've done works well.

pours cloudy and not much head. almost unappetizing but boy is this DIPA fantastic. It starts with some citrus, then some sweetness, then finishes with a long lingering bitterness. It's perfect. At the price I paid for a 12 oz bottle I would expect a great beer. Good thing I had it before and knew what I was getting into.

Probably the best double IPA I have ever had. It smells of tropical fruits and pine, and the taste is in the same note. Extremely well balanced and drinkable, with less of the malty sweetness or thickness in body that DIPAs usually posess.

Teku glass. Bottle. Cloudy golden with two/three finger white head. Good lacing. Aroma is excellent - lots of citurs (lemon, orange and definetely grapefruit). The taste is not as intense as flavour, fruity palate with citrus (mainly grapefruit), peach, grapes. Also some bread, cake notes along with straw flavoursMedium bitterness balanced by malts (sweetness). Medium body, thick, dry, medium carbonation. Finish is bitter and long. Definetely one of the best DIPA I've ever tried. Very aromatic, drinkable and thick. But too pricey.

Poured into a snifter from a 12 ounce bottle.

A- Cloudy mango-colored liquid. Frothy pale white head. Great head retention and abundant lacing. Looks thick enough to be a smoothie. 4.25

S- Pineapple, passionfruit and a touch of tartness and dank. Light malt presence. 4.25

T- Man, so fruity. Mango and pineapple and passionfruit give way to more pineapple. The fruity qualities and sweet malt complement each other well. A more grapefruit like beer emerges too. Love the medley of flavors. 4.5

M- Drinks refreshingly with a lighter-feeling body that still isn't thin. Bitterness works throughout with touches of sweetness and zestiness. Great stuff. 4.5

This beer is great. It wasn't much on my radar but now I want more. A lot more.

Odd appearance like Tang. Very strong lemongrass smell. Very grassy taste, surprisingly sweet and almost no bite.
