Aroma is citrus, English malts and mild pine. The flavor is fruit, citrus, hops/hop resin, English malts and a mix of mild heat, spices and bittersweet in the finish.

Nice and potent imperial from Norway, bottle from Brewer’s Haven. Cloudy orange/amber in color with lasting creamy, but stiff, head. Hops in the aroma, but even more so in the taste. What a kick! Surprisingly smooth, but with a punch and touch of alcohol warmth.

50cl bottle. BB 2015.11.15 (bottled at 2013.11). Poured into tulip.
A: Hazy. Golden. Poured with great amount of foam, but it didn't retain.
S: grapefruit, somewhat caramel, and sweet notes.
T: medium- sweetness, medium bitterness, a little bit alcohol. I also got some tropical fruits: mainly pineapple. The finish is drying out, which is quite good.
M: Full bodied. Low carbonation.
O: Fairly good DIPA, somewhat too sweet for me though.

Poured from bottle into a chalice glass

Appearance –The beer pours a very hazy reddish orange color with a thick one finger head of white foam. The head, while thick, fades relatively rapidly, leaving just a trace of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a citrus hop smell with tons of a grapefruit as well as some aromas of an orange nature. Along with these smells comes some rather off aromas of a more vegetal and herbal smell which bring an overall odd and somewhat off putting aroma to the brew.

Taste – The taste begins just as the nose would have suggested with a decent showing of citrus sweet and hop. A good level of orange and tangerine are present up front with some more bready flavors, which create a rather nice base. A grapefruit hop mix with a little bit of an herbal hop taste are present upfront as well, with these flavors growing more potent as the taste advances. Unfortunately a more vegetal and herbal like off flavor also grow stronger at the same time, and with these flavors taking the taste profile to its end, leave on with a rather off and unappealing flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. The feel is really quite nice even with respects to the somewhat off flavors of the brew, creating a very enjoyable and mouth coating feel that somehow baths the tongue in the nice qualities of the brew while diminishing the rather less palatable (vegetal) flavors of the brew.

Overall – A decent double, but with the vegetal qualities of the brew, it is not worth going to on any real occasion. A tryer, but not a keeper or repeater.

I will not say this beer is terrible. I will not say this beer is terrible. I will not say this beer is terrible.

OK so this beer is terrible.

The appearance has more yeast than a Belgian Triple and does form some head before it dissipates. Not really what I expected and a bit flat looking but I do like yeast.

The first smells tells me something is off. Way out of balance in the hops and malt department. The malt is way too strong with caramel and earthy tones that remind me of the worst in these "double IPAs". Plenty of hop presence, they don't go unnoticed, but it's very much in what makes an IPA good let alone great smelling.

Opens with a good bit of sugary malt, definitely caramel and then fades into a nice citrus resin like hop flavor then it finishes with what I can only call vodka and aspartame. There is just no saving a beer that does that.

Maybe I'm just having a stomach issue, but this beer burns each time I take a drink. I'm not enjoying it, it's just not enjoyable. Add in I can taste every bit of 9% if not more....

If you like dogfish head 90 minutes AND you were thinking "maybe a poor hop profile and even more malt" is your dream beer. This is a really poorly executed example of that.
