nice looking brew. golden orange with a white head, nice lacing. on nose and palate are notes of sweet malt, intensely malty. some citrus and dankness coming through as well as piney and floral and some spice. overall a bit too malt forward for me but I can understand the appeal - its definitely well done!

This felt very much like an old school IPA. It's very far from where IPAs are currently trending, with all the juice and the haze etc. But it was still delicious, and I could appreciate that, like DFH 90 min, it was probably much higher rated back in the day.

On tap at Mikkeller & Friends in Copenhagen. This was on my list of DIPAs to try for a while and was not expecting to see it on tap in Copenhagen. This isn't really my style for a DIPA - it is malty, but not very bitter; still, it is a very well made beer.

Crowler from share on 11/12. Pours out a nice, rich golden color, with small, soft, fluffy head. Hops dominate the aroma, some nice citrus, fruity sweetness. Taste continues with more of the hop forward flavors, some juicy tropical fruits. Lingering bitter bite.

Probably the best IIPA I have had. Just need to get them to distribute 60 miles east of Oregon now.
