Pours a very dark amber with thick creamy head. Aroma strong of malt, rye malt, slight citrus hops, and dried fruits. Flavor is not what I expected, but not in a bad way. It is strong malt and rye with surprisingly low hops flavor or kick, but it is there. Strong hints of chocolate, caramel, and bread. Light hints of citrus, spice, and wood. Finishes silky to almost slick in mouthfeel. Aftertaste is odd, but pleasant. I know why they call it a DIPA, but I think it would be better categorized as American Strong.

Pours amber-red with a medium off white head. Aroma is sweet malts & faint rye. Taste is a beautiful combination of hops and rye up front and in the mid. The bitterness from the hops takes over in the long finish. This one just simply tastes good.

Pours a nice brown with tan head. Aroma of spice and dough. Flavor matches with more rye in the flavor than in the aroma.

Deep copper/amber color with light tan head. Aroma hit me the instant the top was popped. Intense floral hop aroma. Smooth malty flavor. Good...a keeper.

On tap at Lord Hobo. Amber pour with an off white head. Piney hop bouquet. The taste follows suit. Good balance with a sturdy malt backbone. Good body and mouthfeel.

Vaiz (3372) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine, Summerlin. Clear amber pour, thin off-white head. Aroma of fruity hops, caramel malts, rye, quite floral, slightly sweaty and some pine. Flavor is quite bitter, floral and well balanced with a very full body. Very nice brew.

Poured from 45d bottle into Dogfish IPA glass. Translucent mahogany amber color with a foamy off-white head that hung around. Spicy malt aromas blend with citrusy and piney hops; I get a bit of apple note mixing with the sweet caramel resin. Medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation goes down easy and smooth. The bitterness lingers but in a pleasant way. Drank this one day after Green Flash's Road Warrior. Both are pretty stellar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fruity, flowery aroma. Pours a reddish brown with off-white head. Medium body with plenty of hops and malt character. Noticeable spicy contribution by the rye. Overall, a very enjoyable brew.
