Mild bitterer, deutlich erdiger Antrunk. Vollmundig hopfig-malzig, süffig. Der Hopfen wird intensiv, rund, gut! 11/12/11/11//11

MSBrindbergs (642) - Solna, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2015
Flaska från De Bierkoning i Amsterdam. Grumlig rödbrun vätska med lättare ljusbrunt skum. Doftar karamell, citrus och disktrasa. Smakar detsamma. Sur i eftersmaken. Inte så rolig, men jävligt cool etikett! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Benzai (11312) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2015
Draught @ Hoppy Days. Hazy dark orange color, medium sized off-white to beige head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, light to moderately resinous hops, moderately bitter. Medium body and soft yet suitable carbonation.

Theydon_Bois (14285) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2015
Keg at CBC Clerko, 14/07/15. Amber with a moderately appointed off white covering. Nose is caramel malt, light spice, earthy citrics, peppery notes. Taste comprises bitter orange, caramel malt, bread dough, straw. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with earthy hop bitterness. Adequate DIPA, hops don’t shine enough for me.

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAY 19, 2015
300 ml on tap at Spring Beer Festival. Dark amber, slightly hazy, with a tiny, bubbly off white head. On the nose toffee, candied orange peel, herbal and almost balsamic notes, just a little hint of alchool. Lovely fruity bitterness upfront, juicy and slightly sirupy without feeling clyoing or too chunky, subtle toasted and nutty backbone, typical sticky caramel presence. Very mild boozy astringency in the aftertaste. To me, this is a textbook DIPA, just how I like them! Great.

goozen (3555) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2015
Tap at Hoppy Days, Amsterdam: Clear golden colored brew with i think there is some faintly purple hue. Well balanced sweet bitter taste, with hints of citrus, caramel and honey.

teorn88 (4686) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2014
Backlog rating. Keg at FOB, Rimini. It pours a hazy orange color with a medium beige head. Aroma is hopy with ripe peaches, hay, grass, grapefruit peel. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter with notes of mango, grapefruit skin, hay, grass and citrus. Finishes dry and bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Quite good

JulienHuxley (4633) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
On tap at Hoppy Days. Hazy gold pour with cask head. Aroma of dank and fruity hop, light piney notes, resinous. Taste is nice and hoppy, not too bitter or malty (a surprise, after one of their maltier IPA offerings) but just a tad boozy. Palate is med bodied with light carbonation. Good.
