A clear, deep honey amber body supports a 1.5" off-white, pillowy smooth head creating dense, webbed lacing all around

Grassy tropical fruit spiked with lemon forward citrus juice and zest, folding into a layer of sweet, caramelly malt on a smooth medium body followed by lasting, bold, drying citrus residuals with a glow of tropical fruit, melon, and pine, malt sweetness building with higher temps

12oz code: CANNED ON IPA/484/8/21/14:) served at 45° into Spiegelau IPA glass

Douberd (2288) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2014
(Caldera IPA) Can 355ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.1% Deep orange colour on the body, two finhers of thick, off-white head on top, with great retention, leaving ,edium lacing on the glass. Aroma of light citrus, mandarin, biscuit, grapefruit, grassy hops. Taste follows, citrus and grapefruit at first with mandarins and orange peels following, quite bitter from the first sip, with the bitterness building up on its way to the aftertaste where it lingers for quite long. Medium body with good lively carbonation, quite dry on the palate. Very good IPA.

Tollas (3) - Genk, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014 does not count
Arome has a nice citrus and grapefruit flavour. There’s a nice fluffy foam, which stays on long. Taste is heavy bitter, sour and with citrus. The aftertaste is really too bitter for me.

Lots of citrus. Just tons of grapefruit. And pine. It’s the pine tree grapefruit forest here. Taste is bitter and very very delicious. More of that heavy pine and grapefruit. Awesome beer. Bummed I had to go two hours to get this, I’d like it in my normal IPA rotation. Definitely recommend.
