COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg & bottled, special
A full-bodied, full-on Double IPA combining caramel and malt flavours with a well-balanced and substantial bitterness, which is topped off by a tantalising hop aroma with notes of tangerine and grapefruit. Light carbonation allows the full flavour of this beer to shine through.

pivnizub (9400) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle: Deep golden, a bit unclear, big and slowly collapsing beige head; herbal-hoppy and caramelly-malty nose; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied, quite soft; lingering sweet-bitter - aka cough-syrupy and herbal-hoppy finish. O.K., surely no first-class brew...

Clear red golden beer. Smell of orange, caramel and resiny hop. Taste is rich, orange peel, syrupy, astringent. Very solid sample.

Procent (330) - POLAND - JUL 1, 2015
W aromacie karmel, owoce kandyzowane oraz lekkie cytrusy. Zdecydowanie w kierunku angielskiego IPA, ew. lekkie barley wine. Jest słodka mailna a także zauważalny, landrynkowo-maślany diacetyl. Barwa złota, piwo klarowne, ładna, dość obfita i kremowa u szczytu, piana. W smaku także zdecydowanie słodkie owoce - malina dominuje, do tego rodzynki i karmel. Jest chmielowa kontra, ale raczej niewielka. Goryczka raczej niska, co najwyżej średnia. Piwo jest słodkie, ulepkowate. Nie ejst to złe, bo smaczne, kompozycja udana, tylko zdecydowanie za słodkie na DIPa i smak znw kieruje w stronę BW. Dobre, ale brak tu balansu, jest za słodkie.

Cunningham (5724) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2015
Clear deep golden color with a fine thick white head. Malty, fruity and mild hoppy aroma. Medium + body and an average carbonation. Tad sweet and an unusual moderate bitterness for an double ipa. Caramel malt driven flavor with some fruity and hoppy notes. More like an strong English special bitter.
[Bottle at Caf Dublin in Trondheim, Norway]
