COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Clear deep amber colour lasting beige head. Resiny hoppy aroma. Some toffee, some resiny hop, some bitterness. Quite a good hit of alcohol. Yes it is quite sweet. I do like the hops too. Nice enough if a little too sweet.

olsvammel (5976) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2015
Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2015. Light hoppy smell with some grape. Light hoppy taste with some pale bread. Light-medium bitterness. A light DIPA, actually it would be light even for an IPA. Drinkable though.

(bottle) very hazy golden-amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of heavy fudge and cherry gâteau, with lots of dark chocolate, some hints of earth and nettles. flavour is mostly the same, rather sweet, with big notes of caramel, chocolate marble cake and vanilla, with a touch of canned tangerines and a light-bitter herbal-hoppy finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

Hazy gold - amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Minerals. Airy malts bring caramel and cream, mild to medium sweet. Hops are mild pine into ripe orange and a little marmalade. Citric peel bitterness and a touch of tropical fruits at the end. Light finish. Hangs together well, nicely balanced and pretty drinkable. A most pleasant surprise!
