This one grew on me to a degree. At first I thought the palate was missing depth, but after a few more sips I realized it filled in the depth reasonably well. This isn’t a great beer, but it is good. Aroma is dank. Color is a golden copper. It tastes of juicy tropical and citrus fruit, with a nice orange and citrus rind hops bitterness and a decent malt sweetness in the backbone. Not bad, really.

Bottle at home from www.beer-shop.gr. Basically it’s Dark Horse’s Crooked Tree IPA using only Apollo hops. I bought it for sampling reasons in the first place, but it was a good choice after all. Small creamy off-white head, diminishing a bit after pouring into glass. Good lacing. Heavily particulate, cloudy body, dark amber to orange color. Average bread, cookie, caramel, toffee character. Dominant hop character, revealing herbal, flower, citrus peel, orange and lemon aromas. Hints of toffee, caramel and butterscotch taste. Light sweetness. Leaves a salty mineral finish, and dry/lasting hoppy aftertaste. I’m glad I gave it a shot.

Douberd (3056) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2015
(Dark Horse Ollopa Eert Dekoorc) Bottle 355 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 6.5% Dark golden orange colour on a clear body, tall and thick off-white head, with very good retention, leaving medium lacing behind. Grassy hops on the aroma, apples, bubblegum, weak aroma but smells nice. Taste is nothing extreme, drinks good though. More apples especially on the finish, maybe some pineapple. Pretty faint flavour all in all but there is something in there that makes you go back for another sip. Mildly bitter with good duration on the aftertaste. Medium body, carbonation towards the low side. Okay I’d say.

VeinAle (120) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Smells of floral hops, pine, slight alcohol, roasty and woody. Very mild flavor profile this can be expected of single hop spin-offs. The Sweet and bitter are both quite delicate and struggle to mask the abv. Appearance is opaque gold, great really glad that dark horse did the IPA sampler. Edit: please take the time to upturn your bottle and gently dislodge the yeast sediment that had accumulated on the bottom of the bottle, this really defines my experience.

Palais est malté avec un rappe de caramel sur un houblonné assez US. Entre fruité et fleuri.
