3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle
I might have enjoyed this more if half of it did not gush down the drain. What was left was a solid imperial IPA. With another bottle to try hopefully this time I can get a full experience.
Aroma / Appearance - The gushing does not stop even after you pour it into a glass. It takes a few minutes to settle down into something resembling beer. When it does what is left looks like melted Twix filling. Brown sugar, molasses, and caramel are helped by a light lemony texture. Underneath is a yeasty hazel feel.
Flavor / Palate - Melted Twix left on the dashboard during a warm summer day mix with caramel and floral hops. This is bitter but not over the top. The tangy mouthfeel hints of mango yet never quite gets there. Instead I find myself thinking of a malt driven imperial IPA with a little Belgian character. It’s not bad so much as a different take on the style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a lovely hazy darker golden beer, almost orange, with a nice, big white head on top. Aroma of perfume, grapes and light fruity hops. Flavour is very bitter, full of big grapefruit tones and earthy hops. Some very little alcohol sweetness is detected, but only in the very last bits of the flavour. Long, bitter and dry finish, light creamy mouthfeel. Full bodied, awesome beer!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a foamy head, a bit cloudy amber-orange colour, below average carbonation. Nose with sweet and citrus fruits and hop. Taste also has sweetness and fruits to it with big bitterness coming from the hops. Leaves a dry mouth feel. Too bitter and dry for my taste, but a nice DIPA.
**Lots of little particles in the beer and we didn’t pour the whole 66cl bottle...

Words cant describe how i felt when drinking this. The aroma’s, the colour, the taste.. A perfect balance between IPA and malts, brings this drink to another level of beerbrewing. I recently discovered DochtervdKrnr and i’m really impressed with their exquisit brews. Ace, ace, ace!
