Gedronken vanuit een 66cl fles. Een oranje kleur, met een lekkere geur. De smaak is weer geweldig, nier te overheersend

0.65l bottle from Martinus in the the Euro Swap II. Thanks man! A really good looking light cloudy kinda golden orange looking one in the glass this and it has a big fluffy beige head with great retention on top. The nose has first tones of both baking yeast, citrus zest, sweet orange marmalade, some wood traces, a little bit of both wet grass and pine hops. It’s definitely not to Americanized and punching your in the hoppy face, it’s more subtle - like it has been living in the forest a quiet and subtle life before it ended up here in my Tørst glass. It has lots of flavor. It’s super fruity with lots of watermelon sweetness and honey. Yeah, lots of honey, but it’s somewhat balanced by a strong and alcohol prickling bitterness. It has an extremely gliding oily feelings in the mouth and the carbonation is just below average. It’s also really grassy bitter this. Could one call this am English style double IPA? It’s definitely really tasty! The whole experience ends with a light flourish and yeasty finish with prickling kinda strong and definitely present alcohol tickling the back of my throat in the aftertaste. Thanks Martinus! 08.10.2013

An orange beer with a hansom, dense, blond and big head. The nose is fruitfull, tropical mangos and sweet citrusfruits. Nice aroma is mix of fruits of fermenting and tropical hops. Taste is tropical fruity, also some other fruits, lots of pine needles and citrusfruits, some herbs. The bitterness is strong and that is nicely balanced with sweetness of body, the overall impression is still nicely dry. Medium+ bodied, fresh and easy to drink that is quite rare to DIPA. Now I can say that Extase is enjoyable DIPA, strongly bitter and easy to drink, tropical fruity and piney.

SimonBeer (92) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2014
(Drinking date: 21 March 2014) Hazy, golden/orange-coloured beer with a layer of white, creamy foam which stays on the beer. The beer looks really delicious. Nice aroma of citrus, pineapple, malts. However, I expected a much more intense aroma. The taste is really bitter, for me a bit too bitter. It starts slightly sweet, but then the bitterness comes in. Hoppy and malty taste. Due to the high bitterness, all the other flavours fade away. Long-lasting medicinal-bitter aftertaste (not nice!!). A little bit less than medium carbonation, and a slightly thicker mouthfeel, good mouthfeel. I think this is a good beer, but it is too bitter. I?ve had (much) better double ipa?s. That?s why I give it the total score of 3.5

aleigator (170) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle from De Hopduvel. Hazy orange color with a decent head, which leaves a long staying lacing. Intense Aromas of yeast, lemon, orange and soap, which results in an unusual but pleasant melange. Hop is foremost defined by orange, grass and limes. This ale is definitely on the hoppy side, fantastic bitterness resulting from the floral start, long lasting on the palate. Has a dry, chewy mouthfeel. Warm, yeast orientated beginning, soon gets overpowered by hop freshness, without being too aggressive. Malt stays in the background the whole time, adding a sweeter note the the body, without being distractive from the hops, which are huge in this. The beer gets actually quite bitter in the end, still leaving some space for limes on the tastebuds. Also wheat remains on the palate, which creates, in combination with the hops, a unique popcorn-like flavor. Very recommendable ale, in which the best of both sides blend well together (Belgium - yeast, wheat; USA - aroma hops, fruity bitterness).

Vaiz (3255) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle at home. Deep orange pour, solid white head. Aroma of floral hops, some rye, fruity with mango, peach, and somewhat sweaty hops. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity hops, slightly warming, thick body and a bit sharp. Very decent IPA.

corkyrory66 (511) - BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2014
Double IPA de 8,5 % abv, avec du malt d’orge et de froment. Coleur ambre moyen. Apparence d’un tout léger voile. Bulles faibles mais partout. Mousse blanche souple, crémeuse qui vient napper. Arômes d’agrumes, citron vert, fleur de rose, menthe, anis étoilé. 1ère bouche soyeuse sur le houblon fleuri, la fleur de rose, une pointe de cerise du Nord. L’amertume est fine. Arrière-bouche plus complète avec malt, épices, herbes. 2ème sur des fleurs blanches des haies vives, rose, houblon. 3ème avec de l’ampleur, de la force, des nuances plus vastes. Arrière-bouche longue, fine. La longueur offre des fruits blancs confits, des agrumes, mais l’amertume est un peu pinçante. La levure est fine, fleurie, tout à fait ad hoc. L’alcool est bien progressif, très bien. La finale montre une amertume un peu trop forte, et ne convainc pas totalement. CONCLUSION : une belle bière avec de très belles nuances, mais où l’amertume finale n’est pas à la hauteur de l’attente. Elle a déjà flanché sur la longuuer, et confirme en finale … Dommage !!
