Znakomite piwo, po prostu nie ma sie czego przyczepic. Piana spora gesta i kremowa, przy tym trwala. Kolor ciemno pomaranczowy, bardzo metny. Smkak wytrawny kwiatowy i grejfrutowy, zwlaszcza aromat. Tu chmiele przerozne graja pierwsze skrzypce. Wytrawnosc i goryczkowosc na niesamowicie wysokim poziomie. Ogromnie polecam fanom gozkich piw.

1 week old. Sampled draft @ ZBF 2013. A murky, hazy orange with a wonderfully, very creamy white head. Nose is huge creamy caramel combined with lots of USA, grapefruit hops, thick pine, hints exotic fruits, creamy toffee, sweet & bitter balance and counteract one and another. Taste starts of with IIPA caramel, toffee, touch exotic fruits sweetness, malt base leading very quickly into very bitter grapefruit, light floral touches, leading into almost grass, strong pine resin, light exotic fruits. Very creamy body. Wonderful, makes me think a bit of Belle-Fleur on steroids.

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!

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 !!

shared @ DE-CH-F TriStateTasting, with special thanks to bartlebier! nose: wonderfully balanced hop notes, quite complex with aromas of resin, dried fruit, oranges; fruity taste, well rounded by a dry and bitter finish - a great DIPA!

Trouvée parmi ses petites soeurs dans un magasin à Bastogne, elle a été goûtée hier, et terriblement appréciée. Attention, les saveurs de houblon dominent la palette gustative, et ce genre de produit ne doit pas être gaspillé avec des personnes qui n’ont jamais été en contact avec des vrais houblons. Mais pour les autres, quelle palette, quel équilibre de saveurs... Dominé par ce houblon, bien sûr, mais quelle richesse !!

Gerbeer (1668) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
Tap. Pours a yellow/brown with full head. A hop bomb. Big aromas of grapefruit and pine. Flavors of fruity grapefruit, pine, toasty malts and light sugar. Beautiful balance for such a bomb. Excellent.

660 ml bottle at home - Pours clear dark orange with one of the creamiest heads I have ever seen, sticks like a mofo to the glass, beautiful. Aroma is is an explosion of citrus and exotic fruits; I get tangerine peel up front, peach and pineapple and soft malty and caramel notes in the back. Huge body with a incredible bitter mouthfeel, especially towards the end (before that, it is well balanced with the sweetness). Dry finish, a bit smoky. Taste of grapefruit peel, dark bitter chocolate, coffee beans (as if you eat them). Yeah folks, this is a beast, and I put right next to the Pliny The Elder. Well done!

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2013
Slightly hazy orange golden colour, firm off-white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, grapefruit, pineapple, hay, tropical fruit, pine. Hops, quite a bit of them. Bitter flavour, light sweet, alcoholic touch. Lots of aromatic hops. Creamy body, finish bitter hops, tropical fruits, resin and pine.
Great IPA. Fierce, but still balanced. I could drink this all day.
(Draught @ ZBF, Leuven 2013)

Update 12 May 2013
Compared in a tasting of three fresh double IPAs, head to head with a fresh Pliny the Elder and Borg Úlfur Úlfur, all bottled in April 2013. The Extase was the most dry one, with perhaps the best flavour profile. I was surprised there was no clear winner, I was maybe expecting the Pliny blowing the others away, but the other two stood their ground and shone brilliantly. Great beers, nice tasting!

22 oz bomber @ home, on International IPA Day. Hazy orange color. Dense, rocky, off white head with some retention. Aroma’s: flowery hops, some resin/pine & citrus, some malty sweetness. More citrussy retronasal. Flavor is bitter, with malty sweetness for balance. Medium to full bodied. Long, herbal & bitter finish. Really excellent!
