3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. Bottled date 1/30/12. Pours amber with almost no head. Smell. Definitely can smell the Amarillo coming through but not that intense, pry b/c of the aging. Cara malt is really coming through in both taste and smell. Medium thick mouthfeel with only slight burn and hop bitterness. Pretty smooth and concentrated taste. Overall nice Double IPA, and I'm happy to see this Dutch brewery showcasing this American Hop better than some US brewers.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl Bottled shared at home. Pours a dark orange with little head and low carbonation. Aroma is lovely, all citrus and caramel. Too much of this sweetness comes over in the taste though, and the finish is surprisingly thin.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33 cl, bottled on 5.3.2013. Pours hazy orange in color with a small creamy off-white head. Fruity citrus, some fresh cut grass and malty tones in aroma. Quite dry and bitter mouthfeel. A bit of berry sweetness in taste, some light grapefruit too and notes of the houseflavor as well. Has a slightly bitter aftertaste, but on the whole feels quite dry and keeps shifting between some bitter and some sweet berry notes in finish.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Intenso e limpido color arancio con un leggero velo di schiuma beige. Aroma con forti sentori di pesca e agrumi con una leggera parvenza di luppolo; gusto inizialmente dolce e fruttato che evolve verso un amaro mediamente intenso, secco e delicatamente luppolato. Corpo medio, effervescenza debole, discretamente strutturata. Buona IPA, fresca e particolare!

Pours amber, off-white head. Nose is tangerine, grass, some caramel sweetness. Flavour is the same, with pine. Finishes much drier than most IPAs, thatís what really stood out for me here.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Small bottle. Already 3 months old but the label claims it will be fit for "enjoying" within 2 years. Murky orange body with a small foamy head. Aroma has tangerines, fresh cucumber and cream. Thick and sticky mouthfeel. Taste starts fruity sweet and stays like that. Tangerines, hay, milk, weak and lagery Saaz hops. Not as bitter as an Imperial IPA needs to be. Flat again like the bottle of Hel & Verdoemenis I just had.
