3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from De Bierkoning: Pours a slightly hazy dark copper amber with a small froth of cream-colored head. Aroma of resiny grapefruity hops and some lightly sweet toasty caramel maltiness. Body starts with a rich caramel malty fullness and a good balance of juicy citrusy hops before a crisp bittersweet, slightly warming finish. An enjoyable double IPA that has good hop flavor, but could use a fresher hop nose.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very dark beer which looks more like porter (or even stout) than IPA.
Nice hops smell, and even more hops flavour in the mouth. Very well balanced bitterness, maltiness and alcohol. Long bitter and hoppy afertaste.
I love that hops flavour and the balance - definitely, one of my favourite beers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Red wax capped 33cl bottle filled May 8, 2009 and consumed 4 months later. Bottle #98 of 1248. Pours a hazy, dark, reddish-sienna color. A thick and lasting head of clingy tan foam drapes ultra-sticky splatters of lacing that coat most of the glass. The aroma is massively resinous and very piny, with a green "wet" hop feel, grass, and grapefruit notes. The underlying malt base is of toasted toffee, dessert bread, and faint dark fruits. Flavors show the same, with piny, grassy, resinous hops lending substantial bitterness, coming together beautifully with the burnt toffee sweetness. It’s quite tasty. Big and rich on the palate, there’s a certain yeasty dryness up front that transitions to a semi-sticky, ultra-hoppy finish. Damn good imperial red. Sort of a slow sipper, but tasty all the way.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Unclear brown body with a small off white head. Hoppy aroma with lots of caramel, malt and light chocolate notes. Flavour is hops, lots of barley, chocolate and some fruit. Very well balanced. More like a barley wine that a DIPA. Very powerfull taste. Its almost flat carbonated which is pretty sad.
