3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy pale orange pour with a white head. Aroma is a bit herbal with some tropical fruit. Flavour is herbal and grassy with some sweet tropical fruit. Decently balanced but an odd mixture of flavour.

Really great double ipa. Pours a light orange. Aromas of citrus rind and booze. Lots of God stuff going on in the mouth. Citrus, honey malts, booze. Really smooth. Great stuff.

Beautiful orange body, white lasting head, nice lacing. Citrus, dried fruit, molasses, caramel aroma. Taste is rich sweet malty, a touch of hoppy bitterness, juicy citrus fruit. Coating mouthfeel. Pretty great beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is orangey gold with a teeny tiny white cap. Nose is surprisingly faint. I tried a year-old bottle of this, and then shortly thereafter a month-old bottle, and while it’s definitely better fresh, it’s still lacking some hop punch. Still, I get piney/floral hops, light citrus and soap, caramel and earth and bread and honey. This is a really nice, full, chewy caramel malt, lightly spicy and boozy, but balanced/masked with a bracing bitter pine finish. I wouldn’t call it dry but I wouldn’t call it....wet, either (giggity). I was kind of disappointed because I had such ludicrously high hopes for this beer, but it’s still damn good. Man I like adjectives.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours goldenamber with almost no head. Far less aroma than a typical imperial IPA. Slight aroma of bubblegum and citrus. Tastes warm, oily, far less alcoholic than it’s 9% abv would suggest, or than most imperial IPAs have. Tastes more like a hoppy dubbel than an imp IPA. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Halles St-Jean. Aroma: grapefruit, orange, pines, caramel. App: hazy golden, nice lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, average carbonation, big long dry bitter finish. Overall: enjoyed it but a bit too big for my tastes, maybe not that well balanced since the alcohol makes it a bit too hard to swallow. But after a few sips we get used to it. Another great beer from DDC.

Arômes de pamplemousse, orange, malt caramélisé, poivre, lime et alcool. En bouche, goût de pamplemousse, caramel, alcool, poivre concassé, orange, résine de pin. Finale bien amère, un peu terreuse, pointe de zeste d’orange. Texture moyenne. L’amertume colle au palais. Double ipa bien goûteuse, maltée, bien houblonnée.
