3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle 50 cl. Average creamy beige head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Light cloudy amber color. Aroma of nice smooth peach, pineapple, grapefruit, mild caramel and toasted malt. Very drinkable for a DIPA. Over the palate came also fruity notes, light citrus and mild wood like feel. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation and light dry texture. Moderated sweet and bitter flavor that is well balanced. Fruity, caramel and sweet peach/floral dry finish. Nice one, but not very DIPA like.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - Thanks, Eric! Deep dark amber color with a hazy body, huge fluffy head. Big caramelly, malty middle that fills the mouth, but it gets quickly overpowered by a huge broad hop wallop. Bam! -- this hits you in the face with hops. Somewhat rough and even gritty mouth feel. The high alcohol intensifies all the flavors (and it warms the throat going down, too). There’s no hiding from this beer. For a hophead like me, this stuff is gold particularly in N. Europe. You’d think you were in Oregon or something. Wish I could get it more often.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2010 Haze golden/amber body, with a very creamy middlesized white head. Carbonation is average. Aromas is surprisingly weak, notes are, barley, and pine.Taste is sweet with notes of pine, tannic acid, spicy hops, caramel and peach.
The ’Devil brewers’ choice of making an Double IPA, with only english hops, makes it very round and soft. This one could easily go as a normal IPA.
The 8,5% are well hidden. Finish is long, dry and warming.
OriginAle is a very good experience if you can live with the
absence of american hops, and its sharp taste of citrus and pine.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. High and long lasting creamy off-white head. Hazy orange body. Distinct barley malt aromawith nutty notes. Relatively mild and sweet barley malt flavor with just a bit of hops bitterness bite in the tongue as well as indication of oranges and lemon. Low carbonation and a short aftertaste. Would not have guessed on such a high alcohol percantage. Would have preferred more bitterness.
