COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: Brewed by Djævlebryg at Brøckhouse, Hillerød, Denmark.

Danish: I 2009 fejres Charles Darwins 200-års fødselsdag og 150-året for udgivelsen af "On the Origin of Species". Evolution er i dag en af de vigtigste og bedst underbyggede videnskabelige teorier. Til ære for Darwin har vi udviklet OriginAle: En muteret double IPA med 3 engelske humler selekteret for at hylde hans afstamning. OriginAle er bedst egnet til nydelse.

_angst_ (2609) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2012
Draught @ Bishops Arms Örebro. Pours hazy golden with a very small white head that quickly dissipates without leaving any trace on the glass. Smell is very sweet and malty with caramel, honey, sweet dark bread, golden syrup and hints of grass and orange zest. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter with caramel, honey, orange peal, grass, pine, sweet bread, overripe plums, mango and pineapple and hints of metal. Mouthfeel is round, sticky sweet and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with bread, honey, grass and orange peal. I remember pouring this down the drain the first time I tried it about a year ago. Found it incredibly sweet and not at all good. This time I wanted to give the beer another chance and was more prepared for the sweetness. It’s still not my kind of IIPA but it’s still a pretty good beer.

Boutip (4654) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2012
Bottle: Poured a deep golden/beige color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of bitter and pine hops is pleasant. Taste is a mix between hoppy notes with resin flavour and some dry caramel malt with a bit too much residual sugar for the style. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad overall but lacking some floral hoppy notes and somewhat too sweet for the style.

Amberish colour with big head. Aroima is british hops. Flavour is also not that hoppy. Decent IPA.

This is my favorite beer of all times. I’ve been drinking hundreds of bottles of this one in the past couple of years. :) Brownish-amber color, medium head, very hoppy and malty. The fruity bitterness and very long bitter aftertaste is really good. Full body and thick with a very long finish.

probstblueribbon (2871) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2012
50 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. BB 29.05.12.

App.: Clear deep golden with a decent yellowish-white foam. Aroma: Quite a lot of cereals and grains, cloying sweetness, quite fruity, oddly perfumed, maybe a little floral, sorta woodsy, I don’t really have a good lexicon for British hops and malts. Palate: Medium+ body, slick/syrupy, restrained effervescence. Flav.: Booze, lots of booze, cereals/grains, oddly sweet and perfumed, kinda like a malt liquor with a lot of British hops (to me), woodsy, thick, slightly cloying, really different; slightly hot alcohol, sweet and quite bitter, with a long, lingering, syrupy hop/malt finish.

If given the opportunity again, I would not naturally select this.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Rich barley sugar grounds citrusy hops and their bitter resins for a frothy, raw, Barley Wine-like strong ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-There is ample foam atop the hazy orange, producing plenty of lacing.
-Cereals are lightly caramelized.
-The frothy natural carbonation sculpts a great mouthfeel for a sipper.
-If you want a super hoppy Double IPA, this one’s going to be disappointing.
-The flavors are extremely well defined, but the total package is still quite enjoyable.
