2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a very fresh bottle. Pours amber colour with little head. Aroma is not that hoppy, i get some hops and pineapple. Taste is bittering from the hops, and finishes with some sweet, malty aftertaste. Medium body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle, served in Shaker. Dark orange colour with a big off-white head. The aroma is caramelish, flowery and yeasty...soft. Lots of toasty notes and earthy hops when tasting. Looks like burned caramel. Strong lingering bitterness, not for beginners. Medium body, good carbonation. One does not expect this to be that strong considering the smell. Not bad, although it’s far from being a top beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle, at home. Poured into a tulip glass. Lots of sediment visible on the bottom of the glass. ABV 7.9%
Pours a deep orange colour, slighty hazy although I was carefoul not to pour any of the sediment in. Two fingers of white, thick head, with average retention and light lacing left on the glass.
Very nice aroma, lots of citrus and mango aromas on the side, at least at first, after a swirl of the glass, more of pine aromas are coming forward.
Taste is moderately bitter, I expected it more bitter up front. Pine, citrus, a little bit of caramel, quite hoppy. Aftertaste more bitter, but still nothing extreme.
Medium thin body, light carbonation but on the good side. Light dry on the palate.
Overall good IPA, easily drinkable besides the almost 8% ABV.

Pours a beautiful golden orange beer with a good white head. Smells also really good. Fruity. I guess strawberry, grapefruit and cherry. The taste is nice. Medium bitter. The palate is good. Nice medium body and a good carbo.

Bottle from De Molen online shop. Nice bold orange body with medium head. Nose is citrus, oranges, spices and hops. Taste is similar with citrus and hops up early and then warming into a spicy finish. Quite nice.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Batch 14B. Flaska från beernavigator. Bärnstensfärgad, lågt skum. Söt fruktig doft av kolaremmar och mogen ananas och mango. Smaken är söt och liknar doften, lite kolsyra och lite platt i munnen. Rejäl beska som känns lite sträv och oren, torrare avslutning. Helt okej DIPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. The colour is golden light amber and is pretty clear with a light beige medium head. Aroma of pine, grassy hops, some chocolate, caramel, oak and pale and sweet malt. Balanced flavour of grapefruit, pine and fades out with powerful grassy and herbal hops. Has a rich and slick mouth feel, and a lingering medium bitterness. Well-balanced and hoppy.

Tap at blue monk. Golden orange pour , small head. Orange marmalade aroma, touch of peanut shells. Citrusy orange flavor, weedy bitterness, big bitterness, tongue numbing. Active on the palate. Nice beer

33cl. Subdued EU/NL take on the DIPA style, defined by chewy caramel biscuit malts, rather subdued peachy hops for the style and some booziness. OK but a 15cl sample would have sufficed.

Wonderful. Some many little bitty flavors, yet never conplicated. Spicy, pepper (white), citrus, mold. Amazing.
