Douberd (3013) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2013
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.

Abijen (1650) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2013
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.

altonbrownd (3712) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2013
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.

Vignale (2384) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2013
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.

Foffern (1385) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 22, 2013
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.

swoopjones (6709) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 20, 2013
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

bartlebier (2426) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 15, 2013
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.

Eccezionale duoble ipa con un gusto amaro intenso e persistente, dato dal luppolo galaxy.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle, 33 cl. hazy orange with a small, descending, bubbly off-white head. Aroma of berries, white pepper, herbal hops, ryebread), wood and some fragant wheaty notes. Medium to full body, medium carbonation, dry and sugary coated mouthfeel. Flavor has a minty note, is rather vinious with notes of dried fruits aka apricots. Lingering, herbal and resinous bitter finish. By far the best Emelisse, I’ve had so far.
