3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 03/17
Pours a big rocky white head holding strong on a hazy copper body.
Punchy hop nose - cooked citrus, glace orange, leafy resin, green melon/mango sort of thing happening with a caramel malt presence.
Full body, oily texture, creamy sort of carbonation.
Packs plenty of character - leafy, woody, citrus hops, unripe tropicals, resiny, lingering with a big wallop of bitterness lingering on the finish.
Hefty double IPA, plenty of bitterness!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Jan, thanks. Lightly lacing, snow white, medium thick, stable head over a hazy orange blonde beer. Aroma of toasted onion or even garlic, grapefruit peel, old cheese, dried mango, paprika-flavored potato chips, orange, gin, toasted bread. Clean fruity onset with hints of green banana and passion fruit, medium carbo, smooth but ’full’, bit oily mouthfeel, pleasantly biscuity and lightly caramelly malt core, long resinous and aromatic hop finish, bittering in a gentle but effective way, piney and toasted sweet onion-like, grapefruity as well, paired with a hint of warming, gin-like alcohol. Excellent Dutch craft beer and excellent example of this style, even from this somewhat older bottle.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden side of amber, decent foam. Aroma has some hop character but its mainly just sweet. Malt sweetness with a touch of herbal hops. Taste has these two sensations even more pronounced. Really sweet, even sickly sweet body, herbal bitterness wrapping up everything you can find here. Decent DIPA, not amazing but well, if it wasn’t that sweet I would probably drink this again.
