Cloudy orange colour, small white head. Aroma - mainly dominated by malt sweetness, a little boozy, marmalade, Iím getting a raisin note? Touch of pine and some earthy woodiness. Taste - a little sweet, mostly orange from the amarillo, not getting much chinook in the spicy end of things. Soft bitterness, bordering on being a little too sweet. Itís ok but a little sickly.

Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate to full malty and caramel sweetish aroma with light bread, light fruitiness, light grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, caramel and light fruitiness, light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, caramel and faint fruitiness, some grapefruit hoppyness. Caramel sweetish DIPA - lacks the hoppyness.

Nice hoppy beer, malty and fruity. Yet, the TRIPA and the IPA from Emelisse are better. This one stands a bit in between.

Bottle from the brewery. Not sure if this is actually retired. Aroma is big noble hop with citrus with juicy fruit. Orange pour with a slight haze. thin white head. Flavour is resinour, assertive clean bitterness. Nice sticky, resinous palate. hop is a bit noble hop but ticks most of the DIPA boxes.

Solid sweet malty base with honey and toffee followed with harsh hoppy bitterness together with grapefruit, grapefruit zest, pines, yeast. Strong long hoppy bitter finish. Tasty.

Flaska från Der Beerkonig Amsterdam som sedan hälls jummen i ett tandborstglas av plast på Hotellet! Kanske inte perfekta förutsättningar men jag blev imponerad. Typ Ameikansk västkust, rikligt himlafärd härlig beska!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled from Biernavigatie.nl. Batch 03.14.B, so i guess itís this (already retired) version. Dark amber colored, small but lasting off-white head. Very complex hoppy nose, clearly American hops, fruity, pine, but also quite some caramel malts shining through, itís like walking though a brewery. Initially a bittersweet flavor, hops and caramel malts, low on carbonation, quite thick mouthfeel. Harsh bitter finish, pretty dry. The aroma is just amazing, but the flavor is leaning too much on the hop bitterness, although it does get better when adding the yeast. Iíll stick to their TIPA, which is both more intense and more balanced.
