3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled from Biernavigatie.nl. Batch 03.14.B, so i guess it’s 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, it’s 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. I’ll stick to their TIPA, which is both more intense and more balanced.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy amber with a large off-white head. Aroma is earthy and caramel. Full bodied, almost. Flavor is earthy, spicy, nearly grapefruit. With a firm malty backbone. There’s lots and lots of hop, but the hop burn is restrained. Finishes bitter with a mouthful of mixed hop. Delicious.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My first and certainly not last, beer brewed by Emelisse. For an DIPA I thought the aroma was a little subdued. After giving it some time in the glass it gives off a pleasant spicy, earthy aroma with lots of grape fruit.The aroma is really more balanced than subdued. There is also some bread, raisin, and earty notes coming through. The taste has a moderate bitteness to it, with a fruity aroma coming through. medium body,perhaps a bit salty.

Looks very nice in a hazy amber tone but the aroma is not my favourite. Lots of citrus but less hops. Still good. Some of these dutch breweries like Jopen, Emelisse and De Molen seem to be better at dark beers like imperial stouts.

Kraftig smak mycket bred i doft. Att på så få alkoholprocent få så mycket smak är imponerande.
