MXD (304) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle from l’Autre Oeil. Pours amber, somewhat hazy. Weird pour -- it was supposed to form basically no head, but it wasn’t the case, and I ended up with a think creme head. Carbonation seemed weird as well -- really tiny, sticking to the side of the glass. Anyways... Aroma is completely off for the style : while there was some caramel coming from the malts, the dominant aroma was really in the peaches/aroma territory, with no citrus at all and some hints of resin and tea. Closer to Lambic’s territory -- it WAS good, just completely off. Taste is much more in the DIPA territory -- subdued caramel and non-metallic honey notes with the hops taking a good part of the taste. Finale is dry, but without being abrupt, and quite long. Really long. A bit lacking in hop kick, but a pretty serviceable DIPA.

Drank with Marijn at home before heading to Dave’s birthday party 20-5-16. Typical caramel & hop-bitter double IPA taste. Fine soft body. Good beer, very likeable.

Marduk (6436) - Reval, ESTONIA - AUG 20, 2015
330ml bottle. Slightly hazy amber color. Medium size, white head, stays. Pine, dusty, yeasty, sweet notes in aroma. Pine needles, fruity, hops in taste. Harsh bitterness in aftertaste. Yeah alcohol is hidden, but it doesn’t help much. Dull brew.

330ml bottle (Uba ja Humal, Haapsalu)
Initially a lovely fresh hoppy citrussy aroma, but later sniffs are way sweeter and mashier. Taste is harsh dirty resiny and earthy bitterness. Palate full and sweet, almost sticky, but decent carbonation. Want to scrape my tongue afterwards. Looks decent, hazy orange, and a sticky off-white head.

SyncP (42) - - JUL 6, 2015
Hazey amber colour. Very small white head. Pine on the aroma. Oranges. Mango. Taste: not as fruity as the aroma. A bit one dimentional actually. Even picking up some alcohol (?!) Had this one like 4 times before this rating but it still doesn’t convince me. Meh-meh. There are so much DIPA’s out there that are way better.
