Meh. A very average IIPA. The only reason I agree with this beer being classified as an IIPA is the alcohol content. Aroma was slightly ginger, caramel malt and grass. Pour was a nice medium gold with a one finger white head. Taste was very thin and weak. It’s amazing how a beer with such a high ABV has such little flavor. To spin it in a positive direction, I’ll say this beer hides the alcohol well. Taste was thin, tinny and one dimensional. Earthy floral and spicy hops are there with a light maltiness. Medium carbonation.

[10/7/13] Draught at Delirium Hoppy Loft in Brussels. Clear deep golden. Aroma of piney hops, a bit stale. Flavor has some sweetish malt, a bit caramelly, and some stale piney hops with pretty light bitterness. Too sweet, not bitter enough and not fresh enough. Still OK.

slightly hazy light amber colour, moderate off-white head; aroma of pine resin, some citrussy notes and hints of honey; taste is fully dominated by hoppy bitterness and resin; not bad, but a bit one dimensional (similarly to the most of the single-hop IPAs)

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled side by side with the citra variety. Both had an identical dull golden pour with ring of near white head. Sweeter and more mellowed than the citra. More caramel/honey old hop sweetness also shows up. Centennial seems to be just the standard go-to hop of the west. I think I can now pick it out of a lineup. Still, pretty good DIPA in its own right.

Thx! To Antoine. Sampler draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Bright orange, little white head. Nose is very syrupy for an IPA, grapefruit, white grapes, sweet candy sugar, toffee, sweet spices,… Taste is sweet boozy syrup, candy sugar, light booze, bitter floral, caramel, sweet spices, very little grapefruit,.. Quite sticky, oily body. Enjoyable but not really what I nor most are probably seeking in an IPA.
