Golden amber pour with a white head. Smells like grapefruit and mango. Tons of layered citrus flavor, predominately grapefruit, but not overwhelming. Followed by a light malt body to smooth out the bitterness at the end. Malt hangs on after the bitterness fades. Very well rounded beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, BB 18.04.14, large sample. Clear orange golden color, short lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of lots of caramelly malts, hint of raisin, cookie and biscuit, citrussy fruit, Citra gets almost buttery. Flavor starts with lots of fruity bitterness, but also full bodied like in a smoothie. Plenty of biscuity sweetness as well. In the end the alcohol kicks in and it leaves quite a burn in the throat. The imperial IPA features have retained pretty well, although the fresh hop notes are probably mostly gone. Body seems big enough to cope with the alcohol, but still it comes through quite massively, which is a small downside.

Helder oranje amberkleurige bier met kleine witte kraag. Volle moutige en krachtige IPA. De citra hops doen hun werk goed. Zowel in de geur als in de smaak veel citrusvruchten. Combineert prima met de volle moutige achtergrond. In de neus verder wat rogge en in de smaak een beetje chocolade. Heerlijk.

Bottle. Hazy golden color with a medium thick foamy white head. Strong aroma of citrus, peach and grapefruit. Sugary and bitter taste of pine and caramel. Sticky feel. The alcohol is well hidden behind the bitter finish.
