Great Belgian Double IPA, though not as hop-forward as would be expected by the name. Very well balanced, dry finish, spicy, and all around delicious, but I wouldnít call it a Double IPA. Only light aroma, and itís mostly spice and Belgian phenolics. Very little evidence of hops, but again, itís a perfectly balanced beer.

London 2014 - September 6th, with harrisoni & Theydon_Bois - 330ml bottle c/o harrisoni and PhilL. Sorry, garbled voice notes here - seems it was mostly clear gold, average off-white diminishing head; aroma and taste - alcohol, overly sweet fruity malt, some grassy bitterness, but an odd vegetal thing working too - a little jangly overall. Reasonably thick, almost syrupy mouthfeel, average bottle carb, medium-quick boozy generically bitter finish - like an oddly fruity malt likka.

Bammers54 (76) - Camberely, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle, nice beer, but isnít what Iíd call an IPA, the Belgium yeast flavour is to strong and hides what hoppy dryness there might be lurking behind the scenes. That said a very good beer

nuplastikk (4876) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2015
11.2oz shorty grenade bottle. Yeasty thick orange body. Creamy. respectably steady white head. Kind of a noble hop aroma, but a real underlying citrus depth in the hop character. The lack of filtration lends a creamy mouthfeel which really benefits this style. Maybe the most enjoyable Belgian IPA Iíve had in some time, Iíd go back for more of this. No hairspray, drinkable.

Leighton (13032) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle at home in London - sourced from one of the online shops. Pours perfectly clear gold with a lively, frothy white head. Not the most inviting of aromas as far as DIPAs go - thereís some grass, leaves, mild yeast and drying berries. The flavor is moderately sweet and thereís a big, boozy punch in the throat, coupled with notes of ripe apples, orange, wood, grass, pear and melon. Full bodied with high carbonation. Warm to hot on the finish with bready, lightly toasted malts, grape, more berries, ripe orange and other citrus, mild bitter grass, some esters, oily pine. A bit messy. Drinkable.

TET (1910) - FINLAND - DEC 11, 2014
a slightly orange colour, a long lasting head is big and blond. The aroma is strongly fruitful, slightly tropical, citrusfruits, sweet marshmellows and some spices. Taste has fruits, some marshmellows and spices, surprisingly, some slightly alcohol in the end, but not after the couple of sips. Bitterness in the end but thatís not very strong. Medium+ bodied, strong carbonation, not heavy at all. Old coast DIPA with belgian fruits, a stronger character would be better.
