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 wouldnt call it a Double IPA. Only light aroma, and its mostly spice and Belgian phenolics. Very little evidence of hops, but again, its a perfectly balanced beer.

Bottle from Deconinck, Vichte - BE. Color: hazy dark golden blond beer with no carbonation and small white foam. Smell: sweet malt and hops. Yeast notes. Alcohol. Resin. Taste: medium palate with hoppy and high malt alcohol taste. High resin and alcohol taste. Bad balance. Not really drinkable. It seems to be barrel aged... Astringent from alcohol. Taste: alcohol taste. Astringent from alcohol. Resin. Very bad experience...

Troebel oranjekleurig bier. Fruitig aroma van sinas, perzik, mango. Fruitige, licht zoete smaak zelfs. Slechts een hele slappe, zeer licht bittere, afdronk. Het is een lekker bier maar ZEKER geen double ipa zoals het etiket vermeld. Had hier meer van verwacht..

bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Aroma of malt and light hops. Bright cloudy medium amber color, sudsy white head that has volume issues, splotches of lace. Taste is malt that gives way to strong European hops, moving through a swallow that adds biscuit and light citrus. The finish begins with hop domination, but slowly and surely the malt re-activates. giving the end a nice balance. Pretty good stuff.

Hopverdju (210) - BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2016
33 cl fles blind geproefd met een vriend. Amberkleurig bier met dunne witte schuimkraag. Geur: Onaangenaam, kazig, zurig zoetig. Smaak: zoetig, honing, abrikoos, reeds wat oxidatie? Na onthulling bleek: nog 3 maand voor einde houdbaarheidsdatum. Dit zou in principe toch nog goed moeten zijn? Op het etiket staat verder ook nog : Belgian Ale, mja En daaronder staat vermeld : Double IPA, jongens, jongens, NO WAY! Als het zo was, dan reste er toch nog iets van bitterheid!

erickok (4626) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2016
Cloudy amber body, creamy white head. Heavy aroma on amber malts, cookies, oatmeal, overripe peaches, grapefruit. Quite heavy carbonation, that could be improved upon. I love the start, ending is a bit dimmed. (33cl bottle from Dranken Pauwels)

tia (1476) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Bottle. Hazy light brown with foamy white head and floaters. Smells a little off, sweet and astringent. Flavor isnt great either. Might be old.

33cl bottle. Pale golden colour with yeasts sediments floating. Yeast aroma, hints of cascade. Ways too carbonated, the fluid gush in the outside.

Bornyensis (321) - BELGIUM - NOV 10, 2015
Een zeer bittere IPA, een goede kleur, aroma van lychee en pompelmoes, vandaar de iets bitterigheid in de na-smaak.

nearbeer (4473) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 20, 2015
33 cl. looks like bb Aug 2016. The slow gusher pours a cloudy dark brown with a sticky foam. Nose is brown sugar, toffee, raisin and a touch of cocoa. Tastes of toffee, chocolate, evergreen resin and wood. Long finish has a hint of oak. Overall not much of an IPA and kind of a muddle of flavors, but not awful. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Icedwarf (1006) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2015
Troebel lichtbruin bier met schuim. Smaak is krachtig hoppig bitter en licht zoet, citrus en ananas. Smaak blijft lang hangen.
