mansquito (3255) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Whole Foods, Bowery 330ml ($5): Pours an orange colour with a white head that leaves a full lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, loads of it, candy, and some hops. This is way more Belgian ale than DIPA; however, the hops are nice and provide a nice aftertaste. It has a nice little flowery sweetness. Body is light and easy to drink.

rbrazell (1568) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle shared at Proof. Dirty pale yellow pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma of citrus hops, potpourri and dish soap. Flavor is very soapy and weird. I spit this out.

rlgk (10044) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Somewhat hazy golden beer with a nice rich lasting offwhite head leaving lots of lacing in the glass. Hoppy pine aroma, floral, biscuits, grapes, bready, cereal notes, lemongrass, some cream. Hoppy citrus and grapefruit flavor, pine, hay, grapes, caramel, biscuits, spicy notes, passion fruit, some vanilla and cream. Very drinkable DIPA.

jschoofs (18) - BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2014
Pours an unclear gold, almost no foam, nose of strong grapefruits, like the bottle says: taste is bitter sweet (more bitter then sweet)

BMan1113VR (7813) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle. Illegible date code. Pours with a clear, peachy golden hued body with a large white head. Aromas are of marmalade, floral hops, white peaches, citrus, mild pine and resin, light phenol, very mild malt. Flavors are bitter, slightly tannic, soggy malt. Floral, citrusy, marmalade and peaches. A bit waxy. Doughy with moderate salinity. Very high carbonation, medium-low body. Dry. Not bad.

dfroms (204) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle--seems like a re-release? Or just a well-preserved label. Pours cloudy grayish yellow. Aroma is pleasant stone fruit, grassy hops, spice, saison yeast, citrus zest. Taste is citrus zest, sweet malts, spicy yeast, light pine. Lightly boozy. Pleasant but wouldn’t call it a DIPA at all.

pjames317 (63) - Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Hazy, amber/gold with a finger breadth of white foamy, pillowy head. A beautiful beer to the naked eye. In the nose, first thing noticed is the Belgian yeast - clove, apricot and peppercorn. A second layer of floral hops, somewhat grassy with a bit of a barnyard funk quality. Mild booze. Flavor is a bit odd. Honeysuckle, saffron, biscuits, rose petal. Big peppery note with a bit too much effervescence for a DIPA. Detracts from the hops, which are hard to pin down in this one. Would prefer if they omitted the "DOuble IPA" label from the bottle and just let the mind ponder the infinite space occupied by the Belgian Ale category. Overall, this is a fine ale. Tons of depth and complexity. Very good.

superspak (2408) - Michigan, USA - MAY 17, 2014
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 2016. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy bright orange color with a 2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big orange peel, pear, apricot, pepper, floral, grass, light pine, bread, and grass/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hops and fruity/earthy yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of orange peel, pear, apricot, pepper, floral, grass, biscuit, light pine, and grass/yeast earthiness. Good amount of peppery yeast and grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of orange peel, pear, apricot, pepper, floral, grass, light pine, biscuit, and grass/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of bready malt, hops, and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian IPA. All around good complexity and balance of hops, bready malt, and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
