3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. It’s a hazy, dark golden beer topped by a dense, finger-thick off-white to beige head. Lots of hops in the aroma, green pine cones, resins and citrus peel, and also a touch of maltyness. The flavor has a pleasant underlying malty sweetness, and up front there’s hops, some more hops and even more hops. A nice bitterness, grass hints and lots of resins and citrus zest. Lasting finish. Pleasant indeed, sure wouldn’t mind having more of this. 120915

4/IX/2012 12 FL. Oz. bottle De Hopduvel (Gent) @ Klaas’ place - BB: n/a (2012-1007) Thanks to Klaas for sharing the bottle!
clear orange beer, big creamy yellowish head with some irregular bubbles, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: lots of passion fruits, pineapple, resin, some flowers, sugar, honey. MF: soft carbon, full body, bit syrupy texture. Taste: citrus first, grapefruit, passion fruit, pineapple, sweet malts, honey, resin, very bitter hops. Aftertaste: grapefruit, very bitter ending, by chemical, still very fruity, dry and bitter. Amazingly balanced.

149 IBU......si presenta da sola....In realtà un corpo denso e caramellato bilancia questa enorme carica luppolata......Il naso è intrigante, con note intense agrumate, frutti esotici, resine e caramello.....
In bocca ha un corpo denso e una lunghissima persistenza amara.....forse troppo......

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark gold. Slight lacing. Slight piney grassy almost soapy. Big gravity little boozy. Nice carbonation and mouthfeel. Lingering strong bitterness. Maybe a bit to warm. Unbalanced. Simple just a lot of IBU. Worth a try but not one to return too.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle from Bierkompass
Pours dark orange with a bubbly and foamy white head. Aroma of strong malty notes, some aged hops and hints of glue. Taste is sweetish and malty with some bitter and grassy hops, hints of pine and spices. Finish is bitter and sweetish with a lot of maltiness and slight notes of alcohol pushing through. A bit unbalanced, quite malty and hoppy IIPA. Probably past it’s prime.

Pours hazy golden with a medium thick head. Aroma is malts with plenty of fruits. An apt promise of what’s to come. Flavor is malts, some fruits, alcohol and really really much hops. Very nice.

Kraftfull sak med en ytterst kraftig men ack så skön. Svårt att rate’a med kamrater runt omkring, men den här var god och jag skulle rekommendera den.
