Bottle. Hazy orange brown with slight yellow creamy head. Massive tropical fruits with mango, pineapple and pomegranate. Caramel malts with a sweet nutty touch, vanilla cake too. Then a bitter citrus peel finish. Full bodied. Massive onslaught of all kinds of fruity hops, very aromatic but still mostly sweet with a medium bitter kick. Very nice.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2014 Very fruity ironlike aroma of red fruits, spices and hops. Looks cloudy but clears up nicely. Not so much head. Starts alcohol sweet with grassy hop aromas. Spicey on the tongue and aftertaste. A bit belgium flavour bit with extra extra hoppiness happyness!

Keg at Mother Kelly’s Dutch Weekender. It pours a haxy yellow body with a quite thick white coating. Aroma is fresh fruity hops, although not very pungent and in-your-face. Quite balanced. taste is mildly bitter with more grassy fruity hops. Again, well balanced and not extremely hoppy. Very light malty caramely biscuity notes to back the hops. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, decent DIPA which drinks easily like an IPA.
