Rhoooo! On dirait du "Miel IPA", en tout cas c’est ce qui décrit le mieux cette bière. La Nez sent plus le miel, le biscuit et le vin rouge que la bière. La bouche est caramel, miel avec une amerume agréable. Une très bonne bière!!

Ample bitterness but too much malt and booze for my tastes. More barleywine like than iipa, except for the very very strong bitter aftertaste. Lacking the florals or citrus or pine that a good ipa has to have. I don’t mind balance, but this was too heavy. Tasted and smells like an older ipa, but it was just released to the area..."

I would not say that this is a balanced beer but a beer of opposites that work very well together. Poured with a huge fluffy sudsy cream-colored head plenty of lace and a clear dark honey amber color. Aroma is Malt, some resiny hops and a touch of citrus. Flavor has lots of malt sweetness, a lot of bitterness and enough carbonic tang to set it off. Body is excellent. Super drinking beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber shared. This is an old bottle very old. True representation will be difficult. I am sure it pours a medium orange color with a white head. I am sure the hop flavor is very good but this old bottle has carmalized still good but not what you expecting.

Bottle. Hazy light amber colour. The aroma has notes of caramel, citrus and pine. The taste sweet malt, pine and grapefruit. Very balanced sweetness/hoppiness/alcohol presence. Nice drinkable double IPA.

This is a pretty average double IPA. I actually like the single IPA, the Hoppin to Heaven, better than this one. There is just nothing special about this beer that blows me away. It pours an amber color with a small off-white head. There is plenty of lacing left around the glass. There isn’t much in the aroma; only some subtle hints of light hops and a hint of caramel malt. The body strength and mouthfeel are both about average. The flavors are kind of bland for a double IPA. There’s certainly hops here, but just not enough that knocks me off my chair. The flavors are nicely balanced, with delicious notes of grapefruit, oranges, toasted malt, caramel, alcohol and some floral, grassy notes. The beer finishes nicely, with a dry, bitter and floral flavor of hops.

Ferris (4472) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle - Woody, pine and earthy hops, with a big malty backbone. Clear dark amber with a thin white head. More like an American Barleywine with big malty caramel and a bitter hoppy finish. Earthy and woody, very nice.

Backlog. Dominated by caramel and tropical fruits, grape, citrus, mango and pineapple.

Hmm, en flaska från Brill. En riktig fin dubbel IPA. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, pesika, aprikos. Lagom söt, stor kropp, tjock med en fin beska med smak och tall och grapefrukt.

Vignale (2103) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2014
Flaska från Brill som inte är purfärsk men heller inte gammal. En ganska mörk ornagebrun färg med lågt krämigt skum. En söt DIPA med rejäl maltkropp som får mig att tänka BW eller ASA, humlen är där, inte jättepigg men fortfarande maffig. Mycket karamel, grapemarmelad, tall, aprikos, persika, rejäl beska. Ett häftigt och gott öl, men inte riktigt min typ av DIPA å andra sidan är den riktgt välgjord och kroppen imponerar.
