Bottle at home. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, orange, pine resin, malt biscuit, some caramel, grapefruit, hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a dry generous hoppy bitter finish. A bit boozy, especially towards the end. Body is medium to full. Rich and heavy IIPA, lots of citrus with a big bittersweet flavour.

Tap at La Fine Mousse, 3rd November 15. Pours fairly dark yellow, aroma is sweet and hoppy. Taste is bitter sweet, gets a little hard going, slightly hot. Not bad

JorisPPattyn (8795) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2015
Huge, yellow-cream head, leaving shards of lace over well-carbonated orange-golden beer. Spicy, "hot" malts, citrussy hops, dry hopbales, demure. Bitter, toasted to roasted flavour, restrained fruitiness, resin. Underneath quite some malty sweetness. Some balance, but no sparkle anywhere. Quite slick to viscous, well-bodied, faint alcoholwarming. K.S. remains a ’bib’ chain, with all its consequences...

Good fresh. Can’t comment to shelf life. Big juicy aromatic piney hops. Resinous feel and pronounced bitterness.

Hazy amber beer, good bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and crisp. Minerals. Sweetish malts, mild cream, whisper of honey. Brief flash of bright tangerine, a more steady orange. A touch of vodka like alcohol! Good tropical fruits before a smooth and semi dry finish. Mild hop spice at the very end. Peel bitter linger. Nice.

Habanero (3432) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2015
Pours clear deep golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus notes, pine and tropical fruits. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and solid bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice DIPA.

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2015
Bouteille 66cl. Orangée, col épais crémeux jaunâtre voire blanc-cassé. Arôme est fruité sur de elles effluves d’agrumes, fruité dominant fort plaisant avec une impression de sac de houblons et un léger grains en rétro. Palais met en avant pas mal de houblons - agrumes, pamplemousse, note épicées, pin et huileux. Malt pâle et pils avec une petite pointe de chaleur de l’alcool qui perce ne fin de bouche. Retrouve un léger côté de mandarine, herbacé, houblonné frais avec un taux alcool qui reste tout de même bien marqué et présent tout au long de la dégustation.
