BlackHaddock (3598) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2014
On tap at the brew outlet on Columbia St, San Diego on 18th March 2014. Tower 10’s big hoppy brother came cloudy like it’s little bro but with an alcohol kick and a sweeter feel within. The off golden body had a foaming head that tried to stay around and give lacing. More hops and more maltiness, I enjoyed it more than the 10, most likely because it had more depth and flavour. It appealed to my sweet tooth also. I’m no expert on DIPA’s but I liked this one.

Idiosynkrasie (3708) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2014
650ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, golden colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Piney hoppy aroma, biscuity malty background, hints of mandarine, orange, pineapple, a floral touch. Taste is initially crisp bitter hoppy, giving way for fruity and piney notes, some peach, mango, mandarine, biscuity malt basis; slightly mineral, bitter hoppy and minimally soapy finish, a touch of warming alcohol. Relatively light body for a DIPA, nice fruitiness, no challenge for hopheads.

lusikka (6184) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy golden colour with a white firm foamy head. Aroma of spicy hops, floral notes, lemon zest and some sweet notes. Rich flavour of citrusy bitterness, earth, mango, fair amount of alcohol and some graininess. Medium bodied and a long, warming, bitter finish. Alcohol comes through a bit too much. Other than that quite nice.

tiong (3700) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2014
650ml bottle from Saveur-biere.com

Pours orange with a white head. Aroma of pine, malts, resinous hops, grass and citrus. Taste is heavy, malty, piney and grassy with some citrusy and caramely notes. Finish is heavy, malty and piney with some citrus and grass. Doesn’t feel super fresh, but not very old either. Any ways, quite heavy and a bit dull malty double IPA

brinehart (209) - Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Clear deep gold with white head. Nose is typical ipa - nothing too remarkable. Taste is hops the whole way through: starts tangerine, moves to pine resin, and finishes with dank grapefruit. Fairly sweet and heavy. Hoppy to the 9s.
