3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper colored beer with a dense which leaves a small ring. Aroma is very hoppy: piny, surprisingly citrusy. Taste: sweet, bit caramel-like, bitter finish which lingers. Palate: watery, ok. Very nice ipa, especially the citrusy aroma is remarkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bit unbalanced and light on hop character for DIPA, but quite decent. Citrus, mostly grapefruit with some orange peel, bit herbal. Moderate to light maltiness in backgorund, light caramel.
Drinkable, but nothing extraordinary here

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber with medium, semi-densed white head. As for the DIPA medium to good head retention. Good lacing. The citrus aroma (mainly mandarin, but also grapefruit), some tropical fruits in the background. Medium to high bitterness, taste is fruity and citrus. The taste is well balanced with sweety candy malts, along with caramel and some biscuits profile. Medium body, sticky and smooth texture, finish is light bitter with strong malty profile. In general surprisingly solid DIPA, very drinkable, well balanced, but still nothing revolutionaly.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle. BBE 01.04.2016.
Pours clear golden color with a large frothy white head. Very intense resinous and oily hops, lots of pine needles and some caramel, malty notes with a fair amount of tropical fruits, mango mostly, some grapefruits too. Very bitter fruity flavor, sweet mango, lots of resinous hops with sweet pale malts and some caramel notes, grapefruits on the finish. Alcohol warms a bit, nothing disturbing though. Alpha-acid percentage must by quite high on this one, very bitter and oily. The hops keep lingering for a long time. An excellent hop monster.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 33cl. Amber coloured with a medium white head that fades somewhat. Nice view in the glass. The aroma is strongly accented by hops; IPA like. The taste is surprisingly mild at first. Only later the strong bitterness kicks in. Quite good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Local Beer Trade (thanks Maakun!). Malty and fruity smell with some light caramel and dried fruit. Also hint of citrus and hops. Similar taste. Noticeable but not overpowering bitterness Easy to drink. Surprised to see it is set as a DIPA though since it’s neither hoppy or bitter.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap in Rotterdam. Citrus hops aroma with lots of stone fruit in front of faint base malt. Hazy orange under a thin, white sheet and lasting collar. Dry, almost Belgian fermentation with woodiness, though nearly clean, with a dry hops bitterness that is surprisingly low on hops flavour with only a little pine and stone fruit. Medium light body, moderate carbonation, refreshing.
