Bottle, Thx Klaas for sharing
APPEARANCE: clear darker blond beer, nice stable off white head.
NOSE: hoppy, very dense, florar, little earthy, some alcohol, little sweet.
TASTE: alcoholic, bitter and dry aftertaste. Quite hoppy but dry. Dry-out effect.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Medium level floral and piney hop aroma. Nice copper color with a moderate head. Good carbonation with a crispness that matched the bitterness. The hops were strong but needed to match the aroma a little better. Not to detract, this is still a great beer for imperial IPA lovers. Nice grain flavors helped to balance as well. Enjoyed it thoroughly.

65cl, as Moylan’s Hopsickle Imperial Ale, American brew, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex bitter brew, fruity/bitter and slightly woody/floral, very balanced, hazy, rocky head, very good brew, yet expensive!

On draft. Aroma of caramel. Flavors of citrus hips, toffee malts. Nothing flashy but super-solid.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy orange with a thin filmy head and a high amount of carbonation and good lacing. Strong grapefruits, oak, citrus and mild caramel in the nose. Flavor is quite piney and woodsy, with caramel, grapefruits and a bittersweet resiny aftertaste. Body is light and mild-to-moderate in carbonation. Pretty good!

From bottle. Nice, aggressive nose, pretty burnt orange. Not bad, but far too malty and sticky for me.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear amber colour with frothy off-white head. Not a lot of nose, a little floral.
Taste is the expected hops, with undertones of citrus and flowers. Medium body beer, with long dry bitter finish. Soft carbonation.
Everything you would expect from an Imperial - nice beer!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a tad bit too dark for what I like in a DIPA. Aromas of salt, earthy hops. Not much citrus offered. Taste is a malty onslaught of sticky sweetness, some meat drippings, some roasted pork. Not very appealing. Finishes on a note of CIB. Not good.

On tap at Cole’s during Brew Tour ’13’. Pours a copper-orange color with a small head. Floral, grassy, citrus aromas abound. Flavor is very hoppy/citrus with a bitter finish and nice, resinous mouthfeel. Alcohol is well-hidden and kind of sneaks up on you. A good one to end the night with.
