Bottle. Batch 808. Pours deep amber, slightly hazy. Small, but dense off white head. Strong, citrusy and piny aromas immediately, even before sticking my nose into the glass. When I do, I get a strong, floral aroma with some tropical fruit thrown in. Also some resin. Lovely! Full bodied mouthfeel. Full taste as well, with good combination between sweetness and bitter. Well balanced. Very good DIPA.

Bottle from Philly Craft. Nice notes of Caramel malt, citrus, some bread. Very good blend of bittering hops that seem to balance out the sweetness in the finish. Very Goood.

eManu (448) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2014
From a 50cl bottle, pours a hazy amber with a nice cream off white head, that staid some time. Aroma is very pleasant, hops, honey, candy and yeast. Flavors of hops, red and citrus fruits, grassy and spices, pepper. Grapefruits and hints of berries are present and hints of vanilla. Nice strong bitterness, but not overdone, well balanced. Nice long lasting flavors and bitterness in mouth. Very enjoyable, and highly recommended, would drink again.

Nieco belgijski w charakterze aromat, z solidną dawką owoców tropikalnych i alkoholem w tle. W smaku potężna dawka słodów, owoców tropikalnych ze sporą goryczką na finiszu i grzejącym alkoholem. Piekielnie poprawna Double IPA, ale po prostu pijałem lepsze :)

Pours dark orange/brownish color with light tan head. Aromas of pine and caramel. Bitter pine resin flavor with lots of maltiness. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. More malty than I like for a DIPA, but still good.

Really nice resinous yellow creamy bitter ipa. Palate and taste are mostly on the bitter medium side, not much sweetness left in there, but that makes it nice and pronounced

dambor (34) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2014
Pours deep yellow with a medium head, disappearing pretty fast. Aroma: a lot of herbs, with some orange peel and white fruit in the background. Very fresh. Taste: very nice full body with a nice bitterness at the end, lasting not too short and not too long-just perfect. Medium carbonation.The 8.5% ABV is very well hidden. Great IPA.
