Had at at Tap That in Oceanside. Was told from Travis there that this won gold medal at San Diego int. Brew Fest. I know why! This brew is fantastic. Crisp spruce, cedar, grass aroma! Crystal clear! Big white frothy head. Up front huge big peppery hops, Note, this was an extremely pleasurably first sip as it did have the usual over the top tar burn hop oil, that becomes too distracting. This grew was pure freshness. Believe it or not I could have had a dozen if it weren’t fir the 9.4%. A must have!

This has so much banana in the nose it almost comes across as a Belgian IPA--not that that is necessarily a bad thing. Beyond that, it has pretty nice citrusy hop character. It’s very fruity and juicy in texture and sweet to where it feels a bit heavy across the palate. There is a good whallop of alcohol smell due to the high ABV and just generally is a bit too much all around.

sebletitje (8789) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 22, 2016
Bottle sample @ RBBWG 2016, thanks Erwin. Orangée, col crémeux beige. Arôme est fruité versant sur les agrumes, pointe de levure, fleuri très plaisant dont le caractère malté reste plus en retrait. Palais est agréable oscillant vers les agrumes, type west coast US, le tout est épais en bouche côté grains avec une douceur persistante qui tranche avec le but d’avoir autant de houblons dans cette bière.

Zlotta (1331) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle at RBBWG 2016 in Antwerpen. Slightly hazy, golden amber with a white head. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity aroma of honey, caramel and a bit of mango. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity taste of caramel, honey, mango and marmelade, followed by a short, slightly bitter, resiny finish. Medium body, slightly oily mouthfeel. Okay.

Thank you for sharing tderoeck! 650 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG V. Bottle mentions 122815, probably bottled on? Hazy orange,… Nose is sweetish oily vanilla combined with garlic & pine hops, strange but enjoyable, some marzipan also. Taste is strange vanilla, marzipan, sugar, apple combined with garlic & pine hops, pear, touch floral. Floral, vanilla & sugar body. Okay strange beer for being so sweet a DIPA. Terrible for the style but quite interesting & enjoyable for since I like sweet beers, love the white bread, vanilla & marzipan notes. Garlic & pine hops are low and oddly seem almost complimentary.
