3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful 50cl can. Batch 3/15/16. Beer is hazy orange with huge, white head. First aroma strike from can is fresh freaking hops. Like when you open a fresh bag of US hops. Quite overwhelming hops have notes of typical tropical fruits like mango, pineapple, watermelon, passion fruit, pomelo plus some resin. On the malt side the aroma is cupcake and some cheese cake but those are completely dominated by hop notes. The beer is creamy, medium thick body with very delicate carbonation. Taste is off balance with huge bitter hop bite that lasts a while. Still it has a juicy malt background with medium sweetness. The hop bite is resinous and if yo bit through a pomelo peel. There is some little alcohol but way back. The resinous/peel/alcohol bitterness is a bit tiring after a while. Extra points for an amazing hop aroma and great design.

Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie, consumed at Truck Festival, Steventon, Oxon, Saturday 16th July 2016 Pours hazy amber with a huge foamy white head. Bitter from the off, very hoppy nose. Sweet but not the malty cloying effort that a lot of big American IPA & DIPAs often turn out like. Quite juicy and fruity. Quite a dry finish.

Never heard of it, so this one was a nice surprise. Not too bitter, good citrus fruity, a bit grassy and some pines. Nice fruity brew for sure.

16oz can. Quite citrusy aroma. Cloudy gold color with nice white head that slowly fades. Nice lacing. Very nice bitterness, citrus, clean. Med to full bodied. Overall, a very tasty DIPA that does not taste as strong as it is.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pint can bottle courtesy of and shared with Tderoeck.
Dorée, léger trouble, col blanc.
Arôme au nez fruité, impression de houblosn C avec un bon bouquet agrumes.
Palais est mate, pils, pale et cara, houblonné avec une certaine sécheresse et amertume versant sur les agrumes et pamplemousse. Un peu poudreux en fin de bouche.
Assez américiane et basique dans l’approche, voire générique.
