Grassy smell. First taste: like any imperial ipa. They used 5 hops, but it did not become an extreme hopbomb. Many subtle layers, needles, tangerina, grass, fresh spring dew. In the aftertaste sits the sweetness, once the dust of the bitterness settles. Really good imperial ipa! Highly recommended.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy, dark orangey-amber color, topped with a gushing big off-white head that goes away relatively fast. Initial fruity nose, followed by much more dominant malty profile - biscuity and resin presence, some dry fruits. Later on a bit unpleasant medicine nose. Malty sweetness upfront, a bit of a fruity feel. Decent hoppy bitterness in the finish. Some alcohol, not too excessive and quite lasting aftertaste and also quite herbaly. Quite strong feel to it.

Tasted at the Nederlandse Bieren Festival Delft Wintereditie. Fruity aroma, floral and smooth. Quickly dissipating flavors full of hops. Very easy drinkable, as if it only has 5% ABV. Dangerous. Lovely.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dutch DIPA shared by Craftmember, cheers! Medium sized, cream white, stable head over a deep amber beer with coppery hue, clear at first but lightly hazy with deposit. Aroma of C-hops and malt, as expected from a DIPA: blood orange, toasted bread, sundried tomato, rosehip, pine needles, earthy accent. Crisp onset, clean fruitiness, redcurrant, orange, hop bitterness already apparent, minerally and salty edge, lovely and supple malt sweetness, caramelly, toasted in the end, where a wave of aromatic, citrusy and at the same time deeply bittering and drying hops brings perfect balance. A beauty.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Klooster, Netherlands, Thursday 8th October 2015. Tasting like a hoppier version of Orval, this is fruity and with and a nice tang bitter but not massively so. Chatted with the bartender here and gave him a little of this to try we (i.e. - us and bartender) both felt it shouldn’t be like this, however it was really interesting, me and Loz loved it, for those looking out for this it’s batch 317 this isn’t meant to be like this but it works, it’s a sort of ramped up Orval.
