shoulderbroken (2160) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle from World Beer Market. Aroma is boozy, sharp citrus fruitiness, grapefruit, plasticine! Taste is nice, initial light citrus bitterness, sweet and boozy, malty, and then a hop burn at the end. Minerals. I like this as it slowly reveals it’s stuff rather than slaps you in the face. Something a little creamy about the finish too later on down. Pineapple, keep finding that in beers at the moment. I like it!

Bosskie (443) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2014
Nice copper colour, lots of yeast chunks, weak white head, opaque. Citric smell, subtle cherry, hint of mandarin, some leather. Taste is fiece bitterness with surprising sweet undertone. Finish is astringent, lots of grapefruit peels, almost numbing the lips. Refreshing.

Rich71 (30) - Rijnsburg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2014
Bitter bier dat lekker ruikt en smaakt maar in de verste verte niet kan tippen aan de meeste amerikaanse double/ipa’s. Heeft een mooie kleur maar bijna geen schuimkraag. Is veel te duur voor wat je krijgt.

DSG (6261) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 12, 2014
[9/28/14] Draught sample at Borefts After Festival 2014 in Rotterdam. As “Ot The Explorer Double IPA Festival Edition”. Amber. Aroma of malt, caramel, a bit of biscuit and a bit of piney hops. Sweet flavor, malty, with caramel, some biscuit and a bitter finish with piney and citric hops. Medium to full-bodied.

Rasmus40 (11690) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle from Vinspecialisten, Aalborg. Hazy deep orange with an lasting off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and moderate hoppy - fruity. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. Very soft for a double IPA. 091014

maekchu (2250) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle from Asahiya. Rich caramel, fragrant cleaning solution or soap, near pungent hopping, good citrus/pine. Hazy copper/amber color, filmy head, good lace. Initial is as advertised by the aroma, rich sweet caramel, peaches. The hopping enters unobtrusively and intensifies and melds with the caramal to a distinct fruitiness. Medium-heavy body. Flavor-packed, but very gentle and smooth. Great.

Sampled draft @ BAF 2014. Thank you! Orange amber, creamy white head. Nose is metallic & very bitter pine resin. Very oily taste, big bitterness, resin, light candy sugar, oily pine, lingering bitterness. Very oily body. Bit straightforward & mainly just bitter, good, could be better.

Sampled draught @ Tilburg Bierfestival 2013. Ah, a fresh & new IIPA from these guys. Hazy orange with a big creamy tanned head. Nose is big fresh grapefruit hops, almost worth (this one should be very recently brewed), light caramel, oily, pine, some malts,… Taste is bitter grapefruit mixed with thick caramel, toffee, brown sugar, hop oil, pine resin, bitter spices, creamy, pine flowers, lingering. Mouth feel is quite a bit thicker with a bit more malt bone than expected & preferred but still excellent stuff.
