GSAP (497) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Smaak is niet zo prikkelend bitter, meer fris zoet met zachte bitter tonen, druiven, passievrucht. Aroma is wat kruidig, overrijp fruit en wat honing. Wat koud ingeschonken, maar kraag is vlak op donkeroranje.

Fruity aroma of citrus, orange peel, grapefruit, pine, malts, some resin. Flavour is fruity and hoppy with a long lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice thick body. This DIPA has the kind of balance between fruits and malts that I enjoy the best. Well done, Rooie Dop.

mcberko (6419) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2014
330mL bottle, pours an opaque orange amber with a small beige head and lots of sediment. Nose is rich with solid balance of resinous hops and big caramel malt backing. Flavour is thick and rich, with the same flavour balance - the caramel malt backing makes for a chewy IIPA without really much residual sweetness. A "nourishing" IIPA here. Very nice.

thanatosti (906) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Clear dark amber with a white head. Aroma of citrus fruits and peach. Not overly bitter but a long continuous overall bitterness is present all the time. Alcohol is very well concealed. All in all a very balanced double IPA.Maybe a fresher bottle would pack more of a punch, mine was bottlef in september 2013, but I kinda like it this way.
