@Basunen: lite söt honungsdoft. Smaken är lätt maltig, fin humle, lite söt (honung), trevlig eftersmak med tydlig humle. Ganska gott. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

vanelst (153) - AUSTRIA - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle. Orange-ish with immediatly dissapearing weak white head. Aroma of grapefruit, grass, flowers, spices and a bit of alcohol. Flavor is oranges, sweet malts, grapefuits and some bitterness from the hops. Dry and bitter finish. I cooled it a bit more than usual for a DIPA cause the temperature here was 35 degrees today. and that suited the beer in my opinion. Refreshing and very tasty!

rikstar (828) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2014
0,33l fles van drinks en gifts, aangenaam aroma en smaak met perzik en grapefruit richting hennep. In de hoofdsmaak een flinke zoete aanzet, die langzaam maar zeker wordt overstemd met een stevig en vol hopbitter. Enige wat een beetje tegenvalt is de beperkte schuimkraag, bier valt meteen dood, CO2 is ook wat laag. Afdronk is mooi vol.

Bottle. Slight hazy orange-golden color with off white head. Smell of grapefruit and spice. Taste of hops and bit of sweetness. Bitterness is what you exoect of an very good IPA. Winner.

Maakun (704) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2014
Clear amber with big off-white head. Lots of grapefruit, lychee, caramel, pine, English orange marmelade and spices. Mostly a massive hop fruityness follow by strong bitter finish, not much malt sweetness. Medium bodied, full carbonation. Great stuff.

aleigator (248) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2014
Slightly hazy, orange-golden color, with a one finger thick head, soon disappearing. Aromas of ripe fruit, orange, grapefruit, apple, honey and melon, with bubblegum and hints of grass. Malty, sweet beginning, followed by sublte toastiness. Hops need a good amount of time to punch in, but they hit the palate in a complex, moderate way, along with some fruitiness, which gets replaced by sweet, sugary malts, and hints of lemon peel. After this little rollercoaster of flavors, the beer leads to a long malt supported, bitter finish. This is a medium to full bodied beer, slick, smooth mouthfeel, while carbonation is rather low, but fitting. Hints of alcohol become detectable for a glance, hiding behind the metallic carbonation and smooth yeast. Lacks a little bitterness, which seems to get overruled by the sweeter malts, only in the aftertaste, lemon peel and orange become noticeable. On the other hand, if I ever would have to correlate a creamy note to a Double IPA, it would be this, because it has such a smooth mouthfeel, resulting in an almost dough, creamy impression.

Koning_Daan (121) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle. Dark orange with a thin head. Awesome spicy aroma. Taste is fresh, refined, bitter, floral, with a certain warmth, depth and lots of character. This is a great one.

Hockert (86) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle at home. Amber red with nice offwhite head. Goes away fast unfortunately. Smells of apricots, orange and citrus. Wonderful! Medium body, taste of pine, low carbonation, medium to high bitterness. Fresh aromas, nicely balanced between caramel malts and bitterness. Liked it!

matis (145) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 12, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2014 Tap @ Kontynuacja in Wrocław. Pure, green, unriped and extremally intensive apples in nose. Taste: pine hops, into the sweety imperial side with a bit of sourness. Unriped grapes and apples again. So well ballanced and drinkable imperial IPA. Wow wow wow!

markschiedon (228) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2014
Drinking from tap at Utrechts Bierbrouwers Festival. Citrus in the aroma. This unclear orange beer has a large off-white head. In the taste clearly the hop. Bitter and sweet nice balanced. High carbonated.
