ZodiacM (757) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2015
OK, de Ot The Explorer, botteldatum sep 2014, iets te oud voor een double IPA. Begon met een gusher, maar de smaak viel nog redelijk mee: hop, gedroogd fruit, lekker bitter. Wsl. Uitbundiger van smaak vorig jaar, maar nog steed goed te doen.

mile (3771) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle. Dark golden, cloudy, average to large and mostly lasting head. Moderate to full malty sweetish aroma, caramel and light bread with some tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - light piney hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light bread with some tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - light piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel and light bread with light tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit /piney hoppyness, light - some alcohol. Caramel sweetish DIPA with notes of bread, too much alcohol considering the body. Nice head though.

MoritzF (9267) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2015
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, amber colour with a short and off-white foamy head. Fruity hoppy and mildly piney aroma with notes of cough syrup, citrus zests and black tea, backed by a mildly caramelly malty touch. Sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied with a soft carbonation. Syrupy malty and juicy fruity, slightly piney hoppy taste with notes of ripe fruits, even exotic accents; balanced bitter-sweet and lasting finish with a muted alcoholic strength. Quaffable. 20.VI.15

Gurthnar (4777) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle at 100 piv. Aroma lots of hops, citrusy. Also lots of maltiness, biscuity, toffee. Hazy deep orange colour. Stable head. The most noticeable thing for me here is the overall intensity of all the flavours. Same as in aroma, not overly complicated, but rich, rather full bodied but also rather bitter. Very high bitterness overcomes high residual sweetness. Alcohol is noticeable yet feels mellow, adding a layer of pleasant warmth. Excellent.
