Hazy mid amber , cream lacing, rich Seville marmalade, floral rose petals and pine sap on nose. Full bodied intensely bitter with residual sweetness. Pine and pith it’s aged well but a little too caramalt heavy for me. Lowish carbonation.

Bottled. Pours clear amber with an average, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus zest, grapefruit, flowery and piney notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and nice bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice DIPA.

JorisPPattyn (7890) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2014
Small yellowish head, that takes a long time to build, and is fast gone again. Hazy amber-ochre beer. Pineapple, citrus and other exotic fruit making up the nose. Quite bitter/resiny in the taste - some cakey malts underneath. Pine, ferns, and other exotic plants - but nice. Kumquat and grapefruitpeel. Very slick, even sticky. Quite well-bodied. Quite nice - it’s not a Plinius yet, mind...

GSAP (491) - 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.

tricksta_p (1073) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2014
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.
