65 cl bottle bb 12/2014, 9.25%, 70 IBU, 5€. Dark copper color, hazed, big expanding creamy offwhite/beige head. Strong IPA smell on the nose. Aroma is a load of caramel malts and huge amounts of american hops. Some fruity ester, grapefruit, rose, orange zest, red wine. Taste is sweetish ending up in a tight bitterness. Rock solid aromatic IPA, the 9.25% is very well hidden, while the 70 IBU is biting. Full body, soft carbonation, medium-long finish. Very good IPA.

Bottle. Gorgeous copper pour with a short tan head. Citrus and caramel with floral hops in the aroma. Taste is earthy and floral hops, spicy hops, citrus, big caramel, chewy malt and toasted grains. Body is medium-full with a chewy body and dense, creamy carbonation. Finishes with more earthy and floral hops, soft citrus, chewy caramel, toasted bread and sweet malt.

Benzai (12222) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle shared by my uncle Ino. Clear dark orange to light reddish color, medium sized beige head. Aroma is malts, lightly caramel, slightly a distant hint of dark fruits and lightly hops. Taste malts, decently bitter, caramel again lightly, lightly dark fruits, light to moderately hoppy and perhaps a slight hint of alcohol. Decent body and quite soft carbonation. More easy to drink than I had expected. OK beer.

This beauty pours a dark murky orange with a nice beige head. Aroma is of pine, resin, toffee, grapefruit, and caramel. Definitely tastes the booze in this boy. Tastes of strong toffee and caramel malts with powerful pine, and bitter grapefruit. Quite a full bodied syrupy mouth feel with warming alcohol feeling. Has kind of a boozy bitter finish, which I welcome during the Winter months.

Hazy copper color with a decent white head. Dark caramel nose with some hops. You also get some dark fruits like prunes and raisins. You also get some Spruce notes, A bit creamy mouthfeel. You feel a bit of the alcool and then there’s the long hoppy finish.

BrunoVille (50) - BRAZIL - NOV 8, 2014
Coloração caramelo alaranjado típico das imperial IPA, com espuma bege de média persistência. Aroma de malte, caramelo, pão e levemente lupulado. No sabor sobressai o caramelo. Não percebi cítrico. Bom corpo, álcool perceptível mas bem inserido. Boa imperial IPA.

22oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber-red color with a medium-sized beige head. Aroma is hoppy with caramel and toffee notes and a bit of spiciness. Grapefruit flavors are first to hit the palate. A bit of maltiness and some alcohol warming round out the finish. This is more along the lines of a hoppy barleywine than a Double IPA. I enjoyed it.
