GT2 (7884) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Tap at Nederlands Biercafe ‘t Arendsnest. Listed at 9.2%. 360 creamy yellowish lace atop hazy red amber. Perfect lace. Smoked, sweet nose with loads of stickier strawberry maltiness. Taste is sweeter, not sticky, with not a lot of alcohol warming- quite neutral- with some sort of strawberry smoothie body. No astringency, no tannins, no candies, no cheese. Very nice. Enjoyable even if in reality this is malt forward DIPA. Very balanced.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2011 (Bottled) seductive fumes rise from the tulip glass....slugishly relaxed vibes of booze covered over caramel. woody hops wave hello as a buttery maltiness shines over apple and orange citrus complexity...
nice glowing deep apperance ..beige head ,customary and glowing
in the mouth i cant find a complexity to reach the nose.. rich and fruity every sip and goes in a circle..a plesant one though ,the booze is pleasantly intoxicating me .
