Pours cloudy Orange with white head and some lacing. Aroma of grapefruit hops, medium fruit, and caramel malts. Taste is sweet brown sugar malts, tropical and dark fruits, and plenty of hops. A little sticky. Great brew.

Bottle from De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Shared with Nick one hot summers day. Vivid amber pour with a generous white head. Big piney hop nose with some grapefruit. Very enticing. Cracking balance between the sweet malt and hop in the flavour with the ABV well smothered. Hops really shining here. Huge drinkability. An absolute belter of a beer.

Tomy63 (176) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - NOV 26, 2013
Double IPA trčs bien faite, avec un nez houblonné sur les agrumes, l’ananas, la mangue... La bouche est un peu résineuse, légčrement sucrée, avec du caramel, et beaucoup de fruits jaunes un peu confits. Trčs belle amertume pour soutenir le tout.

a good malty beer with a medium strong flavor... hops are just right...leaves a film on the back end though

Big fan of the hop mix in this one - Chinook/Columbus/Cascade...these give a lovely pine/clean accent to a well-crafted beer. A big bitter finish but does not linger on the palate.

Borostyán színe van, belül ködös, gomolygó, sűrűnek néz ki. Habja tört fehér, termetes és igen tartós. Illata hasonlít egy trópusi gyümölcsökből készült lekvárhoz, ami mellett egy nagy csokor frissen vágott fenyőgally van, kevés fűszer, boróka, fehér bors és mandarin likőr. Ízében is rengeteg az édes, zamatos trópusi gyümölcs, aminek viszont az édességét rendkívül szépen kiegyensúlyozza a mázsányi illatos, gyantás amerikai stílusú komló. Igen testes, sűrű és pezsgőszerűen apró buborékokkal teli. Utóízében is érezni a sok gyümölcsöt, először keserédesen, de ott a szigorú, igazi keserűség is a legvégén, ami rendkívül szárazan fejeződik be a végtelenségig kitartva. Nem kezdőknek való, brutálisan jó darab!

Bomber. This is a blend of Un*Earthtly and Hoppe, so the result is predictably somewhere in between. Hazy with a good head (thank you, wheat), but also lotsa hops. To me, the hops don’t add much bitterness, although it does finish very dry. Instead they add tons of flavor. Orange or tangerine more than pine or grapefruit. Maybe Juicy Fruit gum more than anything else. Striking in this respect. Doesn’t feel like an Imperial until the buzz kicks in.
