Pours a hazy orange/brown with a lofty light tan head. The smell is caramel, floral hops. The taste is tart & tangy fruit, licorice. Body is medium and a bit oily with nice subtle carbonation.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Pours alloy orange with off-white, almost tan, two-finger head. A robust looking beer. Aroma is very piney, with some alcohol and hints of citrus and strawberry. Palate is wonderful, small bubbles create a velvety mouth-feel. Taste is predominantly pine with some grassy hops and a balanced bitterness also some sweet caramel-malt. Beautifully rounded beer.

Drunk from 33cl bottle purchased from Malting Pot. Very hoppy IPA with IBU of 216. Strong albeit pleasant after taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy amber beer with a decent, off-white head. Fresh and earthy aroma with some mix of grassy and alpha hop. Bitter and lightly malty, with some citrus and dry-grassy notes. Refreshing. Alcohol fairly well hidden. Not as bitter as I would have thought for a double IPA, but I think that works out for the best. Not my favorite Struise effort, but even their experiments excel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Somewhat murky brown body and stable off white head. Good malt base, humous, pine trees, bit nutty. Not as hoppy as expected. Pretty strong taste, bitter and sweet in large amounts. Light acidity in the end, as well as some alcohol. 2013 bottle but I expected much more freshness from a 213IBU Double IPA. Poor beer. (33cl bottle from Dranken Geers)
