Bottle. Orange hazy. Oranges, yeastyness on nose. Some citrus, candy, florals, corn. And malts. Full bodied, light oily. Sour oranges, or orange zest, sweet pale malts. Some belgyness. Bit messy, but ok. Not my thing tho. Too messy, too much pale malty corn.

Bottle sample at DSG’s 5555th rating tasting at Sar HaMashkaot Ramat Gan. Thanks Dagan. Hazy amber with white head. Acetone and funky aroma, sweet, a little funky, honey taste, full body, long honeycomb finish.

vipinvelp (2356) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2014
Opaque orange yellow with off white lacing foam head. Aroma is nice hoppy, citrus present too. Likewise taste, good bitter beer with some citrus notes. Lasting bitter in aftertaste. (Velp 201408)

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Bottled 12/06/14. An amber coloured beer with an off-white puddle of head. Good stuff. Lovely hops and great yeasty notes. A long full body and good boozy flavours. Tasty stuff.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle at Post Office Vaults, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney hops, sweat socks, and some oxidation - why does this have to be an old IIPA. Flavour brings out piney hops, some sweat socks, and a dry biscuity malt backing. A little old, but still quite flavourful and balanced. Good IIPA.

DSG (6329) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle sample at my 5555th rating tasting at Sar HaMashkaot Ramat Gan. Thanks Dagan. Rating #5555. Slightly hazy golden with an off-white head. Soapy and fruity aroma. Flavor has some malt sweetness, fruitiness, yeast, caramel, a bit of honey and a bitter finish, a bit herbal. Medium-bodied. Not a DIPA.

mike_77 (3378) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2014
Orange colour with thin and quickly receding head. Aroma has some floral hop and some bitter citrus peel. Flavour is syrupy sweet with a floral hop bitterness. Carbonation is low. This beer is ok but lacks intensity.

Eructoblaster (3103) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy golden/amber body with a thick, lasting, off-white foamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with grainy and apple hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It carries brown sugar, woody, herbal, and fruity notes. Ends with a long, strong, moderately warming, bittersweet finish. Not bad, although this is not really an Imperial IPA.

MrHangover (2726) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle, thnx to Benzai. Pours a hazy golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma has light grapefruits and faint caramel. Nice but subtle. Flavor is medium bitter, very fruity and has a sweeter background. Aftertaste is long and light bitter again loads of fruits. Nice DIPA, but not too impressive.

MarcoDL (2383) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2014
A-typical double ipa, more like a double spicy saison. Very herbal and malty body, with some american sharp fruity hops, but also a french herbal hop. Enjoyable.
