LordCrabapple (109) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2013
This beer has a thick white head, which surprised me, and is very, very hazy. Super-hoppy bitterness combines with thick body, and good malt sweetness to make an interesting, wonderfully rich sipper. The powerful malt eases the bitterness somewhat. Overall, a rather rugged, manly beer, rough yet with some sophistication.

Dobre tresciwe i o pelnym slodowym smaku z wyraznym wytrawnym zakonczeniem. Chmiele tu goruja i poteguja. Troche takze wyczuwa sie alkochol i przede wszystkim mocna slodowosc. Ale po przelknieciu naprawde przemila goryczkowa uczta i pozostawiony ten posmak na dlugo. Spora piana nawet trwala kolor ciemnej przybrudzonej pomaranczy. Bardzo metne

rikstar (682) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2014
0,33l fles thuis. Amberkleurig troebel bier, met een crème schuimkraag. Geur is moutig met iets meer op de achtergrond de aroma hop. De smaak is mooi vol met een goede balans tussen zoet en bitter, ook het fruitige van de hop is duidelijk aanwezig. Erg geslaagde DIPA. Met een volle afdronk.

swoopjones (5666) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Sample at festival, great Belgian IPA, slightly sweet malts, fruity yeastiness, floral hops all combined to make a phenomenal BIPA. Great

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - DEC 15, 2012
Misty copper body and big white head. Looking good. Mild forest hops, cookie dough and hay. Sweet malts, dough, medium bitter and quite fruity. Sharper ending. Decent IPA, but not very fresh or double. (33cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)

Swaroga (1269) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2013
75cl bottle. Hazy orange, light brown color, medium, white head. Nose : citrus , zest, crashed pepper, esters, hay and a bit ginger tart. Sip : creamy, medium thick, tingling carbonation, well preserved. Sweet spicy tart flavour soon covered with strong and still spicy hop bouquet. The bitterness is quite moderate for the style but it's imposing with complexity. Nice one. Easy to drink. Reminds a heavy hopped triple style brew. Something lighter and better balanced then Chouffe Double IPA triple.

altonbrownd (3756) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 27, 2013
Bottle from La Cave a Bulles. Hazy amber body, very inviting. Nose is lots of hops and sweet and buttery. Taste is hops, citrus, sugary. Prickly alcy texture. More flavours and hops. Really quite a nice experience this one. Soft silky finish.

Erasmus_ro (1289) - Alabama, USA - MAR 29, 2013
33cl bottle. Pours an opaque, slightly dark amber with a large, off-white head. Aroma is quite fruity and resinous. Somewhat sweet with orange and passionfruit and mandarin. Some pine there as well. Taste is quite exquisite. Quite dry with a lot of resin. Begins with some fruity tones of passion fruit and nettles. Perhaps some mango and orange as well. The resinous and somewhat caramelly finish is very dry. 56 IBUs are well used. Palate is medium and fittingly carbonated.
