Countbeer (4483) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle @ZZT IV: Creamy light tan ish head, disappears really slow on top of a deep dark hazy amber colored beer. Doesn’t really look like a DIPA, but the long staying lovely head makes it still very nice to watch. Smell lots of hops (duh), citrus, pine, light grape, light creamy, resin. Taste is a pretty subtle mix of: fruity hop notes pine, citrus, mango, apricot, resin, hops, bitter, hop bitter, some creamy notes and a nice hint of malts/barley malts. Aftertaste of hops, grass, bitter and fruit. Very good aftertaste. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and a light creamy texture. Gentle, soft and smooth!

Good hoppy beer, mostly citrus, but also grassy. Fruity combination, some mango besides the citrus. Misses something, but not bad at all.

tderoeck (4713) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 16, 2012
15/V/2012 - 75cl bottle from Abbaye des Saveurs (Lille) @ Klaas’ place - BB: 18/VII/12 (2012-501)

Clear ruby red to red brown beer, small creamy head, beige unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: pretty sweet, dried fruits, some caramel, forest fruit candy, sugary. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty sweet, some caramel, floral, dried fruits, caramel, bit cheesy, sugary, raisins, candy. Aftertaste: sugary, candy, bitterness, dried fruits, mocha, dark chocolate. Tastes more like a barley wine than an IPA. Probably the age. Have to try a fresh one too, I think.
