750 ml bottle. 19002. BB 01/14. From Italy. Courtesy of Brandman. Dark cerise colour with a tiny light tan head. Sweet caramel malt, Belgian yeasty notes and sweetish hoppiness in the aroma. It seems to be quite balanced. The flavour is bitterish hoppy with piney notes and a lots of malty sweetness. Very strong sweetness. Not very tasty foa a DIPA. Super malty. Is this Barley Wine? Or DIPA? It's balanced but as I said not that traditional DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brandman (2130) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Alc 8.5. Dark amber offwhite head. Aroma has dark caramel, some soapy hoppiness - orange, some tobacco, resiny. Quite sweet and dark caramelly. More like barley wine than IIPA. Not my kind, but nice.

floydian1 (1057) - FNQ, Australia, - MAY 20, 2013
From a growler purchased at Oak Barrel, Sydney. 8.5% ABV. Appears hazy chestnut brown with faint reddish hue and a small off white head. I get strong crystal malty aromas with notes of resin, pine needle, dark fruits and pink grapefruit. Palate is smooth and malty with a long dry bitter hop finish that satisfies and doesn’t overpower. Carbonation is quite low and there is a soft alcoholic presence as well. Quite light bodied for the ABV. Enjoyed this one.

joergen (21468) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2013
Draught at Mikkeller Bar. Hazy orange-brown coloured with a small off-white ehad. Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel, hops, pine needles and alcohol. Fruity flavour of hops, grass and grapefruits with notes of citrus peel. Dry hoppy finish. Low carbonated.

Dorqui (2110) - Brescia, ITALY - MAR 8, 2013
Bottled 0,75L. Dark and deep reddish color, much fraught with a modest bubbly aspect, very bulky and creamy head of long resistance. Rich and realy perfumed nose, fresh hop notes with cellar, yeast, aged grapes and caramel notes. Much solid and a little mellow taste, elevated alcoholic perception, binding, very hoppy body with a little reddish vinous final. Modest bitter content at the end.

Davros (2025) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2013
Pours dark amber, almost brown with practically no head. Very malty aroma, lots of clean malt. Also some resinous pine and toasty notes. Similar flavours. Lots of malt, some toasty notes and a big pine and grapefruit hit. Assertive bitterness, but the malt wins out. Needs more carbonation.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2013
Draught at Ölrepubliken. Dark amber color with rich hop induced foam. Rich fruity nose with pine from hops along with caramel. Juicy and fruity flavor with green hops (meaning a lot of it) show of well with piney notes and a distinct bitterness. A double IPA with good things from both hops and malt. Very well balanced, at lead in the style.

Robe ambrée bien foncée pour pas dire brune. Ben c’est un peu fort alors ca se sent au nez. Nez legerement mader en bouche c’est amer. Note grillé, café Amertume persiste bien. avec une petite astrigeance Amertume aromatique du houblon bien balancée avec l’amertume du grain plutot bien foutu
