Una 2perIPA meravigliosa come non mi era mai capitato di sentire, Aromatica super saporita ma diversa dalle solite retrogusto ultra persistente, rossissima con molta schiuma quando si versa ma che svanisce in fretta. Talmente saporita, se bevuta alla temperatura giusta, da sopraffare Kimochi, roba koreana saporitissima, e il camenberth, e in grado di rivaleggiare con un paio di formaggi belgi erborinati!!! Semplicemente DIVINA!!!

Una birra eccezionale. Una volta provata la si cerca avidamente. Cosa per me piuttosto rara.

daft@Chez Moeder Lambic: dark brown with a slight red hue, tanned head going to slight mocha, decent sweet base with strong malt presence, caramel with slight molasses, ripe dark fruits mixed with grapefruit hops, even stronger pine hops, bitter lemon peel, hint of lime, earthly hops, both sides are balanced in the taste but lovingly the hops dominate in the smell

Bottle@Enoteca Decanter, Milan. Mamma mia! I wasn’t prepared for quite how awesome this beer is. What a great label..... Poured a hazy dark amber colour with a gradually fading tan head. Glorious aroma, with buckets of cheesy, spicy hop and fruit, the caramel maltiness is just like the business end of a creme caramel, bloody lovely.. Great full, creamy body. The hoppage in the flavour is just wonderfully understated giving a divine level of bitterness that is just bang on the money. This just oozes class. Catch this wave. My 900th Rate.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle at Mario’s.
Attractive red amber colour with an excellent off white head that lasts really well. Massive hops. Big and cheesy, lots of fruit, faint amonia, plenty alpha and some good caramel maltiness lurking menacingly in the background. This is excellent, just bloody excellent. Deep toffee and earthy malt underpins the huge hops SO bloody well. I honestly don’t recall ever having a beer so intensely hoppy but so well balanced. This is proof to me that you don’t need to go the full black IPA route in order to make a balanced double IPA. Big fruit and bitterness all the way through. Loads of grass and leafy hoppage. Great length to the bitterness which again, is perfectly balanced thanks to a pinch of muscavado sugar. This is a truly excellent piece of brewing. Finesse coming out of its ears, elegance of a quality that is only usually found in fine wines. Just bloody excellent.

Intensa, profumata ed elegante. Schiuma compatta ed abbondante. All’olfatto note di caramello e frutta tropicale. Al palato è veramente un pasto... toffee, mango, buccia d’arancia, cannella, pino, ed un pizzico di liquirizia. Ottimo equilibrio tra malto e luppolo con tanto tanto corpo. Ottima!!!

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2013 Grandiosa DIPA, meravigliosamente equilibrata e con una luppolatura davvero sensuale. Ho assagiato birre dello stesso stile di questa, anche con voti più alti di questa, che erano decisamente peggiori.

Swaroga (1477) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 8, 2012
75cl bottle. Dark brown, can’t see through it. medium tanned head. Nose : tart, burned caramel and a bit toffee. Distinctive citrus notes like a grapefruit or orange peel but all that mixed into a tart overall aroma. Sip ; medium body with thick and oily texture. Full body with low carbonation. It’s sweet tart background with overpowering bitterness that reminds me of a coffee where I use to like drop some lemon juice in it apart that here I would replace it with some grapefruit. The taste and body is close to Shark Pants from struise brewers. Long aftertaste makes my lips become sticky. Intensive. Must enjoy.

imperial IPA eccezionale. ambrata con schiuma sottile e poco persistente. Al naso piacevolissima con sentori di mandarino e lieve erbeceo. in bocca esplosione di sensaziono. Ottima
