Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass cloudy reddish orange with a huge beige head. Aroma is fruity funk. Flavor is tangy hops & some barnyard. Caramel slight alcohol. Highly carbonated. Malty. Would have liked to have tried this brew when it was first out couple of years ago. Still well above average Belgian DIPA.

Keg at the Kings Arms Bethnal Green. Clear orange, slightly sparkling, small white head. Aroma - caramel, musty, slight bubblegum and touch of sourness. Body is medium, quite foamy. Taste is rum and coke up front, cardboard, booze, tequilla with salt. Brought up memories of some long forgotten cocktails. Decent stuff.

Idiosynkrasie (4020) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2014 750ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, amber colour with huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Hoppy aroma covers a wide range of fruity flavours, gooseberry, red berries, rhubarb, overripe peach, grapefruit, also a sweaty, resinous, cheesy touch, peppery, spicy hints of yeast. Taste is slightly sweet bready, yeasty, subtle hints of overripe yellow stone fruit, some toffee in the finish. Belgian elaborateness reconciles with a self-inflicted, supposable loss of hop freshness due to cellaring.

Douberd (2502) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2014
750 ml bottle at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 9% Deep orange copper, towards even red maybe, quite cloudy body that seems to clear after a while, revealing slow activity in it. Tall off-white head, thick, with very good retention. Heavy lacing curtains around the glass after the foam has collapsed. Aroma of malts, some caramel, light alcohol, peach, apricot, light lemon grass notes. Nice aroma but it smells more like a Tripel rather than an IPA and it seems that the sorachi ace hop hasn’t added much or -more possibly- has faded, it is an almost two year old beer after all. Taste is also malty with lots of caramel, the alcohol more than notable, a bit of yeast, peaches. Again, reminds me more of a tripel. Light bitterness on the aftertaste with short duration. Medium body, good carbonation. Well, too bad, I didn’t get to taste it when it was younger, now it’s still a nice beer, just not what I think it was when it came out.
