Draught at Blackdoor in Helsinki. Cloudy amber with a frothy off-white head. Sweet tropical fruitiness with some pine in aroma first. Sweet maltyness in taste with some bitterness as well. Some fruityness in taste, yeasty notes too. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Nice and round grassy hoppy and bitter aftertaste. Easy to drink and no sign of the alcohol. Overall quite tasty and the dipa sweetness fortunately not too overwhelming

Enjoyed on tap at Cafe Hollander in Wauwatosa, WI after a good day recording and watching the movie Beyond the Black Rainbow. Appearance is a moderate tanned gold with an abundant, billowy white head. Aroma of spices, more of a caramel malt, with a small hop presence in my opinion, didn’t get too much citrus. Taste was interesting, I haven’t had many Belgian IPAs, and didn’t think it was advertently hoppy, but it was happier than most Belgian ales for sure. Definite herbal/spice presence, more like a hoppy tea or something of that nature. I did enjoy it, but probably won’t have this again.

The head is ok, the body brown and cloudy. It smells hoppy-flowery, creamy. The taste is creamy, hoppy, hoppy-flowery, a bit alcoholic-malty. Overall nice. 11/11/11/11/12/11

dank, cork taste with hoppy finish. Very good. Superior drinkability. Reminds me of a Fantomé Noel with hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle into chalice, best before 5/3/2013 printed on the cork. Pours extremely cloudy reddish orange color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big caramel, orange, grapefruit, citrus rind, pineapple, herbal, floral, grass, molasses, honey, bread, toast, light pine, and light earthy spiciness. Very nice aromas with good balance, strength, complexity; the bottle age is definitely apparent being that this is a Belgian IPA. Taste of caramel, grapefruit, orange zest, grass, herbal, floral, toast, biscuit, honey, pine, earth, and light herbal spiciness. Light bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, citrus zest, grass, herbal, floral, toast, biscuit, honey, earth, and light pine on the finish for a good bit. Excellent flavor balance and complexity; great hop/malt flavor balance; zero cloying flavors present on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian IPA! Great hop/malt balance and nice complexity; extremely smooth to sip on for a 9% beer. A very enjoyable offering as I expected.
