larsga (6240) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2011
Huge offwhite head. Amber body. Tropical fruit and mango aroma with spicy notes. Dry-sweet mango, wood, tropical fruit taste with spicy resiny notes. Mid-bodied. Mild mouthfeel. Intense dry-sweet mango aftertaste with spicy resiny notes. Relatively light in body, yet hoppy and full of Belgian yeast character. Lovely. (0.33l bottle, Bier Central, Antwerpen.)

Martinus (2892) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2011
Slightly hazy light amber colour, pillowy off-white head. Pronounced hops aroma, citrus (grapefruit and some lime) and malts. Flavour rather sweet, candy, caramel, light yeast, and again the pronounced citrus of the hops. Finish very bitter and quite long lasting. Nice one, De Proef definitely knows how to make good beer. (bottle @ Cafť Samson, Nijmegen)

mensch (256) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Clear (if you leave the yeast in the bottle) straw color, dense white head. Sweet flowery perfume aroma with some tart candy notes. Lively carbonation, complex interaction between the sweet malt, hop flavors and belgian yeast character. Nice dry, bitter and a little sour on the finish. Candy. Bright, clean. A wonderful belgian interpretation of a dipa, deftly done.

Beerman6686 (4427) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2011
This poured a cloudy darker yellow color with a whit ehead. Aroma was mainly belgian spices, yeast, coriander and light citrus notes from the hops too. Flavor was mainly like a typical belgian strong more than an IPA, hops are there, but very distant compared to the sweet belgian character.

TheJester (1918) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2011
330 mL bottle at St. Veronus. (Another nice find, Roland!) Copper brown with a nice head. Aroma was more Belgian yeast than hops, but there was an herbal-resin note there for sure. In the flavour, however, there was less resin and more citrus. Not that the hops were aggressive by any means; I found that they were actually milder than many other examples of the style that Iíve tried. Nice beer, though.

JMerritt (1813) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Golden in color with large, off-white head. Moderately grainy aroma, with some slightly sour wheat and lemon peel notes. Loads of grains in the flavor with some quick notes of peach. I didnít find this to be a good example of an IPA, let alone a double IPA. Perhaps a bad bottle?

Crash (531) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2011
This one is from the Peoria, Illinois International Beer Festival. Due to lack of space when drinking, my notes wonít be that great on these beers. Not typically a IPA fan but, this one was pretty good. Didnít have that licking a pine tree finish.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2011
The beer pours a murky, coppery, orange color with a very full, off-white, foamy, pillowy head which settles to a thin, rocky foam and leaves patchy, foamy lace. The nose is pleasant with cobweb yeast, pink grapefruit, some peach, light rustic notes, caramel, and faint herbs. The flavor is much of the same; peach and pink grapefruit, caramel, lots of yeast - cobweb and spicy, and rustic and herbs to give a nice more than moderate bitterness. The palate is fitting with a medium to full body, soft to lively, and a chewy, velvety mouthfeel. The beer starts to dry out in the finish with some pepper, still herbal, and faint caramel and peach notes. Actually very nice hybrid style with nice yeasty notes as well as an excellent simcoe addition. Usually adding more hops to Belgian beers, you tend to get clashing notes but the notes all seemed complement each other. Maybe it just the simcoe or maybe this really was a nice beer.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2011
On tap at Papago in Phoenix pouring opaque copper with gold edges and off white head as well as a nice layer of sheet lacing. The aroma has thick sap-y goodness and sludgy malt sweetness as well as lesser notes of yeasty Belgian spiciness, a touch of apple sweetness and some apple skins at the end of the draw. The taste begins with a mix of pine hop goodness and Belgian yeasty spices but heavily biased toward the pine. It gets somewhat sweet to midway but manages to stay firmly pine hopped right into the finish. Full thick robust yet harmonious hop forward brew.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - APR 28, 2011
750ml bottle. Pours a light golden copper color with a two finger head and great retention. Smell is citrus hops, Belgian yeast, clove and apricot. Spiciness and fruit carries over into the flavor, but thereís a more dominant herbal, mineral hop flavor. Dried fruit and caramel flavors give a touch of sweetness. The finish is only moderately bitter, but it has a herbal astringency that seems to linger too long.
