bottle@bar: bright, hazy golden/orange colour with a decent head that leaves nice lacing behind, complex & deep taste, bold dry hops coupled with some sweetness & yeast, touch of orange & pineapple with some caramel, flowers, very balanced, the hops rather than leading to a punch in the aftertaste are continuously present, great beer

Hanoi (354) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Nose: Yeast, orange, sugar, slight cream, toffee. Taste is some herbal hops leading to toffee and malt then a boozy peppery finish. Mouthfeel is slick. Itís surprisingly light on bitterness, and is actually more like a traditional English IPA made Imperial than a new world IPA. Once I grasped this, the beer made more sense and I was able to orientate myself with it.

Iznogud (572) - CROATIA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Bruxelles. Pours amber with white head. Malty, spicy and yeasty. Not sure if something was wrong with the bottle but it doesnít really taste like IPA. Was disappointed.

stevoj (1972) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Pours normal muddy black, but with rather full, fluffy dark beige head. Roast grains and hops vie for the taste buds in a nicely blended beer. Bitter finish.

rockana (133) - Zadar/Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 3, 2014
Beautiful hazy amber color with nice big white head. Medium to full body. Aroma is slightly hoppy, mango, and piney notes. Some dry hopps too. Very fruity. Taste is overall sweet, followed by some pleasant bitterness, that dissipates rather quickly. This one is a must try, really unique and a nice surprise. I expected standard IPA, but this one is nothing close to the standard, itís much better, and even if you donít like IPA so much, you wonít be dissapointed by what this beer has to offer. Iím in love <3

HammerTroll (318) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 3, 2014
Nice hazy dark orange color, extremely big off-white head. Hoppy nose. Biiig mango aroma, not grassy at all. Pleasant sweet taste with medium long slightly bitter finish. Body is medium to full, soft carbonated, creamy texture. Alcohol is very well hidden. All in all, great DIPA, not as bitter as most of us would expect, but with great mango aroma. Really refreshing.

Cunningham (4304) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2014
Appearance: Hazy deep golden color with a fine thick white head. Nice lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, some yeast and citric hoppy. Mild malty.
Palate: Medium + body. Tad sweet and a fresh bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Pleasant citric hoppy, toffee, yeast (saisonish) and balanced mild round fruity flavour. Kind of plum fruity. Some spicy notes. Where did all the alcohol go? Dangerously well hidden.
Overall impression: Pure class. Note very typical DIPA! IPA meets saison and they live together in perfect harmony the rest of their lives. One more please!

aleigator (174) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2014
Amber golden color with a decent white head. Nose is full of fruit aromas, lots of fresh hops and a copper, metallic hint. Begins with soft, bready malt, which soon only underlines fresh, fruity, tropical hops. In this tropical flavor, there are pinches of both lemony bitterness and spicy, alcoholic warmth detectable. Also malts turn sweeter as the big hopwave brushes down the throat, along with a blistering, high carbonation, which is surprisingly spice loaded. Metallic, very bitter, scalding finish, well supported by a lively, coppery carbonation, in which also toffeeish, burned malt shines through. Biting spice sharpness drys out the palate for quite a while, I honestly think that "Magma" is the perfect name for this unusual double IPA, which convinces on the hop part, but also contains a lot aggressive, hot spices.

jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2014
Thanks to Arjen for sharing. Cloudy dark golden colored. Beautiful nose of hops (Simcoe), fruit, and pine. Pleasant bitter flavor, Simcoe again, fruity nose, thick mouthfeel. Iím not a big fan of the style, but the balance and especially the Simcoe is just great. A big surprise to me, but a splendid brew, ranks among my favorite DIPAís.

chinchill (1617) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2014
On tap at the Atlanta Yard House. A: lclear medium amber with a somewhat weak head. Aroma: boozy with a hint of cognac oversome Belgian yeast and a trace of bread. Flavor: lsweet up front turning ightly bitter by the finish. Building booziness. Feel: light-medium body; carbonation seems too low.

This is far from my favourite style (actually one of my least favourite!) but this is a very tasty brew. Amber coloured. Aroma is a bit off - something strange mixed with the fruity hops. Taste is spot on - big tropical fruits, bitterness, mild yeasty tang and a sweet finish. Lovely beer.
