Pours a dark Amber with a thick offwhite head. Aroma of malt with mild hop bitterness. Taste is malty, funk, sweet caramel, slight pine. Very interesting.

Bottle, Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Always keen to try a Belgian take on on my favourite style. Amber pour with a thinnish off white head. Fragrant hop and citrus present in the aroma. Flavour had more decent hoppage alongside caramel, yeast, and grapefruit. Smooth slightly creamy mouthfeel. Bitter sweet finish. Solid take on a DIPA but not out of the top drawer.

Tap@Delirium Cafe Beer Cave. Kraftigt grumlad, mörkt bärnstensfärgad vätska med två fingrar högt skum. Mastiga dofter av grape, ananas och tall. Gräddig munkänsla. Lite smörig och karamellig inledning som ersätts av lots and lots av beska. Oj, oj, vilken hit! Släng er i väggen amerikanare, denna är riktigt bra.

From notes. Bad notes. No recollection of where I had this. St. Veronus, probably. Bottle. Lovely pour. Hops have worn off a little. Honey from the malt, grapefruit from the hops. Belgian yeast. Medium body and carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light brown-amber opalescent with a medium yet lasting rocky dark white head, good lacings. Wet grass, dusty, barnyard, dried citrus fruit peel, bit spruce. Low carbonation, light texture, medium body. A light grainy flavour opening for a fist full of hops! A bitter hop punch yet the malt keeps it in check but cannot really shine. Bitter dry finish.

Very murky orange beer with a medium foamy head. Aroma is resinous hops, a bit gluey, pines, some orange. Taste is dry hops, resinous, Belgian yeast notes, a bit sour. Fullish mouthfeel, bitter finish. Easily drinkable and quite a pleasant surprise. Another for me!

Amber with a nice head. Very hoppy nose. Hops dominate the taste, very bitter with citrus peel (grapefruit). Some floral notes. Full body, creamy, long dry bitter finish. Great IPA

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 oz. bottle purchased at Bottles, Providence, RI. Deep hazy Amber color with lasting bubbly head. Aroma gives me a deep floral character with some mild yeast hints. Flavor starts sweet with fruit and mild yeast. The deep hop profile is grapefruit and floral with a mild resin hint. The bitterness get progressively more bitter as I sip. Extremely dry texture with the pine showing.
Overall I enjoyed sipping on this. Enough malt balance to keep it centered yet it has the long lasting bitterness a Hophead is seeking. Very unexpected coming out of Belgium with the layer of hops.

Bottle. Pours a dark, cloudy grapefruit color with a very frothy head. Thick, hoppy aroma with a nice citrusy finish. Smooth taste. Lots of hops. Alcohol is hidden. But this is a very, very impressive Imperial IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle into a teku glass looks very dark cloudy brown with lighter color in the rims, practically no head despite an aggressive pour.
The nose shows a lot of sweet malts with a very light hop background.
The palate is quite light bodied with aggressive carbonation. The first impression is a balanced malt sweetness that transitions into a sharp IPA bitterness at the end. Seems to drink like a cross between an American IPA and a Belgian Ale. Nonetheless, quite interesting.
