TBone (14785) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle 330ml (from BBF)
Deep amber color, steady good off-white head and lace. Oily resiny aroma with hints of fresh grass. Medium-bodied. Oily is palate too. Sweetish tropical fruityness in the front. Resiny and even some rubbery notes. Lingering piney bitterness in the aftertaste. Very American DIPA, no signs of "Belgium" here.

Intens hoppig aroma met toetsen van sinaasappel, de eerste smaak is fantastisch: citrus, koriander, sinaasappel... Spijtig genoeg verandert de smaak zeer vlug in een bittere nasmaak.

javiercrasher (227) - Granada, SPAIN - OCT 25, 2015
Anaranjada, turbia, con una buena capa de espuma compacta. Aromas a pino y resina, con fondo cítrico (Tomahawk y Simcoe). En boca amarga y resinosa, caramelo, ligeramente especiada. Ni rastro del alcohol. Final seco y con amargor persistente. Un cervezón!

zimbo (809) - SCOTLAND - OCT 1, 2015
Firm palate, russet appearance, bitter rough apple quality. Light carbonation. Firm densish off white head. Quick finish. Not bad but doesn’t get the heart really going.

Zlotta (575) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2015 0.33 l bottle from Firma Bier, best before 8/4/2017. Clear, orangeish amber with a huge, creamy, stable, tan head. Fruity-resiny aroma of mango, pine, honey and orange. Sweetish, fruity-resiny taste of mango, orange, pine and honey, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter finish. Medium to full body, creamy and slightly oily mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Good, but probably too old for a more prominent hop character. Also a bit too sticky for my liking. Liked the Master IPA better.

Bottle from Beergium. Hazy amber color, white head. Bitter taste with grapefruit, pine, resin, hops and earthy notes. Bitter finish with grapefruit, resin, pine, hops and a bit of grass. Solid imperial IPA.

Many thanks for this beer to JefVerstraete. Piekna barwa, miedziano bursztynowa, metna i piekna czapowata piana gwaltownie rosnaca ze az trzeba uwazac przy nalewaniu. Piwo smaczne tresciwe wytrawne i bardzo gozkie. Zaskakujace i umilajace wieczorek. Gorycz wyczuwalna i lekko drazniaca podniebienie, lekka jablkowa slodowosc, wytrawnosc podczas picia dominujaca jednak. Jak na Belgie bardzo gozkie piwo, a alkohol wogole nie wyczuwalny, to standard wsrod dobrych belgijskich piw. Polecam.

11-SEP-2015, draft @Delirum Basement, with Ulklřbben. Hazy amber with a creamy, off-white, lasting, lacing head. Grape fruit and pine and very malty as well with toast, bread and caramel. Red ale like. Sweet and bitter, clearly dry hopped. Nice.
