Trolleo (1276) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 12, 2015
Hazy mahogany color, medium sized fluffy off-white head. Aroma is hops, caramel, hints of alcohol. Taste is bitter as hell, but the problems is that it is unbalanced. Hops and honey. Long bitter finish. I found this hard to drink.
(Bier Deluxe 0,33l bottle)

s_r (125) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2015 Un nez des plus fleuri, digne des meilleurs IPA. Une robe ambrée avec une fine mousse. En bouche c’est complexe, d’abord une note fruitée (apparemment pamplemousse), puis cette amertume qui s’impose sur la fin.

LaViolette (115) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2015
Whoaw! What a great Belgian IPA... I had never tried it before and was very surprised... Hazy brown-orange colour. The nose is great, with a hoppy, flowery apricot smell. The taste that follows is amazing. Bitterness perfectly balanced. Only down side, I thought it’s a tiny bit too sweet... If not, it would be perfect!

dyetube (1374) - Hurst, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from Choice Beverages. Pours a deep reddish/copper color with a medium off white head. The aromas are Citrus, dough, grass. The mouthfeel is dry, slightly bitter and has a medium body with good carbonation. A great beer! Cheers!

TET (2591) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2015
A dark orange colour, a head is big and blond. The nose has tropical fruits, mangos and grapefruits, some pine needles, not much of sweetness. Taste is strongly grapefruity, some fruits, sourness of citrusfruits. The bitterness is strong and long lasting. Nice sweetness, read as not too much. Medium+ bodied, strong carbonation. Succesfully DIPA, not too sweet and strong bitterness, balanced.

[7013-20141226] 330mL bottle. Orange hops aroma. Hazy, orange red body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Bitter toasted orange peel and grainy orange hints in the flavour. Medium body is quite bitter. Good. (8/3/8-/4/15) 3.8

on tap @Moeder lambic MOusse diaprait vite, peu de lacing. Nez houblon américain, résineux surtout. Belle amertume. Bonne rondeur accompagne les sucres, on ne sent pas l’alcool. Peut-être un peu légère pour une "imperial".

330 mL bottle. Hazy amber pour, couple fingers of beige head, nice sticky lacing. Sweet fruit aroma, yeast, Sweet malt flavor, light hoppy finish.

jercraigs (9722) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
2014-12-26. Hazy dark orange amber body with a nice foamy beige head and lace. 4+ Aroma is moderately alcoholic, some quick hops then caramel touched malt. 7+ Flavour is quite bitter, some nice orange citrus to the hops, orange peel, but the pleasant citrus is secondary to the bitterness. Smooth average plus bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Decent but doesn’t quite live up to the depth it promises. Bottle, BB 29/10/15 at Town Crier, Toronto.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2014 Een lekker ipa vol van smaak en body niet zo bitter als sommigen andere ipa?s. Smaak blijft hangen
