On tap at St Veronus. Opaque orange/brown bodybwith thick bubbly off white head, quickly disapating leaving spotty lacing. Strong pine notes, grapefruit, grass, orange zest. Elevated alcohol and it presents a subtle warmth on the finish, very well integrated.

Ulysse (441) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2014
Long lasting foam. Weak hop aroma. Lack of taste. Aftertaste rather bitter. Not a bad beer but you can find better for an IPA

mmmbeer (1392) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2014
11.2 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent brazen copper-orange color, one finger foamy off white head formed but did not lace upon the vessel. Aroma of pine, citrus, caramel, resin. Hits the mouth with a high-medium body, malt is not overly sweet- which is refreshing, middle has a fine and good size hop wave, finish is acidic with waves of sweetness that don’t seem to end. Interesting.

Pours clear orange-amber with a huge, off-white head. Not surprisingly, this beer is all about hops. Aroma is citrus, resin and floral hops. Medium sweetness with nice caramel flavors, but then resiny and citrusy hops dominates. Finishes with a long resiny hop bitterness. Medium-full body with a slick mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, pretty tasty brew. Not the most complex imperial IPA, but certainly has a good balance of hop to malt.

Excalibur123 (364) - Soria, SPAIN - SEP 20, 2014
Color naranja oscuro con media cabeza de espuma que perdura en la copa; se aprecian aromas a lúpulo, hojas de pino y cítricos, lima y pomelo; en boca entrada potente con amargor moderado, largo pos gusto donde el amargor mantiene su presencia largo tiempo pero sin resultar molesto, notas a resina, una cerveza con buen cuerpo y carbónico bajo; compleja y bien balanceada, una buena opción para los amantes de las ipas.

Zymurgeist2 (1869) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle to glass at Cafe Rose Red in Brugge. First beer in Brugge at a wonderful bar. Aromas explode out of the glass of fresh citrus hop. Slightly haze pale orange with full white head. Amazing flavor as well for a great start to the trip.

Two alcoholic and candy taste taste. A really good DIPA but not of my kind...

Bottle. Pours dark golden, with nice white head. There are some hops in aroma, but it’s Imperial IPA, so you expect something more. And there is more in flavour. Bitterness is really high, which I actually love. But, if it is an Imperial, there should be more sweetness too. So, it tastes more like standard IPA. I mean, good IPA.
