Vollkommen in Ordnung dieses Bierchen, das mit einem gewissen Bumms daherkommt, aber auch eine feine belgischen Hopfennote in sich trägt. Dahinter etwas Vanille, aber auch Hefe. Nicht schlecht.

The beer has got a light hazy golden-amber colour with a steady head and smooth body. Aroma of hops and flowers. Taste of hops, light malt, flowers, bread, citrus fruits and pineapple. Flowery-fruity-bitter finish. Solid one.

I’m guessing this is what I had .. . Dark tan gold .. . Decent foam .. . Harsh chemicals, wood, and dried grass .. Not very good, why would you import a double IPA? .. . . They call it MURDA!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber copper color and slightly opaque. A foam of very good training and average durability in a light beige tone and that is retained in the wall Tulip along the tasting.
In its aroma we can see a good amount of hops, and discreet sweetness of caramel / toffee and at the same time emerges delicious and refreshing scent of passion fruit, tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, the lemon zest, the bark of orange, pepper, as well as the floral notes of grass and why not, a fluffy toasted bread in this amazing range of flavors. Lords (as) a nice bunch of complexity in the aroma.
The flavor follows the aroma and shows excellent. High intensity and not so heavy. Has the strength of a landmark Citrus accompanying the footprint of pepper yeast and tropical hops, through the taste of dark malt, the delicious bread, and are balanced. At no time shall any feeling cloying this true diversity.
Persistent notes of mandarin, grapefruit, passion fruit, pineapple, explode in the mouth, and should be noted that the bitterness is quite clear leaving a dry mouth during the tasting, but that at no time bother.
In mister sweetness of the malt pronounced that refers to caramelized toffee and balances with the fruity bitterness and citric tropical fruit grows the beauty of this drink that still strives for hops flavor proves more herbaceous. Great balance and strength.
Its aftertaste is intense and leaves a lingering bitterness.
The body is medium, as well as its carbonation, a very mild taste and moderately crisp / sticky. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal heat present after the finish.
In short I can claim to be an excellent beer DIPA Belgian style. Owner of a complex, robust and enviable balance making it very smooth to drink.
