3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
10/06/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 14/10/2012 (2011-258)
Deep red orange to dark amber coloured beer under very creamy yellowish head that is very stable and leaves nice lacing. Aroma: very fruity, typical tropical fruits but also sweet yellow fruits like peaches and mango. MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: very fruity, bit sweet, citrus fruits providing some acidity, turning pretty bitter in the end. Aftertaste: more fruitiness, alcohol in the back of the throat while hop takes over the palate: the tongue turning very dry. Maybe a touch medicinal as with most strong IPA’s.

Hazy dark amber with a small white head. Nice, fruity aroma on this one. The taste was bitter, with malt and hops. Also notes of yeast. A decent DIPA from Belgium, I especially liked the taste of raspberries.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Clear deep orange pour, huge off-white head leaving loads of lacing. Aroma is very hoppy with loads of floral notes, grass, pine and resin. Intense and wonderful. Flavor is slightly sweet at first, then more hoppy bitterness all the way to the finish which has some of the more grassy elements. A tiny bit harsh, but mostly an awesome IIPA. Creamy texture, lively carbonation. Lingering bitterness.
