AGCostaNeves (63) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - APR 18, 2015
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. Most welcome!

Ik kan helaas niks over dit biertje schrijven omdat ik het in Nederland heb gedronken en geen info heb opgeschreven. Wat ik wel heb gedaan is een cijfer gegeven. Ik hoop dat ik hierdoor genoeg info voor mezelf heb creëert.

superspak (3146) - Michigan, USA - MAR 11, 2015
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 5/26/2016. Pours very hazy/cloudy reddish orange color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, pepper, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops, spicy yeast, and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, pepper, pine, caramel, toasted bread, floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of piney bitterness and peppery yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, pepper, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and robustness of citrus/tropical hops, spicy yeast, and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately crisp/sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian DIPA style. All around great complexity, balance, and robustness of citrus/tropical hops, spicy yeast, and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
