4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
A really hoppy and earthy double ipa. Nice and bitter and hoppy start with a grassy bitter finish. Really smooth and not boozy for its alcohol content. Pours orange in color with a white head. Had at home.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Au Trappiste, Bern; 9% ABV, bottled 2/21/14
Hazy golden color. Being old, the aroma is still strong but not fresh, quite animal. Lean body, powerful, moderately sweet, with loads of resiny hops; the fruity side includes grapefruit, lemon, bitter orange peel.
Excellent. I can only long for a fresh bottle.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap, poured into a snifter glass. The aromas are light and muted, with a neutral, funky bread crust, and a light orange note. It pours a murky, dull orange with a white, soapy head. The taste is a smooth, balanced medium high citrus bittersweet. The beer is viscous and oily, with a flattish carbonation. The full is bright with grapefruit and bread crust with a smooth, light toffee malt. The finish crisp and clean with a light spice note and leaves an aftertaste that’s lightly caramel and has a bread crust. There’s no detecting the APV until after you’ve had a couple, and you wonder what happened to your balance.
