UPDATED: NOV 30, 2018 from supermarket Coop - hazy blond beer with a moderate head retention; shy aroma of spicy hops and caramel; some malt sweetness, rounded palate, moderately bitter; aftertaste of caramel and spices; blur - that's no double IPA... caribou43 (1626) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 19, 2018
I have purchased this bottle, at the coop, in front of Zürich Hb. Best before 01/19, lot FID1325. I had a really good impression with this double IPA or Imperial that I have tried for the birthday of Vincent, in Bonfol. At the beginning, you have a classical copper body, clear, average carbonation, thin and white foam. The taste is common for the style but it is well balanced and not heavy, even the degree of alcool, subtle and light. The taste is rather dry, a little sweet, a bit resinous, decently hoppy, citrus, malt behind the scene, good job. anstei (3618) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 16, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2018 Bottle from Coop. Pours unclear amber. Aroma is strong resin, forest floor and honey, some citric notes. Body is heavy, strongly bitter with a decent malt sweetness, honey, caramel, some tropical fruit, more resin. Medium carbonation, rather relaxed, smoothish texture. Feels a bit old, even though it isn't. Okay double IPA, has the intensity, but not the beauty. IlanzerBIER (4) - - NOV 3, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2018 Goldgelb mit guter Schaumstabilität. Fein im Antrunk, ausgewogen in der Bitter dank toller Malzbasis. Im Gaumen schlägt die fruchtige Hopfenbombe aber voll zu!
