COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Robust. Brewed with a “heelch” (that means “a lot” in Boontling) of Columbus, Chinook, and Cascade hops, our double IPA has a palate pleasing bitterness that is artfully balanced with a full-bodied malt foundation. With a deep color of polished brass and a nose that sings of pink grapefruit and redwood needles, the rich biscuit-like malt flavors are intertwined with hints of vanilla, mangoes, and peppercorns leading to a deep, warming finish.

MALTS:
Pale Two-Row, Victory

HOPS:
Columbus, Chinook, Cascade

Bomber into a snifter. Cloudy golden amber with a thick white head; very nice lacing. Aroma is heavier on the malt side than hops. Caramel malt and biscuit with resinous pine; some fruit (peach, perhaps). Taste follows the nose - pleasant sweetness with a moderately bitter finish. Nice and juicy. Medium body, soft carbonation. A fine DIPA, but a bit on the malty-side.

Hop is there. However the bitterness is dominated by the citrus. It's acidity remains lingering in the mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From Optimus Beer. After dinner, in Roquetas de Mar. In shaker glass. Smooth to the palate. Very resinous, but with a refreshing sweetness that makes it not become a disgusting pine soup. High abv that affects

Bottle at Dogma Bottle shop. Expires at 27.07.2017. Not as hoppy as it used to be - at this, almost one year, age but malty and sweet, yet bitter enough. Nice beer, the best from the brewery.

It has something distinctive in the aroma and I can’t point out exactly what if feels like. There’s some resin, some liquor and some pine needles in it with a slightly citrus touch. It just looks so good, perfectly clear amber and a thick and durable white head. I left it for a while outside the fridge which I guess enhances the aroma but at the same time I guess the palate would feel a bit better if it was colder. It’s good anyway, don’t get me wrong. I guess my problem is that it is strikingly strong so I guess being a bit colder it would numb the bitterness down a bit. Still, much better to be overly intense than to be too plain in my opinion. Just drink it sip by sip, don’t rush it.

This makes a nice foamy head, with a golden amber colour and some cloud haze which settles. Has a lot of hops aroma and a fair whack of alcohol on top - peach, pineapple and citrus - with a liqour like sweet taste and some mild bitterness to finish. Maybe I’m not used to a DIPA, but tastes way over the top alcoholic for me...

Bottle. Clear deep golden. Small off-white head. Stays. Honey and melon as well as lollipop and mango on nose. Medium to full body. Well balanced taste with solid both sweetness and citrusy bitterness. Long hoppy ending.

Smart, polished and assured. Almost ’lite’ but there’s a lot to be said for balance and sensible palate weight. Almost sessionable despite the 8%+. Some funky grassy bitterness late but well matched with a decent load of hops. I find this very very easy to like.

Birra dal colore dorato tendente all’ambrato. Schiuma cremosa e persistente. All’olfatto sentori di esotica, carsmello e frutta candita. Al palato corposa con note lievemente liquorose ma piacevoli e non stucchevoli, ananas e pesche sciroppate hanno la prevalenza. Nal finale amara e aromatica da luppolo fresco, pulisce ed asciuga il palato dalla liquorosità sentita in precedenza. Un’ottima birra particolare e contraddittoria. Piacevolmente beverina.

Oranje kleurig bier met een witte schuimkraag. Aroma: fruit, abrikoos en wat zoete mout. Smaak: abrikoos, sinaasappel, butterscotch en een licht bittere afdronk.
