3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. The pour was a clear medium golden amber with some yellow highlights and a large off white rocky head that lasted throughout and had excellent sticky lacing.
The aroma was of straw malts, floral and pine hops and a earthy moldy yeast and had hints of citrus (grapefruit) and honey.
The taste was a nice bitter sweet with a mild hint of honey early on, but quickly became extremely hoppy and heavily bitter with an extra large dose of citrus at the end. The flavor stuck around for a very long time with the hoppy flavor left to linger for an good long time.
Mouthfeel was just beyond light on body and had an extra dry texture with a nice strong lively carbonation.
Overall a superbly hopped up brew: Nuff Said...
Couleur ambrée, mousse généreuse et tenace en plus d’être crémeuse. Très intense au pif avec des arômes de fruits secs, de résineux et de caramel, on a juste envie de se jeter dedans. Une fois en bouche, les soupçons se confirment : c’est juste magistral. Très intense avec les saveurs précédemment évoquées. Raisin sec, un peu pruneau, caramel, résineux, on pourrait scander à la Double IPA tellement c’est riche. Parce que mine de rien, c’est pas mal rond et pas vraiment amer On pourrait même croire qu’il y a un petit vieillissement en fût des familles. Bref, gros gros coup de coeur !

2 mois avant DLC. Ambrée sans mousse et très légère carbo. Arôme très intense de fruits exotiques : mangue, agrumes et pamplemousse. Attaque sur la douceur et le caramel puis vient rapidement la mangue. Final amère sur mangue et léger herbacé. Tres ronde entre douceur et amertume. Top ! Je pense qu’elle n’était plus tres fraîche mais malgré tout une très bonne IPA !! colui72 (1032) - HONG KONG - JUN 27, 2017
Pours deep golden/amber, fizzy, with a finger of cream head and good sticky lacing. Aroma is resin, caramel and ale malts. Beautiful. Tastes get well the malts, with caramel and honey. Then the hops add bitterness, citrus, resin and pine, but they don’t take over. Very well balanced. Smooth and full bodied, creamy, average carbonation, long bitter finish. Excellent IPA that fits my taste (a good balance between hops and malts). markovk (6) - - JUN 24, 2017 does not count
Very distinctive taste. It is quite bitter and there is a time for this. There are more eloquent IPA's around, but if you feel like you need a punch in the face and a lick of a bear to smoothen it up, this is your beer.

Very sweet aroma of flowers (lilac?) with mead. Brass colour, fine head. Medium, herbalish bitterness, dry, very malty. Solid, easy to drink IPA, but nothing above that Orange_times (294) - UKRAINE - MAY 12, 2017
0.3l bottle. Pours amber colour with medium size off white head, murky liquid. Strong aroma of spruce, grapefruit. Medium sweet, highly bitter, no sourness. Medium body, thick feel, long lasting refreshing bitter aftertaste. Gangstergafje (1142) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2017
The looks of the beer isn’t bad. The beer has quite a dark orange color, with a nice medium cloudiness. It’s still possible to look trough it a bit, but it is far from clear. On top of the beer there is a nice layer of soft slightly off white foam. The foam retention isn’t bad. After a while a nice soft drape of foam still is left. Not bad.
The smell of the beer is nice. I smell some clear malts forming a nice base. There is also a nice spicy touch, reminding me a bit of pumpkin ale. Not strong, but a very gentle touch. The hops are nice. They are quite complex. They start off with a more floral aroma, but after a while some nice aromas of both citrus and some spices appear. This pairs very well with the sweet and slightly spicy malt aroma’s. Pretty well balanced smell to.
The taste is also very nice. Sweet base of malts, with again that spicy touch and also a sweet honey flavour. Besides are the strong floral hops, with some touches of citrus. Both sweets and bitters are well balanced, with a nice tiny refreshing acidity. Good one.
The palate is also nice. Medium body, quite smooth and a touch of creaminess maybe, and a nice medium high carbonation. The finish is nice and contains some nice alcohol and some nice bitter hops. All in all, a nice full IPA, filled with hops but also with an eye for tasty malts. I like it a lot. michael_bb (121) - Barcelona, SPAIN - APR 23, 2017
The aroma, while good, falls a bit short for an IPA. However it’s so tasty and feels perfect in texture, one can almost overlook that. alvaro78 (506) - Sevilla, SPAIN - APR 21, 2017
Leves aromas a malta y florales
Aspecto un poco turbio, espuma persistente
En boca balanceada y suave, de trago largo
Fruta madura al principio y final amargo frutal pero suave y agradable
