Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. A very good bitterness, a double pale. Well malted, just in case. Nice citrus flavour comes through just fine, there is a good mouthfeel. Foamy mouthfeel, carbonation and temperature just right. rosenbergh (11948) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2013
341 ml bottle. Bottled on 03/13. From saveur-biere.com.hopscotch (11439) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2005
Cloudy golden colour with an average sized foamy off-white head.
Very dark hops, caramel sweetness, berries, bitterness and malt in the aroma. The flavour is really nice. Darkish hops, mild bitterness, mild sweetness and malt. No hop or sweetness overdose. Balanced and enjoyable.
Bottle...RBSG2005... Lightly hazy, deep amber ale with a large, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. Floral, citrusy nose delivers plenty of grapefruit with lesser notes of wildflowers and caramel. The flavor has better balance than most IIPAs with plenty of caramel and sweetened black tea to temper the intense grapefruit, floral stems, peach and mandarin orange. Medium to full-bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Finishes a touch alcoholic and dry. Excellent and different. Maybe an English style IIPA? jercraigs (11071) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2005
Amber body, with a creamy white head. Nice hoppy aroma but it has trouble competing with the smoky pub. Pleasantly hoppy with a pleasant floral hoppy aftertaste, not nearly as much bitterness and hops as I hoped for from a double ipa. Alcohol is well concealed if its 8.5%! Nice beer, my numbers seem to rate it a little higher than my memory does. Hope to try it again. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Light orange pour with a white head. Flavor is fruity and malty up front followed by a light hop presence. Belgian style IPA in my opinion. A bit too much malt and the hops aren’t fresh tasting.

On tap at the brewpub, visited June 23 2007 with a big group of friends (no fellow rateberrieans though). Slightly hazy orange amber with a foamy cream-coloured head displaying excellent retention and lace. Big aromas of tropical fruit, grapefruit, and resinous pine. Same flavours on the palate with a thin underlying malt structure and alcoholic warmth that isn’t harsh. Smooth and medium-to-full-bodied. Moderately bitter finish. I liked the regular IPA better. cubs (10740) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle @ Matt’s house, courtesy of pushkinwow. Well, this has been on a Fedex truck for over three weeks, so it may be fucked. Fairly hazy, orangish appearance with an off white head. Pretty dull, a bit boozy, rich malty, moderate caramel, light citrusy aroma. Fairly dull hoppy, toasty malty, light caramel, earthy, floral flavor. Too bad but it’s fucked now. olio (10692) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2012
341 ml bottle.jmgreenuk (10364) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 26, 2014
Pours hazy orange color with a minimal head. Aroma of hops, fruits, some caramel, goose berry bush, nettle and mild malts. Flavor of pine, hops, caramel, grass, hay and toffee notes. Bitter palate. Decent.
Bottle at worldbeertaste’s temporary leaving The Hague tasting. Poured a slightly hazy medium amber with a very thin white head. The aroma is hoppy glue, resin. The flavour is strong bitter with a light fruit resin smooth alcoholic woody palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel. A super flavour packed beer with well controlled alcohol. deanso (10277) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - FEB 26, 2014
