Bottle 330 ml at home, picked this up at the brewery during the Zeebra Festival, someone from the personel told me it’s the El Dorado version. Into a big Chouffe tulip, ABV 7.9%
Deep orange colour on a slight hazy body, almost two fingers of off-white head, thick, with very good retention. Light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of orange peel, mandarine, pine, light cookie dough.
Taste has a good malty base with some caramel, then flavours of orange peel are surfacing, mandarines, light citrus, light pine. Good bitterness on the aftertaste with good duration.
Medium thin body, soft carbonation, mildly dry palate.
Overall a very good double IPA. mike_77 (6734) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2013
Golden colour. Intense aroma. Bitter citrus. Thick texture, low carbonation. Toasty malt backbone. Fruity hop notes are there but somewhat muted. sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2013
Poured a medium amber with a small white head. Aroma of soft strawberry and light malt. Medium smooth body, flavour is slightly sweet vanilla and muted berry. Quite refreshing if a little strange. jmgreenuk (9533) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a hazy dark copper colour with a thin, long-lasting white head. The aroma is citrus fruit, a little malt and some aromatic hop. The flavour is medium to strong bitter, spicy, rich, liqourice alcoholic with a thick, slightly oily consistency. A nice DIPA. I prefer this to the Saaz. deanso (10150) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - JUN 19, 2013

Thick creamy white head. Hazy amber pour. Nice lingering citrusy bitterness. kermis (13869) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle shared from ABC Beers. Pours hazy orange with particles. Aroma of strawberry ice cream, caramel, toffee and light malt. Flavour is over moderate sweet and bitter, with the ice cream really coming out and a lasting bitter finish. Absolutely bizarre but enjoyable. Medium bodied with light carbonation.
