Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2013
Milchig-trübes Bernstein mit sehr vielen Schwebeteilchen bzw. -brocken; sieht fies aus. Grapefruitiges Hopfenaroma mit viel Kandissüße unterlegt. Ist mir insgesamt etwas zu süß geraten, aber der herb-bittere Abgang versöhnt.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle:   Amberish, a little fiery, moderate sudsy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Powdery candyish like hopped up aroma.   Smells Danish.   Semi-sweet and dry powdery sweetness up front, muted hops, with a little pixie stix on the backside.   While not Danish, Netherlands seems close enough.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Not a real bright example, a bit candied and candyish at times with its pixie stix like powdery sweetness, its decent.   These type always come across as a homebrew example of a Double IPA.

Deep copper red, big beige head. Smells of dust, honey, malts, wood, some resins and dark fruits. Heavy heavy sweet, dark fruits, a bit of parfume, sweet tones and wood. Heavy bitter, tons of resins. A nice dipa

Armadill0 (362) - FINLAND - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle. Foggy orange-brown. Light brown medium sized head. Aroma has piny hops as one would expect. Bit on the sweet side with some citrus. Taste is pretty well balanced. Bitter hoppy with a lingering piny aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden. Body could use some oomph in the middle. Still a very drinkable and pleasant DIPA.

sfuen03 (363) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 21, 2013
Low off-white head, keeps a very thin film. Pale yellow color. Sediment present. Aroma is intensely hoppy: herbs, resin, pine, flowers. Strong body,creamy mouthfeel, very warming bitter finish. Taste is complex, hoppy but not overwhelming. Caramel & fruits very well balanced.

CraftBeerNick (2883) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle at home, 14th September 13. Nice and clear, perfect head. Good balance of sweet and bitter, delicious fruit salad hops. Slightly unusual, some Belgian yeast comes through. Very decent IPA

bhensonb (15852) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle from Malt & Vine. BB 12/2013. Lot A! So that means? Pours very hazy amber gold with a slight beige head. Aroma starts earthy, turns floral. Med + body. Flavor starts grape. Hints at dark grape. Goes floral. Somewhat roasted malt for backbone. Finishes lightly fruit sweet with a lot of hop and decent bitter. Very different. Very nice.

33cl bottle at home. Hazy orange with a medium white head. Medium body with light to medium carbonation. Malts, hops, citrus, grass and some grapefruit. Almost creamy start with a nice dry hoppy finish.
