Bottle 33cl. Beershop San Vitaliano (italy). Aroma :Not great presence of hop. Medium body, orange with a good white head. Not great in double ipa stout. Its a mix between ipa and double ipa style. Nice.

nutjes (530) - Heestert-Zwevegem, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2016
33cl-fles van bij Bierhalle Deconinck te Vichte. U: Sterk wazig oranje-amber met een gebroken witte schuimkraag. G: Karamel, tropisch fruit, citrus en sinaasappelzeste. S: Tropisch fruit en karamel in de aanzet. Dit gevolgd door citrus en ananas. Een minpuntje is de nogal chemische afdronk. M: Medium body en medium carbonatie.

budedou (861) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - NOV 4, 2016
Pours a hazy orange with sticky white head. Aroma is resin, grass, pine and soap. Surprisingly sweet taste. Not too much citrus bite. Grassy hoppy finish. Not bad.

A linstar de la si Belle-Felur de la Brasserie De Dochter van der Korennaar dguste la veille, la DIPA de la Brasserie Emelisse met lhonneur une belle amertume portes sur les agrumes. La comparaison entre nos deux crus parait donc des plus pertinentes. Elles possdent de surcrot des niveaux damertume comparable (EBU de 65 pour la DIPA contre IBU de 65 pour la Belle-Fleur). En verre, la DIPA dEmelisse est couleur ambre abricote avec un trs lger voile (EBC de 24,4, la Belle-Fleur prsentant un EBC semblable de 25). La mousse est quasi inexistante, nappant de 2 3 mm la bire. Leffervescence est quant elle moins marque que sur la Belle-Fleur (ce qui est lgrement dommageable la dgustation, leffervescence de la Belle-Fleur permettant de mettre en valeur la fracheur de son amertume). Lger avantage donc la Belle Fleur dont la mousse tait plus apprciable. Le nez de la DIPA, trs expressif est tourn sur le pin, le pamplemousse et le candi. A la dgustation, lattaque est sur les crales, le candi et le pin avec une amertume dj marque. La complexit est donc plus marque que sur la Belle Fleur dont lattaque est relativement discrte. Lamertume de la DIPA prend alors toute sa puissance, toujours sur les armes de pin et de pamplemousse. Larrire bouche est quant elle plus dense que celle de la Belle Fleur, lui donnant davantage de corpulence. Cependant, cela a tendance rendre lamertume moins prcise et incisive que pour la Belle Fleur. La prsence dun sucre rsiduel un peu plus important accroit dailleurs cette impression. Le final est quant lui trs long, avec une amertume lgrement volutive vers des notes pices. Quant lalcool, celui-ci est bien dos et accompagne comme il se doit lensemble dune belle homognit. En conclusion, la DIPA dEmelisse est un produit dune trs grande qualit, laissant saffirmer une amertume pointue sur un bel quilibre. Dans lintention, la Belle-Fleur de De Dochter van der Korennaar reste cependant suprieure, son purement permettant lamertume de saffirmer compltement et la rendant plus expressive.

Zlotta (2514) - Hagen, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2016
0.33 l bottle from Biermuda, best before June 2016. Clear, dark amber with a medium large, creamy, stable, white head. Sweetish, moderately fruity and a bit resiny aroma of mango, orange jam, some honey and a bit of pine. Rather sweet and malty, almost cloying, a bit juicy, moderately fruity and a little resiny taste of mango, orange, tangerine, honey and hints of pine, followed by a long, quite bitter, dry and moderately resiny finish. Full body, very creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite tasty although too sweet and malty. Mouthfeel is very good, lacks maybe a bit of carbonation. Overall very nice!

ardeo (271) - Flmalle, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2016
Bottle 33. Belle rousse tte blanche. Nez floral et fruit agrumes (plutt orange), caramel, houblon. Bouche : lamertume apparait tout de suite mais sans agresser le palais. Je gote : orange amre, pices piments, rsine de pins, caramel, dautres choses encore ... trs bonnes ! Enorme longueur en une amertume surprenante. Et une superbe production NL !

kaserov (366) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 28, 2016
Color mbar oscuro, tirando a marrn, con capa de espuma de dos dedos de grosor (buena retencin). Carbonatacin media. Aroma complejo, como de mermelada envasada hace siglos, con un toque de resina y mucha humedad. Interesante mientras est fra, pero cuando va atemperando se pierde la humedad y pasa a ser mermelada envasada hace siglos con un toque de alcohol. Al paladar es tambin una Imperial IPA compleja. Muy maltosa. El lpulo llega al momento de tragarla. Y despus llega un amargor potente que pierde gracia cuando la cerveza va atemperando porque se convierte en amargor alcohlico. Como digo, rara, pero no floja. Los IBUs son reales por una vez, seguro.

Muggus69 (2229) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 03/17 Pours a big rocky white head holding strong on a hazy copper body. Punchy hop nose - cooked citrus, glace orange, leafy resin, green melon/mango sort of thing happening with a caramel malt presence. Full body, oily texture, creamy sort of carbonation. Packs plenty of character - leafy, woody, citrus hops, unripe tropicals, resiny, lingering with a big wallop of bitterness lingering on the finish. Hefty double IPA, plenty of bitterness!

Alengrin (4814) - BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2016
Bottle shared by Jan, thanks. Lightly lacing, snow white, medium thick, stable head over a hazy orange blonde beer. Aroma of toasted onion or even garlic, grapefruit peel, old cheese, dried mango, paprika-flavored potato chips, orange, gin, toasted bread. Clean fruity onset with hints of green banana and passion fruit, medium carbo, smooth but full, bit oily mouthfeel, pleasantly biscuity and lightly caramelly malt core, long resinous and aromatic hop finish, bittering in a gentle but effective way, piney and toasted sweet onion-like, grapefruity as well, paired with a hint of warming, gin-like alcohol. Excellent Dutch craft beer and excellent example of this style, even from this somewhat older bottle.
