Aroma: lactose, mango, hint of vanilla.
Appearace: yellow color, very hazy, medium-sized head.
Taste: semi-sweet, flavour of mango, lactose, vanilla and pineapple.

Lactose- and vanilla-containing DIPA by Evil Twin, can from the Struise shop in Bruges, shared with Goedele. Tightly cobweb-lacing, egg-white, moussy, dense head, misty egg yolk yellow robe with warmer peachy tinge. Aroma of mango juice, blood orange, granadilla, some vague vanilla but not exaggeratedly so (not necessarily a bad thing here), pineapple, jasmin blossoms, dough, lime. Sweet fruity onset, granadilla, mango, pineapple, some papaja perhaps, soft carbo, slick and creamy, full mouthfeel yet not nearly as creamy as I was expecting it to be based on the added lactose; doughy, soft malt base, aromatic finish with lots of mango, pineapple and guava fruitiness, returning vanilla in a very volatile, brief way; soft bitterness but the sweetness prevails. Interesting 'desserty' and indeed NEIPA interpretation of double IPA, less lactose-creamy and vanilla-flavoured than expected but tasty, if perhaps too sweet.

Can from BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Aroma is fruity hops, juicy fruits, vanilla, some hoppy dankness, tropical notes, and citrus. Flavour has some sweetness from the vanilla and a medium bitterness. No booze at all, nice! Body is medium. A lovely juicy IPA with the vanilla used tastefully. cinek (502) - krakow, POLAND - DEC 29, 2017
puszka. pomarańczowe, wyraźnie zamglone, obfita czapka białego korzucha, który pięknie koronkuje. aromat grejpfruta, iglaków, waniliowego szejka, choć zdecydowanie bardziej gorzki niż słodki. wymarzony aromat dla imperialnej ipy. w smaku gęste, umiarkowanie gorzkie i słodkie, im cieplejsze tym bardziej słodkie. lekka mineralność na finiszu. alkohol pięknie ukryty. pije się mega przyjemnie. najlepsze imp. ipa jakie piłem. genialne Saeglopur (2415) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - DEC 27, 2017
Score: 8 / 4 / 9 / 4 / 16SG111 (2145) - New York, USA - DEC 23, 2017
1 pint can from MBC, canned 10/06/17.
Yellow, hazy body, with a medium, fluffy, white head.
Aroma of dankness, wet grass, pine, apricot and orange juice, mango, honeydew melon, vanilla, oats.
Lovely taste, with quite similar aromas, but also a broad, smooth body of biscuit, vanilla, some milkiness.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes moderate bitter, a bit sweet, a bit dry, medium warming, dank, a bit milky, with vanilla, oats, juice, lingering pine.
Very tasty. Especially the taste is lovely, with a great mix of the typical juicy and dank notes, with a very smooth, sweet body. Very well, subtly integrated vanilla and lactose, leading to an even creamier balance. Another great DIPA by Evil Twin, with a lot of character and a slight unique twist.
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2017 Tap at As Is, NYC. Pours hazy orange glow, white head. Aroma is orange, mango, peach, green melon, just a tiny spot of vanilla (wish it was a bit more), floral, and rather grassy. Not much vanilla or lactose shines in the nose. Flavor is green melon, peach,lactose, subtle vanilla, tangerine, little hop spice. Generally very pleasant. Lactose and vanilla are a surprise to be sure. But a welcome one. Really dig this one. jookos (7160) - FINLAND - DEC 22, 2017
