4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Stiamo parlando sicuramente di una delle birre più buone al mondo: ci sarebbe poco da dire. L’unica cosa che vorrei far notare è questa: a dispetto dei suoi 12% risulta leggera nel palato ( e nella testa). L’aroma è determinante e il doppio malto sopraffino.

, from Beer Republic. Strong, bold nuances with huge hops, highly overaged fruits like mango and ripe, also a hint of malts. Alcohol comes trough quite clearly. Averagely balanced. Medium taste spectrum and long, hoppy aftertaste with highly hopped dry fruits. Medium/strong body with medium/light carbonation. Overall, sturdy, hardcore, too much alcohol.
Backlog. Zapach: Gryzący, czuć alkohol. Owoc tropikalny jakiś delikatny banan. Smak: ciężki, goryczka (żywica, jakaś sosna). Sporo nieprzyjemnego alkoholu. Mocne, aż gryzie. Bez szału i ciężko się pije. Wybitnie degustacyjne.

This pours a clear orange gold with a small maybe 1 finger head of foam that soon shrinks to a fine layer. It has some nice lacing.
The smell has a nice balanced nose of piney hops and caramel malt with some alcohol. It's a light smell here but the balance makes it inviting.
The taste matches the nose nicely! Caramel malt working very well together with both piney and a bit of citrus hops. Nice overall taste here but man, the abv is definitely giving me a warm fuzzy feeling but it's only after the swallow.
Nice fairly thick mouthfeel and lightish carbonation. It finishes as balanced as it started. Quite a tasty DIPA and pretty drinkable given how strong it is...certainly worthy of a revisit.
Cost: US$7.99 a 4-pack and it's the 2008 vintage with "brewed by Flying Dog Brewery, Frederick, Maryland" on the label.

Aroma is nice and balanced, with malty caramel, raisins and citrus hops. Boozy and heavy. Taste is brutally bitter, with alcohol warmth, sweet with caramel and grassy bitterness. Full bodied, low carbonation. Nice, but trying to cover the booze with that amount of bitterness is too much for me. ryanscourt (1567) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2017
Big and bold. Boozy, dry, dark fruit flavors. Definitly a sippe but quite enjoyable. Malt defintly takes a back seat.

Amber in color. Very woodsy, dank , boozy aroma. Taste is about the same but is balanced well with lots of malts to make the 11.5% alcohol smoother. Try drinking 6 of there bad boys... RW80 (2900) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2017
35,5cl Bottle. Appearance: A Medium sized off white head on top of a clear dark orange body, Aroma: Citrus, tanine, honey, herbal hops,resin, wood, toasted malts, solvents. Taste: light sweet, witha big bitterness, especially the finish, citrus,resin, tanine, light toasted malts, herbs, grains, barley. Finish is a big resiny bittereness, with some gentle but stingy alcohol.Aftertaste is a long resin bitterness with some sticky fruit. Low carbo, soft sticky mouthfeel, full body.
IMHO a very well executed American strong ale, and not a double IPA. imdownthepub (15518) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2017
Bottled, 355ml from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Amber with off white head. There are big, resinous, fruity hop notes from the off here, perhaps a touch of cough linctus and apricot, fiery alcohol notes but the sweeter notes overcome this. Mid roasted malts, quite smooth after 6 years of ageing. A big old beer for a Tuesday evenings cooking. explosivedog (1814) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 2, 2017
355ml bottle. Pours deep hazy orange. Caramel, orange, pepper, liquorice, grapefruit, very alcoholic finish. Strong bitterness. Big body. Big beer, and not bad. mikethebeast (1) - BROOKLYN, New York, USA - JUN 25, 2017 does not count
I love the bold taste from the double ipa and the appearance is tempting with label ;
