COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
DIPA with massive malt backbone, hopped with Galena, Chinook, Pacific Jade and Simcoe in the kettle, and two dry hop additions to boot! Massive pine-wood aromas up front with a hint of exotic spice in the background. Big bitterness of 132 IBU’s provides a soft, lingering bite, balanced by the 8.5% ABV.

Color dorado, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor y retención decente. Carbonatación media visualmente. Textura oleosa. Aroma a piña, cítricos, ligera humedad, resina, recuerdos de marihuana. Sabor a piña, naranja, melocotón, con ligera humedad y recuerdos de marihuana, así como resina. Final de ligero amargor, bastante alejado de esos 132 IBUs. Postgusto frutal.

ZodiacM (1390) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2017
LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Prachtige DIPA: zoet met een bittertje, veel fruit (citrus en mandarijn) en een mooie zacht zoet-bittere afdronk. Heerlijk.

Drago7 (1036) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 20, 2017
Z: przyjemne, sosnowe, dojrzałe owoce liczi, melon. S: początek herbatnikowy (mocny ten herbatnik), pełny, przechodzący w mix tropikalnych owoców (marakuja, limonka). Całkiem sporo się dzieje. Słodycz idzie w parze z goryczka. Aftertaste w sosnę i herbatnik.

3.5
Idiosynkrasie (8334) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2017
330ml bottle. Cloudy, orangey golden colour with small, frothy to creamy, moderately lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Sweet-ish, caramel malty aroma with an almond touch, condensed citrusy hoppy notes of lemon, lemon zest, a touch of lime. Taste is citrusy and bitter hoppy, relatively weak malty basis, intense and condensed notes of lemon, lemon zest, hints of lime; lingering, bitter hoppy finish. Intensely hoppy but simply in a condensed and rather monotonous mode.

Hazy blond with thin head. Aroma and flavour have plenty of skunky resinous hop. Noticeable presence of alcohol. A bit too heavy.
