Great Belgian Double IPA, though not as hop-forward as would be expected by the name. Very well balanced, dry finish, spicy, and all around delicious, but I wouldn’t call it a Double IPA. Only light aroma, and it’s mostly spice and Belgian phenolics. Very little evidence of hops, but again, it’s a perfectly balanced beer.
bottle. Pale golden with two finger head. Lightly sweet body with moderate hops and rather strong bitterness. Some mild Belgian esters. I'm not sure what I'd classify this as. More interesting than good.

Bottled. Pours slightly hazy golden with an average white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus notes and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up being dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and lively to average carbonation. A nice DIPA. hayduke (5634) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 26, 2017
Sent to me by Strykzone. Thanks Dave. Pours a very cloudy gold with a robust white head. Moderate lacing. Nose is fruity and floral. The body is medium Flavor is again fruit and floral. Finishes with some light bitterness and a lot of floral notes. Somehow this is all over the place but drinks reasonably well. obguthr (6651) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 19, 2017

330 ml bottle.
Pours, with some sediment, cloudy brown with a large off-white head. Good retention and plenty of soapy lacing.
Aroma: Dark fruits and fruitcake (not DIPA!).
Flavor: Dark fruits, roasted nuts and fruitcake with light hops - certainly not DIPA or even a pale ale. Tasty, nonetheless.
