Bomber from BevMo. Hazy light amber in color. Mostly orange with some redness. Sweet yeasty aroma. The Belgian qualities dominate the nose. Decent, lasting foamy head. Smooth up front.

22 oz. bottle from BevMo (SD) - Pours a hazy amber color with a one and a half finger thick off white head. Aroma is toasted malt. That’s it! Flavor is lightly sweetened toasted malt with some light malt and esters. Has an odd lingering finish. Medium body. I have no clue to how old this bottle is, but it’s not the best 2IPA I’ve had.

22oz bottle. Rating #37. Nice beer, I didn’t get a whole lot of of Belgian character out of it, but good still. Sweet more than anything, it’s a nice sweetness though, mild bitterness. (2559) rejtable (2837) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014

650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a translucent copper color with a big foamy white head that has good retention. The aroma is characterized by classic Belgian yeasts, coriander and floral hops. The taste is that of a Belgian style dubbel first and foremost--there is coriander, yeast, biscuit, mango, papaya and musty oranges. The palate is silky smooth with soft carbonation. The finish is medium in duration and dry with an odd spicy aftertaste. Overall: More of the character of a Belgian dubbel than that of a DIPA. Tasty, but a bit experimental.

Bottle from E street Liquor: Poured a dense golden brass color and was topped by a frothy layer of foam head. As for the aroma, my nose is instantly gratified with a heavy dosage of Belgian yeast that is decked out with spices and has scents of coriander, black licorice, and crushed peppercorn while also having a strange smell of dried out dank. The flavor is much more subtle in its delivery, however, it still does have a spicy profile of yeast that suggests all of the same ingredients that I mentioned in the aroma, but comes together well with the thick syrupy Karl Strauss malts and light background of zesty citrus like hops. This is an okay beer that’s meant to only be tasted once since I know I won’t be purchasing another bottle or ordering it in a bar unless they don’t have anything better.
