Boekanier (57) - - JUN 24, 2014
Copper colored beer with a dense which leaves a small ring. Aroma is very hoppy: piny, surprisingly citrusy. Taste: sweet, bit caramel-like, bitter finish which lingers. Palate: watery, ok. Very nice ipa, especially the citrusy aroma is remarkable.

oh6gdx (25696) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2017
Bottled. Hazy orange colour with a mediumsized creamy white head, which leaves some lace. Aroma is zest, some peach and mild mango with some slight alcohol sweetness as well as some mild dough like notes. Flavour is crisp malts, quite sweet malts, some alcohol, fruits and mild toffeeish notes. Nice fruity aftertaste with some mild yeasty tones to it as well.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2016 Frisch vom Hahn im Hopfenreich. Goldorange mit feinem weiem Extremschaum. Dadurch wenig Nase. Im Antrunk ein vollen Blten(!!!)bukett. Erstaunlich. Schmeckt wie parfmiert. Subtile Bitterkeit im Nachtrunk ist recht stabil.

Flesje van Beej Benders. Amber oranje, mooi kraag die goed plakt. Ruikt heel fruitig, mango, ook wat alcohol. Smaakt vol fruitig, moutig maar ook behoorlijk bitter. Goed spul.

17/X/16 - 33cl bottle from Albert Heijn (Terneuzen) @ home, BB: XII/2017 (2016-1226)

Clear amber to orange beer, big creamy off-white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: sweet malts, caramel, tropical fruit, little nutty, sugary, cookie dough. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sweet, malty, pretty bitter, more malts, some citrus, bit spicy, sweet. Aftertaste: very bitter, still sweet, quite a bit of alcohol, some grapefruit, pineapples, bit resinous, caramel and little sugary, dry finish though. Lovely one!

bonkiedeaap (675) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle from Albert Heijn in Leerdam, netherlands. The beer is hazy orange colored and has a large white head with Ok carbonation. The aroma is malty and very fruity with notes of caramel, citrus, grass, fresh hops and tropical fruits. Taste is light sweet and fruity with tones of nuts, caramel and the tropical fruits and citrus and ends very hoppy and bitter. Nice balance between them, the bitterness is niet disturbing. The finish light dry, bitter and very refreshing.

Alengrin (4812) - BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2016
Dutch DIPA brewed in Belgium, bottle from an Albert Heijn supermarket. Very thick and frothy, membranously lacing, snow white, dense head retaining well, hazy warm orange blonde robe with somewhat pinkish hue, turning a deeper amber with sediment. Aroma of pine-scented soap, cedar essential oil, yellow grapefruit, damp chicken spices, freshly cut red bell pepper, sundried tomatoes, pink peppercorns, sweetness of apricot, papaja, biscuit, white wine, faint banana and freshly squeezed orange juice piercing through. Vividly fruity onset with all kinds of impressions, unripe peach, dried banana, mango, mandarin, starfruit, with a grapefruity bitterness already palpable at the start, spritzy but refined carbonation, supple, oily, smooth mouthfeel. The bitterness of the white underside of grapefruit peel increases early and rapidly, over a juicy, caramelly, lightly honeyish and biscuity malt sweet backbone, sweeping away all sweetness in the end, where it develops into a tonic water-, dandelion milk juice- and yellow grapefruit peel-like, even somewhat harsh bitterness, drying the back of the mouth completely and producing retronasal aromas of pine resin, (again) grapefruit and some orange peel. This hop dried the throat, along with an afterglow of wodka-like, but not too astringent alcohol. The idea is there, the hops are well-chosen for the style, but it has a somewhat harsh and pungent hop bitterness which Id rather associate with the earlier days of DIPA; today, a softer bitterness with more sweet tropical fruit aromas, as many American craft breweries are doing, would seem more appropriate, I think. Id use this as an introduction to the style for those who are not yet accustomed to it - if only as a means to shock their palate. For those who are already used to DIPAs: enjoyable for sure, but seems just a little bit too heavily balanced to the hop bitter aspect of it and could have done with more intense hop aroma and slightly less intense hop bitterness. I like it, but Uiltjes Big Fat 5 remains unchallenged when it comes to Dutch DIPAs, at least from the ones I tasted so far.
