kidmartinek (4966) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Very malty. Concentrated citrus oil. Cloudy orange with a sticky white head. It’s just too much.

Mørk farge. Én finger stort off-white hode. Lite aroma. Lite til medium kullsyre. Tung. Lang bitter ettersmak. Mye alkohol. Litt for sterk alkoholbruk. Søt. Noe citrus. Ananas? Litt bunnfall. Alkoholsmaken drepte ølen litt. Ikke spesielt god

KW92 (1381) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 28, 2016

Butelka z datą: 15.03.2018, #1605.
WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, zmętnione. Piana drobna, niska.
AROMAT: Dość intensywny. Dominują cytrusy, a konkretnie grejpfrut. W tle lekka nuta ziołowa oraz akcenty trawiasto-łodygowe. W tle lekka kanaliza.
SMAK: Wytrawne, chmielowe. Posmak cytrusowo-łodygowy. Goryczka wysoka, nieco zalegająca. Alkohol dobrze wkomponowany
OGÓLNIE: Gdyby nie wada w aromacie ocena byłaby z pewnością minimalnie wyższa.

NBird (626) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2016
Looks..murky orange tan, sml head. Smells..not huge for an iipa... piney, stonefruit, some apricot maybe and thick rich caramel. Tastes..huge and heavy stonefruits, boozy, chewy caramel, resinous bitterness.. Little carbonation making it seem heavier the the 8.5% abv.

davidezdonz (403) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - MAY 1, 2016
A 500ml bottle from batch #1328 with a best before date of 15th December 2016 and poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. It poured a clear dark amber orange colour with a one finger off white head that leaves nice lacing. Aromas of heavy citrus orange and grapefruit with a hint of floralness and caramel. Tastes sweet-ish pineapple and grapefruit hop bitterness with some light caramel malt. The grapefruit bitterness sticks around for a while. Medium bodied with light to medium carbonation. Overall, a pretty decent Double IPA with good lasting bitterness. It’s still well within its best before date, but I have to wonder if a fresher bottle would be even more impressive.
