gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2015
bottle shared amongst beer afficionados. A well balanced IPA, getting very close to a noble barley wine though. Very rich, very nice.

corkyrory66 (1616) - BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2017
Double ipa de 8,5 % abv, pour 18,3° plato, et un niveau ebu de 100. Bière qui est en fait une bière gagnante d’un concours norvégien de homebrewing en 2010, que la brasserie a reprise en production. Mon exemplaire avait 10 mois de bouteille sur 24 en dluo. Couleur orangé un peu roux, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, en colonnes droites, à montée lente. Mousse blanche, à flocons moyens, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de malt grillé, abricot, pointe de fumée, thym, romarin. 1ère bouche souple sur malt, agrumes et citronnelle. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume astringente. 2ème à l’amertume incisive, avec un peu d’agrumes. Arrière-bouche plutôt citronnée (zeste). 3ème où le côté zesté est trop en avant. Arrière-bouche sans équilibre. Longueur très uniforme, sans réelle harmonie. Jambes lisses. Levure assez terreuse, ligne basique. Alcool qui n’aide en rien à l’ensemble, il regarde le train. Finale assez banale. CONCLUSION : double ipa qui est un double coup dans l’eau, pour les saveurs et pour l’amertume.. Après cela, il ne reste plus beaucoup dans une double ipa ...

stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - APR 14, 2012
Det här är en välhumlad och välbalanserad sak, smaken präglas främst av lite citrus och kanske lite lakrits. Slutsats: en mycket god öl.
