Appearance: Clear amber with white finger thick head.
Aroma: Mango, peach, note of citrus, pine, biscuity and resinous. Subtle hint marzipan and marmalade.
Taste: Medium sweetness, medium/high bitterness, low/medium sourness, with slight marzipan, apple and herbiness.
Palate: Smooth thin texture, medium body and mouthfeel, prickly/average carbonation. The finish is lingering, its starts off slightly sweet caramel and then turns bitter with a warming alcohol finale.

33 cl. bottle sampled @ Eet & Bierlokaal De Molen during RBESG 2013. Thx! to jmgreenuk. Quite exited about this one because Thronbridge is attached to it. Lovely label & bottle. Golden with a huge creamy white head. Nose is old hops but still plenty of goodness, citrus, creamy some sweet yeast showing, fruity with mellow grapefruit. Taste is creamy citrus hops, bit mellow out fruity, malts, sweet herbs & spices, some pine & caramel, hint floral. Creamy body. Still very good must have been really exceptional fresh. jmgreenuk (10004) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham and shared at the RBESG 2013 Grand Tasting. Poured a cloudy medium amber with a big frothy white head and loads of lace. The aroma is dry yeast and malt with some red berry citrus fruit. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with bags of alcohol liqourice. A super beer but one to share with friends.

From the big corked bottle...poured in a Corsendonk chalice.
Big cork pop...pours a golden with large head and lace.
Aroma of grape jelly, wet streets, tangerine spritz.
Significant carbonation and mouthfeel.
Flavors of candy sugar, bitter herbs, straw and floral hops, honey, slight black cherry soda, tobacco juice, grassy hops, pine sap.
Overall big and bold with familiar and complex flavors...a bit more fruity and bitter than many big double IPAs, but this is their own unique style - Double Extra Pale Ale. Tasty and more fun than some of the other big corked expensive bottles...I’d gladly have it again! camborne (1029) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Huge stone fruit nose. flavor really stands out with hops fruitiness. Some citrus and resin also. Mouth feel is syrupy. Super tasty. Idiosynkrasie (7974) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2013
750ml bottle. Filmy orangey dark golden colour with average to huge, firm, frothy to creamy, moderately lasting and lacing, white head. Intense fruity and hoppy aroma, peach, peach, peach, hints of mango. Taste is moderately sweet fruity, lots of peach again, a cautious citrusy touch, hints of bitter hop. Slightly too sweet but still yummy. Beergeek23322 (2643) - Chester, Virginia, USA - JUN 11, 2013
750 ml. corked and caged bottle. As soon as the cork pops, the aromas leave the bottle. Citrus, pine and tropical fruit. Great mouth feel and a dry hoppy finish that is not overwhelming with alcohol burn. Great DIPA.
