750ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn) (7:3:5:3:11=2.9)Juks (1393) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 9, 2018
Spicy aroma, woh!, nice and gingery, sweetish. Dirtyish palate. Cloudy orange. Yeastiness is evident; that's what dirties it. Over-hopped, unbalanced. Trying too hard. Dirty finish, tastes of a muddy street.
750ml bottle, thanks FatPhil. Pours hazy amber, off-white head stays. Aroma is citrussy, herbal, hoppy. Taste is herbal, hoppy, dirty, yeasty. Bit harsh mouthfeel, over average carbonation. Hoppy brew, not very well balanced, but drinkable. suurjuust (3959) - ESTONIA - MAR 9, 2018

Robe ambrée, mousse abondante et crémeuse. Nez typé sur des notes d'agrumes confits, de gingembre, de houblon, sur un fond d'épices. Bouche à l'attaque acidulée et épicée, bulle fine, longueur moyenne et finale sur une fine amertume. Classique. The_Osprey (9999) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2017
November 2017 - Tasting at CBC Islington. Bottle shared with big thanks to Fergus for this "session DIPA". As 'Du Brabant Origame 4'. Dark orange, hazy and still with a huge foamy white head that leaves thick lacing. Aroma is airy, papery, some chalk. Body is light and frothy with tingly carbonation. Very frothy in mouth. Taste is sodawater, chalky, spicy and chalky, dusty. Plain and boring, washed out. Just not for me. (5-4-5-3-12=2.9) Scopey (16777) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2017
Bottle at CBC Islington, thanks to Fergus. It pours hazy orange - amber with a massive white head. The aroma is bready, brioche, cereal, touch of banana, cereal, nougat and candied citrus. The taste is dry, bitter ,earthy, woody, pithy citrus, grassy, soda water, minerals, dirt, must and barnyard. Medium body and high, foamy carbonation. Perhaps a bit wishy-washy. Carbonation is also far too high. Fair. Theydon_Bois (22083) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2017
