330ml bottle (Brevinga, Riga)john44 (3062) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2017
Orange, brief head. Scary sweet caramelly aroma, some fruity hops. Ditto taste, some savoury almost marmitey aspects. Full palate, thick, heavy. Finish caramelly, and gently bitter. Very hollow DIPA, all bluff and bluster, but nothing interesting behind that. Alcohol smothered by the sugars, I’m not sure that’s much of a win.
Bottle. BCA; heavily sedimented. Orangey Gold in colour. Small off-white head. Very Fruity; orange citrus and peach. Fairly syrupy. Hoppy; quite assertive resinous piney hops. Malty; biscuity malts, caramel. Sweet fruity initially leading to a bitter hoppy fruity finish. Liked this. Nice DIPA! (2015-05-27)

Bottle 0,33L. Courtesy of Gregor. Dark orange color with average big, frothy, light brown head and some visible floating particles. Strong aroma of malty molasses and yeasts, some ripe oranges, tangerine and similar fruits and sweet candid caramel. Taste starts medium sweet with a lot of caramel and turns fast to heavy bitter, somehow fruity with a mixture of bitterness and alcohol at the end. Full body, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Beer with "heavy" character... altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 30, 2016

OK, de Ot The Explorer, botteldatum sep 2014, iets te oud voor een double IPA. Begon met een gusher, maar de smaak viel nog redelijk mee: hop, gedroogd fruit, lekker bitter. Wsl. Uitbundiger van smaak vorig jaar, maar nog steed goed te doen. sjogro (3951) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2015
