erickok (5857) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2012
Cloudy copper body and creamy beige head. Dimmed red fruit, sweet soapy,roses and yeasty. More rounded off, bit well developed. Light tinteling body with quite light bitterness for a double IPA, but with enough taste. Quite fruity. Ending is more bitter. Bit spectacular but well made. Nice. (At the De Molen tasting)

35cl bottle shared at a molen tasting. Decent white head. Clear amber pour. Not very bitter. Malty aftertaste.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle @ 2nd tuesday tasting @ de molen. Aroma is mostly metallic malt, faint herbal hops. Meh. Flavour is dry murky bitterness, but with very little hops. Meh.

dmac (6040) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 10, 2012
12 oz of drainpour. Poured an okay looking deep orange amber with a smaller to average sized off white frothy head. Aroma is horrible for style, raisin, wet dough, bad citrus, glue, dates. Medium bodied with softer carbonation. Flavor is just as bad as the aroma. After two sips I duped the rest, ugh this shit is foul.

pineypower (3249) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle, not sure how Ive never had this. Pours out a copper color with slight haze and a small head. Aroma is stale bread, light citrus, caramel, and some light alcohol. Taste is of citrus, light cereal, grapefruit, some lingering alcohol.

Bottle. Piney hop aroma, hazy amber, thin head. Medium body, coats the mouth, plenty of bitterness but lighter than many imp Ipas.

Clear amber beer. Good tan head. Sweet malt on the nose, somewhat lacto. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Sweetish creamy malt with sugary lactose gives way to fairly brutal hop. Bitter bitter orange and a trace of grapefruit. Aniseed alcohol. Trace of bubblegum as the beer warms up. Okay if slightly odd.

thebusstop (178) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2012
The taste was of a sweet burst of grapefruit, but the nose failed to deliver as pungent an aroma. Pours a rich orange amber, but the palate is a bit thick. A nice imperial ipa, but nothing too sophisticated.

Bottle. Hazy copper color with nice tan head. A very malty taste for an IPA. Tasty. Bitter. Really nice brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Die Schaumbildung ist gut, der Schaum hlt mittelmig, farblich ist es orange-rot-trb, schaut schonmal ganz nett aus. Geschmacklich ist das Hopfenaroma schon das intensivste, jedoch ist das Bier insgesamt zu flach und knstlich. Fazit: Geht so. Test vom 18.9.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,8,7,8,8,8 - 8,05
