Hint of sweetness that often haunts double IPAs. Strong bitterness, particularly when a bit warmer.

Cloudy dark amber color with creamy head. Some fruity hop aroma, and vanilla, but not extremely fresh. Soft and round mouthfeel, sweet malt flavor (very good one); good bitterness level with nice subtle hop fruitiness, becoming a bit resiny in the end; also some alcohol warmth is detected in the end.
Fresh would be better; now it borders into an American Strong Ale.
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a largo off-white head. Aroma is sweet with caramel malts, piney hops and strawberries. Taste is sweet with red fruits, caramel, piney hops and a medium bitter finish. Medium body and carbo. nassoro (38) - Neuchatel, SWITZERLAND - SEP 1, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Excellent Double IPA - great malt backbone, floral hops, wonderful color and just a bit of head

from Erzbierschof - cloudy dark reddish-orange beer under a long lasting beige foam; nice lace; hoppy aroma with notes of cream, tea and almonds; full-bodied, some malt sweetness and a fair yet not as big as expected bitterness; long hoppy finish of apricot and flowers with hints of pine needles
