On tap at The Hoppy Pub: Nice golden colour with good white head. Aroma of caramel, malts, orange, citrus grass. Taste of orange, citrus, bread, grass. Nice aftertaste. Good brew! Erzengel (9338) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 3, 2015
Vintage 2013, SM No. 12 The beer is fruity and fresh. Slightly grainy. Not too deep, nice floral fresh aftertaste with slightly sourish hints. Bitter-fresh aftertaste. Nice, fresh-bitter, for the 9% highly drinkable. Nice. greenmanalishi (551) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2015

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 Very bitter and too much crystal malt, some grapefruit hops and simcoe & centennial feel to it, quite good, but nothing speical. eduardovl (1467) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in a chalice.
A: Pours a deep amber color. Too hazy to an American IPA. Head is huge and beige, and leasts forever. Incredible retention and tons of lacings left in the glass
S: Quite spicy, malty and bready. Again, strong European (Belgian) personality. Definitely not a American Double IPA. It has this bready and yeasty Belgian smell. Also candy, caramel malts, grassy hops and alcohol. Complex and good
T: Complex as the nose. Candy, caramel malts, bread, grassy hops. Upfront is very mild sweet, taste is crispy and bitter as it should. End is bitter and grassy. Very well balanced, nevertheless
M: Creamy refreshing body. Medium carbonation. Mild sweet upfront. Bitter aftertaste
O: Quite interesting beer. At same time that it keeps the characteristics of an American Double IPA, it also have strong characteristics of a Belgian IPA, like the characteristic bready yeasts taste. In the end, a beer with the good Mikkeller-Struise quality. No regret

Bottle. Pours amber, nose is malty caramel, taste is light fruit, bitter, sweet. matis (263) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 22, 2014
Hazy. Hoppy with red fruits on nose. Rather weak aroma. Sweet in taste. Malty base, raisiny, caramel, cherries(?) and some sourness. Oily body. Big "wow" on paper, but small disapointment in real. Torrefacto (1735) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 15, 2014
Color caoba turbio con densa espuma color crema. Aromas de caramelo, herbales y pino. Cuerpo medio-denso, textura maltosa, toque acafetado y amargor final herbal, seco y resinoso. Bien lamas (1651) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 13, 2014
11.2 oz. bottle. Vintage 2013. SM No. 12. Must be from Batch IV because the label specifies 216 IBU. A murky amber/brown pour with tons of chunky floaties and a smallish tan head. Plums, Port wine, dark cherries, brown sugar, raisin bread, and grapefruits feature in the aroma. Medium-bodied and kinda sticky on the way down. Lots of smooth caramel and toffee upfront taste-wise. Candi sugar, tart cherries, raisins, and plums follow. Some bitter dark chocolate and grapefruits present at the end. Piny. Kinda earthy. A little yeasty. The 9% ABV is nicely hidden.

Penso serimanente che questi pazzi potrebbero fare anche la gazzosa o la spuma, che verrebbe comunque originale. Perchè loro sono originali, come questa imp. IPA. Gran corpo è nonostante va giù che è un piacere...
