Ysok02 (1265) - Mons, BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2016
Robe ambre, mousse peu abondante mais crmeuse. Nez plutit discret pour une imprial IPA, le malt se marque plus que le houblon, on retrouve des fruits exotiques, une pointe de mangue, mais un ensemble peu complexe. Lattaque de bouche est ample, pice, la bulle est crmeuse mais lensemble manque un peu de fracheur et damertume, la finale est longue mais surtout malte. Une bire agrable mais qui nvoque pas une IPA.

Douberd (5251) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2016
(Thiriez Dalva) Tap at Borefts. Orange coloured body, clear, with a small and thin off-white head on top, with average retention. Not as hoppy aroma as I expected, rather malty, with some heavy citrus afterwards. Taste is quite sweet, alcohol, malts light citrus. Medium thick body, good carbonation. Okay, maybe worth of another try.
