500ml bottle. Pours hazy orange-golden color with medium white head. Strong aroma of elder and grapefruit. Very hoppy, fruity, bitter flavor with dry, bitter and slightly fruity aftertaste. Smooth, well balanced beer. Although it is an imperial IPA, the presence of alcohol is well hidden.

Erg licht en helder. Vrij weinig geur. Erg bitter, wel goed op dit moment. Lekker.

jamaty (2098) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 10, 2017
Amarillenta turbia de espuma blanca, densa. Aspecto de witbier. Lpulo en el aroma, resinoso, herbal. Bien de gas, amargor intenso en boca, desde el principio y sobre todo al final, muy seco. Ctrica, pomelo marcado, notas de uva y algo de fruta tropical. Realmente seca y realmente amarga. como cabe esperar de una Imperial IPA.

bjorn77 (186) - Krakw, POLAND - APR 8, 2017
Aromat: intensywny,świeży, cytrusy i trochę żywicy. Jasnozłote, przejrzyste, piana niewielka. Smak: wytrawne, dosyć ciężka podstawa piwa, czuć że konkretne, słodyczy niewiele,owoce tropikalne w tle, spora goryczka grejpfrutowa i sosnowa, chwilkę zalegająca. Słodycz lekka, od słodkich cytrusw, nie zamulająca, piwo orzeźwiające i pijalne, wysycenie wysokie, bardzo dobry balans. Dobra Imperial IPA

vincentvega72 (617) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2017
Mooi goudblond licht troebel bier met parelende witte schuimkraag die langzaamaan inzakt tot fijn laagje. Zeer veel citrus in de neus. Verder hooi, hop, gerst. Smaken van citroen, limoen, ananas, beetje druif. Goeie hopbitterheid, licht harsig. Licht gistig, zowel in de neus als in de mond. Prima ipa.

angel77 (3105) - oviedo, SPAIN - APR 2, 2017
UPDATED: APR 2, 2017 Caa en el lupulo Oviedo 02..04..2017. (r668). Color amarillento transparente dorado con espuma blanca. Sabores suaves maltosos dulces bastante afrutados con toques finales herbaceos secos algo resinosos que dejan suave amargo. Ligeras levaduras. Cuerpo ligero a medio algo lquido y fcil de beber. No est mal de podra repetir.

Kiebab (14) - Braniewo, POLAND - MAR 24, 2017
Bottle at home. White quickly disappearing head leaving nice lacing. Golden pale and bit hazy in colour. Aromas of oranges, grapefruits and melon mixing with lemons and grapefruit in flavour. This beer is really dry but bitterness compensating lack of sweet notes in it. Overall very drinkable beer, one of the best double IPAs/Imperial IPAs ever had.

Davros IX (129) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Bottle at home. A very nice double IPA that firmly sits on the bitter side of this beer type. A taste of citrus peel and pine that gave a very pleasing drinking experience. It had a strong mouthfeel and richness and a low level of carbonation. This is a beer that is complemented by food and a world a way from the sweet and fruity double IPAs from other brewers.

tricksta_p (4227) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2017
Bottle from Speciaalbierpakket. Aroma is fruity hops, lots of citrus, notes of stone fruits, tropical, soft pale malt, light pine with a mild touch of floral. Flavour is light sweet with a bitter finish. Medium bodied. Lovely fruity IPA, good balance and tons of citrus.

Towey1989 (2459) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2017
Bottle at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) Pours a clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of lemongrass, orange, grapefruit, some melon, slight marijuana/grass, a hint of pale malts and subtle herbal hops. Taste of lemon, orange, grapefruit, some melon, pine, slight grass, a little caramel, a hint of straw and subtle herbal hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A dry, slightly dank, citrus and herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Another superb, hoppy pale from thornbridge. Lots of citrus and grassy, herbal hop bitterness with a good balance of sweet malts and subtle fruit. It isnt the most complex strong IPA but as expected, so well made. Very enjoyable.
