corkyrory66 (2288) - BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2016
Double ipa de 8,4 % abv, avec malts clair et cara, houblonnée en polaris et simcoe.
Mon exemplaire était à 6 mois après sa date.
Couleur abricot foncé aux nuances auburn, avec un tout léger voile.
Bulles moyennes, peu nombreuses.
Mousse à flocons fins, nappante à 1 mm.
Arômes de fruits exotiques (fruit de la passion, mangue), mandarine, fleur de tilleul.
1ère bouche très souple à la superbe entame malt/fruits/houblon.
Arrière-bouche très équilibrée, complexe, longue, à l’amertume fruitée.
2ème au magnifique ensemble avec beaucoup de présence.
Arrière-bouche sur une amertume de grande qualité.
3ème avec une grande intégration de l’ensemble.
Arrière-bouche ample, complexe.
Longueur qui détaille le registre de l’amertume avec une superbe finesse.
Jambes marquées.
Levure fine, fruitée, ligne remarquable.
Alcool soft, il ne paraît pas son niveau, mais il est très efficace sur l’harmonie et les saveurs.
Finale en ut majeur.
CONCLUSION : on peut parler ici clairement de hop art, tant le travail est considérable sur l’ensemble. Autre fait majeur : malgré son âge avancé, mon exemplaire avait conservé toutes ses
qualités et sa présence. Assez rare pour une ipa, ce seul fait aide à convaincre pour donner la cote maximale à cette impériale.

sjogro (4885) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2016
Bottle at home, bought last week in Groningen. This should probably be ’retired’. Anyway, the hop is pretty dead in this one, bottle says "Best before 2015/A". Deep orange, almost clear, big yellowish beige head. Sweet toasted malts, hop ghosts (R.I.P.), oranges, licorice, caramel, sugar, alcohol. Big sweet, medium bitter. Full body, low carbonation. Heavy, oily, greasy and sweet, with a cheesy yeasty and biter finish. Well it is well over a year past its ’best before’ date, so I shall not bitch. Let’s just keep it at ’this is well past its prime’.

Idiosynkrasie (8065) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2016
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, reddish golden colour with huge, frothy, osteoporosing, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy aroma, notes of red berries, some orange and mandarine, caramel malty background. Taste is bitter hoppy, caramel malty basis with an almond touch, fruity notes of red berries, bitter zesty hints of orange and mandarine; lasting bitter finish, full body, prickling carbonation.

PotjeBier (3804) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2016
Bottle, kept way too long (bbe Q4 2015, enjoyed April 2016...). Nice copper/amber color, slightly hazy. Dense off white head with good retention. Aroma’s: somewhat malty sweet, light fruity, light herbal hops. Retronasal it’s hopbitter, malty, honey-ish, light herbal, light resin. Flavor is moderate bitter with a malty sweet backbone. Medium bodied. Finish is quite bitter. Should try this fresh sometime (if it’s still being brewed) but still very enjoyable.

ALIBALI (2613) - Kiel, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2016
Schwer. Malzig. Viel Hopfen. Harzig. Extrem. Daher auch nicht rund, sondern vielmehr zwischen den Stühlen. Gibt bessere DIPA/IIPAs. Sehr interessant ist hingegen die frostig/pfeffrige Frische die im Nachtrunk ausgezeichnet zur Geltung kommt. Vermutlich ists der Polarishopfen. Punktabzug für das unsagbar trashige Etikett ;) .... Kleine Flasche von VAN ERP aus Groningen 2,60Euro.

Beerhunter111 (22987) - P´Castle, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2015
33cl bottle. Pours hazy orange golden colour with a huge good lasting off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, zest, citrus, bitter hops. Taste of tropical fruits, intense hops, zeste, lemon, citrus, very good!

MichaelAwesome (6546) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2015
Wunderbar einfach zu trinken mit einer ebenso wunderbaren Fruchtigkeit und mehr als angenehm im Hopfen. Frisch und erfrischend, dabei durchaus vollmundig und dennoch so einfach zu zischen. Top.

McTapps (6976) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2015
Bottle from trade. The beer has got a deep hazy amber-golden colour with a small head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of hops, bread and citrus. Taste of hops, citrus, bread, amlt, barley, biscuits and herbs. Smooth and nice to drink, enjoyed it.

DwarfeD (3539) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Hazy orange with a medium white soapy head. Medium to full body with low to moderate carbonation. Medium bitterness with nice fruity sweetness. Pine, tropical fruits, citrus, honey and tangerine. Good bitter well balanced DIPA.

Zlotta (3984) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2015
0.33 l bottle from biernavigatie, best before end of 2015. Clear, orangeish amber with a huge, very creamy, stable, off-white head. Sweetish, fruity-resiny aroma of mango, orange, tangerine, honey and pine. Sweetish, fruity-resiny taste of mango, orange, tangerine, honey and pine, followed by a long, medium bitter finish. Medium to full body, very creamy and juicy mouthfeel, average carbonation. First of all, this beer look absolutely beautiful with this fine-pored, creamy and perfect head. The smell is what you’d expect from a DIPA (not really overwhelming though), but the taste is quite unique with that sweet and particularly juicy fruitiness. The balanced hoppy finish rounds it up perfectly. Very good!
