10/06/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 14/10/2012 (2011-258)

Deep red orange to dark amber coloured beer under very creamy yellowish head that is very stable and leaves nice lacing. Aroma: very fruity, typical tropical fruits but also sweet yellow fruits like peaches and mango. MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: very fruity, bit sweet, citrus fruits providing some acidity, turning pretty bitter in the end. Aftertaste: more fruitiness, alcohol in the back of the throat while hop takes over the palate: the tongue turning very dry. Maybe a touch medicinal as with most strong IPAs.

Colour is brown and its a bit hazy. Has an off-white head, fully lasting. Aroma is clearly us-hoppy, citrus, grape-fruit, herbs. Flavor starts moderate sweet and bitter, finish heavy bitter. Dry texture and soft carbonation.

77ships (8509) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2012
33 cl. bottle sampled @ Delirium Hoppy Loft // amber with a tanned white head // smell is loaded with fruity pine & pomegranate hops with a touch of candy sugar & caramel sweetness rounding them off, still definitely American // taste isnt the instant blast of hops you expect, instead of slow start, touch sweet, caramel, candy sugar which blends into & moderates, fruity tangerine, pine, grapefruit, not quite a hop blast but very nice never the less / great idea, execution // one of the few & best American-style IIPA / IPA & the style in general in Belgium // medium, slightly caramel & hop body

Draft to taster. Looks good; a semi-transparent golden orange with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; hoppy and malty with an average mouthfeel. Solid beer.
