50cl brown bottle with a freshness date.

Hazy pale orange amber color, sufficient lacing for the style. Brash citric hop nose, dried grass and buttery yeast adds a different twist the to style. Smooth and little slick, medium bodied. Raw hop flavor with a mildly coarse bitterness that scrapes across the palate. Alcohol is warming and estery with rose water and dried tropical fruit. Faint buttery tone in the middle. Grainy with some mild biscuit and bread flavors. Dry, bitter and yeasty finish.

Not half bad though with all of the stellar examples of this style its hard to really cheer for this one, worth a try.

Pours creamy golden with generous short-lasting white head and lace dots accumulate in the glass. Rich hop and malt aroma, boozy too. Bit above averge mouthfeel with a very acceptable C_hop, understated..ageing may have served it well. Carbonation right there and suitable.
Nice 500 ml, expirey but a few weeks back. About average DIPA overall. Sent from Holland.

Bottle: Poured a hazy orangey/amber color ale with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of citrus and earthy hops is quite enjoyable. Taste is a great mix of citrus hoppy notes with light earthy notes with medium sweet caramel malt base. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad but maybe a tad too bitter with floral notes definitely lacking.

A hazy dark amber brew, an off-white head, little lacing, good curtains.

The smell is rather modest, hay, some yeast, fir needles.

Tasting of butter scotch, some grape-fruit peel and seeds.

Little carbonation, somewhat oily, a good body, a slight dry body.

This bottle was a bit tired. Hard to really judge the quality.

500ml bottle bought online from the Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam...

Poured a deep hazy amber red colour. Creamy head poured small but quite thick then faded very quickly to light wispy covering with thicker edging... no carbonation at all... some light lines of lacing...

Aroma - Lots of piney, peppery and grassy hops up front mixed with toasted caramel malts... lightly roasted nuts, spicy dried fruits (raisins, figs), light tobacco, some cardboard traces, toasted malty loaf, blood oranges, light liquorice, some wet hay...

Taste - Big blast of grassy and spicy hop bitterness, piney resin traces, overripe fruits (bitter oranges, apples, bananas), also some dried fruits (prunes, dates, raisins), warming alcohol, sweet caramel and toffee maltiness, lightly toasted malt loaf, some butterscotch, medicinal traces, light smokiness, soapy...

M&D - Fairly smooth and creamy with a little oiliness... full bodied... much too rich and full bodied to be very drinkable (not to mention the 9.2% alcohol)...

Overall - A very good DIPA if maybe a little rough round the edges... definitely worth a try though...

The colour is deep orange-amber with a hint of red. The high head sinks slowly to a thick warm pale brown lid, leaving lots of lacing.

The smell is not as hoppy as I had expected: Of course there are bitter notes and some citric flavours, but buttery and sweet flavours dominates. Hints of grapefruits, butterscotch and some alcohol. Not bad, but it smells more like an American barley wine than a DIPA.

The taste is bitter with citric notes of limes, grapefruits and bitter oranges. Some sweetness and buttery notes (butter, caramel) and a roasted note of rye bread. The aftertaste is bitter with an off flavour of sour milk. Some hoppy flavour of citric fruits and a long lasting note of butter. Salt in the finish.

The carbonation is medium strong; lots of small sharp bubbles. The liquid is smooth.

Not a very good DIPA. Too much butter, not enough hoppy bitterness.

Got a thick, dark brown colour with a low head. A little yeast on the bottom of the bottle.

HOP BOMB!
Huge hoparomas, really getting the 3 different hops used in the production. If you have ever made your own beer, this is the smell you get a few minutes in the boiling of hops.
Can sence a hint of sitrus as well as some malt.
But like I said, HOPS for everyone!!

This is a huge beer. For me, overwhelming and a few sips is enough.
The hoparomas is too dominating, not a very bitter beer but more on the sweetside.
So there is to many hoparomas going on, not very focused. But a different beer, no doubt!

Picked up at De Bierkoning in Amsterdam.

Poured into a tulip glass - noticed the hop flavor almost right away. Appearance is of caramel and the taste is well, delightful - the hops featured in this Double IPA have strong citrus notes, which grow into a lasting, dry aftertaste.

I don't see too many European brands copying Double IPAs yet - but this is definitely a strong effort.

A: The pour is hazy chestnut. The head is large, white creamy and stays for a long time before it dissipates leaving rich lacings.

S: Floral hops (american style), dry bitter hops. Caramell malts. Butter and a slight sweet sence from the malts. Faint citric notes.

T: Butter and caramell together with piny floral hops (american). Citric notes, pepper and some bitter hops.

M: Bitter aftertaste, a bit shorter than I hoped for. The body is medium to full and the carbonation is medium. The liquid is creamy.

D: A nice-tasting beer. A little more butter and a little less hops than I hoped for but still a nice beer. I'll buy it again...

Bottle@home

A: Amber/Reddish with a creamy head and lots of lacing.

S: Caramel, Butterscotch, Floral hops, Citric notes.

T: Caramel, Butterscotch, Grassy hops, Citric notes, Chocolate.

M: Initially quite sweet but ends with a overdose of bitterhops. Medium carbonation.

Caramel and bitterhops in one boozy mess. This needs dryhopping and lots mors taste and aromahops. Drinkable for what it is.

500ml into a pint

A - Pours a neutral brown color, somewhat thick, maybe a bit hazy. Strong head formation, dissipates quickly. Light amount of lacing as it breaks down.

S - A little bit of nutty malt is dominated by citrus, pine, resin, very assertive hop nose.

T - Starts off lightly malty, combined with the citrus. Mid-stream turns into a hop bomb, lots of citrus, zingy pine, lightly bitter. Finishes with more emphasis on the citrus - somewhat lemony flavors.

M - Solid body, huge amount of bite from all the hop oils. No alchohol bite detected.

O/D - A very solid IPA that certainly meets the specification of the American DIPA. Very worth of its DIPA label. Not overly filling, an easy drinking sipper.

Got this one in Norway, so I'm not sure this is available in the USA.
