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. (619 characters)

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. (363 characters)

Purchased at the LCBO for around $7.00 or so for a 500ml bottle. Served at 5deg C in a tulip

A- Opens well and pours a tiny head as expected. Dark gold color and nearly filtered clear

S- Lots of hops and malt here. Tones of heat

T- Malt and hops. Way too much malt and sugar though.

F- Creamy good.

O- Not bad but will not buy again. Malt bomb

Food Pairing

This pretty good beer went ok with... Fish and chips. The beer overpowered it though

Enjoy (456 characters)

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. (361 characters)

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. (323 characters)

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... (1,119 characters)

500 ml bottle purchased from LCBO for $6.25 CDN. Interesting labelling with a bad-ass elephant with giant tusks on the front, reminds me of the Mumakil from Lord of the Rings. Served cold into a pint glass.

Appearance - Moderate pour yielded a thick syrupy beer with a very dark thick orange color and capped by a finger of dense off-white foam that was reminiscent of cream resting on top of a cappuccino. Good retention but minimal lacing

Smell - Sweet pineapple and mango dominates with a sickly sweet caramel malt in behind. An earthy grapefruit aroma lies underneath.

Taste - Starts a touch sweet with a the excessively sweet caramel malt then goes bitter with a resiny pine like flavor. Fruitiness picked up on the nose less prevalent here although the grapefruit certainly makes and appearance. Flavors are a bit one dimensional and transitions less than smooth. But yet after a few sips, I'm enjoying this more and more with every sip. It just works somehow. Booze comes through after a couple more sips though

Mouthfeel - A bit too syrupy and sticky with limp carbonation. Then goes to a mouth puckering dryness.

Overall - Not the most balanced beer, a bit too thick and syrupy and taste transitions are a bit forced, but this is still pretty good and easy enough to quaff. Probably echoing some other reviews here in that it's not that bad but there are many better made examples out there. (1,408 characters)

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. (877 characters)

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! (608 characters)

I haven't really had a bad IPA yet and this one is at least okay. I found it a bit too bitter but I don't think it's the hops, more likely it's the generous amount of citrus.
Still, it's a strong beer and worth a try, although a bit expensive for its quality. (260 characters)

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. (383 characters)
