Double IPA from Belgium, 'Outrageously hopped, disturbingly taste.

Orange-brown, murky with a creamy beige head.
Big aroma of citrus, apricots, pine. Taste is a bit sweet, and a lot bitter.
Aftertaste is strong bitterness, perhaps a bit harsh. At 8,5%abv the alcohol is hardly noticable, but the stuff leaves a warmth that's nice.
Overall, this beer is a very decent IPA, in my experience. It's bitter and powerfull like they are, with the usual hops. Worth a try.

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface, a thick collar, and lots of lacing coating the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of floral, herbal, and citrusy hops are present in the nose along with notes of Belgian yeast and hints of caramel malts.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts out with flavors of herbal and citrusy hops, which contributes a moderate amount of bitterness that lingers through the finish along with notes of Belgian yeast and some hints of grapefruit hops and caramel malts. The citrus flavors and bitterness in the finish become stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has lots of complexities in the smell and taste and has a lot of interplay between the hops, yeast, and malts. It's also rather drinkable as any traces of alcohol are well hidden from the taste.

Picked this up at a great little beer store in Arlon, Belgium, Miorge Mihoublon. Cloudy yellow-orange pour with a huge meringue-like white head with crazy retention and lacing. The nose is somewhat subdued, but quite nice. Hints of fresh picked floral hops, orange Creamsicle, grapefruit, grass, caramel, and subtle vanilla. The taste is sweet and fruity upfront with a tangy fresh hop finish. Getting really big orange Creamsicle notes along with flowery fresh hops, grapefruit, grass, lemon, caramel, brown sugar, and a nice herbal character. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly creamy, with perfect balance and over the top drinkability. Overall, this is a really unique IPA that I absolutely loved. Extremely fresh and balanced and hugely drinkable!

An orange colored beer with a big frothy head. The head clings nicely to the glass.

The smell has a distinct fruity and citrus hoppiness, a American hoppy smell. The hops determine the smell, the malt is sweet but only supporting.

The taste is a wonderfull mix of fruity hops, Amarillo, Simcoe, At least US hops. The beer is quite bitter, but not mouthpuckering. The beer is balanced, it's mouthfeel is a little sweet and slightly sticky, just enough to balance the hops. The aftertaste is long and lingering.

22.4 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/2015. Pours hazy bright orange color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, peppercorn, light caramel, bread, floral, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, peppercorn, light caramel, bread, floral, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of peppery yeast spice and pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate malt flavors; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, sticky, and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome Belgian DIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of big citrus/pine hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the the ABV. Very big on bright hop flavors with supporting malt and yeast notes all around. A highly enjoyable offering.

Yellow, cloudy.
Head white, large.
Intensely fruity aroma, mainly peach, passion fruit, mango, there is also a little carrot, honey and a bit dusty grass.
Taste brilliant. Again, fruits, but this time even more intense. Mango with his carrot sweetness, later passion fruit with his citrus acidity, honey, this time more gently, and at the end of bitterness, dry, grassy, ​​dusty. In Extase we have 8.5% alcohol, which is pretty good. To sum up, a very tasty beer, consistent aroma and flavor, with a strong bitterness, intense. Yes ... it was ecstasy.

Got this at the liquor store down the road.

From a bomber into a snifter
Best Before April 2014
The brewer calls this a Double IPA and not a Belgian IPA.

APPEARANCE: Pours a two finger, thicker looking, fluffy white head with great retention. Head slowly fades to a foamy cap and clings to the sides. Cloudy gamboge orange with medium levels of carbonation. A half wisp remains and leaves some decent lacing down the glass. Good looking for sure.

SMELL: Mild nose of pale malts, some grassy aromas, hints of lemon and grapefruit, as well as some floral aromas. Nice, but a little mild.

TASTE: Pale and caramel sweetness up front, then some grassy and floral flavors into a bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit and lemon citrus flavors are a little overshadowed by the floral hop bitterness. A touch of spicy alcohol lingers as well.

PALATE: Medium body and medium carbonation. Creamy enough on the palate, goes down fine and finishes slightly dry. A bitter bite and some alcohol linger.

OVERALL: The nose was a little mild and the flavor a little bitter for the sake of being bitter, but this was still a refreshing and enjoyable beer. Enough good flavor in there to make it worth while, and a beauty to look at as well. Yet another good beer from De Dochter. Well worth checking out if you get a chance. Recommended.

Lovely pour, and lots of yeast, some fruit and a bit of funk in the nose. Sweet and slightly bitter/sour on finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thinner than I would expect. Enjoyable for the holidays (or anytime for that matter).

4.1/5  rDev +4.1%

Shiny dark orange, a bit hazy, two finger fluffy white head that recedes to a thick cap and lots of messy traces and lacing on the glass.
Smell of peach, nectarines, sweet pineapple. some apricot and faint mango. A funky yeastiness with herbs, some floral honey, black pepper and (weirdly) faint moldy cheese (something like Camembert/Brie crust).
A nice fruity sweetness dominates the front, mostly with peach, apricot and cherry plums, but there's also honey. Gets bitter with some grapefruit, a bit of citrus sourness too, and then the yeasts take over, with lots of funky herbs, raw grain and spices (faint coriander, black and white pepper, lemongrass, faint anise) with a pronounced grass/straw note, even bigger because of the hops. Ends quite dry and bitter.
Medium body, prickly, if not a bit too much, carbonation. Long funky aftertaste with a big dose of green hops. Fruit is felt with each new sip, but after some time the bitterness kinda cancels it all out (including the alcohol, even the spices).
A great funky, spicy IPA, with that special note that Dochter van de Korenaar beers have.
