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.

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.

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.
