The beer pours in an amber orange color with a white head.

The aroma has a bright hoppiness of orange and pine.

The flavor follows with the tropical shining through of mango, citrus, orange peel, and then it moves onto a piney bitterenss. There's a light caramel sugary sweetness that balances the beer out.

A really pleasant surprise, although it comes with a price tag $6 for a 12 oz.

330ml bottle. Not a fan of this particular contract brewery's labels - artistic, sure, but at least put your bloody name on it! The Imperial nature is duly noted by the name - a nod to the pre-Christian Babylonian king.

This beer pours a hazy medium golden amber hue, with two pudgy fingers of puffy, fermenting white wine cap head, which leaves a pleasant array of dry sudsy lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of pungent grapefruit, orange, and pineapple fruit, edgy, yet mild enough Belgian yeast, silken pine resin, bready caramel malt, a touch of sugary toffee, and further perfumed floral hops. The taste is more somewhat musty mixed citrus and pine needle hops, tame earthy yeast, grainy, bready, and subdued caramel malt, a hint of warming alcohol, and softly perfumed hops. Simple, but generally heady.

The carbonation is present, but mostly laid-back and innocuous come game time, the body a sturdy medium weight, agreeably smooth given all those hops mucking about, and even a tad creamy. It finishes off-dry, the fruitiness of the hops and the lingering caramel malt forcing their way into the deepest recesses of my mind still.

Well, De Proef (I mean Omnipollo, of course) make a mean, almost slavish American DIPA, the only caveat being their insistence on having their house yeast make its mark. No big deal, but it's noticeable, and cute, for the one time I might actually drink this, given the single bottle cost and rather limited availability.

Pours a hazy amber with a one-finger white head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma hoppy, lots of pine resin with subtle citrus notes and faint maltiness. Bitterness up-front, mid palate and finish, a hop assault on your tongue! Balanced by a strong malt backbone. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Finishes dry. Overall, a strong bitter IPA, but not overpoweringly so. Very nice.

330ml bottle poured into tulip 27/10/13

A murky pale orange liquid with loads of the tiniest pin prick bubbles feeding a well retained massive three fingers of foam that leaves partial rings deep down the glass

S De Proef yeast is distinctive and I noticed it right away, sweet orange, tangerine, pineapple, floral and piney hops, some caramel and a hint of booze

T more yeast then the nose, the tropical flesh is a little rindy, vitamin C chewable, some brown sugar, and a little booze, not to far from the nose

M leaning towards full, pin prick bubbles give a creamy feel, quite gritty, a nice bitter snap, lingering yeasty citrus

O pretty solid DIPA, stereotypical even, perhaps a little faded but the hops are holding up nicely, the yeast it a little strong and perhaps holding it back

I was hoping for a little more but not bad at the end of the day, reminds me of a Mikkeller IPA, a few months old by the time it gets here, De Proef house notes, overpriced, and stops short of being great

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. Bottlecap indicates Best by date of 17/12/14.

A- Pours a semi-murky medium amber color with a 1/2 inch beige head that bears good retention time before eventually becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing streaks slowly down the glass.

S- Nice bright hop aroma that has an earthy undertone but mainly brings notes of grapefruit, pine and lemon. The malt adds a complementary sweetness.

T- Very smooth as the hops slowly creep in and only are at full force in the aftertaste. The malt takes a backseat to the hop bitterness and the alcohol is very well masked by the citrus notes. There is a metallic flavor that doesn't go unnoticed which I find to be common in these more rustic European IPAs.

M- Oily and a bit sharp from the hops but, once again, only in the afterbite. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- A very well-executed DIPA done in the neo-European style popularized by breweries like Mikkeller and Evil Twin.
