Picked this up at a great little beer store in Arlon, Belgium, Miorge Mihoublon. Slightly hazy yellow-amber pour with a nice white two finger head with decent retention and nice lacing. The nose is huge with tons of juicy, citrusy, piney hops along with hints of tangerine, caramel, and a bit of grass. The taste follows suit with mouth-puckering grapefruit, resiny pine, tangerine, orange peel, caramel, and some subtle herbal notes on the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly fizzy with a nice oily, tangy finish. This is hugely drinkable for a 9.5 ABV IPA. And that subtle herbal thing it has going on definitely makes it stand out for me. Will definitely be picking up more of this one!

Copper with amber highlights and a cloudy complexion. A fingernail of off whit head is present on half of the top. Brussels lacing. Aroma is citrus hops with a hint of light malt. The flavor is full on citrus hops and is so tart and unbalanced that it comes off as artificial. The mouth is sticky and chewy.

Teku glass. Bottle. Aroma of citrus (orange, mandarin) sweet malty character noticable. Taste is at first malty and sweet, some hoppy flavours in the background. Medium sweet, soft carbonation, sticky texture. Aftertaste bitter. Little alcohol warming.

Pours amber with a large, white head.
Nose shows pine, grapefruit, biscuity malt and bready notes. Nice malt character.
Big malty and hoppy flavours. More sharp pine alongside lots of sweet clean malt.
Carbonation could be a bit higher.
Nice stuff.

A: The beer is very hazy yellowish orange in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin beige colored head that quickly died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of passion fruit and citrusy hops are present in the nose along with some notes of herbal hops and hints of malts.
T: The overall taste very much follows the smell and the hops contribute a moderate amount of bitterness. Notes of gooseberries are also noticeable from the Nelson Sauvin hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite drinkable considering its strength—you can tell that it’s a strong beer by the amount of underlying malts but you don't get any of the alcohol in the taste. It definitely lives up to its name because as the brewery says, you won't realize how strong this is until its 2Late! The hops didn't taste as fresh as some Imperial IPAs, but this could be attributable to the beer's voyage across the Atlantic Ocean.

330mL bottle from Slowbeer.

Amber orange, pretty clear with a rather anaemic off-white head that drops off to a collar.

Nose is very sweet and one dimensional, dominated by orange syrup in the vein of Sunny Boy ice-blocks. Baked caramel malts. Ethanol lurks. Not quite terrible, but really poor hop expression.

Immediate hot alcohol, which fails even to alleviate the fruit concentrate sweeteness. On the positive side, there is a welcome albeit insipid transition into pine and herbal bitterness that is an improvement on how it starts, but not a big one.

Hot, heavy and harsh. Could almost be passable if there was a good beer behind it, but alas no.

Totally unimpressed with this amateur effort. In this day and age a good IIPA has character in spades but also subtlety. This has neither.

Draught in Ma che siete venuti a fa (Rome) during December 2013.

Misty amber in colour with a white head that produced some good lacing.

It wasn't as hoppy as I expected for a Double IPA, although it was hoppy in nature. The hops giving a spicy, citrus feel to both the aroma and taste. Not too bitter and the depth of flavours hide the alcohol level very well. There was also a fresh, yeasty feel to the whole thing, which enhanced it's appeal.

A nice brew and I really enjoyed it.
