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!

Poured at a perfect temperature with a somewhat long-lasting had plenty of lace and a hazy too cloudy honey amber color. Aroma is fresh resin hop, wet grain, malt. flavor is like aroma not very complex but perfectly balanced between bitter sweet and tart for this kind of beer. Body is perfect. Very slight medicinal aftertaste in the finish

Fresh tap at Bir & Fud.
Nice amber color with small white head.
Smells very citrusy , grapefruit, orange, mango, and pineapple.
Taste is a litteral explosion of fruit in your mouth. Instant hit. Not substatially bitter though. Also, the alcohol doesnt come out ether, despite the high ABV.
Great beer.

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.

Hazy dark amber, poor white frothy head.
Really nice tropical smell, with lots of pineapple and mango, overripe orange, sweet floral notes, rich caramel, nice pine. By the book.
Straight up juicy pineapple, with sweet pink grapefruit, tangerine and a bit of sour lime. Hints of papaya and mango. Thick caramel maltiness, giving a nice sugared orange slice feel. Finishes with pine resin, a bit of dankness and bitter citrus peel.
Medium body, a bit sticky, medium fizz. Aftertaste is hoppy, sweet, citrusy, with a hint of tropical fruit still lingering around there.
A really solid imperial IPA, fits the profile nicely and actually entices you to get one more.

Coming in a 330ml slim brown bottle; BB 28/02/14, served lightly chilled in a GuldenDraak’s short-stemmed tulip-shaped sniffer.

A: pours a murky, dark orangey copper colour, coming with a creamy beige head with o.k. retention and very mild carbonation.
S: intensely sweet flowery, grapefruit-citric, sweet piney, candy-ish and honey-ish malty at the same time; a swirl gives rise to resinous hop perfume and sweet caramelised apples with a mild touch of ripe lychee shells.
T: mildly acidic-sweet upfront, intense and juicy on the pale malt side, followed by a resinous “bite” of bold & rich citric hops, plenty of lychee-shell-ish aromatic tannins, grapefruit-peel-like bitterness and a tangy touch of lightly toasted Chinese tea leaves. The lingering palate has a little… muddy-yeasty feel to it, but overall the rich hop flavour and a rather “clean” bitter palate dominate at the finish, where only a very mild feel of alcoholic warmth creeps down the throat by stealth.
M&O: rounded on the palate, very soft on carbonation, the body is full but never too rich or thick, while the hoppiness is executed at a level that complements the maltiness nicely without going oily. All in all, a well-crafted “Imperial IPA” designed to be enjoyed in quantity (to me!), this is a nicely drinkable example albeit ut not the most complex or colourful interpretation I’ve tried.
