Excellent beer. Can't have too many of them. Aside being a double it will burn your palate out after one of them. Very strong but great flavor. A go to if you want ONE beer that's bitter.

L: A white 3” pillowy persistent foam collar sits atop a brilliant gold column laying a strip of lace on the glass to mark each drink. S: Fruit and grass aromas rise from the glass with traces of citrus and biscuit. T: Big malt backbone with some caramel notes supports layers of flavor beginning with a herbal bitterness, a layer of fruit and citrus, a more assertive pithy citrus bitter, followed by a blast of alcohol. There is more bitterness in the foam than in the body which changes the flavor profile through the course of the drink as the foam slowly collapsed into the body. F: Medium body and carbonation. O: The brewer balances bit malt, alcohol and hop flavors and bitterness to produce a beet that is scary easy to drink

A: cloudy; medium gold in color; 1 finger ivory head that receded to a wispy cap; very nice lacing;

S: the only way I can describe it is over ripe strawberries;

T: follows the nose; a little harsh from mid-palate through the finish; mildly bitter at the end, but the bitterness build after the swallow;

M: medium bodied; moderately carbonated; lightly dry finish;

O: a little too sweet for my taste and the strawberry character was a little odd for the style;

Weird flavors in this one. Doesn't taste like a double IPA, hard to explain. It's drinkable but somethings weird with this one.

Amber look, pours a thin foam that disappears quickly. Smells of malt.
Not strongly hoppy but strong in alcool, low carbonation.
It's pretty good, tastes like a belgian triple more than to a double IPA. 9.43% alcool, quite a lot!
Not my favourite, but I enjoyed it.
