Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Crystal clear yellow-orange pour with a quickly fading one finger white head with minimal lacing. The nose is almost non-existent with some subtle tangerine notes along with a bit of grass and not much else. The taste is a bit more bold with a solid caramel malt base along with hints of orange zest, lemon, grass, and subtle pine. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit oily with medium carbonation and a nice tangy, bittersweet finish. Overall, this is far from a Double IPA by anyone's standards. It's barely an IPA at that. It's light and session-able but probably not worth re-visiting...

3.54/5  rDev +7.3%

Bright bronze with speckledy snowy flim.
Mashy, slightly citrusy nose with some tin.
Soft buttermilk biscuit malts with lemon boiled sweets hops with bits of resin and nectar.
Lt-med, soft, creamy.

Not a DIPA by any stretch – too pale, thin, and weak. Technically sound, but no magic here. There is better German craft.

3.07/5  rDev -7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Clear amber, off-white head, decent head retention, very little lacing.

S: Intense hops, floral and a little piny. Sweet and syrupy. Little fruit

T: Strong bitterness upfront, little but present hop flavours, similar to the smell. Not much sweetness, finishes with a strong hop bitterness, slightly resinous. Quite unbalanced in my opinion, not much of a malt backbone to hold up to the intense bitterness.

M: Average

O: Good looking DIPA, interesting hop aroma, a little bit out of balance in my opinion.

Oct review, exp Jan 2013

A: basically no rising carbonation, but a decent, 1.5 finger head. Transparent amber.
S: A cross between an IPA and a syrupy Belgian ale. Flower nectar. A bit sweet but also of a leather shoe
T: Half DIPA, half Belgian pale ale. There’s a funny sappy sweetness which I don’t love. Woody, feety. Okay.
M: a slight sting and a bit drying
O: Decent, but not my dream ipa
