330ml bottle bought from Beermerchants.com
Poured a dark orange colour with a slight haze... White head poured big, thick and foamy and faded slowly to good thick layer... lots of sticky clingy lacing...
Aroma - Tart fruits to the fore (lemons, limes, grapefruits, sour apples) followed by piney hops, light honey sweetness, nice toastiness, grassy notes, earthy, light biscuit malts, some traces of basil and light coriander, the faintest hint of Belgian yeastiness, some floral traces...
Taste - Strong grapefruit and pine hop bitterness, lots of citrus notes, hint of orange and some apricot, quite grassy, faint sugary sweetness, peppery, quite herbal and earthy, fairly floral, alcohol just coming through at the end..
Feel - Quite sharp and dry. Light body. Very refreshing and drinkable - dangerously so at 8.0%..
Overall - An excellent Belgian take on the DIPA !! Highly recommended !!
