3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle with great thnx to Deanso .
Pours rather clear amberblonde . Good, but fast fading white head .
Smell is bitter, green , bit harsh, some dry sugar ( not sweet )
Taste is green , bitter . Harshness is remaining, as well as the dry sugar component . Bit vegetable / spicy hopped . Weird .. really dont know what to think here . Not my taste , yet it feels legit ( not a failed brew ) . Perhaps this was brewed more after what a classic, historical IPA was like ?
I more like US , aromatic IPA’s though

Glass 25 cl, at Lemmy’s Leiden. Pours orange with a small white head and an aroma of orange, fresh fruits, bitter hops and sweet spices. The taste is mildly sweet and moderately bitter, with a longlasting and heavily bitter finish. Really nice beer!

fles lijkt erg op de ABC Konings IPA, echter nu met extra hopbel op de voorkant.
amber helder met schuimige witte kraag, citrus aroma met wat kruiden en hoppen, smaken zijn matig zoet, bittertje matig fruitig (grapefruit en den), medium body, glad van textuur, ook deze blinkt niet uit in smaak.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Stubby bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.5%. The label is similar to the first one, only there are now two hops and of course different dates etc.
Deep copper orange colour, crystal clear body. Two fingers of off-white head, with good retention, especially after collapsing to one third of its initial size. Medium thick lacing with spot every here and there around the glass.
Much more aromatic from the first one, with notable hop aromas, cookie dough.
Taste begins with malts and a sweetness that lasts only for a moment, before it turns to moderate bitter, quite hoppy, with mandarines, a touch of citrus, cookie dough, grapefruit. Much more bitter on the aftertaste, with long duration.
Medium body, good carbonation, mildly dry palate.
Overall a big improvement from the first one, more than good and with high drinkability.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Last beer in The Hague. Deep nice amber with a think, bubbly, sticky, lacy, off-white head that settles to a soapy ring. Smells of lemon zest, earthy hops, sweet toasted malt and caramel. Medium to full oily body with soft carbonation. Sweet taste of malt on a dry body filled with flowers, grass, and a zesty lingering citrus finish. Bitter. Moderately sweet and very bitter. Enjoyable but a bit disbalanced.

Bottle: Thanks Dean: Sered in a Chouffe glass:
Medium sized white foamy head on top of a clear orange colored beer.
Aromas of smooth floral tones, some vanilla, some herbs, light peach ish tones, some very very light creamy pine and citrus that lean towards glue but luckily is not. Quite floral and creamy.
Flavours of bitters, herbs, banana, citrus, plants, grass, some yeast, spice, hay, some sharper hops, sharper grass. Good bitter and pretty herbal.
Aftertaste is herbal, good bitter, some plant ish tones and grass.
Low carbo, creamy spicy mouthfeel, medium to a little more fuller body and a creamy to light watery texture. Good bitter, floral aroma, herbal taste. Nice beer, but just some more hops would be nice(r).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Birthday present from my sister; thanks. :-) Full 33cl sample. The aroma has biscuity malts, honey, faint citric hoppy notes. Clear, copper coloured with an off-white head. The taste is moderate bitter and it lingers. Nice dry bitterness. Quite some maltiness there still, some grass, little citric. Medium bodied. Bitterness is there, but really lacking hop aromas. Malt profile is nice, yeast is clean. Just give this beer some dry hopping and it would be really a nice one.
