Bier Temple, Amsterdam. Bottle. Almost clear amber beer, big fluffy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and lightly crisp. Semi dry. Airy malts, trace of caramel. Hops are minty floral spice with a little dried orange. Light semi dry finish. More of a reasonably hopped amber than an out and out IPA.

maybe a little heavy on the crystal malt, this IPA is pleasant enough but a little on the boring side in the grand scheme of things. Sessionable, otherwise get the Yellow Wolf

mike_77 (3336) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2014
Copper colour. Quite a lot of fresh pale malts in the aroma. Taste is soft, smooth, low carbonation, easy to drink. Floral hop and a light bittersweet citrusy flavour. Well balanced.

Ipaluvr082 (60) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Great label, 650ml bottle. Slight haze, yellow amber with a very thin head. Not much on the nose, bread malt. Tastes watery, pine, resin, not much for fruit and citrus. Overall, disappointing given the other great IPA’s out of Portland.
