A nice surprise, melon and mango flavor and aroma, big malt backbone with lots of sweetness, almost too much, I’d consider this more of a pale ale. Good beer.

Delicious aroma, pine and pineapple, in this classy beer. Very over the top but in a good way. Taste as usual not on the same level but very good.

Bottle. Pours a nice copper golden with a one finger white head and good lacing. Aroma is sweet berries, floral, and citrus, it smells complex. Tastes overly malted but the flavor itself is a pleasant potpourri. Not the best aftertaste I’ve experienced but the bitterness is there, like a bad cup of coffee. This one tries really hard and initially even gets you a bit excited, but in the end falls short in a couple areas.

mariuspoenari (1375) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2016
Bottle sampled at home. Bright orange with a medium-height white head. Mango, papaya, a bit of grapefruit but without the bitterness, herbal hops and a very nice honey backbone. Medium to full bodied, low carbonation and a bitter-sweet aftertaste.

Pine, flowers and notes of citrus on the aroma. Appearance has a large white head with great retention. Flavor has a similar hop profile as the aroma with the flower notes being dominant. Malt has notes of caramel and biscuit. Bitterness has a slight harsh character. Mouthfeel is medium with a medium carbonation. Overall, it's a great classic IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From memory on a recent trip to Northern California. Good balance of citrus and pine. Juicy taste. I had a couple and enjoyed it very much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Batavi (346) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2016
Tijdens proeverij, uitgeschonken in een proefglas. Goudgeel/ licht koperkleurig, helder met een medium hoge witte schuimkraag. Veel hoppige dennen aroma’s en verder gebalanceerd met tonen van fruit als sinaasappel, mango, papaya en zoete notities van honing en vanille. Het smaakpallet is hopbitter met fruitige en florale tonen van dennen, sinaasappels, mango en papaya. De afdronk is droog aangenaam bitter. Mooie Amerikaanse IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light copper, some suspended particulates and haze. Floral citrus, mango, apple, sweet caramel, vanilla aroma. Nicely balanced, light biscuit wafer, citrus, apple, honey in taste, some banana esthers. Refreshing mouthfeel, lightly bittered, juicy and mildy drying.
