COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Specially brewed for the Ratebeer European Summer Gathering 2013 in The Netherlands. Organisation by Joes, Benzai, Martinus and Dutchdrebus. IPA / Orange Pale Ale brewed with El Dorado and Cascade.

Tevreden Oordeel is een zogenaamde Double IPA. India Pale Ale is een bierstijl die bekend staat om zijn hopgeur en smaak. Een double IPA is daar een sterkere variant van. Het is lastig om een goede Double IPA te maken, omdat de zoetheid van het sterkere bier vaak domineert en de hopsmaak en geur naar de achtergrond verdwijnen. Dankzij het gebruik van El Dorado hop denken wij hier desondanks bijzonder goed in geslaagd te zijn.

Bottle @ home. Deep orange/amber colour with a big beige head. Smells quite fruity, hoppy, fresh.. Just how I like this type of beer. Tastes quite bitter, fresh, quite hoppy, slightly fruity. Pretty straightforward but nice. Medium body, nice carbo. Great summer beer!

jmgreenuk (5015) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle at Rooie Dop, Utrecht at the RBESG 2013 opening night. Poured a slightly cloudy chestnut brown with a bubbly white head. The aroma is rich slightly alcoholic and a little fruity. The flavour is medium bitter with a little rich citrus fruit and some alcohol liqourice bitterness notes on the palate. A lovely heart warming beer, ideal for the summer and in front of a roaring fire too.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2013 Bottled @ Rooie Dop. Slight hazy amber color, short head. Aroma of soft hop, bit tropical fruit. Quite harsh on the bitterness and a bit thin in flavor. Should try and rerate this one as I drank it after a Ot the Explorer and it might not be doing the beer right. Will rerate. 3.0 Rerate: Slightly hazy amber to copper color, medium off-white head. Aroma has some chocolate and caramel in it from the malts. Soft hop, bit piney, tropical fruit, could have been a bit more. Cascade and El Dorado makes sense. Bitterness still feels too harsh and I would like to see some more sweetness from the malt to back it up. Quite dry in the finish. Bitterness lingers on. Guess there was nothing wrong with my tastebuds the first time, but I do up the score a bit.

RBESG ’13. Bottle at de Rooie Dop brewdungeon. Pours hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma of mandarin, some malts and other tropical fruits. Taste is a bit less fruity than the aroma with grapefruit, mandarin, mango and a quite bitter finish. A bit harsh actually. Medium body and carbonation. Quite a nice beer already, but the brewer said the next batch will be a bit more fruity and less bitter, which would be perfect.
