33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. My first beer as a new daddy. Here’s to you Dex! Could’ve gone for something big, but was too tired ;-) Clear golden amber colour, white head. Aroma of lots of hops, pine, grapefruit, citrus, some resin. Flavour is light to medium-sweet, honey, pine, resin, grapefruit, citrus, hint of grapes, smooth bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied. Nice IPA, resembles the Jack Hammer IPA a lot imho.

Bottle (Voodoo Doll). Great refreshing tropical fruits hoppiness in both nose and mouth. Not overly bitter, but manages a punch. ( or a Voodoo Doll pinch). In the end not too scary, though.

Medium sized creamy off white foamy head on top of an almost clear orange colored beer.

Flavours of resin, pine, pine needles, hop flowers, some citrus, light dry, light spice, nice bitter, sticky herbs, some hints of orange, peach and yeast with a barky edge.

330ml bottle from Brewdog online operations. This is the shit. What Brewdog do best (outside of the sometimes wonderful stouts). Pours clear gold, thin white head. Massive hop aromas- tropical fruit, grapefruit, mango, peach, pineapple, amazing. Touch of caramel/biscuit at the back there too. Damn. Good. They should make this all year round.

Sampled at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013 as Voodoo Doll. Almost clear golden with an off-white head. Quite strong citric aroma with pine and some caramel malt. Flavor is refreshing fruity, pine, some marmalade and rather bitter. Medium body and bitter, fruity aftertaste. Another fine IPA from Brewdog.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. 15cl sample. The aroma is strong hoppy has tropical fruits, some grass/hay/vegetable. Clear, copper coloured beer with a medium, white head. The taste is moderate bitter, perfect clean. Has some biscuity notes, but on the far background. The beer is dominated by hops and hops alone. Nice tropical fruits, but unfortunately also some vegetable tones I really don’t enjoy.

Thx! 330 ml. bottle sampled @ “Nog-een-half-jaar-tot-de-volgende-EBT”. Blond Christmas beers seem to be all the rage / the hip thing to do these days. Orange, little white head. Nose is sweetish sticky pine resin, peel, touch caramel malts. Taste is touch metallic, bitter orange, tad caramel base. Med. Body. Okay. Bottled on 01/10/2014.
