A hazy dark golden beer with a huge yellowish head. The aroma has notes of fruits, lots of spices, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemons, limes, straw, and malt. A bit too sweet.

Solid head with aroma notes of pineapple, grapefruit, pine, and biscuit. Tasting notes of grapefruit, lime, resin, and long citrus bitter finish. Great IPA! Very automatic, and not outrageously bitter.

L: pours a bright hazy gold with a huge pillowy head, nice lacing.
S: the aroma is a big bright mix of pine, tropical and citrus fruits. Really inviting.
T: along the lines of the nose, not as huge, but a full flavour.
F: a reasonably light and easy feel, a lower bitterness and malt backbone to many recent IPAs.
O: after all these years it takes on a quintessential classic vibe. Many IPAs do more now, and some better, but this is a winning introduction to the style. A stayer worth visiting time and time again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33 l bottle from local Albert Heijn, best before 4/8/2016. Clear, golden yellow with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Fruity-resiny aroma of mango, tangerine, orange, honey and pine. Sweetish, fruity-resiny taste of mango, tangerine, honey and pine, followed by a short, slightly to medium bitter, grapefruity finish. Thin to medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Pleasant, highly drinkable and refreshing but not as intense as expected. Still good.

Godt humlet øl, der helt klart er en favorit blandt IPA’er. Der er meget aromahumle i med den gode lugt.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
After having the original one at 6% many years ago, lets see if this version is better. Light golden, mildly hazy, big white-yellow cap, long lasting with good creamy-patchy lacing. Fresh hop scent with citrus, grass notes and a little sweetness. The mouthfeel is a little dry, but not full, so the wetness that remains makes it go down nicely. The bitterness as well is not really crazy. The citrus taste blends well with the malts. A nice classic IPA that is refreshing and easy-going. Not sure if this has changed that much.
