3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
25 cl. can @ home, bought online @ Biernavigatie.nl
Hazy amber with an off-white head. can was a gusher even though I didn’t shake it or anything. Aroma of tropical fruits and some malts.
Taste is IPA bitter and the mouthfeel is creamy. Most IPA’s are all about the hops but this one also has a solid malt base. Finish is dry.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl Can from De Bierkoning. Slightly hazy orang colour, white head. Lovely aroma of tropical fruits, resin, oranges, caramel, sweet and hoppy. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, caramel, mostly fruity though, orange, citrus, tropical fruit like mango, resin, nice but mellow bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied, soft but suitable carbonation. Really nice IPA IMHO.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a decent IPA but not really a standout. It’s a bright orange color with a foamy white head of mixed bubbles. It smells of sweet orange peel and woody pine. It is on the thick side for the style and overall has a sweet juiciness which is not entirely unpleasant. It finishes with a sticky resinous bitterness and some lingering honey-like sweetness. This stuff is good enough but I don’t see myself seeking out this again.

A hazed golden amber ipa with a thick frothy off white head. In aroma, nice caramel malt with nice floral hops, grapefruit pulp, classic and resinous. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity caramel malt with light floral hops, pink grapefruit, light treacle, pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little darker and maltier in what I like for an IPA. The malts really shine with the hops. I would prefer the hops to completely takeover otherwise I am expecting a stronger pale ale.
