Can. Pours hazy reddish copper with a small beige head. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, orange peel, and dough and sugar. The flavor is bitter citrus peel, grapefruit and orange pith, and light doughy malt to balance. Good. [1142]

Abijen (1416) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
Pours a golden orange unclear beer with a good white head. Smells fruity, hops. Bit sweet. Tastes the same. also malts and quite bitter. Average carbo, thin body and a dry texture.

Alengrin (873) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
IPA with Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe. Yellowish white, stable head, hazy amber colour. Aroma of lemon zest, orange, green apple and lots of citrussy, green hops, dry-hopped. Taste begins with a subdued fruitiness, bit of caramelly malts, gradually becoming more hoppy and ending in a very green, herbal, peppery hop bitterness that sticks for quite a long time. Nice example of its style.

77ships (3681) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2014
Sampled @ Gents Bierfestival 2014. 355 ml. can. Spare creamy off-white head, quickly gone. Cloudy orange. Fruity quite bitter citrus hop, citrus, grapefruit, faint grass,… Taste is bitter citrus peel, straw, hay, light pine, allspice, very bitter resin, peel, citrus hop finish, strong bitter citrus, focus is heavily on bitterness. Full bodied. Focus feels very heavily on strongly bitterness with to balance it. Good for what it is but less my preference.

JorisPPattyn (7877) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2014
No head left, clear darker amber-orange beer; some lace. Fruity, citrussy nose, hop, and a bit of caramel; summer grain. Bitter, citruspeel, but in delayed action - at first nothing! A tad of lightly toasted malts, but not much. Slick, oily, if not really well-bodied. Well, OK. Certainly.

Amber coloured brew with a nice big good holding head. Pine, grass and earthy. Overripe fruits. OK.

stevoj (2067) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 14, 2014
A nice biting IPA, but with a touch of a sweet finish. Pours clear amber with a nice robust creamy head. Aroma is complex, sweet malt, honey, toffee, caramel, no sign of the hops that are to come. Taste comes in with a nice malt flavor, hos riding the wave on to the taste buds at the finish. Enjoyable throughout.
