Nice Dutch IPA! More than just bitterness. Pleasant floral and fruit notes and Belgian yeast flavors. It starts fresh and slightly sweet and goes to a long bitter finish. It would be better if the alcohol was less present. It is only 7, 5% but you would guess it is stronger.

Trappist1 (361) - Diest, BELGIUM - APR 7, 2014
Dark orange color, thick full off-white head. Nose: malts (bit unfresh), some hops but less than what you would expect. Some spices (coriander?), overall, this nose disappoints. Taste: malt, spices, hop, pretty straight forward. Some slight hop bitterness, soft body, almost creamy MF. Overall, not the "hopla" you would expect. feels like an average beer, but nothing great or new here. Would not call this an IPA.

rikstar (565) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 30, 2014
0,33l fles van het fust in hoorn. Amber kleurig met een mooie en stabiele witte schuimkraag. Aroma met veel tropisch fruit. Smaak is erg zoet en fruitig, appel en meloen, ook citrus en perzik. bittertje is meer op de achtergrond, door de overdaad van fruit. Mondgevoel is mooi vol, afdronk medium.

rlgk (9492) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle, thanks to Douberd! Somewhat hazy golden/apricot color with a rich lasting offwhite head. Hoppy grassy flavor, herbal, quite bitter, citrus, some alcohol. Hoppy floral flavor, citrus, grapefruit, again with alcohol coming through. Decent but a bit too much alcohol.

Balazs (750) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle from ABCBeers. Poured cloudy, with an orange copper color and a thick, creamy white head. Delicious aroma dominated by hops, grapefruit, pine resin, hints of hay, caramel, apple. Well balanced. Definitely my style, loving this one.

Nice aroma of fruits and hops. Some spices too. Satisfactory bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice IPA, will drink again.

Beerhunter111 (5636) - Hasborn, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2014
Many thanks to Douberd for this beer. Bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr hopfig fruchtig. Geschmack malzig würzig, sehr fruchtig herb.

MichaelAwesome (3017) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2014
A really interesting one. Starting off with big hops and some sweetish vanilla moments this one ends unpleasantly bitter. A bit too big in the carbo combined with a nice look make that one interesting - and unbalanced.

McTapps (3018) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle from Douberd - many thanks, Christos! The beer pours out in a hazy, dirty amber colour with low head and medium body. Nice aroma of fresh hops and grass. Taste of fresh hops, grass, citrus, straw, oranges, thyme and spices. Huge dry bitterness in the finish. Nice to drink, very tasty and quaffable indeed.

Mild blumiger Antrunk, angenehme Bitterkeit. Geringe Fruchtigkeit, die Bitterkeit bleibt konstant, helle Getreidenoten. Dann deutlich fruchtiger werdend, rund, gut. 12/12/11/11/7/11
