3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
