3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent IPA with the usual fruity notes of hops. Bit grassy as well. Nice, but the Molen has better IPA’s, I don’t understand what extra value this one has for them.

Very balanced IPA with a caramel malt aroma, and some citric aroma’s. Not really bitter or sweet, just a balanced well made, not too interesting beer.
