From tap at de Molen. Pours hazy orange with a small to medium white head laving nice lacing. Aroma is very fruity with grapefruit, mango, hops and some caramel. Aroma becomes a bit more grassy after while. Taste has red fruits, grapefruit and a nice medium bitter finish. Medium body and carbo. Wel balanced and very drinkable IPA, nice stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ de Molen, medium sample. Slight hazy amber color, medium head. Aroma of grassy hops, hint of caramel and rye, some citrus, bit flowery. Medium bitter in taste. To be honest, it’s a bit boring. It lacks some good hopkick or the great full flavor of some of their other IPAs. Mediocre.
