Frulertruler (114) - San Rafael, SPAIN - DEC 5, 2013
Ipa correcta destacando notas resinosas, con carbonatacion muy alta que hace que el lúpulo pique en paladar. Con final duradero a lúpulo pero no excesivamente seco que invita a seguir bebiendo

lusikka (6347) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Clear copper orange colour with a large white chunky head. Strong aroma of grass, caramel and some gooseberry bush. Flavour of caramel, biscuity malts, peach, gooseberries, pine and some lemon zest. Medium bodied, foamy mouthfeel and high carbonation. Much better than an average De Molen IPA flavour-wise, but still way too malty with disturbingly high carbonation.
