Oranje nevelig bier met zeer kleine witte schuimkraag. Aroma van citrushop, honing en abrikoos. Bitter en behoorlijk zoet. Erg zacht. Lekker.

CanCrusher (854) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAY 16, 2016
Bottle 0,33L. Courtesy of Kita. Clear orange color with huge, fully lasting, rocky, off-white head, that leaves excellent lacing. Aroma is on the hoppy side - orange (dominate), peach, pineapple... Taste starts medium bitter with liquor, tropical fruit, grapefruit, peach, some caramel, some dried fruits and finished slightly fruity. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Excellent brew from De Molen!

Shark_Pants (565) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2016
Bottled 22 May 2015. Quite cloudy amber colour with small off-white head that disappears quickly. Bready malt aroma, with floral honey and characteristic apricot and citrus amarillo notes. The taste has a lot of sweet caramel malt, tangerine, grapefruit and big apricot. Strong sweetness balanced somewhat by the lingering fruity hop bitterness. Full bodied and sticky, like a hop nectar. Very big and tasty, but more rounded than some more aggressive examples.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

jakubwloszcz (66) - Piastów, POLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Barwa bursztynowa, lekko zamglona. Piana, jak na moc tego piwa, jest bardzo obfita, pięknie się prezentuje i oblepia szkło. Aromat dojrzałych owoców, karmelu, cytrusów, mango, czuć też lekką nutę alkoholową. W smaku jest dość słodkie, dominują nuty owoców tropikalnych i karmelu. Średnie wysycenie, piwo trochę leżakowało, więc alkohol jest znakomicie ułożony. Goryczka średnia, zostaje długi owocowy posmak.

jookos (5019) - FINLAND - MAY 11, 2016
Tap@1pp as amarillo iipa. Coppery clear. Old malty, bit old socky nose. Ripe fruits, but feels just terrible badly kept. Fullish bodied, smooth nice soft, sweet malty, good soft but sturdy bitters. Ripe stone fruits in flavour, pine, caramels. Flavour is okish, a bit too thick caramels for my flavour still. Lotsa flavours tho.

Muggus69 (1900) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 22/05/17 Deep orange gold body, dense white head. Hop driven aroma - bitter orange, cut grass, toasty malts, biscuit, caramel malts in support. Slick texture, big, somewhat rich, smooth carbonation. Bitter citrus hops continue on the body - marmaladey, grapefruit, pine sap, slightly herbal, sweet biscuity malts & caramels. Firm lingering bitterness, warmning finish. Enjoyable IIPA

mariuspoenari (1095) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2016
Sampled at Lentebierfestiv 2016 in The Hague. Clear amber with a medium height white head. Malty sweet and medium to full bodied with notes of pine and citrus hops, as well as unripe mango. Very well done, one of those well made malt-forward IIPAs.
