greenclansman (888) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - NOV 21, 2011
A very hoppy DIPA. Nice color with huge head that stays there for a long time. Grassy, hoppy, citrus aromas and tastes. I love its hops. Only bad thing was that the beer was super carbonated. I am sure it was not meant to be like this. Huge huge carbonation that made it difficult to drink at the beginning.

Az Amarillo olajosan csorog a kelyhekbe, és opálos narancs színnel csillog benne. A mega-adag komlónak köszönhetően a - majdnem fehér - habja, pedig olyan krémesen sűrű, mint a K.u.K idők békebeli cukrászdáinak bármelyikében a kézzel vert finom tejszínhab. A kitöltés közben már megcsapja az ember orrát a jellegzetes "ipás" illat. Azonban ez az illat messze nem olyan szúrós és nyers, mint megszoktuk az angol vagy amerikai IPA-k többségénél. Az Amarillo illata akár egy bódító szuperbólé. Kevés muskotályos szőlő, trópusi gyümölcsök - mangó és maracuja, - és legfőképpen intenzív sárgabarack. Elsőre ez az IPA is édes a nyelvünk hegyén, és gyümölcsös aromáit is megtáncoltatja az ínyünkön. A finom, elegáns szénsav cseppet sem szúrós, inkább csak pezsgősen jelenik meg a sörben. Mindezek mögött hallgatásba burkolózva, bölcs türelemmel, de ugrásra készen áll a komló nindzsa-harcosa. Amikor már elkápráztatott minket a gyümölcsorgia, hirtelen előugrik, és egy határozott gyors vágással el is intéz mindent, hogy aztán mintha ott se lett volna, újra átadja a helyét a gyümölcsök áradó kavalkádjának.Olyan rafináltan csomagolták be a gyümölcsösségbe a komló gyantás, olajos keserűjét, hogy ha nem figyelünk oda, néha azt hihetnénk valami könnyed barackos lambicet kortyolgatunk, nem egy brutál alkoholos, keserűbomba IPA-t.

olio (7512) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 13, 2011
75 cl bottle. No BBE info.
Pours hazy amber colour with a huge, white foamy head. Aroma of fresh hoppy fruits, mango, orange peel, mandarin, some floral notes, light caramel and mild grass. Some faint notes of glue-like alcohol on the background. Flavour of sweet caramelly fruits, citrus, mango, orange peel, light malts and some earth notes. Mild sweet palate with a crisp and bitter finish. Were it without the glue-like alcohol on the nose, this would be an excellent brew.

mile (3427) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle. Dark golden, hazy, very small and fully diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, tropical fruitiness and some caramel, lots of grapefruit and citrus hoppyness. Body is medium to full and sweetish flavor, some tropical fruitiness, caramel, grapefruit and piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and tropical fruitiness, lots of grapefruit and piney hoppyness which gets bit sharp/soapy, light alcohol. Really nice, but not great DIPA. Flavor is bit too sweet and has too much caramel for my taste - in the finish hoppyness is bit sharp.

75 cl. bottle @ Delirium Hoppy Loft – my friend had to quit after the first glass & I finished the rest of the bottle \ Pretty sure that this is only a couple of months old but I cannot be entirely sure because I have no idea as to how much time I need to deduct from the best before date \ Label is unfortunately not one of their minimalist ones which they seem to keep for their Imperial Stouts & anything sold only in 18 cl. bottles \ Cannot stop trying new De Molen beers, their work is insanely out there and nothing like anything else anyone makes out there to the best of my knowledge \ Half of the time, I declare them insane for making them, sometimes they disappoint but when they are good they are incredible \ Hazy, bright orange with a slight copper hue, head looks almost like something which you would expect to find on a lambic and eventually vanished after not too long \ The smell on this immediately betrays what this is, this is pure, ultra concentrated hop, this is simply liquid, condensed Amarillo hop, smell is very, very bitter grapefruit mixed in with very bitter pine & bitterest tangerine peels ever encountered \ Taste is bitter hop blast at first, enjoyable harsh bitter grapefruit which goes into the extreme to the point that it almost becomes herbal, very bitter herbal actually, touch of floral even, once your tongue becomes numb or you simply get used to it, it starts becoming fruity with apricot, peaches, lemons, you start getting a sweet malt-base buried underneath all the pure bitterness & a hint of yeast \ Medium carbonation, body is a bit like I would imagine hop oil to be but almost something sticky in there as well \ This is a pretty amazing pure hop experience, keep up the good work Molen

An excellent blend of sweetness and bitterness. The grapefruit/orange aroma comes off very strong but isn’t overwhelming and compliments its orange/gold appearance. Tried at the Troosts in Amsterdam in Sept, 2011.
