Impérial IPA d’un niveau abv de 9,3 % (mentionné 9,2 sur le site), pour un degré plato de 20 !! Mon exemplaire a été embouteillé le 22/4/2015, avant la décision du nouveau nom (Storm & Bliksem), et contenait encore en houblonnage du sladek, avec le saaz en amérisant, et l’amarillo bien sûr en dry hop. Les malts sont en pils et cara. Le niveau ebu est de 60. Couleur ambre moyen (23 ebc) à la clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonnes droites, vives. Mousse blanc un rien cassé, très épaisse, avec structure de blanc d’œuf battu en haut, stable à 8 mm. Arômes de malt cara, houblon fleuri mais aussi amer, agrumes, zeste d’orange, mangue, fine touche de lierre. 1ère bouche veloutée, au sublime ensemble malt/houblon/agrume/levure. Arrière-bouche avec une pointe de tabac blond d’une finesse ultime. 2ème aux nuances ultra-fines, et d’une harmonie extraordinaire. Arrière-bouche à l’équilibre divin. 3ème avec quelques nuances de cognac, feuilles de vigne. Arrière-bouche riche, longue. Longueur d’une densité énorme, qui n’empêche pas une finesse extrême, avec du chêne blanc entre autre, et une texture veloutée. Jambes fines, serrées, groupées. Levure fruitée, dense, superbe ligne. Alcool parfaitement progressif, et pas du tout étouffant, il fait un magnifique travail sur les saveurs. Finale, comment dire, parfaite … CONCLUSION : PRO-dit-Dieu, pardon, pro-di-gieux. Impérial ipa, et même il s’agit d’un vrai empereur … pas un Nabot ...

De Molen Amarillo has an extremely thick, creamy, cream-colored, frothy head, a hazy, orange-gold appearance, with numerous tight bubble stream, heavy lacing left behind, and a descending gray cloud, once the bottom contents are swished and poured into the glass. The aroma is strong and rich- hop oil, caramel, toffee, and white bread. Taste is equally bold- rich, sweet bread crust, bread, caramel, toffee, char, hop oil, bitterness, candi sugar, regular sugar, and a brandy aspect from the pronounced alcohol. Mouthfeel is heavy and oily, and De Molen Amarillo finishes mostly dry, super-sweet, alcohilic, and decently drinkable. This beer is exceptionally good and almost worth the over $6.00 a bottle that is charged for it. A great, great beer! RJT

BobyFischer (300) - FRANCE - OCT 16, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2014 Rare, très rare.Ce genre de réussite. DIPA qui cache son taux d’alcool.Qui cache son amertume, derrière ses arômes doux de clémentines, mandarines, pamplemousse, agrumes. Écorce, zeste d’orange amer en fin de bouche et très durable... sans être sec ni trop astringent. L’IPA "forte" parfaite.

I had it on tap outside brasserie 4:20 probably on of the best experience i’ve ever had. Intense aroma of hops, citrus and fruits. Complex taste, bitter bbut ok balanced. A long end.

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.

Magnificent imperial IPA, which have made De Molen. A style that is emerging within my pituitary gland. Yesterday I bought at Cervesa Mania Calella. Color orange, not yellow, slightly cloudy, with a white foam that quickly fades. The aroma hops especially contributes directly or grass and herbs. It emits a smell like fresh. It’s really al·lucinant.En mouth again wins all hops, caramel and spices. The bitterness is quite durable, all the way to the throat and beyond. Very pleasant to drink well equilibrada.Una masterpiece among imperial IPA.

Hazy orange with thin white head. Aroma of apricot, grapefruit and hops. Taste is very balanced between sweet and bitter. Hoppy, smooth, creamy. Fantastic IPA.
