OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 7, 2013
750ml served in a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. A - 3 fingers of billowing foam that looks like an ice cream float. The head just sits and sits finally forming a sudsy cap. Loads of 1/4 " thick lacing. S - Bright hop aromas, lemon and mandarin citrus, melon, apples, floral, hints of lavender, fresh bread, T - Sweet malt upfront followed by citrus pith, grassy bittering hops, melon and lots of tropical fruit come through and compliment the sweet malt. A green grassy bitterness rides through mixing with a semi-powdery dryness on the finish. M - Medium body, medium carbonation, oily center, semi dry finish. I was expecting more of a Belgian IPA but this falls in the American category. Sweet malt but not too sweet. Lots of hop flavor and aroma with a decent amount of bitterness. Citrus really starts taking over as it warms. A solid IPA. Serving type: bottle 07-19-2012

2/3rd pint in a tulip at Brewdog Newcastle. Hazy brown with a thick white head. Citrus aroma, lovely thirstquenching grapefruit and biscuit flavour. Long finish.. Lovely beer

olsvammel (3066) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle from the shop in Bodegraven. It had a huge head. Fruity and hoppy on the nose. Similar taste with a yeasty aroma and note of earth cellar. Might have been a bit old.

jamestulloch (1395) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 10, 2012
Aroma: Tropical aroma of pineapple and lime. Light biscuity note.

Appearance: Cloudy amber body with a massive white head that holds well. Great lacing.

Taste: Grassy, caramel and sharp citrus flavours. Really hoppy. Delicious tangy lime on the finish.

Palate: Medium body with a foamy mouthfeel. Light carbonation tickle.

Overall: I’ve not had many De Molen beers, but this is easily the best one I’ve tasted. Very hoppy and full of citrus flavours.
