pivnizub (9437) - Bochum, Porúří, - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle: Cloudy, deep golden with an orangey sheen, small, but stable creamy off-white head, solid grapefruity nose, some traces of herbal hops detectable; dry bitter flavour, relatively light bodied for a beer of 6.2%; dry lingering grapefruity-hoppy finish. Very good, but nearly a bit monotonous…

ChtiBreizh (217) - Rennes, FRANCE - AUG 30, 2015
Light blonde with big frothy sticky head. Citrusy hops, grassy, a little yeasty. Medium sweet with a bitter dry finish. Average carbonation, oily. Good refreshing pale ale.

SinH4 (1132) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2015
Hazy orange color with big white head. Dry bready malt aroma paired with a nice citrus fruits hopping, hints of some sweeter exotic fruits. Taste is fruity-sweet at first, then the bready malt body is present and a dry earthy-bitter finish. Very soft foamy mouthfeel. An IPA that still has the old world hop profile present, but it fits together.

Bottle. Pours a murky gold with a white head. Sweet, lightly spicy bread aroma. Medium body, full carbonation. Toast, light butter, grass, pine, bread dough, wood... OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamestulloch (2217) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 4, 2015
Bottle from Deeside Drinks Emporium. Hazy golden body with a thick off-white head. Steady carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of green mango, caramel and biscuit. Flavour of blood orange, grapefruit and wood. Medium body with an oily texture. Weak fizz. Not a hop bomb, but a well made, well balanced IPA.

Jimbo2 (49) - DENMARK - JUL 29, 2015
Beautiful and a typical De Molen-style IPA. Not that hoppy really, but balanced and with marked notes of fruit and quite complex.

MrOrla (928) - Odense C, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours hazy golden with a bubbly white head. Aroma of hops, malts, light sweetness, peach, tropical. Taste is grape, light peach, light malt sweetness, orange peel, notes of pine, some hops which I’m not familiar with, but works good in this beer. Bitter hoppy finish, which could use some dry hopburn. But all in all, the best IPA I’ve had from de molen.
