LENTE hop est un blonde houblonnée sous forme d’une IPA-ish, comme dit le brasseur. Malts pils et cara. Houblons premiant et saaz en premier houblonnage, columbus et cascade en tardifs. Le niveau abv est aussi de 6,2 %, pour un niveau plato de 14,9°. En EBU, nous sommes à 36. Mon exemplaire a été embouteillé le 27 février 2015, et se trouve à la moitié de sa vie optimale, selon le brasseur. Couleur doré moyen, avec un très léger voile de levure. Bulles par myriades, très fines, partout, très vives. Mousse blanche, bien épaisse, qui finit en nappage avec un peu d’accroche aux parois du verre. Arômes de malt clair, houblon très fin, fleurs de printemps, aubépine. 1ère bouche soyeuse, à la superbe entame malt/houblon, avec beaucoup de présence. Arrière-bouche fruitée, longue, avec une pointe de tabac sec. 2ème au fantastique ensemble malt/houblon/levure. Arrière-bouche avec quelques herbes, et du malt finement grillé. 3ème où la finesse est presqu’une mélodie. Arrière-bouche longue et parfaitement équilibrée. Longueur avec une harmonie grandiose. Jambes lisses mais marquées. Levure fine, précise, un rien épicée, très grande ligne. Alcool parfaitement efficace, il place l’amertume en haut lieu, et la maintient. Finale qui est un bonheur. CONCLUSION : une ipa de printemps (lente en ndlds), qui est d’un équilibre superbe, sans fausse note, et qui sent bon les fleurs à la lisière des bois au printemps.

Man this is the stuff! Poured at a perfect temperature with a massive billowy cream-colored head that settles slowly, with lots of clingy lace and a hazy honey amber color. Aroma is hops Graham mall. Flavor is like aroma just enough sweetness to balance the bitter and the strong carbonic tang. Perfect mall filling body but not over done. Super drinkable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl bottle shared with Dutchdrebus. Gusher. Hazy orange color with a big off-white to beige head. Smell malts, hops, lots of fruityness, grapefruit, fresh. Taste malts, hops, lovely fruityness, grapefruit, lovely bitterness. Great IPA from De Molen again!! Absolutely what an IPA should taste like.

Wow a surprisingly good IPA. It has a very rich and hoppy taste and it is a very nice bitter and fruity refreshment. I really like the hops.

Pours a cloudy amber with nice off white sticky head lacing the glass nicely and some suspended solids. Aromas of sweet mandarin orange and pale malt. Flavours consists of grapefruit bitterness, mandarin orange, floral notes and a light malty sweetness.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2013 Dobre i smaczne tresciwe IPA. Prosto od mlynskiego browaru. Wyglad piorunujacy jak zawsze u De Mollena. Piana wielka i trwala, spore wysycenie, wiec trzeba uwazac przy otwieraniu butelki. Zmetnieni spore ale nie za wielkie jak na ten browar. Goryczkowe i chmielne, zwlaszcza na finiszu.

33cl bottle @ home. Hazy orange copper color, strong long lasting creamy off-white head. Aroma citrus, grapefruit, apple pie, licorice, all moderated, strong hops, some grass and leaves. Taste light to medium sweetness, medium bitterness. Full body, quite refreshing, sticky texture, average carbonation, bitter finish with some sweetness. Very vell balanced easy IPA.

Bottle 33cl. Yellow, golden colour with a firm white top. Beer is a bit hazy. The dry hops are clearly present in the aroma which has also hints of orange peels and malts. The taste is beautifully balanced. At first mild bitter with a sweet undertone. Later on a perfectly balanced IPA bitterness kicks in. Great!

Cloudy orange colour, medium white head. Hoppy, citrus and piny at the end. Fresh and clean. Carbonation is very good. Nice IPA.
