L: -pours a cloudy amber with a small,frothy,white head -medium carbonation visible S: -oranges,tangerines,grapefruit,toaste malt,faint spices T: -oranges,tangerine,slightly grassy,toasty,finishes clean F: -medium carbonation -light,watery body O: For some Reason De Molen gave this dry-hopped Bitter a 2 yr shelf life. My Bottle was 20mts old and the hops had clearly faded. Fresh it’s probably great, but as it is it’s merely decent

Bawelt (100) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUL 21, 2015
Légère, agréable. Le houblon amarillo est décidemment un bon parti pour le houblonnage à sec. Manque éventuellement d’un peu de corps et de richesse aromatique pour être vraiment remarquable. Elle reste équilibrée et maîtrisée.

Gangstergafje (311) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 The beer has a beautiful orange color with a soft white foam head. The beer is very cloudy. The color is like an IPA or Pale Ale. The smell is really sweet and full of citrusy hop flavors of the Amarillo. The smell is really refreshing. Unfortunately the taste is less great. The citrusy sweetness of the Amarillo, which is clearly present in the smell, is almost not present in the taste. There is a lot of bitternes, almost to much. In the finish however there is a little of the citrusy sweetness of the Amarillo hops.

Hazy golden, lasting white head. Nose is peach, pine and tangerines. Body is light, carbon light, texture thin. Taste is bitter. Palate is fruity and hoppy. Fresh. Bitter aftertaste. B@Leerdam
