Skinnyviking (7062) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle at home. High creamy and lasting off-white head. Hazy orange body. Mild dusty straw sweet apples aroma. Sweet peach pear flavor with a good deal of alcohol as well. Strong note of juniper. Low carbonation. Long finish.

ShivanDragon (1579) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2014
Fantastisch, het flesje is werkelijk tot aan de dop gevuld ! schenkt in als een Barley Wine, wat stevig helder amber-rood met een wit/kaki kraag. al direct bij de eerste slok valt het zeer stevige volle romige mondgevoel op, dat was ook al af te leiden tijdens het schenken, stevig zoet, redelijk hopbitter, volle den en lichte grapefruit en citrus ondanks dat toch een medium body en is het toch niet zo’n goed bier als ik had gehoopt.

andrepintado (1424) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - MAY 22, 2014
33cl bottle. Color is dark orange. Head is quite thin and beige. Low carbonation which turns the body into a soft one. Also a bit oily. Finish is medium dry. Taste is high bitter and low sweet. Aroma is quite herby and hoppy, some fruits, light chocolate.

Temptation (224) - - MAY 20, 2014
Wow such a beet!! Great aromas which comprehend the whole range of hops: herbal, citrus, floral...all wrapped up in a caramel hug. The mouthfeel is equally rich and complex, lemony and dry, refreshing and highly enjoyable. Thank you, Menno: you did it again. You"re God.

Bottle from De Molen web shop. ABV 8%. Hazy dark orange brown color with medium light beige head. Grapefruit, grapefruit zest, oranges, pines in aroma. Solid malty base followed by nice portion of fruity hops with oranges, mango, tangerines, grapefruit zest, resin. Strong fruity, hoppy bitter finish. Enjoyable beer.

Habanero (2617) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2014
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy, pale amber with an average, lacing, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, lemon zest, oranges and piney notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and nice bitter. A very nice DIPA.

Maakun (589) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2014
Hazy dark amber with bright yellow creamy head. Caramel, lemon, very deep bitter pine. Later more perfume and flowers. Sweet malty and fruity with strong bitter kick at the end. Medium bodied average carbonation.

bieremoi (31) - FRANCE - MAY 10, 2014
Pours a blood orange cloudy color with off-white lasting head. Citrus hops with toffee. Absolutely delicious, lives up to its reputation.

goochflies (50) - Kaiserstuhl, SWITZERLAND - APR 28, 2014
Interesting IPA. Crisp and fruity aroma. Fizzy, tangy and bitter in the mouth. Like a fizzy overripe lemon. Good stuff

L_inconnu (64) - SWITZERLAND - APR 23, 2014
Une "classique De Molen" : une couleur qui correspond à ce qu’on attend, mais une mousse trop peu présente (sans parler de la densité bien évidemment). Mais une DIPA-ish qui annonce la couleur au nez (plus doucereuse que la plupart de ses comparses) mais bien équilibrée et qui laisse une belle rondeur en bouche.
