Abijen (2258) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, - JUN 8, 2014
Pours an orange slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells fruity, hops. Tastes the same. Not very much tastes. Average carbo, thin body and a dry texture.

Poured in whine glas, looks unfiltered and has a strong fresh citric aroma. A sharp bitterness yet balanced. The grapefruity flavor stayes in the mouth for a long time. Fresh summery beer.

330ml bottle from Beer52:
Excellent stuff from De Molen, more like an American IPA than pale ale in places but full of tropical fruits & nice caramel/biscuit sweetness too. Easy to drink with a good balance; definitely one that I’d have again.

Douberd (4013) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2016
(De Molen Hop & Liefde) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 4.8% Deep orange colour on the body, mostly clear, with lots of activity in it. Huge frothy white head on top, with good retention. Aroma of caramel malts, oranges, light tangerine. Taste follows, oranges, citrus, tangerine, little bit of bitterness on the finish. Medium thin body, high carbonation. Decent.

vincentvega72 (222) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2016
Mooi troebel oranjekleurig bier met mooie witte schuimkraag. Exotisch aroma. Ananas, perzik, mango, passievrucht, meloen. Lekkere fruitig-bittere smaak. Ondanks de 4,8 % abv toch vol smaak. Enige minpuntje is de afdronk, die is wat flauw. Voor de rest is dit een topbiertje.

Maarten1993 (702) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2016
Drank with Kaspar during one of the most epic nights of my life 15-1-2015. Okay, fresh IPA, quite harsh sometimes, lot of carbonation. Hoppy taste is pleasant.

Fantastic ipa, exactly right bitter and fruity tone mix, close to perfect ipa

corkyrory66 (1121) - BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2016
Bière présentée par le brasseur en pale ale, mais elle est davantage une american pale ale. Niveau abv de 4,8 %, pour 11,4° plato, et ebu de 57. Malts pale et cara. Houblonnage citra en bitter et en dry hop. Mon exemplaire avait 3 mois de plus, jour pour jour, que l’année préconisée, mais comme on le verra, il se portait très bien …. Couleur ambre rouquin (ebc de 20), à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, en colonnes, vives. Mousse blanc cassé crémeuse, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de malt, houblon très fin, pamplemousse, zeste d’orange, pointe d’ananas. 1ère bouche soyeuse, à la très grande entame malt/houblon, et des fleurs blanches. Arrière-bouche merveilleusement équilibrée et amère. 2ème au houblon bien net, ciselé, et un malt pâle. Arrière-bouche qui détaille les deux. 3ème avec des nuances, des couleurs, des agrumes. Arrière-bouche bien nette, précise. Longueur au très beau houblon vif, net. Jambes fines, serrées, denses. Levure fine, avec pointe de sel marin, très belle ligne. Alcool, qui soutient le tout correctement malgré son modeste niveau. Finale qui donne encore plus, un peu de tabac et du chêne blanc. CONCLUSION : comme sa sœur, l’amerikaans, cette american pale ale peut convaincre plus d’un amateur d’ipa ...
