Bottled, thanks fonefan! Lightly hazy amber, mid sized head. Aroma of salted grapefruit and mango. Mid dry with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. A bit of bread and licorice. Long salty bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle (bottled on July 17th, 2012) picked up at the De Molen bottle shop pours with a clear copper body and thin golden hues and supporting a tall light tan head of foam. The modest aroma offers up lots of different things. First few whiffs I’m getting a mix of lime and floral hops and then other drags bring up an earthy tea note. Wow, this has an interesting taste. It goes from malt sweetened lime and bitter floral hops to an acidic lemon note that forces a mild earthy black tea hoppiness deep into the background. Around those flavors lurks a tangelo juice citrus note that runs from the front and into the finish. I’m enjoying this for its balance and tasty bitter hoppiness. Would have loved to try it super fresh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm, brewed July 17 2012
Hazy amber color with medium sized compact head. The aroma is a bit dusty. Caramel flavor, dry and dusty, with strong bitterness, but not many hop qualities.
A bit harsh and unimpressive.

1.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Incredibly big head. Actually too much cause it takes a couple of minutes to pour it. A big head is nice to look at but this is just tedious. No I don’t want to wait 10 minutes before I can drink it. Otherwise it looks great with amber-red tone together with the head, but the aroma is weak with some dishwaster feeling to it. I wonder if also this bottle was bad from beernavigator. Doesn’t have that hoppy aroma or taste. Maybe its old, was bottled in July 2012 and I just bought this. Its very unsatisfying to have an IPA in front of me at the beginning of the weekend and then it tastes like this.. Might as well have a Leffe. A disappointment.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2013 Pours hazy dark orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity/citrus and something weird that i don’t like. Taste is medium sweet, same with the bitterness and some fruity sourness. Worst Molenbeer i had so far.

Pours dark orange with a foamy head. Aroma of bready malts, grassy hops, hints of fruits and grapefruit. Taste is nicely fruity and hoppy with hints of bready malts, rye, grapefruit and grassy notes. Finish is fruity and malty with a nice touch of bready rye notes. Quite tasty IPA with a nice touch of rye.
