Bottle from Bierkompass!
Smells bitter grassy. Starts hoppy bitter, lots of grass notes and yeast. Finish is very bitter grassy, slight yeasty. Maybe a bit overaged...

4.8%, ipa caramel/amber met witte kraag
het aroma is wat hoppig maar niet zo extreem, zoet, citrus. De smaken zijn matig zoet, zwak bitter, licht zuurtje, iets ananastonen, lichte body, glad/romig in de mond, lage co2

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Elderly bottle (18/03/13) chosen as I love Citra - and I guess ruined. Slight citrus on the nose, not much. Unexpectedly sour and bitter, lambic-like, barely a hint of sweetness. Very light. Thin and watery, fizzy, astringent, turns to foam in the mouth. A ghost of it’s former glory it would seem.
Very dissapointed with my first De Molen

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. 2 liter sample. (No joke) Aroma has a lot of citrus. Some light malty tones. Hazy, yellow coloured beer, medium lasting white head. The taste is moderate bitter with a lingering bitter dry palate. The taste is just one epic citra parade. Really nice. Drunk fresh and had some overaged samples last weekend from march 2013 at Rootz in the hague. These were definately way too old. However fresh this is just great. Raying based on fresh ones of course

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a murky straw color, with a thick, lasting head. Moderate lacing. Smells of grapefruit and orange peel, as well as hints of pine and toffee sweetness. The aroma is probably my favorite part of this beer. The taste rather mild, with citrus and a light sweetness, which is countered at the end, with again a very mild bitterness. An easy drinking beer, not what i expected, but quite good

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yellow somewhat cloudy body with little to no head. Aroma of citrus, some lemon and lemongrass and a ton of caramel. Same taste, the caramel was very strong. Mild to no aftertaste, light body, light carbonation. Maybe the 6 months since bottling destroyed it. Very sessiony though.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Visual: Once again it’s their bare-bones basic label with basic font. It’s extremely plain and boring, but at the same time instantly recognizable. What matters most is what’s inside the bottle, right? Pours cloudy marmalade orange with a large, kinda-lasting foamy head with some sticky lacing and retention, lots of scattered, varied-speed streams.
Nose: a mix of barnyard funk, passion fruit & grapefruit. (6/10)-aromatic strength.
Attack: incoming SOFT hops + sour citrus
Mid-palate: (4/10)-sweetness, (MAIN) fruity grapefruit/pomelo, tangy malts, (6/10)-sourness/acidity
Finish: very soft grapefruity (2/10)-bitter hops, residual sourness/minor funk/light dry finish.
Summary: Not as sharp nor bitter as other IPAs, this one is quite easy to sip and finish.
