Tap at the Euston Tap - 10/04/12. Slightly hazy (chill?) copper/orange with a mid sized white head. Nose is full of hops, tropical fruits and grass. Juicy resinous hops in the taste, tangerine, grapefruit, mango. Medium bodied and carbonation with a bitter finish - I liked!

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2013 Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2011.Pale orange hazy beer with awhite head. Hoppy,citrus and fruity aroma and similar flavour withsome spicy notes. Re-rated this one after a visit to De Molen brewery and got this one from a barrel: Hazy yellow/amber beer with a big offwhite head. Hoppy and fruity aroma. Fruity and hoppy lovely flavour. A lovely beer to enjoy at any occasion! :-)

DuffMan (7996) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle, shared with my wife but barely, as I pretty much hogged the entire bottle. Hazy orange-tinted gold with an enormous lively white head that bubbles and laces and is just awesome. Aroma is so full-on tropical fruit, particularly passionfruit. Some caramel, some soft yeast too. Flavour is again passionfruit, some vegetal conifer notes, some green mango skin, all supported by a light caramel malt base. Almost creamy mouthfeel. This was just so excellent!

Aroma is fruity with mango and passion. Also hints of caramel. Flavour is hoppy with exotic fruits, some biscuits and caramel. Quite nice ”light IPA.”

tfredvik (1406) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2012
A medium amber body, leaning towards orange, with a huge, creamy, white head of impressive longevity: when I empty my glass there is still 1 cm of foam left in my glass, and the walls are covered in lacings. Beautiful! Quite unusual for a De Molen beer: the body is clear, no sediments in the bottle, no yeasty lumps in my glass and no gushing! An intense hoppy aroma, very pleasant and extremely sweet and fruity. Lots and lots of tropical fruits like peach, mango and litchi with grapefruit in the back, this reminds me of a fruit cocktail, it’s almost too sweet. Also sweet berries, I get ripe raspberries. The taste is moderate to light sweet and the long-lasting finish is moderate bitter. A quite gentle IPA this one, a good balance between the sweetness and the bitterness. Strong fruity flavours, mostly peach and grapefruits, also resin and caramel. Lovely mouthfeel, the body feels medium and smooth with a medium to soft carbonation. A fantastic IPA!
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 1.5 years before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]
