Thanks Jonas! Hazy amber - looks like nothing special. Fairly bright hop nose with blackberry, woody-herbal notes and mango. Very fizzy with deep fruity berryish character. Ok, it’s too fizzy but if they eased that up a bit I would really like it. I like the bright cantaloupe stuff in there.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice clear red amber, very lively nose with grassy, herbal tones, hints of grapefruit citrus. Appearance is nice with solid foamy head. Taste is okay as IPA, but a little bit to harsh for my palate, due to very dry beer aftertaste aswell(no strong malt flavour). The beer is mainly in the middle of the mouth traceable, and the flavour is one dimensional, but lasting for a long time. Goes well with Gouda with cloves(Nagelkaas)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
This woodsy IPA’s eloquent hop profile evolves within comfortable biscuity malt base, leading to a relatively dry finish where levelled leafy and earthy hop bitterness reigns.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sturdy head of foam decorates the lightly bronzed amber.
-Mild orangey, citrusy fruitiness seeps from the hops in the aroma and flavor profile.
-Effervescent carbonation and wise dextrins make for a very satisfying mouthfeel.
-This may lack complexity, and fruitiness from the hop bill, but it remains a beautiful quencher of an India Pale Ale nonetheless.

0,75 l bottle, Csakajosor, BP.
Hazy deep golden-amber beer with a huge, stable and froathy, creamy off white head. Fantastic aroma of a classic IPA. Strong resiny and herbal and citrussy hop with caramel and malt background. Medium bodied one with a strong herbal-resiny hop profile.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Csakajosor.hu. Poured murky amber, with an off-white, enourmous head that dissolves to a lacing one. Yeast, pine, honey, lime in the aroma. Not too complex, but solid. Medium dense body with high carbonation. Starts out honey sweet which then moves into a medium hoppy bitterness. Aftertaste is mostly hops. Not outstanding, but delivers.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle. Consistent and stable head. Beautiful bouquet of citrus fruits, but definitively some tropical fruits as well. Mild carbonation.
Taste is absolutely wonderful. I’m new to this beer category and this is a great introduction! Very pronounced hoppy bitterness (something like quinine) which didn’t affect the drinkability for me. I like this sort of bitter. Very good.

är en IPA i äkta De Molen-stil… lite tam.
Ok – det var kanske inte en purfärsk flaska, men den hamnar ändå in i kategorin “Typisk De Molen” som jag tycker gör alt för “snälla” öl. Jag undrar alltid… tänk hur gott det kunde blivit om dom bara vågade lite. Mycket skum, ganska snäll citrus smak med en liten aning malt och jäst. Aning spritig eftersmak.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark yellow, misty beer with a big white head. It smells of barn, malts, nuts a hint of caramel and a a fruit that is not exactly citrus, more like pomegranate. Good taste, a bit sweet but mostly fiercely bitter. Very nice, very drinkable... almost too drinkable, I want to keep enjoying this!
