zenkis (629) - Ogre, - NOV 18, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2012 Pale golden, a bit muddy in color with white lasting top. High carbonation is obvious. Aroma is complex to me - some floral citrusy, sweetness, tones of rhubarb. Taste is start-up sweet that lengthen in bitter with minimal sour, astringent afterpath; not dry, lively cause of carbo level. Middle to full body. Overall - interesting IPA, very drinkable, very fresh but could be more hopped.

kajser27 (72) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 25, 2015
Cloudy amber with a very strong white head and lacing. Overfoaming even. Aroma is quite flowery, citrus and sweet fruits. Taste follows the nose with the sweet malt, citrus-orange, sweet fruits, and strong floral hoppiness. Bitter dry finish. Medium bodied and quite refreshing.

Kleurplaatje (72) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2015
Pours hazy dark orange with a beautiful stable, dense white head that leaves wonderful lacing. Nice fruity aroma. Notes of citrus, yellow fruits (mango, passion fruits), oranges, peaches... Nice hoppy note as well. Good nose in general. Taste is predominantly bitter and dry. Yet there is a small fruity kick that lives up near the end. It creates a beautiful soft aftertaste in which the fruity flavors give a nice fruity kick in this dryish brew. However, it might be a bit too bitter. It could have had just a bit more oomph in terms of sweetness. This is just, well, not a miss, but it makes a difference between a 7 or a 8. Just one extra citric kick will make this a good one. Yet still, this brew remains extremely refreshing and nice to drink. Nice palate as well. Medium bodied, thick mouthfeel and average carbonation. A nice, loveable, soft and tasty IPA that won’t bore you. Another well done brew from De Molen.

bergstaden (1474) - Røros, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2015
Dark golden with a white head - Good hop aroma that is fruity - Good malt body to support the hops that has some fruityness and hints of pine - Hops goes into the finish with a good dry bitterness - This was good

Towey1989 (122) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours a orange amber colour with a lasting, creamy white head. Strong aroma of spicy hops and pine with tropical fruit smells too. Taste of spicy, citrus hops. Hints of grapefruit and mango and also resin. A long hop bitterness in the finish. A nice take on a IPA.
