3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poors a nice, golden beer. Smells hoppy. Hints of citrus. The tase is an explosio of bitterness. Also hints of grapefruit. The aftertaste is also very, very bitter. The bitterness is overwhelming, too bad it’s not more complex, but still a fairly nice beer. If you love IPAs you’ll love this.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 33cl poured cloudy yellow
aroma light grain fruity apricot/yellow plum
taste dry bitter resinous hops too evident and spoil the taste dry bitter long finish
body is medium but too gassy
overall not up to de molen’s darker beers try once and move on
just enforces my opinion that dutch beers have still a long way to go to catch up with Belgium’s finest

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear golden with a very big, lasting white foamy head. Nose is citrus, tropical fruits and hops. Expecting a bitter, full hoppy IPA.
Taste: rather surprising, this comes in very soft and tasty, the real IPA bitterness kicks in at the end. Excellent brew.
