Sask89 (418) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - DEC 14, 2012
Pours a clear amber colour with a big frothy tan head. Aroma is of strong citrus fruits with a slight caramel malt scent. Taste is citrus sweet with a noticeable bitterness after the sip. Lighter body, well carbonated and thin of the palate. Nice but not exceptional IPA.

CacheManyHose (227) - HONG KONG - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from Craft Brew & Co. Hazy translucent gold-orange with fluffy white-cream head. Smells of bitter dry crisp West Coast hops - resinous, a bit grassy and metallic. Tastes bitter, some orange and citrus, grapefruit peel. Body is thin, gentle carbonation, slightly foamy. Not bad but not terribly interesting.

HKdIPA (284) - HONG KONG - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from Craft Brew & Co. Translucent yellow orange pour. Aroma is like Mikkeller-type IPAs, that "rounder" maltier smell, like hoppy Apple candy. Taste is same - apple juice hops malty sweetness. Mostly sweet finish. Carbonation cuts the heavier sweetness. Solid IPA.

Fashawn (168) - Montesarchio, ITALY - NOV 20, 2014
Ipa Molto solida e ben fatta, come quasi tutte le produzioni de Molen, non presenta difetti e spicca in alcuni casi. Arancio quasi velato, a tratti ambrato, bella schiuma persistente e corposa, sul bianco acido. Birra che sprigiona un Bouquet di fiori di assoluto rispetto. Innanzitutto frutta dolce come melone e Kiwi, tratti di Papaya e Mango. In secondo piano piccoli sentori caramellati, e sul finale l’amalgama delle ghiande e dei pini, aghifoglie, resina. Bello il finale dell’odore, fosse un po’ più intenso sarebbe il Top. All’’imbocco c’è una certa dolcezza diffusa, smorzata solo sul finale da una medio alta amarezza, abbastanza lunga. Sulla bocca ho subito un po’ di frutta come pesche e melone, qualche kiwi e il Mango. Uno strato centrale composto dal caramello, smorzato pochissimo dalla carbonatazione che non è eccessiva. Il finale è lungo e persistente, la birra ha un buon corpo . Le note finali sono tutte erbacee e lievemente citriche. L’amalgama Generale è ottimo, bella la chiusura sull’amaro. La struttura fila liscia, non appiccica mai. è beverina ma non acquosa. Gran bella Birra. Amo questo Birrificio.

jphartley (23) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2014
Bottle from Mitra (Beukenweg, Amsterdam) Aroma floral, with mild notes of grapefruit and something vegetal. Appearance darker than your normal IPA and frothy. This is a fairly bitter IPA but it lacks somewhat in body. Though not a bad beer overall it is far from De Molen’s best IPA.

Torrefacto (616) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 9, 2014
Cobrizo tupido con espuma marfil densa. Aromas de frutas tropicales, resinas y pino. Cuerpo medio y textura maltosa, inicio ligeramente dulce y afrutado con final de amargor seco y resinoso. Muy rica.

An exceptional IPA. Perfect balance between sweet (vanilla) malts & earthy, pineapple & peach hops. Blows most American IPAs out of the water. Rated by BrewTom

Really good IPA, as De Molen does. A bit too malty, but really good balanced.
