3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml served in a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.
A - 3 fingers of billowing foam that looks like an ice cream float. The head just sits and sits finally forming a sudsy cap. Loads of 1/4 " thick lacing.
S - Bright hop aromas, lemon and mandarin citrus, melon, apples, floral, hints of lavender, fresh bread,
T - Sweet malt upfront followed by citrus pith, grassy bittering hops, melon and lots of tropical fruit come through and compliment the sweet malt. A green grassy bitterness rides through mixing with a semi-powdery dryness on the finish.
M - Medium body, medium carbonation, oily center, semi dry finish.
I was expecting more of a Belgian IPA but this falls in the American category. Sweet malt but not too sweet. Lots of hop flavor and aroma with a decent amount of bitterness. Citrus really starts taking over as it warms. A solid IPA.

Bottle from the shop in Bodegraven. It had a huge head. Fruity and hoppy on the nose. Similar taste with a yeasty aroma and note of earth cellar. Might have been a bit old.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Tropical aroma of pineapple and lime. Light biscuity note.
Appearance: Cloudy amber body with a massive white head that holds well. Great lacing.
Taste: Grassy, caramel and sharp citrus flavours. Really hoppy. Delicious tangy lime on the finish.
Palate: Medium body with a foamy mouthfeel. Light carbonation tickle.
Overall: I’ve not had many De Molen beers, but this is easily the best one I’ve tasted. Very hoppy and full of citrus flavours.
