Very nice bitter hops beer. Great taste as usual with beers by De Molen. Beer reminds me of De Ranke XX Bitter!

From bottle at tasting arranged by Sällskapet Malte in Feb 2011. Light amber and hazy with a stiff fluffy head. Fruity bubble gums and biscuits, simple aroma at the first sniff. After a few sips, more complex and all the fruity hops find their place. Good bitterness and very well balanced.

Cloudy amber beer, with huge white head. Lots of carbo made it very difficult to poor this beer making a massive head and allowing the yeast to come out of the bottle. Aroma is delicious citrus fruity hops. Taste is very good, nice balance between the hop bitterness and fruity sweetness. Good body as well.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a dirty beige color ale with a super huge foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of dry hoppy notes (Saaz) and some citrus notes (Amarillo) with a rustic malt backbone. Taste is a super well balanced mix between some dry hoppy notes with floral undertones and some citrus notes with a rustic malt backbone sustaining the whole mix. Body is full with limited filtration and super good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. I very much enjoyed this one and thought that the mix between Saaz and Amarillo hops was great.

Really unique and yummy IPA. Not your moms IPA. J/k, but seriously. I like the dark roasted and carlamely colors. Red/gold/brown in color big canvas head. The toasty notes of hops and malts from a whiff are great, layered with citrus and sugar. Taste is hazy roasty toasty malts, mini hops aroma and brown sugar and alco finish. I love everything Menno makes (Aka brewer of De molen) so great. The guy makes gold from a small but official setup. Palate is nice, since it slides through and brings a nice package with it. Overall great, so nice. Love it

2010 Vintage: 33 cl. bottle @ Delirium Hoppy Loft: very hazy orange with a bit white fluffy head which instantly rises incredibly as you poor the beer and quickly falls afterwards and lingers on, smell is very fruity hops, some citrus hops as well but the fruitiness definitely dominates over them, slight herbal follows, taste is aligned, very full bitterness with lots of fruitiness (including mango & citrus fruits), lots of hops in here, hint floral & touch herbal somewhere in the back, fruity pine hops, extremely well balanced despite pure hop nature & very De Molen, slightly dry finish, body is not heavy but feels full, slightly above average carb but suits this beer perfectly
