0.33 l bottle. Hazy amber color. Aromas of orange, mango and pine with hint of yeast. Taste of pine, mango and orange with faint of biscuity malt. Fruity and yeasty bitterness in finish. Medium body. Fairly drinkable, although a bit yeasty.

Buona IPA! Molto equilibrata l’amaro non è da sfatafascio. Aroma agrumato e luppolato. Al palato molto rinfrescante e beverina. Agrumata anche in bocca (ovvimente, visto che c’è il bergamotto) e a tratti resinosa. Ottima Ipa.

Idiosynkrasie (4085) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2012
330ml bottle. Cloudy dark orangey golden to amber colour with small frothy lacing off-white head. Very nice but decent fruity aroma, mandarin, blood orange, grapefruit, peach. Taste has a bitter hoppy overtone in combination with a slightly sweet fruity malt basis whose intermixture results mainly in grapefruit notes, with mandarin flashing up near the end. So far the best De Molen IPA I’ve tasted. Still in their typical oily and earthy, somehow clumsy style, not as fresh and crisp as other examples of the style - but with a complex range of fruity notes sustained in taste opposite to promising ephemeral hop flavours that often lead to disappointment in taste.

Somewhat hazy dark yellow with white foam head lacing to glass. Aroma is sweet bitter hop, taste is pure bitterness. (Bodegraven 201206) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TrefwoordPunk (818) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a dark orange with a small white head and an aroma of fresh hops and citrus. The taste is mainly based on the complex bitterness of the different hops and some malts and fruity sweetness. A really nice beer, but not too surprising.

grunx (367) - - MAY 29, 2012
Entrada molt aromatica a llúpol i flors blanques. Poca retenció d’escuma. L’aroma és relativament volàtil. Bona amargor en boca. IPA molt floral. Lleugera i fàcil.

Cunningham (4887) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2012
Hazy orange colour with an off white head. Rich floral hoppy nose. Rich hoppy and fruity flavour. Rich taste, but also mild and easy drinkable.

Very nice bitter hops beer. Great taste as usual with beers by De Molen. Beer reminds me of De Ranke XX Bitter! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
