On tap as Lente Hop@The De Molen Brewery, Bodegraven. Great looking slightly hazy amber/orange colour with a big plump off white head perched on top. Top marks for appearance. Wonderful snout of fresh fruity hops which also took a starring role in the taste. Just sublimely fresh and tasty. All the elements just purred in harmony down to the last sip; then you were left craving more of this little beauty straight off the bat. A pleasure to drink.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2011 For me this is one of the best beers in the world. Lovely hops in the smell and taste, a bit fruity also. Lovely gold/orange colour. It’s really hard to create a beer that i will like even more.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2012 Bottle. Cloudy orange pour, medium tanned head. Hoppy aroma with orange, grapefruit, citrus and pine. Some spices as well.
Flavour is full of fruity hops, bitter, but not overwhelming. Very refreshing and easy going ipa. Very nice beer for a bbq, well make that anytime.
Love this stuff.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2012 Beautiful pale-golden color with pronounced frothy head. Moderate bitterness and decise hoppy character, especially amarillo. Medium body with rather low carbonation. Very good brew, worth looking for even if you’re not an IPA freak.

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

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.

One day I will have to drink all the molen IPA’s next to eachother to taste the difference. This one reminds me a lot of their by-now distinctive IPA style. Pouring it yields a strong head above a medium amber liquid. The smell indicates yeast cultures one has come to love if one likes Molen beers. It also has a strong pistacho/wax/almond aroma that promises more ... and it delivers. Good strong hop combination with a full body. The palate lingers and transforms from bitter hop notes into a taste like marzipan. The most amazing thing is how the aroma transforms over time. What is soft in the beginning becomes a strong hop taste that almost reminds me of Dutch marihuana. When your glass is almost empty, the last remnants of aroma float around in there with almond notes.

Bottle at Kent BF 2010. Just gorgeous. Aroma of Amarillo is just amazing. Soft pale malts in mouth, then hops on finish are great. Not overly bitter, but gorgeous. Just love it.

Bottle from Bierkompass. On my bottle there is written Lente Hop. Hazy golden color with huge foamy white head. Another De Molen beer, which wants to escape from my glass. Floral, citrus aroma with, mango, some spices. Taste, nice floral bitter hops, pines, grapefruit, caramel. Nice IPA.
