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.

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.

Pours light orange with a large bubbly head. Aroma of fruity hops, some earthy notes, soapy caramel notes and hints of lemon. Taste is quite fruity and lemony with some grassy hops and malty notes. Finish is bitter and slightly fruity with some grassy notes. Quite nice mix of American and German hops, surprisingly good and a great summer beer.
