Commissioned by a Dutch beer company. Sticky, off-white head, misty orange blonde colour. Aroma of fresh, green hops, vanilla, banana, white pepper, thyme, pineapple, mango, tomato; taste fruity (apple), citrus touch, honeyish malts, spicy notes increasing towards the finish, which otherwise consists of a resinous, herbal, peppery, long and dry hop bitterness. Very decent IPA.

Mooie grote kraag op een troebel oranjekleurig bier. Veel bezinksel. Ruikt citrushoppig en mout. Smaakt behoorlijk vol, citrus, fruitig, niet té bitter. Goed spul.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra Tiel.
Hazy orange with a big white head. Malty aroma with ofcourse citrus hops.
Nice gentle bitterness and a very present but not overwhelming hop presence. More English than American in style I feel. Good, balanced IPA.

Malty body, bitter and fruity taste of the great amarillo hops. Nevertheless, they could have used more hops.
