3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In food and in beer I enjoy a subtle element of smoke. The smoke in this one is too doninant for my taste. Rauchbier enthousiasts will like it. It has a nice citrussy fresh slightly sour taste with good hop bitterness in the aftertaste.

Nice full (and bitter) IPA. The smokey flavour doesn’t predominate and gives the beer good depth. Good choice if you’d like a non-standard IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 33cl. Yellow with a slight orange glow, bit hazy with a medium white top. Aroma of malts and dry hop, somewhat orange peel. The taste is bitter up front with malt hints too. The aftertaste develops into an even more bitter experience with pepper flavours kicking in. Some of the more surprising beers I have tasted.

33 cl. bottle @ home, gift from Hilde.
Hazy amber with a big white head. Smoky aroma with some citrus. Nice bitterness and a good solid body At first the combination of smoke and citrus is a bit weird but it grows on you remarkably well. Nice unusual beer

Sample @ Haarlem Bierfestival. Pours s hazy golden beer with a thin white head on top. Aroma is light smokey, some citric notes and malty influences. Flavour is a bit dull, some citric notes, citric flavour and quite bitter. A bit one dimensional, but not too bad.

Van de tap @HaarlemSpeciaalbierfestival. Mooi helder geel bier, licht rokerig en hoppig van smaak, wat moutig van geur. Een rokerige IPA, geen typische IPA smaak, wel lekker rokerig en fris.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml. bottle @ home. No BBF. Hazy orange, smaller white head. Nose is leathery smoke, light Tarry Souchong, smoked malt, smoked wood, huge leather, light pine way in the back. Taste is mildly bitter plastic, smoked oily pine mixed with caramel sweetness, light bark, pine, faintly floral, smoked wood, bitter plastic, loose tobacco,… Oily, rather milky, lightly dry body, some plastic. The plastic note dominates too much, it isn’t perfect for sure but it is interesting & enjoyable. With an altered recipe it could really shine. So far I am liking this brewery.
