3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Black Door, 20140906) The beer poured amber and mildly hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness and citricness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. Not a bad pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the brewery store. Dark amber, hazy body, with a big, frothy, white head. Sweet aroma of citrus, orange, passion fruit, yeast, caramel, honey. Taste is alao pretty sweet, with orange, sweet fruits, grass, caramel, honey. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, fruity and grassy. Too sweet for my liking. Very juicy, almost sticky, from both sweet malts and sweet fruits, with some more grass notes. Overall not bad, but I’ve had much better Dutch IPAs.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting take on the IPA. Light grass and pine hoppiness, but more than balanced out with a toffee, caramel, bread maltiness.
