COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Origin: Gouden Carolus Hopsinjoor completes the taste pallet of the gamma Carolus-beers. Name: "Hopsinjoor" is a wordplay to for one thing the several hops which were used, and on the other hand the typical character of Mechelen of Gouden Carolus: the figure "opsinjoor" is intertwined with the history of Mechelen (see: www.opsinjoorke.be/Opsinjoorke/opsinjoor.htm). Kind of hops: 4 types of hops are used: Golding, Spalt, Hallertau and Saaz. These hops were fractioned at several times in the cooking process in order to keep a maximum of aroma. Regarding to taste we can say that the beer has a gentle, but nevertheless bitter aftertaste. Gold-yellow colour. Hoppy aroma. 50 IBU / 18.6 Plato

17-12-2015 Delft Mitra Niet zo lekker als de andere bieren van Gouden Carolus maar zeker de moeite waard. Mooie donkergoud kleur met redelijk veel schuim. Heeft een sterk bittere nasmaak die (iets te) lang doorprikkelt in je gehemelte door hoge koolzuurgehalte. Desondanks toch nog vrij frisse smaak (citrus).

Hopverdju (663) - BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2015
Troebelblond bier met rijke witte blijvende schuimkraag. Lichte citrusgeur. Frisse smaak, wat citrus en licht hoppig. Aangenaam bitterige afdronk.

Milter (712) - Nyborg, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2015
Dejlig og spændende øl fra mit farvoritbryggeri. Tilpas meget humle - og ikke for bitter øl. Flot farve og skum.

Hazy golden color with huge white head. Taste has some Belgian yeast, and a good citrusy and floral character. High carbonation. Taste follows the aroma, yeasty, with green apple, lemon, orange peel and flowers, with a moderate bitter and spicy ending. I expected a much more hop character, maybe not the freshest bottle.

Butelka, warka do 17/05/2016 - czyli swoje postala. Jasne, zoltawo-bursztynowe piwo z bardzo ladna ale szybko opadajaca, biala piana. Aromaty niezwykle intensywne - roslinne, ziolwe (przez chwile moj mozg zinterpretowal to jako kolendre), owocowe (morele chyba najbardziej). miod... W ustach czuc i slodycz i kwaskowatosc lekka i goryczke niewysoka - bardzo ladnie razem ulozone. Spore wysycenie. Niewiele ciala. Bardzo rzeskie. No i rzeczjasna to nie jest zadne Belgian Strong Ale, tylko BIPA, ale przez wielkie B. Bardzo dobre.

Mooi troebel goudblond bier met rijke witte schuimkraag. Bloemig aroma. Rijk en vol in de mond. Brood, geel fruit, graan, beetje hop. Warme afdronk. Misschien net iets te zoet en had iets bitterder mogen zijn. Voor de rest een zeer lekker bier.

33cl bottle. Hazy orangish golden colour with a generous white head. Hops, fruity and citrus in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is sweet at first followed by a hoppy bitter finish. Overall, a very good beer.

cph1698 (1) - Vlissingen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 28, 2015 does not count
Poured in a tulip glass from a chilled 25cl bottle. Nice wite foam. Aroma: bananas, nuts, Taste: not too hoppy to my opinion, but still a very nice bitter taste. Nice long aftertaste.
