3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, courtesy of Palme. Amber-brown with a big head. Sweet, American hop aroma, with pine, mango and passion fruit at the front, and also pineapple, grapefruit, peach, some pear and some caramelly malt. What I didn’t like was the biting carbonation, coupled with the sharp bitterness - the beer came across rather rough, rustic I would say perhaps. Other than that, this is a very good IPA, with a medium body, light sweetness, strong bitterness (but too rough), actually more hoppy-bitter than hoppy-aromatic while drinking - bitter-centered. Does not succeed in living up to the original from De Molen, but still very good.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks KnutAlbert for this bottle! Hazy copper-amber with an off-white head. Aroma of flowers, citrus and some tropical fruits. Flavor has a bit of sweetish malt and a nice fruity and floral hops with a bitter and slightly grapefruity finish. Medium-bodied.

Very drinkable and well-hopped IPA. Aroma is floral with a bit of citrus, taste is nearly mellow but the bitterness still dominates.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Molt bona IPA. Molt ben equilibrada. Bona textura, bona amargor, escuma persistent. Postgust llarg.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great punch in the nose, powerfull rich hoppy feeling in the mouth. Maybe a bit to much smokeynes, but this is drawed back from the elegant mix of the hops and fruits.
Ps: much better on tap!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2012 500 ml bottle kindly shared by Rune at Beer session XIX in Tromsø 220312. Hazy, dark orange body with a small lasting white head and some lacing. Commanding citrusy aroma with excellent punch and a smooth scent of fresh flowers. Flavour of tropical fruits that really tingle the taste-buds. Palate is suave and very pleasing to the mouth. Invigorating!

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2013 Excellent stuff, had this on cask at North Bar, Leeds, pours a hazy orange, very well balanced beer. Malts, biscuit & caramel & orange, lemon & pine in the balance.
