Zeer mooi oranje licht troebel bier met fijne witte schuimkraag. Fris fruitig aroma (mandarijn, mango, perzik, tropisch fruit). Fruitige tropische aanzet met een heerlijk lange bittere afdronk. Zéér goed in balans. Goeie ipa.

DuffMan (9022) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 17, 2016
Bottle, shared with the brewery crew. Pours a medium golden hue, lasting white head. Tropical fruit and pine, nicely attenuated malts (much preferable over the golden syrup sweetness of the Alphadelic), long bitter finish.

Hamirubi (541) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2016
15cl sample at the Ghent Beer Festival VI (22 VIII 2015). A not too pungent indian pale ale. This Hop Valley IPA has a fruity character for sure, coming from the different hop varieties. But the nose is dominated by dust. The taste also has pine wood and hay flavours. This IPA is described as a complex beer, yes maybe, yet it seems to me as neither fish nor flesh.

mateuszk (1584) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 11, 2016
Bottle. Hazy golden, white head. Aroma of citrus fruits and some sweetness from malt. In taste fruity, crisp and bitter. Very nice.

eManu (527) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2016
Pours a hazy amber color with a almost no head. Aroma is hoppy and citrussy. Flavors again of citrus, fruity, herbs and spices. Bitter, sweet and badly balance. After a short while it becomes unpleasant and not really nice. Once but not twice.

imdownthepub (12812) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2016
Bottled, 355ml from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham, Gloucs. Hazy Orange amber with white head. There is a crisp, malty body to this, with a bitter-sweetness, some pleasing toasty notes. From this there is a full, refreshing hoppy flavour, tropical fruits along with a cleaning citrus note. Lasting palate and refreshing throughout. Pretty decent.

thanatosti (1427) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2016
35,5 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ van Rooij, Culemborg. Hazy amber with a big white head. Citrus hops aroma. Taste is bittersweet with a short sweetish finish. Body is a bit thin. Still good though, nice multilayered IPA.

danlo (2295) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2016
12 fl oz bottle from Hippo Beers. Hazy orange amber colour, creamy foam head leaving lacing and aroma of tropical fruits, orange citrus, hoppy. Flavour is malt caramel with juicy fruits, citrus grapefruit, pine, resiny hop bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry bitter finish. Nicely drinkable.

mkam (409) - POLAND - FEB 17, 2016
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a nice white head, nit big, but leaves marks on the glass. Aroma is nice, hoppy, citrus, could be more intensive though. Beer is very fruity, crisp with a short, bitter finish. Very good one.

altonbrownd (5290) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Bottle in Portland. Nice golden body with slight head. Nose is hops, citrus, grapefruit. Taste of hops and sweet. Nice hoppy finish. Well done.
