JohhnyB (129) - CROATIA - APR 12, 2016
0,33 bottle. Hazy golden yellow color with medium but long lasting white head aroma of citrus, reisin, sugar, yeast and hopes. Sweet and lots of bitterness in taste. Alcohol as well. High carbonatin.

Chudwick (2682) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - APR 8, 2016
33cl - nose is citrus and pine. Sip adds hay and weedy notes. Not as bad as the ratings suggest. Sweeter than an ipa.

UXO (1250) - CANADA - APR 3, 2016
Appearance: clear medium gold with one fingers of fluffy white head, excellent retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: apple and pear, pale malt, bready yeast, grassy, citrus rind. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, mild tart. (6/10) Palate: medium-light body, prickly to moderate sustained carbonation, and an off-dry mildly bitter and lightly tart finish. (3/5) A bit like a sweetish tripel. Not really all that hoppy, and what hops there are come through as an almost vegetal or grassy spiciness in the finish. A straightforward golden blond, reasonably pleasant, with nothing to really recommend or reject it. (13/20)

Inoven (79) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAR 30, 2016
Flesje 33 gedronken. Aroma is hoppig en toch fruitig. Goudgeel bier met stevige witte schuimkraag. In de smaak komt de citrus naar boven. Smaak ebt snel weg.

Batavi (306) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2016
Fles 75 cl. Gedeeld en uitgeschonken in Kasteel bokaal. Goudgeel helder bier, met een kleverige witte schuimkraag. Aroma's zijn hoppig en kruidig, een soort IPA van Kasteel, maar toch anders. In het aroma tonen van sinaasappel, koriander, witte peper, gras en florale hopsoorten. De smaak is opvallend droog voor een Kasteel, kruidig en verfrissend met tonen van citrusfruit, witte wijn en florale accenten. Carbonatie is medium, de afdronk is droog en relatief kort. Beetje onverwachte smaak voor een bier van brouwerij Van Honsebrouck, hoewel echte IPA's vooral die uit Amerika toch beter zijn als meer gehopte bieren, dit zijn duidelijk andere hopsoorten. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Hazy golden with very big fluffy bright white head. Sweet malts, light spicy yeast, grassy, cardboard, light light lime, bitter leafy vegetables. Under medium sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with quite some fizzy carbonation. Pointless but not that bad overall.
