Copper colored beer with a dense which leaves a small ring. Aroma is very hoppy: piny, surprisingly citrusy. Taste: sweet, bit caramel-like, bitter finish which lingers. Palate: watery, ok. Very nice ipa, especially the citrusy aroma is remarkable.

MarcoDL (2179) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle. Murky amber color, almost no head. Taste of sweet malt, with notes of fruit and caramel. Modestly hopped, with a grassy and bitter touch. Decent.

androman (388) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2014
33cl bottle @ home from Bert’s Bierhuis, Utrecht. Clear later hazy orange copper color, minimal off-white mostly diminishing fair lacing head. Aroma lemon peel, grapefruit, quinine, tons of hops, licorice, pine resin. Taste light to medium sweetness, heavy hoppy bitterness, light fruity sourness. Full body, sticky texture, soft to flat carbonation, long lasting strong hoppy bitter finish. Refreshing, but not very easy, delicious strong IPA, maybe a bit overhopped.

A middling IPA. Has some nice bitter quality to it and some tropical fruit and citrus flavor, but an overall weak character.

Douberd (2285) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2014
(Kompaan 58) Bottle 330 ml, poured into a tulip glass, ABV 8.2% Deep orange colour on the body, very clear, with a good sized off-white head, thick enough. Good retention, medium lacing on the glass. Not so strong aroma but smells good. Faint hops, more obvious caramel, little grass. Taste is a bit nutty, with caramel again, good signs of the hops now, citrus, intense bitterness on the finish and the aftertaste, with long duration, Well hidden alcohol too. Medium thin body, lively carbonation. Nicely dry palate. Overall a quite good IPA, would be even better with more aroma.

wvhoran (237) - Tasmania, - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle. Hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is heavy grapefruit, caramel malt. Flavour is sweet grapefruit, caramel, leading to a heavy bitter finish. Not bad by any means, but unrefined and unimpressive.

FatPhil (9344) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2014
330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec) (6-:3:6-:3-:11=2.9---)
Gold, small brief head. Sticky sweet hoppy aroma. Taste follows that closely - sweet caramelly malts, rich bitter hops add a nice finish. Aromatic hops sticky and fruity. Too sticky, too sweet.

LomYst (487) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2014
fairly thick hops, ripe/rotten pineapple, ripe passion/citrusfruit... taste is bitter sweet, but more on the bitter side, a bit of a soapy bitter... soft carbs full body nice thickish liquid... long bitter ripe fruity hop finish... its good, but lack balance in taste to be outstanding
