Boekanier (57) - - JUN 24, 2014
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.

Gangstergafje (593) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2016
The beer looks nice. The color of the brew is a nice light amber. The beer pours a nice amount of rather soft, slightly tinted foam. The beer has a nice little cloudiness. The looks are nice. The smell is delicious. The aromas are extremely fruity. I smell a truckload of citrusy hops, resulting in the typical IPA bitter, sweet and refreshingly sour infusion. The smell is typical IPA, without it being overdone. Some IPA’s can smell almost artificial, but not this one. I smell only fresh natural products. There is also a little nutty aroma in the smell, giving the beer a little savory touch. The taste is pretty much the same as the smell. It is a IPA with a delicious fruity infusion at the beginning and a strong bitter aftertaste. It is an IPA with some balls. The beer also had a pleasant amount of gas, which adds to the kick of bitterness. Sweet!

Zlotta (1583) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2016
Sampled from tap at ’Craft & Draft’. Slightly hazy, golden amber with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, white head. Sweetish, fruity-grassy aroma of lemon, grapefruit and honey. Sweetish, fruity-grassy taste of honey, lemon and grapefruit, followed by a short, slightly bitter, a little grassy finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, flat. A bit sweet, not too bitter, but very nice!

Provenant de Bier Market à Nantes. Une bière aux belles couleures orangées avec une mousse assez fine mais persistante. Au nez, une très forte odeur de mangue et de fruits tropicaux accompagnées d’effluves lactées surprenantes. En bouche c’est une explosion de goût très fidèle aux arômes du nez avec un goût intensément fruité limité lacté/soyeux et une amertume dicrète merveilleusement équilibrée du début à la fin, une carbonation bien marquée. Une longueur en bouche maîtrisée et bien prononcée. Une des IPA/DIPA les mieux équilibrées et les plus accessibles que j’ai goûté, une franche tuerie !

jookos (5105) - FINLAND - FEB 27, 2016
Rated la 27.02.2016.

bottle. Orange hazy. Orange zesty malty, slight bitter sweet nose, oh, and pines, bit grassy ones too. Med plus bodied, bit thick, malty, caramelly sweetness, but well bittered. Finishes a bit messy, some dough, random grassy vegetals. Ok drink, flavourful, but seems overall a bit old (though bbe oct 16), dulled out. Just a lot of malts and bitters here now.
