COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Reddish-brown pour from tap. Mild, floral aroma, bitter forward but balanced. Not especially memorable but a balanced and pleasant IPA. Far too many interesting IPA’s to compete with here. Would I drink again? yes. Would I order again? no.

Bottle at my local Albert Heijn. Aroma is a bit of musk, pineapple, and wet grass. Taste is fairly bitter with some tropical fruit. High carbonation.

Batavi (349) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2016
Fles gekocht bij AH supermarkt, uitgeschonken in Sint Crispijn bierglas. Blonde goudgele kleur met een kleine witte schuimkraag, die zich terugtrekt tot een fijne dunne laag. Verse IPA aroma's van pijnboom, dennennaalden en tropisch fruit als ananas, grapefruit en kokos. Erg mooie en verse hop aroma's. Het smaakpallet is verfrissend en mooi in balans, vrij droog van smaak, met uitstekende verse hoptonen. Droog maar gebalanceerd met een moutige toon, en een zoetje van honing en tropisch fruit als mango en ananas. Een droge, lange en hopbitter afdronk van grapefruit en dennennaalden, met een medium carbonatie. Een echte verrassing deze IPA uit Hawaï, echt vers, smaakvol en in balans, een perfect zomerbier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oelbas (272) - DENMARK - AUG 21, 2016
Let tåget gylden med et forholdsvis kortvarigt hvidt skum. Duften er umiddelbart præget af grape, men afløses snart af en mere nuanceret duft af blomst og fyrrenåle. Smagen er tør og bitter med antydning af grape, der forsvinder forholds hurtigt i eftersmagen. En rigtig fin amerikansk IPA af den tørre slags.

Supermarket beer in Holland. Warm-golden pour with white head. Very fruite, hoppy, citrus, some grass, with a pleasant hop bitterness. Nice IPA.

Gyllene till orange öl med vitt skum. Doft och smak är gräsig med inslag av fruktighet, främst persika och grapefrukt.

Drank with Rik during our supermarket-beer-tasting 13/8/16. Assertive beer, lots of carbonation. Some hop in it. Fine beer.

Hamirubi (564) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2016
35.5cl bottle at home (11 VIII 2016). Golden coloured brew with firm long lasting, creamy white foam. Beautifully flavoured ale with fruity hops and subtle malts. The fruits reveal certain passiflora fruits, pineapple, lemon, citrus zeste, and even some blossoms flavours. Yet, the taste is quite a downer, with a plain, dry mouthfeel and little body. No-nonsens for some, others would say it is just not complex. Not bad for an American IPA, yet this Hawaiian beer is not a smash hit either. The bitterness lingers around the malty, leafy and spiced sensations, but the body is too faint. A solid brew, a pleasant American IPA with lovely nose, a good but modest taste sensation.

bottled. Clear golden with medium white head. Aroma of caramel and fruity hops. Taste is also caramel, malty, sweet and hoppy. Bitterness is higher, medium carbonation. Crispy with dry finish.
