Bottle at ABC Beers, Den Haag. This is a really great IPA and probably one of the very best in the Netherlands. Poured a lovely, slightly cloudy golden brown with a lovely frothy head and loads of lace. A lovely combination of hops delivers a wonderfully smooth bitterness that is an absolute delight. One of my favourite IPA's and a real find.

Courtesy of Jan (fonefan); bb 20/09/12; could this be 6 months old?
Hazy amber color with generous creamy head. Mild but nice hoppy aroma, a bit fruity and metallic; late hop resins. The body is weak and the mouthfeel very dry; dry toffee flavor, with decent hop contribution, very light fruity touch, and some more piney resins; correct bitterness; the final is weak and not interesting, there is some paper. Drinkable, but possibly unfresh.

Draft at Wildeman in Amsterdam. Wet, crisp orange-brown, soapy heavy head. Terrific English hop / ipa aroma. Tart, some fruit. Sip is a bit soapy-dry, dry bittering finish, a bit too much. Nice stickiness, good bodied IPA. Ginger, flowers, wild grass. pretty good.
