3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge foamy head, don’t get a lot of aroma. Quite mild for an IPA but the aftertiste lingers a while. Bought this in Leiden, somehow seemed appropriate.

Bottle. [thanks skortila & caesar]
Coppery golden with a big, lovely, staying, creamy, light off-white head. Aroma is nicely grassy, some grapefruit, red apples. Nice and fresh with some strawberries thrown in. Medium to high carbonation, nice dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, good malty sweetness with some doughy and caramel notes. The hops are bitter and fruity with strawberries, grapefruit and grassy dryness in the finish. Quite an elegant IPA.
