Bottle from ABCBeers. Nice amber colour with a steady head on top. Hoppy aroma and flavour, really fruity with a nice hopbitter finish. Head lasts long and leaves nice rings on the glass. Decent IPA

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Towering light yellow-beige head, quite stable, with textbook lace over hazy orange-amber beer, well-carbonated. Grapey hops, restrained fruitiness (oranges), cake and some spices (clove?). Mild bitterness, no sweetness until a hint in the finish. Bitter orange -cake; long-lasting finish. Carbonation as mineral water. Slick, medium bodied, refreshing. Good original IPA. Very little Belgian character, as I read somewhere.

Tasting at ABC Beers, Haag. A great buy at €2 a bottle. Nice hoppy, aroma and aftertaste. Loasds of citrus. I would say that it does not suffer from a "low" alcoholcontent. A great IPA after a day in the sun.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thick fomy head, red perhaps light brown color and clear. Sweet taste. I wonder why this marked as IPA, I would categorize this as belgian ale. Aromas is malty with some nuts and hay. Not complex beer, but pleasant.

Tasted @KBC Den Bosch 2011. Was very eager to taste this one, since my regular tasting companion already had tasted this one, and i didn’t.
Could use a bit more alcohol to give it some extra body. Still a very nice IPA though.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 Hazy muddy brown and big foamy head. The hops stand out most - grass and floral, but also bread and mild yeast. Definitely not as fragrant as some IPA?s. Taste is full bitterness with and dry, although some sweets pop out later as well as some malts. Better than I expected, very drinkable, yet a bit one sided. Like the phonetic spelling of IPA (in Dutch/Leidsch). :) (6,25 EUR, 75cl bottle, also on tap at the brewer’s open day)
