3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
