thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2011
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.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2011
Bottle, kindly brought from Leiden by a colleague. Amber color. Grapefruit, hops and ripe melon in the aroma. Oily hops, ripe melon, lychee and pineapple in the flavor. Sweetish with a long oily hopbitter finish. Well rounded.

MrHangover (2452) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2011
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

Jerre (2413) - Waregem, BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2011
From bottle @ BB summerfestival 03.07.2011 Mechelen. Almost clear amber color, with a darkwhite head. Aroma nice fruit tones from the american hops. Medium body. Taste fruits and good hops bitterness. For me: best new beer on this festival this year.

JorisPPattyn (7816) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2011
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.

banii (236) - Trondheim, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2011
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.

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2011
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.

DutchDrebus (3876) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2011
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.

Ober (2807) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2011
Bottle @ KBC 2011. A clear amber/orange colored beer, with a beige head. The aroma of fruits with hop bitters. The taste of bitter and fruits like citrus. The aftertaste is bitter with some sweet.
