tderoeck (7253) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2014
11/VII/14 - 33cl bottle from Biernavigatie (webshop, NL) @ home - BB: 22/I/16 (2014-808)

Clear orange beer, creamy white irregular head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots of exotic fruits, some alcohol, bit grassy, passion fruits, pineapple, sweet caramel malts. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit of sweet malts, bitter hops, some citrus, grassy, bit medicinal bitterness. Aftertaste: very bitter and dry, bit of grapefruit, grassy hops, not balanced enough, fruity, nor piny, just dry and bitter finish. Ending could have been much better and was expecting way more from it, given the aroma.

jmgreenuk (6506) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle at Rootz at the Harbour, Den Haag. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is citrus hop. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a huge grassy hop, light pepper spice, light citrus, light metallic palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a bubbly mouthfeel. One of the better IPA’s being brewed in the Netherlands. The big Belgian yeast aroma is not there and they threw the hop bucket into this. Well done guys!

A fine finger thick white head, on top of a light hazy golden body. Fine lacing. Nice tropical fruity, toffee and mild grapefruit hoppy aroma. Quite fresh and nice. Medium body. Moderate sweet, and a fresh bitterness. Malty, citric, tropical fruity notes and some grassy notes. Decent nice IPA.
