3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 23/06/16, at Black Door, 20140906) The beer poured golden and rather clear. Its head was quite large, white and it lasted long. Aroma had fruitiness, tangerine, herbalness, pine and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, herbalness, sweetness, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. Because of the herbalness the overall feeling was somewhat medicine like and that was not pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!
