jookos (3080) - FINLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle@ahven. Coppery clear. Hoppy caramelly nose with pines, some aprocot, overall sort of sweet mushy fruits. Nice med light body. Bit sharp bittering but ok. Citrus hoppy flavour, bitter, dry finish. Very ok, but not extraordinary.

MrHangover (2996) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden beer with a decent amount of white head on top. Aroma is citric and pines, very usual for an IPA. Flavour is moderately bitter and has a greasy mouthfeel. Decent, average IPA, nothing extraordinary.

Alengrin (2815) - BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2015
My first beer from this new Utrecht brewery, an American-style India pale ale. Egg-white, moussy, stable head of medium thickness, supported by strong sparkling; colour a warm pinkish orange, slightly hazy, reminding me of a sunrise in September... Lovely aroma of citrussy hops and tons of fruit, forwarding impressions of fresh orange and mandarin, pink grapefruit, honey, banana, caramel candy, sweet white grapes, fresh mango, strawberries, vanilla extract, apple cake, fruit yoghurt, burnt wood, roasted peanuts, pine needles, toasted bread... Vividly fruity onset, mango, persimmon and dried apricot, sharp and minerally carbonation, hop bitterness setting in almost immediately (i.e. sooner than expected), only to increase towards the finish, over a backbone of nutty, subtly toasted and lightly bready malts, smooth and light on the tongue but not lacking in body; some spicy yeastiness accentuates the long, bone dry, peppery and floral, tonic water- and grapefruit-like hop bitterness which will stick with you for a long time. Both florally aromatic hops and the deep, leafy background bittering hops are there and in perfect balance. Totally quenching and elegant. But then, I’m a sucker for IPAs...

Desverger (2794) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle@Papsø - pours a golden colour with a small white head. Fruity and sweet hoppy and malty aroma and taste, citrus fruity, caramel malts, pine, grassy and nice floral character to this, and good bitter finish.
