33cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Pours almost clear golden with a white head. Fresh hoppy aroma with notes of tropical fruits, citrus and hints of pale malt, herbs and pine. Medium sweet with nice hoppy notes and a pleasant bitterness. Tasty and refreshing IPA!

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.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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...
