Alengrin (2939) - 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...

Decent IPA with a kind of metallic and sharp bitterness to it, which makes it a little unpleasant to drink.

On tap @ Arendsnest. Hazy amber color. Dense head, white to off white. Aroma’s: Flowery (UK?) hops, some caramel malts. Flavor is moderately bitter with light malty sweetness. Medium bodied. Prickly carbonation. Finishes rather dry and bitter, not too harsh. Not too extreme, but balanced and tasty.
