Vaiz (4182) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle @ cafe de la gare. Hazy golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is fruity hops, yeasty and slightly spicy. Flavor is somewhat bitter, fruity hops and quite yeasty with a faint hint of wet dog. Still, quite a decent ipa.

Alengrin (4163) - BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2016 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...

Burnished golden color out of the bottle with a fluffy white head. Fresh bright hop floral and citrus hop nose. Well balanced malt profile with tasty grapefruit citrus and floral hop flavors. Well made, if standard now a days, IPA.

Really well balanced, crazy pine aroma, lots of bready body, golden appearance. Tried with Nick at the brewery in 2014.

sunevdj (3846) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 25, 2015
Bottle in Berlin. Pours a clearish golden with a small head. Sweet and bitter with hoppy aromas of spruce and fruits. Also aromas of pale malts. Not quite balanced. Medium bodied. Medium to high carbonation. Bitter finish.

Habanero (3789) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2014
Bottled. Pours clear, amber with an average off-white head. Aroma of citrus, peach, caramel an piney notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A nice IPA.

MrHangover (3766) - 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.

minutemat (3744) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2015
330ml bottle from Saveur-Biere.fr. Pours clear amber with small off-whit ehead. Underlying malts and bitter tones with less hops than expected given the name. In that sense was a little disappointing and not a lot going on to really distinguish itself.

mile (3726) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and floral fruitiness, some citrus - grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light floral fruitiness, some grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and fruitiness, some citrus - grapefruit hoppyness. OK IPA - could be drier and have less caramel.
