Blonde dorée limpide, mousse blanche moyenne. Nez très houblonnée fruité : agrumes (citron, pamplemousse), fruits de la passion, mangue. Bouche houblonnée : citron, pamplemousse, fruits de la passion, arrière gout de caramel. Une très bonne IPA, à défaut d’être originale.

Alengrin (3221) - 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...

33cl bottle at the Belgian Beer Café Olivier (Leiden, The Netherlands). IBU 50, EBC 80, 6% alcohol. Brouwerij Maximus is one of my favorite Dutch breweries, and this brew shows why. A somehow hazy, golden to caramel colour and some white foam. What a lovely nose! Great citrus and pomelo flavours, very full and rich. The omnipresent fruits are assisted by lovely hoppy aroma’s. The mouth is dry, so very dry, and the finish is long. The taste maybe is a bit flat - I won’t give maximum scores. But you can keep on drinking this great IPA. A beer to remember, that’s for sure.

Butelka 0,33l z datą do 12.08.16. Piwo barwy złotej, opalizujące. Piana niska ale ładnie koronuje na szkle. Aromat owocowy: owoce tropikalne, ananas, cytrusy. W smaku chmielowość i cytrusy. Goryczka świetnie zbalansowana. Bardzo dobre piwo...

JulienHuxley (4230) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
Tap at Arendsnest. Hazy gold pour with super frothy white head. Aroma is quite citrusy/piney, very good hop aroma, enticing (simcoe would be my guess?). Taste is bitter, nice clean maltiness, light honey maybe just a touch of caramel, fruity hop flavor, citrus zest. Palate is med bodied with -light-med carbonation, very refreshing.

Ibrew2or3 (7461) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2014
33cl bottle pours with a clear deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a modest bright white head of foam. The aroma offers up floral hops, citrus hard candy and a bit of a peach like note. The taste begins with a nice degree of bitter grapefruit hops and tangerine. It slowly picks up a slender sweet maltiness and a faint berry hard candy like note that is sometimes there and sometimes not. Into the finish the bitter citrus hops fade some as it gets a little herbal, floral and grassy with an increased sense of hop flavor. Pretty nice IPA.
