On tap @ Maximus. The aroma has lychee, grapefruit, some grass, little biscuit malts. Bit hazy, golden-copper coloured beer with a medium, white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter and has tropical fruits, biscuit malts, hint of caramel. Almost clean and quite dry in the finish. Good.

Alengrin (3865) - 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...

Vili (201) - FINLAND - FEB 28, 2015
33cl bottle. Clear golden pour with minimal white head, average lacing. Aroma is fresh spruce, resin and bread. Taste is heavily bitter, fresh with full body. Aftertaste is quite short, but nicely balanced to the bitter, hoppy finish. Really nice and well-made beer.

ZodiacM (502) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2015
Flesje gekocht @Appie Heijn. Geurig hoppig bier met de nadruk op tropisch fruit, daardoor iets zoeter. Qua smaak ook, een mooie balans tussen zoet en bitter en het bloemige van de hop. Lekkere IPA uit Utrecht!

Bottle 33 cl. Pours an almost clear golden, with a lacing white head. Lovely complex citrusy aroma, some great aroma hops in there. Medium body, sweet malts and fruit. And again great aroma hops. The finish is not overly bitter though. One of the best Dutch IPA’s ever. 220214
