COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There’s plenty of rich maltiness from this Pale Ale and higher-kilned malt combination. The Cascade and special New Zealand hops create a fruity aroma with a dose of bitterness to drive home the hop flavour. A beer for the IPA aficionado with a distinctly Kiwi style. Perfect for a moment spent catching up with old mates.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear copper to amber with a small to medium white head and an aroma of grassy hops, toffee, lemon and sweet malts. Totally forgettable beer.

androman (1697) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2016
33cl bottle at home from local supermarket, Maarssen. Nose is malty , fruity, lagerish. Body is clear golden, head is small, tan, frothy, average lasting, good lacing. Aroma is malty, honey, chemical. Medium sweet, light bitter. Finish is medium lasting malty light bittersweet. Light body, slick texture, average carbonation. Easy, refreshing, average malty lagerish, not that bad but nothing to do with IPA, why the hell is this imported to the Netherlands?

rdb84 (548) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2016
Amber golden with stable head. A: sweet malts, light citrus, reminds of Speciale Belge. T: relatively crisp but still none of the hop-heaviness that one would expect for this style. Some fruity elements, mostly citrus, lime, but very faint. Medium bitter development, malty finish. Speciale Belge with fruity elements, but definitely no IPA in the modern sense.

An okay IPA that I picked up at an Albert Heijn. Has a pretty stale aftertaste. Golden with a ton of carbonation.

Koperkleurig, te dun schuim. Weinig geur. Ook koperachtige smaak, verder aardig at best.

Beerhunter111 (16457) - Hasborn, GERMANY - JUN 30, 2016
33cl bottle from a trade with Douberd! Pours clear amber colour with a small good lasting off-white head. Aroma of mild hops, citrus, caramel. Taste of mild citrus hops, spruce, toasted malt, boring!

erickok (5272) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 24, 2016
Very underwhelming beer, especially since it’s very mildly hopped and quite simple too. Clean enough fermentation, but not any complexity. Sometimes simple is nice, but for that it misses freshness of a satisfying bubble. No. (33cl bottle from Albert Heijn Leuven)

cagou007 (1004) - FRANCE - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle in Avignon-- Pours clear golden with thin white head. Nose is grassy. Aromas are herbal and spicy hops. Average carbonation, medium body. Medium bitter and grassy finish. A bit boozy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What’s in a name. Well if one is expecting an IPA, one should get an IPA. Nice amber colour but with a very small head. Lightly malted and hopped; a hint of peppery herbs. Little bite, little mouthfeel.
