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.

Aroma. Smells mainly of caramel with some slight hoppiness. Appearance. Pours a nice earthy red colour. Taste. Toffee and bread flavours really some to come through here, though with not too much sweetness, considering the lack of hoppiness i wouldn’t really call it an ipa. Overall. I bought this beer wanting to try a new ipa, whilst bean a good beer it certainly doesn’t deliver in the ipa department.

Bottle from local AH, BB 12-11-16, large sample. Almost clear orange to amber color, medium rocky head. Aroma of some caramel and toffee, bit sulphury, bit flowery hop. Bready malt in taste, faint bitterness. A beer for the IPA aficionado? Lmao.

No body, watery but ok. It lacks a bit of a kick, you'll normally expect from An IPA. Its more like a heavy pilsener

Rune (10533) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 24, 2016
330ml bottle from a six-pack, bought at the tax-free store at Gardermoen Airport. Clear amber coloured body. Bubbly, low beige head, clingy lacing. Rather sweet aroma of dried fruits. Taste of caramel malts, dried fruits and bread. More sweet than bitter to the ending. Anonymous for an IPA (shared with friends, hotel room Islington London 11.04.2016).

Is this really an IPA? Malty sweet broth with no hoppiness whatsoever. Sad that great Dutch beers won’t find space on the shelves in supermarket but this beer treks halfway across the globe.

Bottled from AH in Mestreech. Color is dark amber with frothy beige head. Fruity nose. Aroma is fruity, herbs and sweet malts. Flavour is fruity, floral, with dry soft hops and nice aftertaste. Nice brew, Kiwis!
