Tap @KBC Den Bosch 2011. I was eager to taste this one and it didnít let me down at all. A very nice IPA. The mouthfeel could be a bit better, to me it lacked body. Other than that itís a great IPA.

330ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Biscuity, caramel malty aroma, some straw, some pine. Taste is bitter hoppy, minimally tart, some pine, a nuttily touch, cautious caramel malty background, a touch of biscuit. Undeveloped, unexhibited hop, slightly unbalanced, inharmonic, overall boring.

On tap @ Arendsnest. This definitely building up some expectations ad I have been on the wander all day in Amsterdam trying to locate a good hoppy Americanized hoppy punchy IPA on tap, but so far all I have ended up with is 4 mediocre and one bad totally classic English styles one. Yeah, you better deliver now you! It starts off nicely with a light cloudy, or more deep blurry golden orange looking beer, it has a really good looking super lacing and lingering white head. So, the nose: NOOOOOO! ANOTHERíS ENGLISH STYLE!? Not sure what Iíll do now. Itís basically dominated but caramel, sweet malts, burned honey puffs and fruity eastern tones this. Where is the punch? Where are the hops!? Nutty sweet aromas. Thatís a downer, but it does not smell bad in any way, just not how I want it to! Thank god it had some citrus in the taste. Itís really mineral waterish but definitely some citrus. The oily in the mouth and itís wrapped in a soft to average carbonation level. Not sure if I should cry or laugh. Iím neither right now, but I just want a good hoppy American (thatís USA) IPA! This is not that in any way! Iím going to Beer Temple again. At least they had something like that there. 07.03.2014
