3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the Bierkoning BB 21-8-2014 (just in time!). Neck was absolutely filthy, heavy yeasty crust everywhere, hard not to get any in the glass. Anyhow, poured a murky gold pour with white head. Aroma is really hoppy, intense citrusy, piney hops, orange peel. Taste is very bitter, citrus rind, pine, resinous, very well done hoppiness, a bit over the top on the bitterness. I can only imagine what it was with all the super fresh hops when this was just released, it still smells and tastes quite good, so it must have been pretty phenomenal. Would love to drink some more of this fresh.

A pretty good IPA, very yeasty and thick, more like a hoppy witbier. Some citrus and grass. Tried at the Fab Friday event in Utrecht with Nick in 2014.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy golden color, topped with a decent off color head.
The malty aroma is complemented by some fruits, citruses and slight yeast.
The taste is fruity with very decent bitterness in the end.
I guess it’s OK, but nothing special.

Bottle@Home. Light fruity, malty, grassy aroma with a hint of dough. Hazy, yellow, off-white head, good lace. Sweet, very bitter, fruity, light grassy, to harsh bitterness actually in the finish. Good body though.

Troebel licht amberkleurig met veel gistvlokken.. Wel een goeie kraag. Geweldig hoparoma, erg fruitig, lychee en ananas. Smaak ook erg fruitig en ietwat peperig. Goeie IPA!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ De Molen. Pours a hazy golden beer with a small creamy white head on top. Aroma is citric, floral and yeasty. Flavor has some sour, Brett touches, very bitter in the finish. Rather unbalanced, goes from light sour to very bitter in an instant, which is quite a shock. Very interesting, but not too good of an IPA to me unfortunately. Still okay.
