3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,33 l bottle from Gall & Gall Zutphen, NL, best before 2/3/2017. Clear, reddish amber with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, tan to white head. Intense, fruity-resiny aroma of passion fruit, mango, honey and pine. Sweetish, fruity-resiny taste of passion fruit, mango, honey and pine, followed by a fairly lasting, medium bitter (92 IBU?!) finish with hints of grapefruit. Medium to full body, creamy to oily texture, soft carbonation. Perfectly balanced and very harmonic with fresh, exotic flavours. No hints of alcohol and absolutely not as bitter as expected. Dangerously drinkable!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from de Mitra in Gorinchem. The beer is amber colored and pours a large broken white colored head, with livingly CO2. The aroma is a palate of hops in the first place, to be followed by citrus, grapefruits, mango and other tropical fruits. The taste is full bodied, it starts light sweet with tones from the tropical fruits and citrus to change into a real nice bitterness from the hops which is not annoying. The finish is full, round and hoppy. Really nicely done, just as I want it.

Really strong IPA: full of bitterness, hop and aroma. Like it, but it lacks some surprises.
