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.

Amber colored, hazy beer, HUUUUUUUUGE head, seriously, after pouring one drop of beer in my glass it was filled to the brim with foam .... needed 15 mins. to empty the bottle in my glass .. this happens quite often with Rodenburg beers. Why?? Nevertheless a decent double IPA. Nice malty backbone and an intens lingering bitterness. Bit oily, good carbonation.

stekel (6) - - JAN 10, 2015 does not count
Nice beer , first you taste a lot of hop , it gives a nice sensation in your mouth. Bitterness at the end . Not for everybody i think.

Leighton (13012) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle on the train during the Isle of Wight Jolly. Pours hazy copper-gold with a huge, off-white head. The nose holds rich, bready malts, marmalade, caramel. Medium to big sweet flavor with bitter earth and grain, gooey pine, orange rind. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish, sticky, with notes of alcohol, high bitterness, more grains. Too bitter. Not great.

Houtmankutkop (28) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2014
Dikke slagroom schuimkraag die rommelig inzakt. Als sneeuw in een berm met pekel. Troebele Amber-honing kleur. Bitterheid blijft lang op de tong liggen. Ruikt naar gal. Toch lekker. Alweer...

Amberkleurig bier met ruime schuimkraag. Geuren van hop, mout, citrus, bloemen. Smaak is hoppig, bitterzoet, caramel, grapefruit. Over het algemeen zijn Imperial IPA’s wat complexer van smaak dan normale IPA’s en ook in dit geval is dat zo. De nasmaak is bitterzoet met een nasmaak die ik niet kan thuisbrengen. Maar zeker heel lekker!
