COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The city and province of Utrecht has got a great history (and future) of brewing beer. It deserves a beer that shows our appreciation and what more could we do than make this Utrecht Strong Ale. Big hops dominate the aroma and big malts support them in taste. Put your hands up for Utrecht, we love that city!

What can I say but that this is an awesome beer! The smell, look are classic. The taste is right there, not too strong and not too weak. The palate is really smooth and enjoyable. I would definitely get this beer again.

Double IPA-like beer with a very hoppy taste that kicks in hard. The malty backbone give the beer a grainy and full basis. Nice.
