4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 Bottled, courtesy of caesar. Orange/brown colored, almost no head. Absolutely fantastic fruity and flowery nose, hops all the way, lots of Cascade, but also more fruity notes (probably the Galena then). To my surprise the use of large amount of hop does not result in an extremely bitter flavor, which is probably because of the big malty backbone, creating a thick complex and very well balanced brew. Lasting bitter finish. I generally don’t like these massively hopped beers because of the astringent bitterness, but when balanced like this you get an absolute masterpiece. Rooie Dop USA, i absolutely love it!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Belmont Party Supply / Dayton OH --- dated 31/03/14 --- Hazy amber brown color, bubbly beige head that stays around a cover, mottled lace covering. Taste is smooth malt that moves through light carbonation to smooth light hops. Maybe this was bigger when it was fresh - now it is a smooth light (not 9.1% anymore) malty brew. My bottle only labels it "Rooie Dop Utrecht Ale," but the specs match on everything else.

Bottle at home in London. Pours rich amber with a frothy, lasting beige head. Lots of hearty ripe fruit in the nose, plenty of toffee, fruit cake, figs. Medium to heavy sweet flavour with sturdy bread, creamy toffee, tons of Dane fruit cake, light piney bitterness. Full bodied, oily and chewy, with fine carbonation. Lightly warming to finish, chewy and gooey, with raisins, more fruit cake, some dried cherry, dates and figs. Really rich and tasty.

Bottle. Quite assertive hoppiness, grassy, citrusy and resiny, mixing well with massive malty backbone and rather full body of this beer. Dried fruits, raisins, light caramel. Surprisingly easy drinking, alcohol hidden completely. Very good.

Amber, low head. Aroma honey, molasses, candi sugar, caramel and fruitiness (ambivalent). Palate smooth, low carbonation. Bit too sweet for me, but I like the typical dutch candi sugar/tofee taste. Bit cloying, otherwise a good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Közepes, tartós hab, barna szín. Illata intenzív, malátás alapon markánsan citrusos, kissé karamelles és picikét gyantás. Íze markánsan keserű, friss zöldfűszeres, citrusos és picit gyantás. Hosszú utóíze kesernyés, és gyantás, kicsi gyümölcsösséggel. Testes, de nem nehéz, kissé száraz érzetű. Az alkoholt sikerült teljesen elrejteni.
