Bottle. Amber color with minimal head. Weighty at 5.5% abv, but this IPA doesn’t pack much of a punch. Some mild hops and light sweetness, but flavour is less than 3-dimensional. Average, boring.

Dark Golden Color, almost Amber; Clear; Small and quickly dissipating white Head - at first strong malt aroma, sweetness; then hoppy, herbal aroma, light bitterness - medium body, slick texture, average to rather soft carbonation - long, bitter finish.

Disappointment. Malt dominates. Not comparable to regular IPA. Decent beer, but should not called IPA. Might be that this is what IPA used to be - but now ....

Bottle at home from backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy dark golden/light amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, grainy, light citrus, light herbal, toasted bread, thinner, not much to get excited about here, not sure about age, pass.

See Dark gold, 1 finger frothy off white head Smell Hops, doughy maltiness and lemon/citrus Taste Tangy, crisp bitterness. Sucks your mouth in a bit. Not much malt to begin with but develops more as you drink on. Hints of citrus. Mouthfeel Light carbonation. Crisp and dry finish. Pleasant IPA, not heavily hopped like American IPAs but nicely hoppy and bitter.

JonBob (3) - Holland, Michigan, USA - JUN 15, 2014 does not count
Aroma: subdued hop aroma, malt dominates the nose. Subtle grapefruit citrus but mainly what hops come thru are very piney. Appearance: part for the style. slightly haze honey - orange color. Taste: very malty. Bready, toasty, grainy, pilsnery sweetness balanced delicately by an assertive piney hoppiness. Overall: medium-low bodied full-flavored English IPA. great representation of a refined old-world IPA. I feel like I drinking a bit of history.

Like a very good best bitter...........which is great. Let’s not put IPA on every label though folks.

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle at Special Brews. Pours a hazy golden brown color with a very small white head on it. Nose is grassy, but seems slightly old, which is unsurprising given the distance it’s been imported. Taste is slightly bitter, but nothing remarkable. OK.

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle 500 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 5.5% Deep copper orange colour on the body, crystal clear, with lots of activity in it, and a small white head on top, quite thick but also kind of froathy, very good retention though. Light lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet, lots of malts and caramel with some fruity notes surfacing after a swirl of the glass. Taste of caramel, english hops, cookie dough, faint alcohol, iron, malts. Mildly bitter aftertaste with good enough duration. Medium thin body, soft carbonation, moderate dry on the palate. Overall okay, more sweet than bitter though, it doesn’t really leaves an impression.
