vincentvega72 (322) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2016 Brons van kleur, mooie schuimkraag die aan het glas blijft plakken. Hoppig & fruitig aroma, geur van appelsien, grapefruit. Lekkere smaak. Niet zo bitter als sommige ipa’s maar wel heerlijk van smaak met lange zoet-bittere afdronk. Heerlijke IPA.

MiP (15143) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle, 7%. Sweet and citric aroma, raisins, wood, acetic acid. Clear dark amber/brown colour. Small stable off-white head. The flavour has a teaish hop note as in some IPAs but apart from that I do not get much IPA from this beer. Nevertheless, it is a great beer. Good hoppiness and a mild, woody tartness. Well-balanced and full-bodied.

oliodnb (652) - ITALY - AUG 10, 2015
33cl bottle. Pours hazy amber with a thin beige head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, some citrus marmalade, some sweet fruits. Taste is similar with a medium final bitterness. Some light hoppy flavors. Medium body, medium to strong carbonation. Disappointing.

janubio (642) - SPAIN - AUG 1, 2015
Amber-copper colour, good head that leaves ring and lace. Aroma of chocolate, dried fruits, raisins, licorice, malt. Medium body, creamy palate, lively carbonation. Taste of chocolate, dried fruits, spices, malt, licorice, marzipan. It’s really good but I really can’t find any IPA character here.

Bottle, Lot 3013220514, dry-hopped with cascade. Pours hazy reddish amber, almost ruby. Smooth hoppy nose, yet not overpowered. Taste is on the fruity side, passionfruit and mango. Matching bitterness and sweetness. A well brewed beer indeed!
