COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our I.P.A. is a dark-blonde beer with an emphatic, hoppy flavour. We add hops to the beer during the maturing process as well as the brewing to produce delicious aromas of flowers and grapefruit. A beer with a fruity, bitter aftertaste that lingers for a long time.

Bosskie (399) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2014
Opaque, dark red-brwon beer with a white head. Smell is grapefruit, fruity cherries. Dry and salty. Subtle touch of minerals and leather. Taste is resin bitter sour with grapefruit peels. Salty watery finish. Quite refreshing. Subtle peachy sweetness.

Grzesiek79 (3199) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Dosc solidne piwo IPA rodem z Amsterdamu. Na uwage i pochwale zasluguje tu wyglad. Przepiekna czapa piany, spora i trwala, mocno zbrudzone i metne piwo, kolor zgnilo pomaranczowo rozowy. Wnet przypomina Imperial IPA. Z zapachem juz nieco slabo, owszem wyczuwa sie lesny zapach chmielu i szyszek, w smaku lekko zywiczne i trawiaste, smak chmielowy wytrawny bez slodowosci, alkohol nie wyczuwalny ale nieco w glowie niestety tak.

This smells sharp and hoppy. It is a fruity IPA but not in a sweet way. Simple but delicious aroma. Grapefruit! A lot grapefruit with a little bit of banana a finish of dry grass. I like the finish. Nice bitter on the back of my tongue.

JorisPPattyn (7908) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2014
Good dense & fine yellowish head over hazy golden ochre, very lively carbonated beer. For a couple of moments very fruity nose, but also resin, solvent and banana. After those moments, only the solvent and banana remain. Bitterish to bitter, again resin, solvent, even a tad metallic. There is some decent hoppy bitterness, but the other, Weizen-like onslaught goes on. Yeast & wheat-like slickness, better bodied, oily. Very discernible carbonation. If it werenít for those fleeting moments upon opening, Iíd have this one down as a Weizen(bock) , if tasted blind. Something like H-P Drechsler is doing at Schneider. But is there even any wheat, in here? Weird.

Şişe, istanbul.. Renk bulanık koyu portakal.. Bardakta oldukça gazlı, köpük ise dolgun, kremamsı, 2-3 parmak arası kalıcı.. Koku şeebetçiotu acılığının yanında hafif otsu, topraksı ısındıkça hafif meyve kokuları fark ediliyor, çok kompleks bulmadım.. Tadım ilk önce hafif tatlı malt hissediliyor, ardından ağırlıklı ve kalıcı şerbetçiotu acılığının damakta vurucu.. Keyifli bir ipa, iyi ama süper değil...

30/VII/14 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ the seaside - BB: II/2015 (2014-857)

Little cloudy dark blond beer, big creamy off-white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. aroma: fruity, bit soapy, spicy, coriander, even a tad of smoke. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: soapy, bitter start, sweet malts, some citrus, dry bitterness. Aftertaste: bit smoky, soapy bitterness, unpleasant, some spiced, overripe fruits. Meh, highly unimpressed by this one. :-(

Saeglopur (326) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - AUG 21, 2014
Draught at the ít Ij brewpub, Amsterdam. Dark golden, clear body, with a medium, creamy, slightly yellow head. Aroma of citrus, orange, passion fruit and some other tropical fruits, grass, biscuit, candy. Taste with about the same aromas. Moithfeel is medium, oily, with a medium carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, slightly dry, with lemon zest, grass and some fruits. Nice one. Overall nothing special, but a quaffable, fruity and well balanced.IPA.
