First off, its a great label. Golden beer with a bit of a hazy to it. Sticky white head. Herbal hop nose with a bit of soap to it. There is a wheat flavor in here with a hint of banana and lots of dusty floral hops. There is a bit of grapefruit rind bitterness in the finish. I’m also getting lots of soap. Interesting take on an IPA

tåkete ferskenfarget med fint off-white skum. Duft av sitron, granbar og brennesle. Brennesle og granbar følger i smaken sammen med lett karamell. Intens bitterhet som følges av en tørr avslutning.

Bottle share at Kenny’s 20K. As ’Brouwerij ’t IJ IPA’, 7%. Naked woman logo. Hazy orange, decent foamy dense off-white head, thick droopy lacing. Aroma is floral, pastry, sweet, plastic. Body is light, tingly carbonation, quite foamy. Taste is biscuity malt, floral, tangy fruits, dry finish. Quite nice.

Have I got the wrong beer? Mine smells unexcitingly "Belgian" and just tastes really wheaty with banana and soapy herb. Not that nice and nothing like the blurb or other reviews. Genuinely think there may have been a mislabelled bottle in this batch. Shame as I was looking forward to this one.

bottle - Pours hazy copper with a two finger white head. It has a citrus hop aroma. The flavor has big hop bitterness with citrus and floral notes. This brew is medium bodied and is definitely in the modern American style of IPAs.
