Nice round composition with both aroma and taste in balance. There is quite some bitterness in the aftertaste due to the added hops. Nice beer!

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.

One of the best IPAs I have ever had. The hop tones are plentyful and linger on in the aftertaste. Enjoyable with every sip.
