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.

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!

Bijl (118) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2016
Donker geel tegen oranje kleur, troebel, schuimkraag is geel/crčme en blijft behoorlijk lang. Mooie IPA om te zien.....aardig wat CO2 in de weer in het glas. Aroma: Citrus, grapefruit, pijnboom, en tropisch fruitig. Een florale geur en bij opwarming moutig. De smaak volgt aardig met Mout, citrus/grape, iets kruidig en grassig, denne en bloemen. Ook duidelijk een bekende gist die ’t IJ vaker gebruikt. Een aardige hopbitter en fruitigheid in de afdronk. Redelijk wat koolzuur, en een aardige body. Zeker niet waterig! Prima IPA!

Fules (489) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 2, 2016
Közepes, tartós hab, homályos, borostyán szín. Sok a lebegő anyag. Visszafogott, ipás illatok, némi édes, grapefruitos aromával. Gyenge, ipás ízvilág, csak a keserűje markáns. Utóíze erős keserű, icipici gyantával. Közepesen testes.

Golden yellow colour. Medium, white head. Herbal notes, malts, hints of fruit in the aroma. Soapy first taste, hints of barley, hints of apricots. Citrussy finish. Rather medium bodied, medium carbonated, not a good IPA.

Gangstergafje (593) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2016
The beer links like a proper IPA. The color of the beer is amber colored. The beer has a nice cloudiness over it. On top of the beer a rather rough layer of white foam is formed, which tends to collapse rather quick. The smell of the beer is nice. It has a nice citrusy hop aroma, with a sweet tropical twist. The smell is subtle, it doesn’t have that harsh bitterness an IPA can have sometimes. It has a little rasin touch to it. There are also some pinches of pine. The taste is better than the smell. It has loss of hops, fresh citrus aromas, and a lovely bitter punch. The taste is in good balance, bitterness and fruity sweetness are perfectly together. There is also s little resinous flavor and some pine tones. The beer is a bit more full of flavor than most IPA’s. It’s not just that citrusy hop flavor, there is more to it. Quite nice.
