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.

jerohen (2133) - Bussum, - MAY 26, 2012
Bottled from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Very hazy orange-brown colored, lots of tiny yeast particles, off-white thick and lasting head. Hops in aroma (of course), but also caramel notes, malts, some spices, and the t IJ yeast is definitely there. Yeasty flavor, hoppy, caramel malts, developing flavor from initially somewhat sweet towards a more bitter and dry finish. Dry and warming (thatís surprising) finish. The t IJ fingerprint is definitely there, a very original angle on the IPA style.

Bottle 0.33 l, gift from the Netherland.
Złote, mętnawe piwo o puszystej pianie oraz przyjemnym, owocowym aromacie. W smaku pełne, ze słodową podbudową, cytrusowe z wyrazistą, chmielową goryczką na finiszu.

luttonm (3976) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2016
At ít IJ, Amsterdam. Clears gold-yellow. Tall white foam. Balanced hop aroma. Fairly bitter body, creamy overall. Crisp, dry and bitter. Amber malt, a little caramel. A bit off for me, bitter and sharp.

Konfuzzi (6) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2016 does not count
Super Bier. Erinnert eher an ein belgisches Bier, da der Nachgeschmack erfreulich fruchtig ist. Was das Label mit dem Bier zu tun hat, erschlieŖt sich mir nicht.

bastarda (369) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2016
bottle kindly given by Thomas; a very Belgian interpretation of the style, reminded me even a bit of Taras Boulba or Wadesda no. 5 and 6. Aromas of apricots with a strong earthy aspect, even little hints of barnyard, a bit of hay, and a bit of pink grapefruit, but not a lot. Suprised that Citra and Cascade should bring those aromas - or was it the yeast? Anyway, a great beer that gets better with every sip. More apricots and herbs in taste, earthy/grapefruit bitterness, very well balanced. Very good!

MayumiH (715) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2016
Bottle at home. Deep hazy golden orange colour. Hops, grapefruit and orange citrus. Solid malt backbone with a long bitter citrus finish. Tasty.

Vells (1338) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - MAR 19, 2016
Disappointing. Feels like all fresh hops are gone, some fainted fruitines, bit weird messy vegies, luscious silky texture, quite close to gone off beer. Light sweetness with light bitterness. Can finish, but..

FatPhil (12736) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 12, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2016 330ml bottle (Alus Tirgus, Riga)
Smells of asparagus first, then unripe sundew melow, the tasteless watery non-sweet part next to the rind. Tastes just the same. Later a pulsey graininess. Taste too. Messy. Way too vegetal in several different ways. Bad brew, or at least bad batch.
