4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 (that’s surprising) finish. The t IJ fingerprint is definitely there, a very original angle on the IPA style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky orange beer, white head. Sweet, yeasty, hefeweizen mixed with IPA aroma. Medium body. A bit weird grassy bitterness at first which turns into a more grape fruity type of a taste. This taste is mixed with a taste of yeast. A bit weird but different IPA experience. Not bad but a bit off style.

Dutch american style Ipa. Aroma is quite fresh: tropical fruits and flowers. Enjoyable bitterness. Well executed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mousse généreuse à pores larges, couleur ambrée aux reflets dorés, trouble, cette IPA dévoile au nez des notes intenses de fleurs, de pamplemousse et de légères traces de fruits confits et d’alcool. L’amertume en attaque persiste longtemps. La douceur du malt apparaît ensuite mais de manière plutôt discrète. L’alcool et l’amertume semblable à celle d’une peau de pamplemousse dominent en finale. Belle explosion amère rappelant les West Coast IPA.

A bit different India pale ale, not as fresh as more "American style" beers.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I love this beer ... can’t fault the flavour. One of the best I’ve found to balance intense hop aroma, flavour and bitterness. Fantastic hop aroma, tastes wonderful and the complexity builds on your palate, getting better and better as you sup down the glass, have another and go on your way home. One of my favourites.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden yellow beer with foamy and moderately sized head on top. Aroma has a wheat type of feel, with citrus, grapes, flowers and yeast. Resembles a lot of weissbeer, yeasty flavors and citrus & grapefruit and flowery hop flavors. Medium bitterness. Full body with crispy carbonation. A little different variation of IPA nevertheless enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Drinking date: 15 March 2014) Hazy, golden-blonde coloured beer. Layer of thick foam which stays on the beer. Nice aroma of citrus hops, raisins and bread. Aroma could be more powerfull. The beer looks delicious. Nice bitter taste, but not too bitter. The taste is good/nice, but not special. Grapefruit and pineapple in the taste and aftertaste. Bitter and spicy aftertaste. The mouthfeel is good: a bit thick with a lively carbonation. Overall, this is a good beer, with a nice taste, but it could be more powerfull. Both the aroma and the taste (especially the aroma) should be more outspoken. However, I enjoyed it, so I give it the total score of 3.6
