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 (2054) - 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 (that’s surprising) finish. The t IJ fingerprint is definitely there, a very original angle on the IPA style.

inbirraveritas (1300) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 14, 2015
On tap. Somewhat opal golden one with a stabile whipped creamy snow white head on it. Complex smell of mango, pineapples, florals... Aroma brings the same added by bread and distinct herbs, mouthfeel is slick to syrupy. Lingering, bittersweet, gently warming finish. Liked it.

veceo (729) - CROATIA - APR 13, 2015
Hazy golden color, huge white head, creamy and uneven. Lots of lacing. Aroma of pine, herbs, citrus, some fruitiness. Taste of grapefruit, caramel. Smooth, solid amount of bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation. Tasty.

Robe jaune peu trouble, particulée.Mousse blanche, de fines bulles persistantes.Amertume d’herbes assez sèche mais toutefois équilibrée par un corps rond et puissant sans être trop gourmand.Ipa amère, aux notes d’herbes.Pas désagréable, désaltérant, frais.

tomekboniek (162) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Butelka. Barwa bursztynowa, zmętniona. Piana biała, wysoka, która szybko redukuje się do nieznaczącej wielkości. Ładnie oblepia szło. Aromat ziołowy, kwiatowy, lekkie cytrusy, tropiki. Smak ziołowy, kwiatowy.Wysoka, zalegająca i męcząca grejpfrutowa goryczka, wysokie wysycenie, przeciętna pijalność.

paulvanpelt (362) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2015
Goudgeel bier met witte kraag. Duidelijk hoppig, citrus komt goed naar voren. Lekker bitter en zacht in de mond. Volle body. Erg lekkere IPA.

weark (397) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Bouteille achetée chez Erzbierschof - De couleur dorée un peu trouble, une belle mousse blanche et crémeuse qui dure longtemps et marque bien le verre - Au nez des arômes fruité de lychee, de mangue, de houblon frais un peu herbacé, quelques notes de malt pâle apparaissent par la suite et quelques trace de levure aussi - En bouche on sent bien ces notes herbacée du houblon frais, quelques notes résineuse, très peu de fruits, trop masqué par ces notes herbacée dommage - Corps léger, amertume forte, carbonation pétillante, finale amère et résineuse - IPA pas très bien équilibrée à mon goût et trop herbacée

amber, smells of elderflower, cannabis and grapefruit. Bitterness ist quite present and lasting on the palate, but very pleasant. Definetely one of the better IPAs!
