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 (2077) - 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.

R4N5H (386) - SINGAPORE - OCT 4, 2015
25cl draft at Het Elfde Gebod, Amsterdam on 23-Sep-2015. Hazy amber colour with a decent sized white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and sweet malt. Medium body and carbonation. Flavour of sweet tropical fruit, malts and a really nice floral hoppy bitter finish.

rayaron (837) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle thanks to MrHangover. Hazy golden-orange with small white head. The aroma has notes of tropical fruits (lychee), citrus and some candy. Sweetish flavor, mild hoppy bitterness, some caramel, a bit piney with notes of tropical fruits and some grapes. Medium-bodied. A bit old but still OK.

Zlotta (445) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2015
0.33 l bottle at De Balie, Amsterdam. Clear, golden orange with a creamy, white head. Fruity-grassy aroma of grapefruit, mango and passion fruit. Slightly bitter, grassy-fruity taste of mango, passion fruit and grapefruit, followed by a medium long, rather bitter and very dry finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very fruity, very refreshing, good!

Bottle (so I could get the label) and on tap at various places in Amsterdam. Medium orange, off white head. Tropical fruit (tangerine) and lightly sweet malts, moderately bitter finish.

Mep3222 (937) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Malty floral hop aroma. Taste is a malty full flavored IPA, with a piney bitter finish. Descent IPA. A little too piney bitter hoppy for me and the maltiness makes it almost close to "chewy" but not quite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamaty (1431) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 18, 2015
Ambar, turbia, de dos dedos de espuma, de aspecto jabonoso. Deja película todo el tiempo. Aroma acaramelado, floral. Más tarde aparecen frutas tropicales. En boca, buen cuerpo, gas perfecto, punzante al final acentuando el amargor, y con un sabor eminentemente lupulado donde persisten las flores junto con pomelo. Amargor importante sin exagerar y un postgusto en el que queda un tono acaramelado, con notas florales. Muy sabrosa. Gran IPA.

Nez: Malté, agrumes Bouche: Maltée, pamplemousse, orange, herbacée, épicée C’est très fruité notamment sur les agrumes avec une amertume plutôt légère mais qui reste longuement en bouche avec une sécheresse dans le final. Une bière excellente mais à boire fraîchement brassée.
