3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at The Fiddler, Den Haag. Poured a cloudy dark amber with a thin white head. The aroma is yeast and some more yeast. The flavour is medium bitter, yeasty and with lots of smooth malt and caramel on the palate. A very drinkable and refreshing beer with some interesting non Dutch-Belgian characteristics.

Bardzo dobre IPA z Holandii. Jeden z moich ulubionych hmieli tu zastosowano, a mianowicie Nelson Sauvin z NZ. Bardzo wyraznie w smaku, chmielowe i wytrawne w koncowce, zmetnienie takze spore, piana spora, wysoka i trzyma sie sporo czasu. Ciekawa i ladna biala etykieta z oczami, chyba kobiety:)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Hazy, golden with an orangey sheen, some floaties under a small and persistent off-white head, dryish fruity-hoppy (orange-peel) nose, yeast and a tinge of alcohol detectable; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied and quite soft; lingering citrussy-hoppy finish, some balancing sweetness detectable. Pretty good…

330 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a white head. Aroma of caramel, clove, floral notes and some spiciness. Flavour of caramel, floral hops, sweet dried apricot, pepper and some herbal notes. Some yeast as well. Medium bodied, high carbonation and a slightly warming, bitter and spicy finish. Good stuff.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours unclear golden in color with a foamy white head. Floral hops, notes of perfume and pale malts in aroma. Fruity, but more some grassy hoppy bitterness in taste. More sweet in finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
So, an IPA brewed by two ladies, cool. The squat little 33cl bottle pours out with a clear deep gold body that supports a near white inch tall head of foam that leaves behind some spotty lacing. The aroma is very yeasty and spicy and with very slight barnyard going on, that I’m liking by the way, as well as cantaloupe, peach and wet tangerine rind amid a couple of bars of hand soap. Interesting aroma that comes together for me. Wow, the taste is nearly the same with mix of firm yeasty spices, a mineral sense, cantaloupe and peach skin like notes. It gets to a slight resiny hop bitter note here and there but is largely spicy yeastiness and modest hop and estery flavor. Still, pretty tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Orange copper, clear. Strong belgian-style yeast, hoppy on nose. Greens, citrus, pale malts. Feels like a hoppy belgian strong. Body is softish, good bitterness. The yeasty esters, residue, and some foresty green hops. A touch of caramel, some pine. Overall a quite clearly belgian- style ipa. Hops and all, but the yeast esters and malts dominate just as much.
