4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2015 Pours amber-brown colour with yellow mousse-like firm head. Medium fast rising bubbles. Aroma without presence of alcohol. Malts are also in second plan, namely hops dominate: centennial give aroma of tropical fruits, especially of mango. Hop bitterness is high. Similar is with flavour, but sweetness of malts and hop bitterness is perfect balanced. Taste is firstly sweet, but than you immidiately detect high bitterness of hops, with long lasting finish. Texture is silky and smooth, body is soft, malt sweetness is medium to high, hop bitterness is high. Another perfect brew from Proef.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle served in a Struise glass. Cloudy amber colour with a massive white head. Powerful aroma of abundant resinous hops. Taste is exactly as promised by the aroma - grassy, resinous hops dominate. Little malt presence which is how I like my IIPAs. Quite a severe bitterness which considering I had just finished a Hardcore IPA is a testament to its strength (I would be interested to know the IBU rating of this one).

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to IPA glass
Bread, grapefruit, overripe apple, tropical fruit, and light spruce.
Pours a hazy amber with a 5 cm and growing off white head due to boisterous effervescence. The cashier in the store I bought it from knocked it over, but that was 6 hours ago. Taste is fruity and sweet with a strong bitterness that lasts.
