3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2012 Tap. Pours hazy orange with white head that sticks to the glad. Lots of hops and citrus. Taste is really bitter typical ipa hops. Lots of dryness and almost no malt. Long dry finish, could maybe use some sweetness to become more balanced.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours orange with a small off-white head, some retention/lace. Aroma of cheesy hops, tea, pine, caramel malt. Taste is cheesy/pine hops, toffee, earth, bread. Palate is dry, oily, somewhat flat, bitter finish. I really need to stop trying these three month old Euro IPAs.

Bottled 0.33L. Slightly sour hoppy and flowery nose. Large head. Slightly hazy golden colour. Hoppy and fruity taste. Also some grapefruit in the taste. Slightly sweet. At the end hoppy bitterness. Too hoppy for my taste.

28/II/2012 33cl botle from Geers (Oostakker) @ Klaas’ place - BB: 20/XII/13 (2012-168) Thanks to Klaas for sharing the bottle!
Little cloudy orange beer, big creamy yellowish head, very stable, leaving a very nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: pretty piny, exotic fruits, smelly feet, bit cheesy. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body, creamy texture. Taste: citrus fruits, grapefruit, bit pinky, cheesy touch, then lots of bitterness. Aftertaste: lots of dry, piny bitterness, lasts very long.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big white, frothy, head above a hazy orange-straw liquid. The head sticks around for a long time, leaving plenty of lacing as it slowly dies down. Huge aroma of hop oil, grapefruit, malt, pine. Man this is one awesome smelling beer. And it looks awesome as bubbles continue to rise, keeping the head afloat even longer than it should. A nice bitterness up front, a little thin in the body. Mostly just a hoppy flavor with some bready notes. Not as tasty as the smell would lead one to believe. Still good, though. A little more malt character to balance out the hops, and this would be a world class IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a golden bronze. Slight haziness. Decent creamy white head. Aroma of grapefuit and a little sweet biscuity malt. Touch of grassiness and DMS hiding in the back. Flavours show a little sweetness initially before an assertive hop finish. Medium mouthfeel. OK.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy amber body, creamy head. Citric hoppy aroma. Taste is hop bitter - mostly grapefruit and orange peel. Too much dry bitterness and therefore feels a bit out of balance for my tastes. Perhaps nice to pair with some foods but too grapefruity by itself.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of Jesse. Thanks. Cloudy dark golden with a fizzy white head. Musty, earthy grapefruit aroma and taste with bready notes through out and a brassy finish. Not bad.
