3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tangerine, pineapple, banana, even some mango, amazing aroma. Hugh white foamy head with some soap like bubbles. Mild at first with a little kick at the end. Not the best IPA ever but this one’s nice. Great label too. Bought at the De Molen Bottleshop in Bodegraven.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cloudy bronze beer with a strong head. The aroma is deeply hopped, and the flavour is well hopped with a very, very long dry finish. Overall a very nice strongly hopped pale ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Large, rocky white head with good retention and a heavy lacing. Lightly hazy, dark gold copper hued ale. Juicey nose of grapefruit, and some piney resiny notes. Body is almost full, oily, juicey and resiny. Lots O hop goodness, pine, resincitrus large, fat and munchy. Dry finish with a rather large bitterness, which is ggod, duh. Big IPA, well done. Bottle procured @statelineliquors. Nice!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sehr fruchtiger (Grapefruit, Maracuja) Geruch. Antrunk zunächst erfrischend zitrusartig. Mittig kräftig bittereinsetzend, würziger. Abgangs noch bitterer und trocken; nur noch leicht zitrusartig. Bier mit Charakter - ein gutes IPA.

12 ounce thanks to Jarrett. Nice orange body with good carbonation. Basically, grapefruit meets pine. Grassy bitter aroma. Some caramel. Very different.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Gusher. When the action ceases, I see a hazy light orange body with a medium white head. Nose is grapefruit, citrus, skunky grass/weed notes and hints of kiwi in the back. Very original and very, very nice. Taste goes on in the same direction: grassy skunky bitter hop tones with sharp citrusy orange marmalade notes. Mellow and forthright at the same time, and obviously a sterling crafted brew. With an original overall profile to boot - and the extremely fresh taste - this really is a "hidden gem", and clearly one of the best IPAs I’ve had in a long time.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orangish gold with a white head that dissipates slightly but remains throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of citrus with a bit of resin and a light grain backing. Flavor begins with grapefruit that is joined by pine and a bit of resin in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cat urine smell. Clear amber, medium head. Flavor is like the aroma, but with a floral element, rosehips. Leafy lemongrass finish. My friends didn’t like it, but I didn’t find it all that objectionable. Ok.

Orange body, big white head. Orange and grapefruit, along with caramel, in the hoppy aroma. Easy drinking, medium body. Sweet and hoppy, with a bitter finish. A very nice IPA.
