Borefts 2013 - Aroma is a bit herbal. It’s very malty and sweet with quite a ’green’ hop taste.

Draft @ ML Fontainas. Couleur acajou-ambrée, col blanc cassé, doré au verre. Arôme offre ce bouquet agréable de houblons, impression de renfermé, agrumes et note de pin voire sève très agréable. Le tout se partage bien les caractéristiques du malt. Palais est malté moyen avec un niveau alcoolisé qui se fait présent sans être trop. Note houblonnée de pin, sève, léger picotement sur la langue avec un côté mandarine et purée d’abricot. Offre également un côté feuilles vertes et autres agrumes. Malt caramel modéré, le tout collant légèrement les lèvres avec un résiduel houblonné - vert fort sympathique.

Douberd (3013) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2013
On tapa t Borefts ’13. Deep orange, almost red in colour, with a thick, light beige head. Very good retention, light lacing. Aroma is very hoppy, caramel, tropical fruits, mango. TAste is mildly bitter, caramel, tropical fruits, basically follows the aoma. Medium thin body, good carbonation. Overall a great imperial IPA, I didn’t have many at Borefts but this was one of the better ones,

MrHangover (3062) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2013
Tap @ Borefts 2013. Pours a murky, amber beer with a bubbly, off white head on top. Aroma of grapefruits, citrus and pines, with a big grassy hop influence. Flavor is bittersweet with some nice, light citric hop characters in there. Has some caramel sweetness present in the end of the flavor. Slightly alcoholic. Quite a decent brew.

@Borefts. Nice double IPA with fruity hops. Still, I expected a more special taste from these great hops. It felt like it lacked something.
