JStax (3421) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2012
Poured on draft into a tulip glass. Appearance is a hazy gold with a white head of foam that leaves quickly. Aroma is almost nonexistent. I get some lemon zest, but that’s about the end of it. This beer left me wondering if I just completely missed it.

ordybill (462) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2015
Poured from a 330 ML bottle into a tulip glass Aroma- Has a big yeast smell, not that appealing. Appearance- A clear amber color with a small white head. Taste- Has a strong lemon flavor that is fairly sour. the next flavor is the hops and malt. Pretty unique and uncommon Palate- A medium bodied beer with heavy carbonation. Overall- A better than average beer but not for everyone.

budedou (500) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - APR 15, 2015
Blond, golden, white head. Nose: grainy but the nose is mainly dominated by malts, Taste: malts too, citrus, typical Belgian yeast in the back. very nice enjoyable bitterness finish. This all taste very well balanced. Has something sweet, but bitter dry ending. Refreshing for sure

thirstyrabbit (1309) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle. Pale golden body, medium head. Aroma has yeast and herbal/soapy hops. Somebody said "rubber glove" and I would have to agree. Sweet herbal-hoppy taste with unfolding alcohol bitterness. Finish has sweet yeast, thin sweet malts and alcohol bitterness. Messy like the two other beers I’ve had from this brewery. Hop it? I’ll say fuck it pass it.

Daanminator (214) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2015
Mooie gouden kleur in het glas met een flinke schuimkop erop. Het bier is behoorlijk hoppig kwa smaak maar het wordt nooit vervelend. Gedronken van de tap.

21.11.2014. Golden colour, quite big foam. Aroma of white pepper, lemon, grassy bitterness. Crisp carbonation. Spicy, citrus, honey, grass, hoppy bitter dryish finish. Nice, balanced. Alcohol is not completely hidden. Hoppier tripel.

Batavi (79) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2015 Uitgeschonken in origineel Urthel bierglas, iets mistige mooie goudgele kleur, met hoge en stabiele witte schuimkraag. Die na enige tijd wegzakt, maar wel aan het glas blijft kleven. De geur is hop en vol specerijen. De smaak is zacht, zoet, complex en bitter. Tonen van gedroogde abrikozen, vers brood, koriander, bloesem, dennenhout en pittige, kruidige hopsoorten. De Urthel Hopp-It is een aangenaam en uitstekend gebalanceerd bier, de alcohol van 9,5% is heel zeer goed verborgen! De afdronk is vol en bitter met veel en aangename hoptonen. Net als de Urthel Samaranth een fraai artisanaal gebrouwen bier die ik zeker vaker ga proeven. Bij sommige IPA bieren is de hop te overheersend en te bitter, maar deze Hop-It heeft een smaakpallet en balans die vele IPA's achter zich laat, dankzij het typisch fijne Belgische aroma en smaakpallet van dit bier.

O que dizer de uma cerveja IPA na escola aromática Belga? Fantástica essa Holandesa. Equilibrada, frutada, lupulada, animal!!!!
