A nice balanced BSA, but I found it a bit thin, especially for 9.5%. Would’ve welcomed a tad more carbonation. Not bad.

thirstyrabbit (1285) - 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.

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 (63) - 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!!!!

Very strong hoppy blonde from the Netherlands. Pretty good but probably wouldn't be something I could drink all the time.

Tap at Bulldog NE. Bartender tried to talk me out of it which I think speaks volumes about his beer knowledge. A golden color with a half finger of steady head. Aroma pushes toward floral with a hoppy resin influence. Taste has an initial sweetness that gives way to a hop centric bitterness. Alcohol presence definitely noticeable. Spice makes its feelings known as the sip progresses. Aftertaste leans on the resiny, pine characteristics but it definitely works. Bartender could not have been more wrong. Solid beer. I’d Hop It again.

Silty, creamy and some herbs and yeast. Lots of koriander and some bitter hops. Sweet and yeasty. Lots of flavours.
