Draught @ Van Moll Brewpub. Intended as a Belgian IPA according to brewer Erwin van Moll, but to his own opinion not "Belgian" enough. I think he’s right, but I can’t say I’m bothered since I prefere a clean, crisp IPA over a more yeasty Belgian IPA. Anyway, the beer:
hazy a bit rusty color, medium to full sized off-white head that diminishes fairly quick but leaves good lacing. Aroma is lightly malts, lovely hoppy and fruity. Taste lightly malts, hops, fruit hops, fruity, moderately bitter. Smooth body, suitable carbonation. Easy drinkable, lovely session IPA. I could drink this all night. Very nice, again a superb beer by Van Moll.
