Gangstergafje (1232) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2017
The looks of the beer isn’t bad. The beer has quite a dark orange color, with a nice medium cloudiness. It’s still possible to look trough it a bit, but it is far from clear. On top of the beer there is a nice layer of soft slightly off white foam. The foam retention isn’t bad. After a while a nice soft drape of foam still is left. Not bad.
The smell of the beer is nice. I smell some clear malts forming a nice base. There is also a nice spicy touch, reminding me a bit of pumpkin ale. Not strong, but a very gentle touch. The hops are nice. They are quite complex. They start off with a more floral aroma, but after a while some nice aromas of both citrus and some spices appear. This pairs very well with the sweet and slightly spicy malt aroma’s. Pretty well balanced smell to.
The taste is also very nice. Sweet base of malts, with again that spicy touch and also a sweet honey flavour. Besides are the strong floral hops, with some touches of citrus. Both sweets and bitters are well balanced, with a nice tiny refreshing acidity. Good one.
The palate is also nice. Medium body, quite smooth and a touch of creaminess maybe, and a nice medium high carbonation. The finish is nice and contains some nice alcohol and some nice bitter hops. All in all, a nice full IPA, filled with hops but also with an eye for tasty malts. I like it a lot. michael_bb (138) - Barcelona, SPAIN - APR 23, 2017
The aroma, while good, falls a bit short for an IPA. However it’s so tasty and feels perfect in texture, one can almost overlook that. alvaro78 (611) - Sevilla, SPAIN - APR 21, 2017

Floral hops, weak pine, mostly caramel malts. Bitterness in the form of pine and tries to come through the sweetness. Medium body with standard carbonation. Ok
Poured from can hazy copper orange with a nice white head. Aromas of honey caramel malt floral hops and some pine. Taste is malt and more malt with nice grapefruit pith and a lingering piney hop bitterness.
