Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy golden to light orange with a small to medium white head and an aroma of tropical fruits (mango, pineapple, apricot, limes), pine, toffee and sweet malts. The taste is medium sweet with a soft carbonationmedium to full body and a log lasting bitter finish. I am not really into IPA, but do like this one.

At a tasting, many thanks, smallish creamy head, cloudy apricot orange color, aroma of soap and herbs, some flowers in the back and maybe onion, fruity peach and herbal flavor, some onion behind, mellow sweetness, medium herbal bitterness. Very nice and highly enjoyable. kraddel (8575) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2017

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2017 Bue à la pression. Couleur ambrée voilée, mousse crémeuse mais pas très tenace. Nez qui fait d'abord penser à du fromage, puis sur le raisin sec avec un peu de temps. Grosse rondeur également en bouche avec des notes de caramel, de pêche jaune et de raisin sec. Amertume faible. carbo comme il faut, bonne buvabilité, bonne Double IPA The_Osprey (8442) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2017
July 2017 - Bottle share at Mr Tipple 5K, Canary Wharf. As 'De Molen / Magic Rock Magic & Tricks', 8%. Hazy opaque orange, foamy off-white head leaves light lacing. Aroma is resinous, apricot, peachy. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is banana foam sweets, spicy, marzipan fruits, resinous and spicy, more sweet plasticky fruits. Quite sugary sweet. Full flavoured but wore on me a little. Just a touch too sweet for my taste, which NEIPAs are always in danger of being. (7-4-7-4-15=3.7)

Keg at Spout Cafe, Leek. A hazy pale amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of orange, grapefruit, some red grape, apricot, slight red fruits, a hint of resin, a little caramel and subtle herbal hops. Taste of orange, grapefruit, some apricot, slight red grape, red fruit and subtle herbal hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A dryish but chewy caramel, fruity and herbal hop bitterness in the finish. A hoppy and chewy IPA, strong finish but it's so drinkable. Sweet for a Vermont IPA but it's flavourful.
