Muggus69 (2831) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2018
De Molen - 21 Grams Cryo Hop IIPA 9% 330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. Bottled 19-09-17 Peach coloured body with uniform hazy, holds a good solid inch of white foam. Despite 3 months under its belt (and a half a world of travel), PLENTY of big hops here; overly ripe peach & apricot & nectarine, grass & cut herbs, glace orange possibly cherry too (?), good bready toasty malts in there too. Plenty of body to it - doesn't feel quite 9% but substantial, sort of slick, chewy, hangs around with much indication of booze. Tones down just a touch of the palate - doesn't have the hop bite a good IIPA should have rather a lingering building sort of ripe pale fruit, citrus & herb note with a sweet bread crust malt character. Bitterness misses the mark. One i'd love to tackle young - but still sort of lacks the big bitterness a classic IIPA should; balance is always gonna be toward the sweeter side.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2018 W aromacie cytrusy, mandarynki, brzoskwinie, lekko tropikalne, lekkie nuty chmielowe. W smaku półwytrawne, lekka słodyczka w tle. Na finiszu krótka, niezalegająca goryczka, pomarańcze, grejpfrut, trochę słodycz miodowa wychodzi. Wysycenie średnie, alkohol dobrze ukryty, treściwe, całkiem pijalne.

4.1
Kita (2331) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 15, 2018
Bottle, 0.33l. Aroma of pine, passion fruit, resin, yeast, peach, mango and cereals. Pours hazy pale amber color with large soapy off-white head, good lacing and sparkling appearance. Taste starts rich fruity with solid swet malty backbone, following is grassy, herbal and mild medicinal as well, mouthfeel is warm, while finish is heavy bitter. Full body, oily texture and lively carbonation in palate. Hoppy brew, but it doesn’t make you cry...

Alengrin (6017) - BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2018
DIPA by De Molen, bottle at Arendsnest in Amsterdam. Thickly moussy, snow white, lacing head, hazy orange blonde robe with khaki tinge. Aroma of tangerine, blood orange, ripe mango, green melon, Sultana raisins, mandarin juice, honey, jasmin blossom, pine resin, marijuana. Sweet, fruity onset, bright mandarin, melon and papaja impressions, soft carbo - a bit too soft actually, needlessly making the body thinner than it should be for a 9% ABV beer; oily and bit vinous feeling. Rounded white bready and sweetish caramelly malt base, long aromatically hoppy finish, very lively and colourful in the citrus department with piney accents to it; gin-like alcohol warms the throat afterwards, while the citrusy hop bitterness lingers. Mouthwatering aroma, but just a bit lacking in body for such a big beer and in that sense more DIPA than IIPA (but then, who cares if this distinction isn't even made on this site).

Bottle at home, from De Bierkonig, 26th December 17. Pours a hazy dark orange beer with a frothy head. Aroma is pineapple, tropical fruit, resinous pine. Taste is fabulous, pineapple, bitter citrus tropical marmalade, yeast, very De Molen, resinous pine. Fantastic DIPA.
