bottled Aug 23rd 2013, hence a bit old
Light amber color, bright and clean, with generous frothy head. The aroma is hoppy, continental, a bit grassy and nutty, also lightly funky. The mouthfeel is dry but not weak; there was probably some extra refermentation in the bottle; malt flavor, some caramel, and a strong wood bitterness, a bit tannic; the hops seem old.

Deep blond color. The aroma is a bit stale, also hoppy and fruity, maybe they didn’t pour yet today. The flavor is very spicy, with light residual sugars, strong bitterness, late hop resins and some citrusy/orange bitterness.

Spicy zingy aroma. Orange, small head. Slightly soapy hop taste, but a nice bitter bite. Peachy body. Good balance between sweet malts, aromatic, and bitter hops. More a hoppy (dutch) bock than an IPA?
