Clear light amber with fluffy head. Herbal, medium malty with roasted touch. Touch of grapefruit and pine. Starts lightly sweet but with a big bitter kick, bitter finish. Nice complex bitterness. Good stuff. MarcoDL (4973) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2013
Decent IPA with the usual fruity notes of hops. Bit grassy as well. Nice, but the Molen has better IPA’s, I don’t understand what extra value this one has for them. JohnRMurdoch (4878) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 22, 2014
330ml bottle from Valhalla’s Goat. Orange amber, big foamy head. Citrus pine hop aroma. Bubblegum mango orange hop flavour. Very sharp with big mango hop aftertaste. A classic IPA. sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2013
Poured medium amber with a frothy, disappearing off white head. Aroma of sweet citrus. Medium body, flavour much as the aroma,a bit bitter, the fruit varies from orange to tropical. Habanero (4682) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2013
Pours hazy amber with a huge, lacing white head. Aroma of citrus, orange peel, berries and notes of caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily text. and average carb. A quite nice IPA.

(from 33cL bottle @ Van Moll)
Bottle from Gurd at Gurd’s bottle tasting evening. Very nice IPA and a tasty palate cleanser during an evening of big Stouts. Good fresh citrus. Good body. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2013
Bottle at home. Hazy orange pour, thick solid white head. Aroma of fruity hops, peach, mango, pineapple and some unfermentable sugars. Flavor is sweet fruity hops, fruity malts, typical De Molen yeast and nice bitter hops in the finish. Nice balance, nice texture, decent carbonation. A welcome good old IPA from the Molen.

330ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. Bottled 21-08-13. 03-04-2014.
In short: a grassy bitter ale.
Pours hazy dark gold-orange with huge frothy white head. Overcarbonated. Long head retention, some lacing. Grassy, caramel, flowers aromas. Medium body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste follows the nose, some sweetflavours but bitter dominated, grassy, caramel, spicy. Dry aftertaste. Enjoyable.
