My Bottle was 20mts old and the hops had clearly faded. Fresh its probably great, but as it is its merely decent

Bawelt (718) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUL 21, 2015
Lgre, agrable. Le houblon amarillo est dcidemment un bon parti pour le houblonnage sec. Manque ventuellement dun peu de corps et de richesse aromatique pour tre vraiment remarquable. Elle reste quilibre et matrise.

Gangstergafje (864) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 The beer has a beautiful orange color with a soft white foam head. The beer is very cloudy. The color is like an IPA or Pale Ale. The smell is really sweet and full of citrusy hop flavors of the Amarillo. The smell is really refreshing. Unfortunately the taste is less great. The citrusy sweetness of the Amarillo, which is clearly present in the smell, is almost not present in the taste. There is a lot of bitternes, almost to much. In the finish however there is a little of the citrusy sweetness of the Amarillo hops.

Hazy golden, lasting white head. Nose is peach, pine and tangerines. Body is light, carbon light, texture thin. Taste is bitter. Palate is fruity and hoppy. Fresh. Bitter aftertaste. B@Leerdam

Une bitter amricaine de 9 plato pour 4,5 % abv, et niveau ebu de 42. Elabore avec du malt pils et cara, du houblon Sladek pour lamertume, et de lAmarillo en late hopping. Couleur roux moyen abricot (ebc de 23). Voile de levure assez dense. Bulles fines en colonnes sur les parois, vives. Mousse blanc cass, qui forme un nappage superbe 2 mm. Armes de malt grill, agrumes douces, avec un zeste dorange. Merveilleusement fleuri et quilibr, je reste de longues minutes humer ce parfum subtil. 1re bouche soyeuse sur un malt clair, amertume trs plaisante, fleurs blanches. Arrire-bouche de grande saveur, fleurs de haie. 2me sur le malt grill, bonne tenue du fruit avec un fleuri distingu. Arrire-bouche bien frache, longue, prcise. 3me sur un malt finement grill, bois de chne blanc. Arrire-bouche trs prcise, sans faille. Longueur dun admirable quilibre, douceur, saveur. Jambes un peu marques, et lisses pour une autre part. Levure bien nette, un peu pice, poivre, trs belle veine. Alcool tout fait oprant sur les saveurs, et en prservant lamertume. Finale au nez toujours aussi merveilleux, et avec encore dautres nuances en bouche. Il faut la boire par toutes petites touches pour percevoir toutes ces nuances. CONCLUSION: la bire du retour des beaux jours (28 aujourdhui), avec son cortge dagrumes, son beau houblon, son malt finement grill. Mais le nez dentre, qui se retrouve dailleurs la finale, mrite dj lui seul quasiment un 5, un parfum digne de Dior ...
