Countbeer (6599) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle: flying_pig (1665) - SCOTLAND - OCT 29, 2013
Hazy orange pour. Medium sized, airy and quickly diminishing, ashy creamy vanilla off white head on top of murky orange colored beer.
Aroma of fresh peach, some hop, hop flowers, hop fruit sweetness and malts.
Flavours of hops, peach, caramalts, light chalky, good growing bitterness, floral and some yeast.
Aftertaste is good bitter, pretty strong bitter, a nice amount of peach and a firm floral tone.
Low to no carbo, very soft mouthfeel, good medium to lightly fuller body and a thick creamy light oily texture.
Very nice beer, just a bit more carbo would do the trick.
Half-Pint on tap at Inn Deep, Glasgow, Scotland (£3): DutchDrebus (6244) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2013
Citrus with some pine and lighter grapefruit with some American style hops. The smell is very refreshing and fruity with a tropical aroma to it that is quite pleasing.
An opaque, caramel amber colour with a thin, white lacing for a head that stays very consistent throughout.
Tropical fruits and citrus with some pine tasting hops & a very bitter taste that is complimented by some caramel.
Smooth tasting & quite juicy as I mentioned, there is a fruity feel to the beer and it has a medium body with about the same carbonation levels.
An enjoyable American IPA with a fairly refreshing taste and a nice helping of malts and caramel to counter the intense, hop-filled flavours that hit you initially.
UPDATED: APR 24, 2013 Rerate! Way better then the first time. Still a bit muddy in the appearance, but with a nice off-white head. Bitter, fresh, hoppy, easy to drink, thirstquencher, lovely. madmitch76 (25809) - , Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2013

Clear amber beer, tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth and a little dry. Smooth creamy malt base with a little of that rye spice. Hops are fresh orange and pine with a touch of dry grass. Finishes smooth with a mellow bitter linger. Very good now - I bet this was superb when really fresh.
Bottled. Hazy amber color, short frothy off-white head. Aroma of grainy rye, hops give grapefruit, peach and pine, some biscuity malt. Nice malty taste, obvious graininess of the rye, citrussy bitterness. I like those Rye IPAs we see a lot in Holland nowadays. Matches nicely with hops.
erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2013
Very misty brown kaki body with frothy beige head. Moderate aroma, less than expected, with bready, oatmeal malts, sour hint and dry grass. More like rye bread than I remember the others in this series. Bit light at first, but very well drinkable, also because the carbonation is low. Not quite the best hop for the aroma, with such a solid malt base, but the taste is very nice. And the more (Dutch) rye ipas the better!

Poors hazy dark orange/amber with tiny white head.
Aroma sweet, sugar, flowers, pine.
Taste strong bitter, little sweet.
Mouth-feel thin, dry.
Bottle shared from Deanso. Pours murky orange brown with a tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, pine, resin, fairly woody, like sniffing a sweet forest. Flavour is moderate sweet and over moderate bitter, the bitterness lingering in the finish. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Really nice.
