Bottle at home 2nd September 2012. Very fizzy, huge head, like the last De Molen , disappears good lacing though. Flavour is good, refreshing yeasty and hoppy, rich palate. Not bad

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2012 A lot of foam like all De Molen beers.
What a pity that nose gets this awful burnt rubber aroma ... it would have been great.
Taste is well balanced.
I would have to re-taste it later.
Some months later, same comments: I poured a nice white massive huge foam with a medium gold/amber beer bottom ...
Burnt rubber ... too bad.
I am almost sure that the original recipe and potential of this beer are nice. sonnycheeba (5962) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy copper with thick, frothy off-white head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is citrus and grassy hops, apples, bread and biscuit malts, herbs, and light pine. Flavor is mostly hops (light bitterness), grapefruit, sweet malts, and herbs; dry finish with faint hops. Medium body and carbonation. DutchDrebus (5952) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle at home. Slightly hazy yellow to golden colour with a dense white head. Smells hoppy, fruity, fresh.. Quite nice. Tastes fruity, bitter, hoppy, grapefruit. Steady beer by the Molen. Had this one before but didn’t rate it i guess. Slightly fizzy carbo, medium body and slightly warming. Theydon_Bois (19193) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2012
Tap at the Euston Tap - 10/04/12.
Slightly hazy (chill?) copper/orange with a mid sized white head.
Nose is full of hops, tropical fruits and grass.
Juicy resinous hops in the taste, tangerine, grapefruit, mango.
Medium bodied and carbonation with a bitter finish - I liked!

Re-rated this one after a visit to De Molen brewery and got this one from a barrel:
Hazy yellow/amber beer with a big offwhite head. Hoppy and fruity aroma. Fruity and hoppy lovely flavour. A lovely beer to enjoy at any occasion! :-) DuffMan (10270) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle, shared with my wife but barely, as I pretty much hogged the entire bottle. Hazy orange-tinted gold with an enormous lively white head that bubbles and laces and is just awesome. Aroma is so full-on tropical fruit, particularly passionfruit. Some caramel, some soft yeast too. Flavour is again passionfruit, some vegetal conifer notes, some green mango skin, all supported by a light caramel malt base. Almost creamy mouthfeel. This was just so excellent! laiti (8374) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 14, 2012
33 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 27.08.2010bennet65 (88) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 14, 2012
Aroma is fruity with mango and passion. Also hints of caramel. Flavour is hoppy with exotic fruits, some biscuits and caramel. Quite nice ”light IPA.”
Nice IPA here. more accents on the toffee and caramel than the hops on the nose. Quite rich with a nice bitterness. thepegjett (1260) - Cambridge (via Winnipeg), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2012
Caramel, citrus and toffee. Mid brownish-orange with thin to mid head. Mid sweet and light controlled bitter. Understated and nice.
