Ipa fantastica! Aroma ottimo di frutta tropicale, il migliore che abbia mai sentito, sapore idem e sempre il migliore, retrogusto che rimane e non ti lascia pi. Birra non sicuramente facile ma che se ne potrebbe bere a litri! La migliore!!!

Voici donc la version originale de la bire qui a inspir les Struise Brouwers pour leur Ignis et Flamma En fait le brasseur de chez Molen leur avait demand leur version pour un festival. Ipa donc, de 6,2 % abv avec une densit plato de 14,9, et un niveau ebu de 63. (Erreur sur le site ). Malt pale et cara. Houblon Premiant pour le ct bitter, ensuite du Galena, Cascade, Chinook, Simcoe, Amarillo. Excusez du peu ... Couleur ambre dor moyen, superbe (ebc mentionn de 10, mais ceci me parat peu par rapport la ralit). Lger voile de levure. Bulles fines et vives partout. Mousse blanche trs paisse, avec une texture de blanc duf battu en haut. Armes de malt trs fin, agrumes, pamplemousse, fleurs grimpantes blanches. Nez splendide. 1re bouche souple, lattaque sur des houblons, des pices, tabac blond, pointe de poivre blanc. Arrire-bouche dune complexit damertume incroyable.. (6 houblons ). 2me la finesse des impressions, et une norme varit de la palette. Arrire-bouche frache, fine, complexe, longue... parfaite. 3me avec du malt finement grill, houblon, levure, pice, bois blanc. Arrire-bouche avec une densit remarquable pour une ipa, bien malte. Longueur qui est une beaut pure qui se sirote tranquille. Le nez reste superbe. Jambes groupes, trs marques. Levure douce, fine, avec de trs beaux traits. Superbe veine. Alcool parfait pour rvler tout le potentiel, avec le niveau exact dune Orval (en clin dil...). Finale qui a encore dautres choses nous dire (dans le creux de loreille ). CONCLUSION: quel talent, quelle finesse, quel ensemble prodigieux. Pas tonnant que les Struise se soient dmens pour donner de cet ipa extraordinaire leur interprtation tout aussi grandiose. Splendide travail pour lune et lautre bire, de la part de vrais brasseurs .

Hazy bronze colour with a nice white head. Wonderfully hop packed aroma that led to a tropical fruit laced flavour, that oozed resinous hop. Perfect bitterness 42.6 IBU. One of my favourite beer!

Wowzer! What a great beer this was. Drank at Birmingham Post Office vaults last weekend, and I highly recommend you go out and try this one. I got a strong passion fruit/exotic fruit aroma, with a delicate malty background. This ones all about the american hops and the explosive exotic fruits and citrus fruit taste was amazing. No big harsh hop bitterness either, which I find can often detract from the overall taste.

Great beer and for the style and how hoppy it tastes, it really is on the low end of IBUs for the style. Pours a nice golden color with a good head. Really comes forth with the hops but has a nice malty backbone. This beer is a definite go to beer!

"Bottel" 488 (brewed 11. March, bottled 12. April). Wow! This pours an unclear brownish colour, with a massive, staying head. The aroma is amazing, with a very pleasant fruitiness and sweet hints of strawberry and honey. A full body hits you with a good, caramelly malt, with a slight hint of toffee, and finishes of in a dry, bitter finish of citrus. The carbonation is not really that aggressive, but due to the marked yeast residue it goes on and on, adding to both the palate and the everlasting head. What starts of as a fabulous IPA, ends up as an extraordinary ESB hybrid, with a long, bitter aftertaste.

Grzesiek79 (4163) - Radom, POLAND - APR 5, 2013
Znakomite IPA z Holandii, z młynskiego mikro browaru. Myglad i zapach to najwieksze plusy. kolor mocno metny, osadu az tyle co w belgiskich triplach. Jak na IPA to zadkosc. Zapach chmielowy, a jakby mialo byc inaczej, gozko i wytrawnie aromatycznie i zywicznie. Kolor smietany zabarwionej jajim zoltkiem, a piana jak snieg na mont everest. smak jak dobre klasyczne IPA

Orange pour with pinkish hazy hues. Aroma is very floral and extremely citrus hoppy, Amazing taste as well with juicy grapefruit, pineapple, and resinous hops. Finishes leaving the tongue salivating. Good lacing. Excellent ipa from De Molen.
