Gangstergafje (890) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2017
The beer looks like a true IPA. The color is light amber and the beer is quite clear, but a tiny cloudiness can be observed. On top of the beer a very small layer of foam is formed, of which the bulk collapses, leaving almost nothing. The smell of the beer is nice. It is very hoppy. I smell some more resinous hop aromas. It also has some floral hints; it definitely isnt as citrusy as most IPAs are. The hop aroma is bitter and a tiny bit sweet and is in nice balance with some sweeter malt touches. The hops really give the beer a fresh summery, happy touch. The taste is also great. It too is filled with flavorous hops. Flowersm maybe some grass and some herbs. It is again in good balance. Nice and bitter, with a lovely sweet touch. Its lovingly refreshing, There are some twists in the beer the really give the beer a funky twist, probably the juniper and quinine. The beer has a nice kick from the carbonation, tingling the tongue and propelling aromas and flavours. All in all, another lovely beer by Jopen!

DijkBier (305) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2016
This is a very extraordinary beer: with quinine (to match gin&tonic). The bottle pours very hazy light-golden, with a foamy white head, that doesnt really last. The aroma is surprising; wow. Malts, but also gin-tonic indeed, through the quinine, juniper, cucumber; light citrus. Taste is fairly bitter, that lasts in the aftertaste; hops, grapefruit, but also a hint of penicilline. A little weird, but I do like these experiments!

33cl bottle. Apperance: Clear yellow golden,with a medium sized white head. Aroma; Light malts, juniper, cumcumber, herbs, lemon zest, floral tones. Taste: Follows the aroma, Spices with some floral tones and a good lemon zesty bitterness. Medium boy,average carbonation. Nice but not for everyone,because of herbal spicyness and its bitterness.

kaserov (479) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 12, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2016 Color dorado claro, translcido, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor, consistente y espumosa (muy buena retencin). Carbonatacin alta. Restos de enebro flotando. El aroma se les ha quedado demasiado herbceo para mi gusto. Aunque tambin me recuerda al olor de la tnica. Se percibe tambin algo de malta. Interesante pero no me agrada demasiado. El sabor es un bombazo. Sabe a Gin&tonic con un deje amargo. Se nota mucho el enebro y otras especias que crean una combinacin maestra. Amargor y carbonatacin bien medidos. Toda una sorpresa de birra.

Saeglopur (1969) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - AUG 20, 2016
330 ml bottle, bb 21 Dec 2017. Thanks to my EU Secret Summer Santa MonsterMagnet!
Dark golden, hazy body, with a big, fluffy, off-white head.
Aroma of grapefruit, gin, grass, flowers, some pine, passion fruit, biscuit, some candy.
Taste follows this pretty much, with some more herbs.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes medium bitter, a bit dry, herbal, grassy, citric, floral, with gin.

Nice one. A quite straight IPA, but with some gin notes, that are well integrated. Fresh and crisp, but maybe lacking a bit more character, while still really solid.

luttonm (5551) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Bottle in Seattle, picked up in Amsterdam. Creamy white head cloudy light, white gold. Sweet malty ipa aroma, mild hop, plenty of gin botanicals. Juicy, sweet. Malty sweet back, some sharper alcohol, gin and tonic makes plenty of sense. Quite tasty, but unusual. I like it.
