Bottle. Cloudy amber body, frothy off-white head. Aroma of moderately-intense citrus, hay, some pine needles. Semi-dry taste with moderate amount of bitterness; flavors of citrus, herbal hops, biscuits, slight caramel, and some yeasty notes here and there. Medium to full body, slick texture, average carbonation. MikeBeermaster (828) - that shaggy maggot, POLAND - JUN 23, 2017
Candy, sugary notes with hints of citrusy touch. Cloudy amber in the glass with frothy head. Taste is dry with notes of herbal hoppiness, slight citrus and some biscuits, maybe little bit of caramel. Unfortunately, over-hopped. Inbreak (5806) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2017

Fles, opvallend lekkere smaak. Licht bitter, niet overheersend. Ziet er ook appetijtelijk uit.

Bottle from Pivoteka. Slightly hazy orange-golden body, with a beige, thick, lasting head. Remarkably complex, layered aroma for an APA, surprised me. Started with sweet dough, caramel and tangerine, evolved over time into tropical fruit, along with herbal touches, light yeastiness moves it away from perfection. The malts and the hops are always dueling, with one side beating the other depending on the sip. The taste is then surprisingly light and lean, distinctly citric, backed with lean sweet dough, ending in a peppery, piercing (though not in a bad way) bitterness. The yeasty notes (kinda nutty though, but definitely not from the malts) show up here and there again, this is probably great fresh. Too much residual yeast here. Not sure if this is intentional or not, but it probably ate away further, making the already lean beer even leaner, while adding notes that detract, making it seem homebrewish in the end. Like very good homebrew, but still homebrew. Would like to try this on tap though, the recipe is very good, that much is obvious. orbit (59) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2017
Very nice drinker from these guys from Rotterdam, subtle light pale with a nice hoppiness, but not too much. This is an ultimate spring/summer beer you can drink a lot of. bonkiedeaap (750) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2017
Bottle from a supermarket in Hardinxveld, The Netherlands.
The beer is hazy orange colored and has a large and stable broken white foam, with nice carbonation.
The aroma is malty, with notes of caramel and very fruity, with tones of grass, citrus, flowers and tropical fruits with indeed passion fruits.
The taste is light to medium bodied with notes of caramel and fruits like the aroma and changes into a bitterness with hay, grass and spices.
The finish is refreshingly dry and bitter. g_georgiou (565) - CYPRUS - APR 10, 2017
Hazy amber body with a large beige head. Aroma is hoppy, malt, caramel, pine. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body, soft carbonation, dry finish. DinBoek (2) - ’s-Gravenzande, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2017 does not count
Lekkere goed drinkbare frisse ipa met voor mij een goede balans tussen fruitig en bitter met goede schuimkraag kortom lekker. Nu is de vraag welke ipa vind ik het lekkerste Karel of Mooie Nel ? Ik denk dat ik nog veel moet vergelijken om tot een conclusie te komen.
