sebletitje (10293) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2016
Sample @ Stadsbrouwhuis, Leiden.
Orangée, col fin blanc-cassé.
Arôme au bouquet léger houblonné, rétro centré sur une note épicée et de levure. Retrouve un léger fruité rappelant l’abricot fermenté.
Palais est léger au niveau houblon, finement citronné, touche de pamplemousse avec un malt jouant la carte du caractère dominant. Impression de thé vert, abricot et fine amertume en fin de bouche. Ok pour une bière d’intro dans le style IPA. harrisoni (19341) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2016

Post Borefts VII, Day 2 - Leiden walkabout. Tap at the North End English Pub. Hazy amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Thin malts, trace of caramel. Mild piney hops, little citric peel. Light crisp finish. A bit hop light but quite drinkable.
Bottle bought at the Mitra supermarket in Holland.
It pours a lovely orange old gold, with a lightly tanned head which clings nicely to the glass.
Beuatiful smell of sweet malts, citrus hops, notes of orangepeel, funky wet leather hints, caramel, lightly yeasty too.
A lovely dry mouthfeel with roasted malts in the middle, fruity and sweet malt overall, citrus hops bitterness, well balanced between bitter and fruity sweet. A very nice aaipeejee indeed! Alengrin (5722) - BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2015 IPA from Leiden, thanks to Craftmember for sharing. Thick and creamy, thickly lacing, egg-white head and warm, deep orange blonde colour, pretty clear at first but misty with deposit. Aroma of orange peel, tangerine, light pine, biscuit, caramel, damp cloth, peach, roasted pine nuts, strawberry. Taste fruity, subduedly sweet, peach, starfruit, apple peel, citrus peel fraîcheur, soft carbo, lean and supple mouthfeel with a caramelly, lightly toasted maltiness, ending in an aromatic, leafy bitterness, citrusy, spicy hoppiness, long and drying, with fruity yeastiness piercing through. Nice and balanced, quenching; seen its yeastiness, I’d rather consider this a hybrid between American style IPA and Belgian IPA.
