33cl bottle pours with a clear deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a modest bright white head of foam. The aroma offers up floral hops, citrus hard candy and a bit of a peach like note.
The taste begins with a nice degree of bitter grapefruit hops and tangerine. It slowly picks up a slender sweet maltiness and a faint berry hard candy like note that is sometimes there and sometimes not. Into the finish the bitter citrus hops fade some as it gets a little herbal, floral and grassy with an increased sense of hop flavor. Pretty nice IPA.

Bottle. Great. Orange color, medium lasting head. Nose is slight caramel, definitely hops - pine, citrus. Taste is light/medium sweet, heavy bitter, long duration on the finish. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation. Really like this one! skortila (5875) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2015
On tap @ Maximus. The aroma has lychee, grapefruit, some grass, little biscuit malts. Bit hazy, golden-copper coloured beer with a medium, white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter and has tropical fruits, biscuit malts, hint of caramel. Almost clean and quite dry in the finish. Good. Martinus (4601) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2015

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2016 My first beer from this new Utrecht brewery, an American-style India pale ale. Egg-white, moussy, stable head of medium thickness, supported by strong sparkling; colour a warm pinkish orange, slightly hazy, reminding me of a sunrise in September... Lovely aroma of citrussy hops and tons of fruit, forwarding impressions of fresh orange and mandarin, pink grapefruit, honey, banana, caramel candy, sweet white grapes, fresh mango, strawberries, vanilla extract, apple cake, fruit yoghurt, burnt wood, roasted peanuts, pine needles, toasted bread... Vividly fruity onset, mango, persimmon and dried apricot, sharp and minerally carbonation, hop bitterness setting in almost immediately (i.e. sooner than expected), only to increase towards the finish, over a backbone of nutty, subtly toasted and lightly bready malts, smooth and light on the tongue but not lacking in body; some spicy yeastiness accentuates the long, bone dry, peppery and floral, tonic water- and grapefruit-like hop bitterness which will stick with you for a long time. Both florally aromatic hops and the deep, leafy background bittering hops are there and in perfect balance. Totally quenching and elegant. But then, I’m a sucker for IPAs...

33cl bottle. Clear golden pour with minimal white head, average lacing. Aroma is fresh spruce, resin and bread. Taste is heavily bitter, fresh with full body. Aftertaste is quite short, but nicely balanced to the bitter, hoppy finish. Really nice and well-made beer. ZodiacM (1190) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2015
Flesje gekocht @Appie Heijn. Geurig hoppig bier met de nadruk op tropisch fruit, daardoor iets zoeter. Qua smaak ook, een mooie balans tussen zoet en bitter en het bloemige van de hop. Lekkere IPA uit Utrecht! rouhlas (3616) - GREECE - OCT 7, 2015
330ml bottle. Light hazy orange color with almost white head. Malty and hoppy aroma, caramel, pine, citrusy fruity, grapefruit. Sweet and biter taste like aroma with orange being the dominant flavor. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Hopverdju (1270) - BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2016
Blond bier met witte schuimkraag. Geur: frisse groene hop. Smaak: bitter en strak. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: bitterig. Je krijgt wat je verwacht, een goede dosis hop en bitterheid. SuennerKoelsch (13) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2016
Kaum Geruch. Dann aber doch sehr gut. Geschmacklich mit malziger Karamellnote. ................TS, JP & JD
