Borresteijn (7491) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2017
33cl Bottle, thanks Henkie! At its BB date, so not very fresh. Amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, floral hops, light citrus, some tropical fruits. Flavour is light, malty, caramel, floral, light hoppy, light fruity, marmalade. Light bodied. Nice, fitting on an Indian Summer day like this.

A little bit dissapointed in this beer, it is kind of brusk with little subtility or hidden tastes, tastes like a bitter that went kind of off.

Benzai (16690) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2017
Bottle @ home. Hazy orange color, medium sized off-white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is light malts, oranges, orange peel, a bit herbal. Taste is light to moderately malty, grassy lightly, herbal hops, orangepeel, herbal hop bitterness. Average body and carbonation. Meh, don’t know why but it reminds me more of a saison instead of an IPA (or red ale for that matter).

MelvinKalksma (1725) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2017

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, fruit, tea, bread, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque orange/brown beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with tea, bread, hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. A lot of malts and just a bit of dry hopping to complement this, creating a distinct tea flavour together. Not really an IPA and I see no reason to call it that.

thanatosti (1793) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2016
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ W. van Schaik, Vianen. Hazy amber with a white head. Tropical fruits and some pine in the aroma. Medium bitterness. Good solid and tasty IPA, even better than their Highhops.

Bottle shared with Deanso. Hazy orange with an off white head. Aroma of fruity hops, citrus, grassy notes and light malt. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and above moderate bitter. Light medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Koelschtrinker (21492) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 22, 2016
Frischer, deutlich bitterer Hopfenantrunk. Würzig herb, vollmundig getreidig. Leider wird der Hintergrund schnell schwächer, das Bier dadurch eindimensional-immerhin aber hopfig. Bitterer Nachhall. 8/11/9/8//9
