Light blonde, with medium head. Aroma more pilsener like, somewhat iron like. Taste slightly bitter, not much aroma hops.

Keukeman (165) - BEST, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2017

Theydon_Bois (20425) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2017
Bottle at home, 20/08/17. Clear rich golden with a well appointed off white head that retains well. Nose carries an Old Skool edge with caramel malts, biscuit, orange peel, grass, light spice. Taste comprises toasted grains, straw, light mineral notes, caramel, biscuit, orange pith, lemon rind. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying close with moderate hop bitterness. Run of the mill Old Skool IPA but sippable I guess.

Bottle split at JF’s, thanks to Tony, 23/08/13. Very lightly hazed golden amber with a good sized light beige head. Nose is caramel malt forward, citrus, hops, grass, bitter hop notes. Taste comprises caramel malts, sugar, light pine, hop notes, bitter orange. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light hop bitterness in the finish. Pleasant enough affair, no hop bomb but drinkable stuff.

Leighton (22019) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2017
Bottle shared in London - thanks to Danny boyo. Pours totally clear yellow-gold with a foamy, pure white head. The aroma holds citrus peel, pale grains, hay. Lig sweet flavour with crackery pale malts, more grains, hay. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with light dryness, more dirty hay, lemon peel. So so overall.

Keg at the Euston Tap. Pours a dark, slightly cloudy gold with a foamy head. Some citrusy hops on the nose, earth, mild bread. Lightly sweet with tangy fruits, bit more bread. Medium bodied with average to lively carbonation. Some warmth on the finish, bit more tangy citrus. OK.

Earlier Rating: 5/6/2011 Total Score: 3.7
Golden orange colour with good white head. Aroma has some off putting hot alcohol but mostly earthy, spicy notes from the hops. This beer is really soft on the palete, with gentle carbonation. Good caramel malty grainy backbone with more of those earthy spicy hops. This beer finishs nice and dry with a lingering bitterness.

Van de tap bij Jan de Wit. Vind ’m niet super. Wel gewoon OK maar zijn zeker betere ipas.

ruigo (3088) - PORTUGAL - JUL 19, 2017
33cl bottle. Clear golden orange with a nice off-white head. Grassy, earthy, citrus and fruity.

guzgorog (916) - FRANCE - JUL 18, 2017
Robe ambrée léger, limpide, fine mousse blanche. Beau profil aromatique sur le pamplemousse, les oranges amères, zests d’oranges, résine, et finale herbacée, la base maltée fait également parler d’elles avec des notes légères de caramel. Carbo moyenne, longueur OK, belle amertume, une IPA bien foutue...
Earlier Rating: 6/1/2016 Total Score: 3.3
Robe blonde dorée, limpide, fine mousse blanche qui ne tient pas. Les zenteurs sont très citronnées, et légèrement maltées. Bouche agréable, également sur le citron, un poil épicée, amertume moyenne, faible pour le style. Longueur moyenne, corps moyen, carbo faible. Une "IPA" plutôt de style anglaise, agréable sans être exceptionnelle.
