worldbeertaste (1806) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 Medium hazy amber with a white, creamy, thick, lacy, lasting head. Smells of nice hops, grass and grapefruit with orange and a bit of floral with malt. Really nice on the nose. Medium thin body with medium carbonation. It feels a bit off like it was left in the sun and chose to discard it. Got another bottle that smelled the same but the taste didn’t improve much. Tastes of bitter hops – grapefruit citrus with caramel malt and light floral hops. Seems like its leaning more towards an ale that went off and less towards an IPA. Sour.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small head. Vague hoppy influences in the aroma. Probably infected bottle. Taste is very infected, sour and tart. Nope, this is infected.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 2/II/13 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: I/2014 (2013-124) Thanks to Martinus for sharing the bottle!

Little cloudy amber beer, big fizzy yellowish head, unstable, falls down pretty fast. Aroma: fruity start, pineapple, bit chemical, nail polish remover. MF: lots of carbon, light to medium body. Taste: lots of citrus, bit grassy, bitter hops, some tobacco, dry. Aftertaste: bitter, some grapefruit, little fruity, bit sweet, passion fruit and pineapple.

Martinus (4692) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 5, 2013
Hazy amber colour, firm off-white head. Aroma of pineapple, lots of pineapple. Hops, light fusel oils, quite fruity, resin. Sweet flavour, light to medium bitter. Quite mild. Lots of CO2. Light body, fruity, light sweet and bitter finish.
(From 33cL bottle, shared @ Tim & Marina’s place, Gent. From trade with MaartenRF10. Thanks!!)

Bottle @ home. Slightly hazy beautyful orange colour with a big white head. Makes me thirsty looking at it. Smells hops, grapefruit, fresh, nice. Tastes very fresh and refreshing, grapefruits, hops.. Amazing IPA taste. The only downside of this beer is the amount of carbo. It’s too much and it takes away the drinkability of this beer. I’m thirsty and I want to pour this stuff down my throat. The carbo doesn’t allow for this without getting teary eyes and huge burps.

via trade met MaartenRF10, nog bedankt !
amber/oranje van kleur, met gigantische schuimkraag.
smaak: deze versie was behoorlijk aan de zurige kant, dat kan wellicht komen door de zure tonen van de grapefruit, verder waren voor mij de geuren van mandarijn, iets van exotisch fruit (ik kan wel gokken maar weet niet precies welke geuren), en ananas te herkennen.
afdronk: droog, bitter, zurg, bitter en fruitig,
voor mij toch een vreemd biertje, ben enkel benieuwd of de hoge zuurgraad standaard bij dit bier is of dat ik een exceptionele variant had . Ik zou hem graag nog eens willen testen.

Great iniative from Epe. Nice beer, lots of grapefruit and mandarin in both aroma and taste. Could have been a tad more bitter for my taste, just a little too sweet. But still a nice beer. Bottle from De Bierkoning.

erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2012
Copper, hazy body with big light tan head. Super fresh hopped, tropical fruits, mandarin, white bread base. Very sweet from the pure hops. Light bodied, low in carbonation, maybe a bit too much. Not as rich in taste as expected. Great aroma, taste is okay. (33cl bottle traded with Maarten, thanks!)

Borresteijn (7412) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2012
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Hazy orange colour, off-white head. Aroma of stone fruits, peach, hops, caramel, musty. Flavour is medium sweet, caramel, light floral, fruits, stone fruits, light earthy fruity bitter hoppy finish. Light-bodied, a little over-carbonated. Nice.

kermis (14493) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle from ABC beers, Den Haag. Pours hazy orange with an off white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, some grass, citrus. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
