UPDATED: NOV 11, 2012 Beautiful hazy dark amber with off white, leaving the perfect lace. Fruity flowery hop aroma and taste with mango and pineapple. Nice bitterness. Medium body, fine carbo. Benzai (15587) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle shared with dEnk at his place. Opaque hazy orange color with a full sized long lasting white head. Smell malts and lots of hops and fruityness. Taste malts, hops, fruityness, medium but suitable bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. DutchDrebus (5982) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2013
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. Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle: Thanks Maarten:
Medium to bigger sized, vast and slow disappearing, white creamy/creamy white head on top of a hazy orange to amber colored beer.
Smell typical hop tones and it’s traces like floral, resin, some fruits like exotic fruits, grapefruit, some citrus and some apricot, there is that hint of gass (carbo) again.
Taste is less sour than the other version but has a light sour touch to it too. There is lots of hops and floral tones, some bitters, apricot, yeast, some (sour) peach, berries, fruity yeast, light hint of malts, some floral herbs and a slight hint of carbo gass.
Aftertaste is bitter with some apricot, some yeast, floral tones and some light fruity/bitter herbs.
Low carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture.
I think I like this one just a bit better, for an IPA it is. Just a bit more IPA and less sour. BobEvers (370) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2013
kleur: oranje, goud, helder met een enorme schuimkraag, erg veel koolzuur
geur: een flinke dosis aroma’s. Vooral fruit (sinaasappel, citrus), en hop. Een frisse geur.
smaak: Zoet, fruit, licht zuur, en een lekkere bitter. Het blijft varieren in smaak. Erg lekker!

Bottle @ home, shared with René. Aroma is fruity spicy hops, some bready malt. Flavour is messy hop goodness with some yeast and a touch of metal. Okay. Martinus (4601) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 5, 2013
