UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 via trade met MaartenRF10, nog bedankt !erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2012
amber/oranje van kleur, met gigantische schuimkraag.
aroma: citrus, grapefruit, fruit, mout, hop, sinaasappel
smaak: deze versie was minder zurig dan de Cascade Dryhopped variant. Verder wat zoet, met name droog, hoppiger.
This Willamette version looks similar, with frothy big light tan head. This is also very fruity in aroma, bit more peach and sticky than the tropical fruits of the Cascade only version. Taste is somewhat richer. A hop showcase, but that doesn’t necessarily make a kick ass beer. (33cl bottle traded with Maarten, thanks!)

33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Slightly hazy orange colour, white head. Aroma of fruity hops, tangerine, earth, a little liquorice, caramel. Flavour is medium sweet, floral, earthy hops, oranges, nice fruity hoppy bitter finish with a little earth. Light-bodied, just a touch overcarbonated. Tasty. kermis (14553) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle shared from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Pours hazy orange with an off white head. Aroma of grass, citrus, orange, apricot. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Countbeer (6599) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2012
Medium sized head, vast and thicker in structure, creamy in color.
The head changes slowly into a closed lacing.
The beer has a hazy to murky deep orange to amber color.
Smell creamy peach, some vanilla, hint of nettle, gass, some yeast, apricot and some sour fruit tones (think berries and lemon).
Taste is a mix of hops and sour, strange, but actually works out pretty fine: sour fruit, tart, yeasty, than there comes some hops, hop fruits and hop bitters with less to no floral hop tones.
Aftertaste is more bitter than sour with some floral tones and yeast.
Low to medium carbo, soft light creamy mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture.
There is this tart ish something in this beer, an infection? Lactic sour? Does taste like it. Not bad, I quite like it. This beer is nothing really more than a mix of hops (fruits and bitters) and the sour lactic thing. Strange for an IPA, but this would make an interesting sour ale. deanso (10101) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - DEC 9, 2012
