Bottled at Burg Bieren Festival 2012, Ermelo. Very hazy orange colored (probably last part of the bottle), nice head. Very fruity and hoppy nose, fresh. Hopbitter flavor, fruit again, combined with caramel notes. Alcohol nicely hidden. Really my kind of IPA.

TrefwoordPunk (1133) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle 33 cl. Pours hazy brown with a small off-white head and an aroma of malts, caramel, coreander, oranges and hops. The taste is medium sweet with mostly hoppy, bitter notes and a mediumlasting bitter finnish. Not bad.

Alengrin (5187) - BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2014
Commissioned beer that apparently is no longer made. Sticky, creamy head, colour a misty orange blonde. Aroma of green hops, bread, apple, orange peel, honey. Friendly fruity onset with refreshing citrus accent, mellow sweetish maltiness, finish mild aromatic hops, surprisingly low bitterness for a beer which claimed to be an IPA.

Maakun (5183) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2014
Dark golden with bubbly white head, has lots of clumps of yeast flouting around even though I poured very carefully. Big taste of sweet malts, caramel, banana. Quite sticky and sugary with a flowery and fruity hop presence. Quite bitter finish too. Overall its a bit weird and unbalanced, its a nice Belgian ale, with some good hops, but it doesnt work well together for me. The Belgian-style characteristics are way too overpowering.

Flesje van het Beetje truttig etiket, maar dat terzijde, het gaat om het bier. Goudoranje kleur, goede plakkerige kraag. Veel bezinksel dat ik mee ingeschonken heb. Ruikt fruitig, perzik, moutig, vanille. Smaak is moutig, licht zoet met een bittere inslag. De citrushop is er wel, maar zit wat op de achterbank. Redelijk wat body. Goed te drinken.

Sampled from bottle @ Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Decent beer, but not really an IPA at least not what I expected. Aroma has some hops but the taste is not as good.

330ml bottle. Appearance:hazy golden with an average, frothy, 3 fingers off white head, Retention is ok and the lacing is decent. Aroma: Biscuit and oranges with some butterscotch Taste: Biscuit notes, Maraschino & citrus (Dutch chipolata pudding), Light piney, and alcohol peaks through. coockie dough and celery aftertaste. Soft carbonation, medium body A bit too much biscuit notes for a IPA, but still a good beer.

Bosbouw (2874) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2014
Mooie oranje kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt fruit, caramel, hop, orange. Smaakt honing, fruitig, hop, orange. Iets aan de zoete kant, beetje plakkerige structuur. Toch een prima ipa.

tricksta_p (4329) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2014
Cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma of malts, yeast, spices, slight caramel, fruits and hops. Flavour is yeasty, spicy and hoppy, with a nice long bitter aftertaste. Somewhere between a Tripel and a Belgian-style IPA. Either way, I definitely enjoyed this one.

Idiosynkrasie (7318) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Piney hoppy aroma with a herbal touch, caramel malty background. Taste is minimally sweet caramel malty, a touch of nut biscuit, minimally dry, piney and herbal hoppy overtones. OK.
