A straightforward IPA with all the right elements. Bitter, sharp hops accented by tropical fruit and some scrubby pine. Slightly sticky. Bitter finish. Not too high ABV. A fine balance of malts in the background.

Benzai (15092) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle @ home. Not sure why the description says its "golden in color", as mine is without a doubt hazy orange to dark orange colored, but whatever. Medium sized beige head. Aroma is of malts and hops, lightly resinous. Taste malts, lightly caramel, hops, resin, resinous bitterness and some malt bitter. Sticky texture, medium body and suitable generous carbonation. Quite pleasant.

olsvammel (6843) - rebro, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2016
Bottle from Kihoskh in Copenhagen. Hoppy fruity smell with pine and a caramel maltbase in the background. Similar taste. Medium bitterness. Nice maltbase that lifts the hops. This is probably a bit aged since the hops feels a bit faded. Still a nice beer though. Clean.
