On tap from t Ij brewery. Second batch of their IPA. Not your tipical IPA. Less crispy and hoppy than anticipated. More sour or acid. The hops are more for the aroma than the flavour. The yeast brings it closer to the other t Ij brews.

stimulo69 (80) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2012
barnyard, ginger, cooked vegetables, golden, hazy, rocky head, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, medium sourness, medium body, creamy, lively, bitter, Aromas of an unhappy yeast lots of beans, ginger and other strange componenets. In taste quite some bitterness but very low on hop caracther. Not the worst beer but not a typical IPA

Smells light to moderately malty, moderately hoppy, notes of flowers, herbs, orange and mango. Taste light to moderately bitter, orangepeel and a sharp fruityness. Moderate to heavy bitter finish. Medium carbonation, medium body. Decent.

skortila (5596) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2012
On tap @ t IJ. The aroma has a lot of yeasty tones, citrus, some malts. Hazy, orange coloured beer with a slight off-white head. The taste is slightly bitter, has some malty sweetness, yeast, citrus, mango. Not what I expect from an IPA, but anyway, it is a really enjoyable, well made beer.

Pours a hazy orange color with thick white head and medium body. It is not as hoppy and crisp as an american style IPA and seems to be lacking something.

ads135 (4450) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 21, 2012
One of the worst offerings by t IJ, Im sad to say. Took the brewery tour and was told that this was in keeping with an American tradition of IPA brewing (even using American hops), but this seems more similar to British variety. lacks the sharpness of a proper Am. IPA or even a decent Pale Ale. Nice color and aroma, though.

Borresteijn (6713) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2012
On tap at t IJ, ABV 8%. Never thought theyd make this again, nice to see this on our brewpub-crawl. Slightly hazy golden orange colour, thick white head. Aroma of crisp hoppiness, light yeasty, citrus, some mango, caramel. Flavour is medium sweet, flowery, malty, nice tropical fruity citrus bitterness, decent hopbitter finish. Medium bodied. Call me a homer, but I liked this one a lot, one of the better IJ beers and one of the cleanest as well imo (although that doesnt say much).
