3.7/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours cloudy amber-tan with stiff piles of eggshell foam. Nose is faint caramel, bruised peach and orange rind. Toffee apple malts with vague caraway/vanilla bean yeast spice then pine resin and fresh apricot hops. Bitter finish. Soft, round, medium, some heat, cloys a bit.

According to the label:
Bittered with Galena
Chinook, Cascade, Simcoe and Amarillo late hops
Dry hopped with Cascade
42 IBUs

That label info should have been a clue: why go crazy with the hop bill, only to give an APA-level of bitterness?
And though it says this can age for up to 5 years, with a June 29th bottle date, at 4 months it already seems to have lost some hop brightness. Hop complexity does deepen as it warms; serve this at cellar temp.

Burns too much to be an APA, not hoppy enough to be an IPA. Swampy hops, weak malts, and then that yeast... Belgian IPA? Not sure what this is trying to be.

2nd de Molen beer, and haven't been blown away yet.

Pretty sure vuur & vlam means fire and flame but thats what ive heard from better sources and obviously this brew comes in the same standard 750ml De Molen bottle with the standard label and after looking at the label i gotta admit there is alot of hops used here which im looking forward to as i do rate this brewery and know they can produce good brews,anyway this is bottle 133 from 570 brewed on the 28th of november 2009 bottled on the 4th of january 2010 and pours a cloudy apricot hue with really nice carbonation that leaves behind a frothy white two finger head that slowly subsides to a frothy mound in the middle of the glass with heaps of lacing everywhere,the aroma is a really nice fruity perfume mix of grapefruit,lemon,lime,stonefruit and piney hops,the mouthfeel is rather smooth but could be more carbonated with nice tastes of grapefruit,toffee malts and finishes with a good dose of piney hops that leaves behind a nice taste of bitterness on the palette but doesnt over do it and yeah its very drinkable and i could drink all night if it was a little cheaper but in saying that its a top quality take on a northwest IPA from a brewery that is in europe will definately buy again.

Hazy amber color with an abundant off-white head with good retention that goes till the end of the tasting.
Aroma of tropical fruits and citrus, hints of passion fruit.
Very well balanced beer, sweet malty flavor with a fruity and citric and bitter taste, presence of grapefruits and tangerine.
Medium to full body with a good carbonation and an effervescent sensation at start.
Had it their Op & Top first, which is also very good and then this, got even better! Excellent beer, difficult to say what to change.

Bottled 12/21/10, bottle # 436. 7 months old but what the hell.

A: Cloudy dark amber with a ridiculously huge white head that never seems to fade. Tons of lacing stuck everywhere.

S: Despite the age the hops are still quite fragrant. Definitely a decent variety in this. There's citrus, pine and grass that I can tell. Distinct simcoe smell. Some bread hiding in there too. Quite nice.

T: Still quite hoppy. Perhaps not as strong as when it was fresh maybe but it's still there. There's orange, pineapple and grapefruit, some pine in the middle, joining with grass on the tail end. Bitter pine and grass sticks through the aftertaste quite well. There is a bit of a medicinal herbal flavor floating around too, again mostly in the aftertaste. Herbal flavor starts to come out stronger in the aftertaste as the beer warms and starts to detract slightly, otherwise this would be higher rated. A bit of caramel sort of coats everything.

M: Lots of carbonation for that tingly mouthfeel. Lasting bitterness suits it well and joins in.

O: Wish I could have tried this fresh, I wonder how it compares. It is still very hoppy and tasty though. Not a malt bomb by a long shot. Worth grabbing if you see it somewhere local.

lFair IPA, settled on the hops, and yet with a pleasing bitter sense.

Presentation: 33 cl brown, capped bottle. Standard De Molen Label, text over white background detailing the characteristics of the brew. O.G. 1058, F.G. 1012, EBC Colour 22.2 Hop bill, EBUs 42.6. Adds recommended drinking temperature, and cellaring range (up to 5 yrs.). Shows brewing and bottling date (11 March 2010, 12 April 2010), and that this is bottle 320 out of a1210 33cl bottles batch, alongside Alc. by Vol. (6.2%). Served in a tulip glass.

A - Hazy deep amber pour. Towering head with problems to settle down... Quite a beauty.

S - Aroma is soft, faded at this point I guess... But still pleasant with a light hoppy touch, light grapefruit with a sweet malt touch.

T - Bitter sense, not so much a full range but a good bitter touch, touch of faint resin and citrus under the bitter coating, but again, not much in the way of complexity or range of hops at this point. Pleasing malty touch in the back, dash of caramel.

M - Medium body with medium to medium/low carbonation, good tingle in the tongue flowing with the final bitter finish.

D - Aged IPA by design... It still drinks pretty well with a pleasing feel.

Notes: Certainly not by far a remarkable De Molen brew, and sure enough despite the rage, mine included, for fresh and rich hops, they can also (and were supposed) to preserve a brew well, and this still is a good drinker albeit shortly it will hit the one year mark. I'd love to put my hands on a fresh one though... Thanks Toño for another De Molen treat.

Got this at the Mitra down the road. I've had this beer a few times, but never reviewed it. Buying it at the Mitra is pretty cool, so we'll celebrate with a review.

From a bottle into a snifter
Bottled on 14 May 2012

APPEARANCE: Slowly foamed out after opening, even after being in the fridge for a while. Pours a huge, three finger, looser, off-white head with steadfast retention. Color is a slightly hazy amber orange with higher levels of carbonation. Head just doesn't'quit, and gets looser and more pot holed as I wait. Eventually fades to a full wisp and leaves lots of chunky lacing down the glass. Too fluffy and carbonated a look for the style. Head was out of control.

SMELL: Medium nose of pale and caramel malts, some light floral hops aromas and plenty of grassy stuff. Decent, though not quite forthcoming enough, and not really what I'd expect from an American IPA.

TASTE: Starts out empty, unfortunately. Some pale malts, then some melon sweetness and lots of floral hops bitterness at the swallow. Milder yet lingering finish of bitter floral hops, some melon sweetness, and light grapefruit and citrus notes. Alright, but not all that complex or impressive, especially at the beginning.

PALATE: Totally off for the style. Light, thin body and overly carbonated. This beer pretty much always turns out like this, so I can only assume it's intentional. Creamy enough, but goes down very airy and finishes slightly dry on the palate. Not my style at all.

OVERALL: This is listed as an American IPA, but the look at feel resemble more of a Belgian pale ale. Overly carbonated, light and fluffy, the feel just doesn't help this beer's cause. If you're a fan of American IPA's, this won't do the trick. If you want a Belgian pale ale with a hop kick, this might be your thing. For me, I only drink this on occasion when I'm in the mood for something hoppy and there's nothing else around. Fortunately there's usually an insanely delicious imperial stout or barleywine available, so it's rare that I go to De Molen looking for a hop kick. Avoid.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Great look, with a blinding white head that starts big and foamy and crackles very audibly to a thinner layer. The burnt-orange/rust color is just a shade soupier than your usual IPA. Overall this thing looks top-notch.

Smells American-ish, just one or two tiny twists away from something you could imagine Sierra Nevada brewing. And that twist could be some kind of hop variety that's not playing well with the others, or possibly the way these hops are combined in the recipe: Galena, Chinnok, Cascade (Sierra Nevada's go-to), Simcoe and Amarillo. Gives off a kind of nutty vibe, and it's quite the herbal smell, as well, reminding of various Asian spice mixes you cook Thai or Vietnamese cuisine with. A bit toasty, with a vibe of young/unripe oranges and tangerines. Certainly interesting, although slightly weird.

Same interesting hoppy profile in the taste as in the aroma. Something jutting out with nut-husk coarseness and a big, intense herbal layer. Cascade hops definitely make their presence known. Overall this is a beer with a big, aggressive flavor. On the drier side too, with a pronounced herbal bitterness in the finish that fades fairly quickly.

Clearly a European beer that's highly inspired by American IPAs, but this shouldn't be held up to the greats of the U.S. west coast. Rather, it should be approached as a twist on that whole deal. Pretty good stuff, but I'm still waiting to try a De Molen beer that's as good as Heaven & Hell. They totally nailed it there.

A 330ml bottle with a bottled-on date of May 14th 2012. Purchased from Trembling Madness in York a little while back, and stored in my fridge. Five hop varieties and two types of yeast - crazy...

Poured into a Delirium chalice. Bottle conditioned and highly carbonated upon opening. A hazy golden-amber hue with plentiful carbonation and visible sediment. Produces a vast head of fluffy white foam with superb retention; it resembles a meringue. This slowly reduces to a thick surface layer, leaving plenty of lacing behind. I wish I'd used my Duvel tulip instead! Aroma of fruity hops and Belgian yeast. Notes of white grapes, melon, mango, passion fruit, peach and citrus, accompanied by phenolic yeast esters, mild spice and a warming hint of booze. Fantastic.

Tastes of fruity hops and earthy Belgian yeast, underpinned by a hint of light, grainy malt. Notes of melon, white grapes, mango, tropical fruit, peach, citrus, fruity yeast esters, faint clove, phenolics, mild spice, herbs, stewed hops and a warming whiff of background alcohol. Dry and yeasty, with a stinging bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, spicy and tingly, with good carbonation and nice body. Stimulates the tongue and dries the palate. Aftertaste of fruity aromatic hops, Belgian yeast and a herbal bitterness.

Very tasty - lovely hop presence. More Belgian IPA than American, with tons of fruity hop notes followed by a more restrained yeast character. Dry and spicy; the balance between hops and yeast is carefully achieved. Lovely body - goes down like a dream. A quality brew, and an example of a successful Belgian-style IPA. Well worth trying if you come across it.

The beer is clouded amber, has a large off-white head taht settles slowly and a bit unevenly, leaves good lacing.

The smell is citric, bitter oranges, grape-fruit, peaches and melons. Some floral notes, grass, pine needles and resin.

Some toffee and brown bread initially, then grape-fruit peel, oranges, and a good grassy bitterness.

Medium carbonation, intense small bubbles, a good body and a long dry finish.

A fresh hop intense IPA.

A - Pours orange with a thick creamy foam. There is an awesome amoutn of lacing ont he glass. Looks like some sediment swirling in the glass. Just a very inviting looking brew.

S - Scents of simcoe hops with notes of fresh apricot and citrus.

T - The fruity sweetness int he intial taste gives to a hoppy medley and ends with an astrigent bitterness. The finish is a little harsh, but overall a nice taste.

M - A strong IPA with a rugged finish. If you are okay with pungent bitterness this will drink well.

O - A great find amd glad to try this one. Recommended for those who like their IPA's bold.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

330 ml bottle with freshness date. Poured into a wine glass. Produced a rather impressive crowning white head with amazing retention, great lacing. Colour is a honey brown. Stunning.

Smell has a bitting citrus fruitiness. Lots of grapefruit peel, some astringent sourness. Some biscuity malt. Pretty intense citrus, close to something like grapefruit pledge, except with a nice honey malt undertone.Very fragrant and interesting.

Taste follows the nose, earthy, leather, mouth-pluckering grapefruit and slight pine needles. Foam is mildly herbal hop bitterness. A light oiliness and honey holds it together, more perceptible yeast. Bitterness probably could use more malt to back it up, a fair bit of sour citrus is a dominent. More balanced to the end, finishes dry and oily hopped.

Mouthfeel is moderate, nice and refreshing, though slightly watery, carbonation is moderate. Quite frothy, a bit of alcohol spice on the end.

Probably the most impressive head and retention I've come across on an IPA. This is certainly an interesting and different IPA. I enjoyed it, a bit dominated by the hops, but it takes a slightly different approach from most American brews, more yeasty I find. De Molen has produced another quality offering, worth trying.

a deep american ipa with a quality range of palate and bittering. Nice yellow orange with a lacy head. Hints of belgian sweetness that is well backed with grassy pine. Sweetened pineapple, lemon notes, and the vietnamese triple green of cilantro, mint and chinese basil bittering. Clear a great beer for the rich side of vietnamese food.

Picked up three 750ml bottles (corked and caged) from De Bier Koning in Amsterdam, by recommendation from the shop keep after asking for a good American style IPA, and poured it into a stemmed tulip glass.

On the Bottle:
Bittered with Galena
Chinook, Cascade, Simcoe and Amarillo late hops
Dry hopped with Cascade
42 EBUs

A: Pours a hazy and unfiltered blond/brownish hue with a thick creamy head, leaving massive amounts of lacing in its tracks. Very chunky sediment in all three 750's I purchased - a bit too much for my liking which is why I gave it a 3.5 in appearance.

S: Big piney hops, citrus notes, unique yeast smell, sweet and sugary with toasted malts in the mix as well.

T: Big cascade blast up front, citrus bight, very buttery and nutty, roasted malts, sweet candy sugar flavors and for some reason there's a slight Oud Bruin flavor in there that I thought might just be me, but when I shared one with my brother this past Thanksgiving, he tasted the same flavor - it's very faint but adds a nice dimension to the overall flavor.

M: Medium bodied, sticky and creamy with a good amount of carbonation.

D: Very drinkable and tasty, but man those chunks floating towards the bottom of my glass geek me out. I'd like to see this cleaned up a bit, but otherwise great take on a style that is often misinterpreted overseas.

Brewed on 11/19/2010
Bottled on 12/21/2010
Bottle number 1440.

BottleStates that this beer will be good for 5 years if kept in a cool dark place. Beer was stored for 4.5 years in a cool dark place with temperature control.

Poured from the bottle into a goblet.

Pours a cloudy amber color with a white head that dissipates quickly. Some sediment noted even with a steady, careful pour.

Smells of port wine, Madeira, fresh raison, figs. Definitely oxidized along the way dispute the correct storage. I had this years ago and it was super hoppy. I get none of that now, just oxidation.

Tastes of port, Madeira, oxidized beer, disappointment. Definitely tastes oxidized. Again I had this beer 2 years ago and it was hoppy as fuck and delicious. Although is says 5 years, this is one you may want to drink sooner. Perhaps the retail store stored it improperly. Anyhow...taste is awful if we are looking at an American IPA...otherwise it has a grassy, earthy, funky flavor of oxidized beer.


Mouthfeel is lame...just lame.

Overall if you are having this fresh then it's prolly awesome. Otherwise it's gonna suck oxidized...but it's a learning experience either way so fuck it!!!


Cheers!

Hazy golden sunflower yellow, capped with a sudsy white foam. This looks like a Hefeweizen but smells like an APA, pleasantly hoppy, very floral and citric but not too assertive. Big on lemon and geranium, with mango, passion fruit, and grapefruit as well. Malts and yeast present as but an estery spectre of white wine.

The beer delivers much more malt when you taste it, but this is still a hoppy beer, from beginning to end. Toasted biscuits slathered with orange marmalade, pine resin, grapefruit, and pineapple, with a chewy, frothy feel. Juicy but dry and just a little bit like sucking on raw hop cones. Just a little. Nice beer – I'd happily drink this any day of the week, any week of the year.

Picked this up at the beer store at the De Molen Brewery. Hazy amber-copper pour with huge three finger head, with great retention and lacing. Really complex and unique floral, perfumey, citrus, nose with hints of ginger, peaches, pineapple, apples, and pine with a touch of soap. As it warms, a solid caramel maltiness emerges. The taste is just as complex and just as bold. Great fresh hoppiness with a nice solid caramel backbone. Loads of bitter pine and grapefruit nicely complemented by the sweet malt. Also getting ginger and a touch of cinnamon along with a little soapiness. The mouthfeel is thick and chewy but creamy and smooth as well with a great tangy finish. Vuur & Vlam literally translates to Fire & Flame, which aptly describes this great offering from De Molen.

Poured in a riedel magnum red wine glass, from a 330 ml bottle

A:Pours a pretty deep golden/orange color, with a thick and persistent head.

S: Wow, this is really intriguing, it reminds me of mango, peaches, and cooked/dry apricots. There's also a really nice white truffle smell, almost like stuff you get in overripe or botrytis attacked white grapes used for dessert wines. The beer shows similarities with the roussane grape based wines.

T: This is pretty good, quite balanced. Hops are not as aromatic as they were on the nose, but it's still pretty hoppy, with a great dry finish.

O: I really like it, with a smell reminiscent of american style IPAs, and a mouthfeel halfway between european and american style IPA. I'd smell that all day... Great buy

Found at a random place, Baguetteria del Fico, by the Pantheon in Rome. It was 80+ and I wanted an IPA that I hadn't had before and this is what the owner seggested.
Poured from a very cold bottle into a plastic teku glass. I wanted a cold beer an wasn't going to bitch.
First glance was great. A light golden hue with a finger, maybe two, of foam which slowly faded.
Amazing floral aroma which stayed as long as the beer. The wife, who has a nose like a bloodhound, LOVED the scents coming from this, as did I.
While I'd stop short of calling this amazing, it's a damn good IPA that was not expected since a) I wasn't looking for a craft beer bar and b) didn't know De Molen made a great IPA.
Not sure if this is distro'd in the US, but if so, definately give it a go.

33 cl. , bottled 24 june 2011.

This is a great example of beer to me. De Molen usually makes great brews, and this one is just right, particularly in the style of ipa.

Looks orange brown, beige head. Great carbonation.

Smell and taste fresh. Peach, apricot, citrus, pine, green tea. Massive bitterness that stays in the mouth. Spicy bite in the aftertaste. Tough but balanced. Refreshing overall.

750ml bottle.

Opaque murky brown. Not an attractive colour in the classical sense. Massive head slowly recedes leaving chunky turbulent looking foam kind of like what you see near river rapids. Gob loads of sediment just adds to the poohey charm. Cool.

Smells of caramelised sugars, fairy floss and sweet citrus, most notably mandarin.

Sweetness again dominates the taste. Lemon sherbet, pineapple and ripe melons. All shit I love, but the flavours seem to get confused or lost in a homogeneous, almost muddy flavour after a while.

High carbonation partially responsible for a slightly harsh and sizzly bitterness, which is a shame because otherwise I could guzzle a tonne of these.

Overall quite an addictive drop for me that I'd love to try fresh

Couldn't choose between this and Amarillo. Asked staff at Le Cheval Blanc and was suggested this one. Lots of info on the bottle. I wish more brewers did this.

33cl bottle label says: Bottle 0258. Brewed on Nov 6th, Bottled on Dec 8 2009. Only 712 bottles made. Lucky me.

A- Very hazy dirty peach topped by a mass of tightly knit, dirty white foam. Super head retention. It almost looks still. Careful while pouring, you might end up with a glass full of head.

S- Smells very good right from the bottle. Like a lychee gelly snack. Poured into De Ranke tulip. Great fresh lychee smell. Love it. Then comes a hint of grapefruit and a whole lot of orange julep. Alcohol is a little hot. Looks good, can't wait to taste.

T-Woah. This is really boozy. Tastes a bit like a grapefruit rind vodka drink. not much maltiness left in here so it kind of surprised me, being used to more American malt profiles when dealing with these kinds of hops.
Still a great taste and a different experience. Might be a tad bit watery. Also the more I taste it the more I seem to taste vodka.

M-Greatest part of this beer. Light but full, prickly but pillowy. Foams up and finishes dry. I wish more beers could be like this.

D-Good. clean, light feel make it easy. On the other side, super interesting flavor but rough vodka taste make it a bit harder to drink.

Cool beer. Fun to drink. I'd buy it again if I found it in stores. I do recommend it but it's not completely nuts. It all felt pretty fresh even with a year on it. Glad i tried it even for $ 10.50

2 ounce bottle from glouglouburp. Pours a muddy/hazy wheat tangerine with a thick and creamy head and soapy lacing. Nose- iced tea and over ripe tropical fruit. Taste- zippy hop bite with a dish soap overtone, and sweet caramel malts and then astringent bitterness. Seems more like a strong pale ale then ipa with the malt bill and level of hopping, although not all that drinkable compared to a good APA. Solid level of carbonation and medium mouthfeel.

S: Berries, Citric notes, Flowers, Caramel.

T: Grass, Citric notes, Berries (raspberry mainly), Hint of butterscotch and pine.

M: Qute hoppy but the hops used works nicely together with the malty caramel backbone. Carbonation is medium and the liquid feels quite soft.

A - A white head that relative quickly retracts. Underneath this white cloud lies a clear golden fluid.

S - Citrus and pine along with some mango slices.

T - A reasonable full body with pine, citrus and mango flavors, nice!! It is however the aftertaste that kills this beer, it is a bit mucky.

M - The bitter aftertaste is to strong in this one, even a bit unpleasant.

O - A reasonable IPA, but I think it has been to long on the shelf.
