Teku glass.

A: Amber, burnt orange with big, white head, medium lasting and medium lacing.

S: Light and refreshing aroma. Noticable floral, grassy, citrus (grapefruit) and piney hops with low aroma of tropical fruits in the background. In the end quite distinctive booz aroma.

T: Refreshing taste. Medium-strong, zesty bitterness. Quite noticable citrus hops (grapefruit peel taste) and floral notes, in the end you can taste also some piney character. Low to medium sweet malts taste (bready). Aftertaste is little sweet with characteristic taste of pale malts, which try to balance this.

M: Medium-light body. Semi-dry, but dry, clean and solid bitter finish. Thin texture. Soft carbonation. No alcohol warmth.

O: Drinkable, solid and refreshing AIPA. Nothing good nor bad can suprise you here. Just solid AIPA, but it should be packed more with tropical and citrus taste and aroma.

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.
