A: 1" foamy cream coloured head over murky amber liquid.

T: Watery malt back bone that underpins a hop presence with lime rind, lemon and apricots.
M: Watery and thin viscosity and a medium level of fine carbonation.
O: I have never tried a single hop citra beer before to my knowledge and as a brewer this was a good lesson in its characteristics.

On draft at In De Wildeman, appearence is hazy dirty blonde with sicky, foamy head, white sand colored.
Smell is modestly hoppy citrus.
Taste is bready malt with soft hop citrus flavor.
Mouthfeel is on the lighter, slippery side.
Drinkability is good, solid session ale, but I wouldn't go out of my way to find it.

Hazy amber color with a thick off-white head with good retention.
Delicious sweet aroma of caramel, bread, mango and overripe oranges and pineapples.
Flavor of Belgian yeast, lemon, tangerines, Citra hops, peaches, white grapes, bready malt and brown sugar.
Hints of tea bags. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with good carbonation.
A fruity and citric Belgian IPA neither American nor English) with a superb aroma and good complexity.

On-tap. ½ Pint glass. Enjoyed at the Freiburg on agt´12. Pale golden color. Foggy appearance. Froth is white, close, nearly creamy. Rocky crown leaves copious rings on sides. Strong aromas of pine, citric, tropical fruit & resins. Strong resiny flavor followed by heavy bitterness. Even tough standing up malts against hop attack provide a dense & flavorful palate. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Grapefruit & mango join hops to create a long bitter finish & fruity aftertaste.

3.5 Appearance: Yellow, with a cloudy substance floating around, which looks kind of weird. White creamy foam. Not much foam, but nice lacing.
4.0 smell: Hoppy, citrus, mainly grapefruit.
4.0 taste: There is citrus together with some hoppy bitterness. Finished of with a slightly more bitter grapefruit kick.
4.0 mouthfeel: Thin, but somehow with a more medium finish. Gives it a creamy feel. Medium carbonation.
4.0 Overall: I don't like every "De Molen" beer, but this one goes down quite nicely. It's very refreshing. It's quite bitter, but the fruity undertone mellows it out. Also this one isn't as killing as most of the other "The Molen" beers regarding ABV, making it a nice refreshing summer beer.

330ml bottle, same ol' perfunctorily overdose of information label. Except for the "IPA-ish" notation - whatever could that mean?
This beer pours a hazy medium tarnished golden yellow colour, with three-to-four ambitious fingers of puffy, rocky, pillowy eggshell white head, which leaves a few random swaths of paint splatter lace around the glass as it slowly sinks away.
It smells of tart, somewhat thin generic citrus peel, grainy, lightly biscuit pale malt, softly musty tropical fruit - under-ripe pineapple, grapefruit rind, and edgy mango - a twinge of earthy yeast. The taste is neutered grapefruit, orchard drupe fruit, mandarin orange, biscuity caramel malt, and some late-arriving acerbic pine notes.
The bubbles are a tad sassy, but fall away to their more pedestrian duties soon enough, the body on the veritable light side, and kind of roughly smooth, the citrus edginess coming back to play here. It finishes just off-dry, the caramel-tinged pale malt barely keeping the lingering one-sided, bitter citrus hops at a standstill.
A weird classification here, given the purported effort at aping the hop-crazy Americans, and those Danes who love them. Bitter and citrusy, sure, but all with a sensible restraint, though not quite in the underwhelming vein of the English (style-wise). A decently hoppy, if sort of one-sided seeming IPA, and the ABV does well by its lower-proof nuance. I guess I now grok what the label means by 'ish'.
