4/5 rDev +5.3%
£4 for 330ml bottle from Brewdog:
Slightly cloudy, orange to amber colour with a big looking head that is part foamy, part bubbly. There is some lacing left on the sides after a minute.
Citrus aroma to begin as expected and backed up with some subdued tropical fruits that consist mainly of mango and pineapple along light grapefruit and pine.
Citrus then some grapefruit and pine, both of which are a lot stronger here than in the nose. There is a lot of hoppy bitterness as well and the mango from the nose is in there too. Quite a nice tasting beer and easy to drink.
Medium bodied with a crisp refreshing feel, a nice citrus tang and some lively carbonation. The bitterness is definitely noticeable but it's not overdone.
A solid IPA and definitely well worth trying, not as strong or as bitter as some of the American style craft beers but a very welcome change. The beer was well-balanced and very easy to drink.

4.13/5 rDev +8.7%
A: Pours a clear light orange color, with a large creamy white head with slowly fades to a thin layer.
S: Smell is of citra, which is nice! Tropical fruits( mango, pineapple), some citruses, some yellow fruits (apricot), quite resinous, also a little bit vegetal. Very expressive nose.
T: Taste is not as expressive as the nose, but still good with tropical fruits and citruses. Some malt background that sweeten the palate, but a nice length on hoppy flavors (coming through waves). The bitterness is quite low given the fruitiness of this beer.
M: Mouthfeel is nice, a bit creamy, but the beer remains crisp and refreshing. Heavier than expected from the ABV which is nice.
O: A good example of the style, pretty much on citra, which I like, however better on the nose than on the palate. After all, a very good brew for a thirsty throat.

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.
