2.53/5 rDev -31.6%
Got this from the De Molen beer shop in Bodegraven.
From a bottle into a snifter
Best before 30 March 2014
APPEARANCE: Another Brewfist foamer upon opening. Pours a three finger, medium looking, white head with good retention. Clear gamboge orange with no carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a full foam cap and some foamy lacing clings to the glass. A half wisp remains leaving some decent lacing down the glass. Not bad, but they need to fix this foaming issue.
SMELL: Bread, grainy malts, light caramel, as well as s decent amount of floral and grassy hops on the nose. Still a bit too grainy, but better than Burocracy.
TASTE: Some grainy bread and caramel up front, then lots of floral hops and grassy flavors at the swallow. Bold and relentless finish is bitter, spicy from the yeast, with lots of grassy hops as well. Better than Burocracy, but still not my type of flavor profile. Too grainy and spicy for the style.
PALATE: Better, but not good. Thinner and lighter on the palate with higher levels of carbonation. Slightly airy, goes down okay and finishes dry. Some bitterness lingers. Still too thin and foamy for the style.
OVERALL: These guys just can't seem to get it right. Slightly better than Burocracy, but that isn't saying much at all. Too grainy, thin and foamy for the style. Not worth the calories. Pass on this and try anything else.

Served on tap at local tap house balaclava.
A: extremely good looking beverage. Clean sun orange with low amounts of carbonation rising up the glass and a 2 finger white head which decays to a reasonably think fluffy covering.
S: heaps of zesty orange peal! Some spice but mainly orange being the overwhelming scent recorded on the nose.
T: again some orange, lemon and wow an exploding up front bitterness! A very sharp taste and direct to the point. The thing I don't like is there that it doesnt have the same appealing taste as what the nose and appearance suggest. Astringent, unpleasant lingering flavours follow through down the tounge and stay around the whole mouth.
M: almost sandpapery.. Really not the most enjoyable beer.
O: a great looking beer and smell keeps you interested but that initial taste really doesn't help in any way. I feel as though this would look really good on the cover of a beer mag but no name to say what it is.

S - Grapefruit, peach and mango up front with some sweet honey and caramel aromas present as well.
T - Bitter up front with some tropical fruit and grapefruit notes present. A somewhat dank flavour is present at first that somewhat diminished as I continue to drink the bottle. Some sweet caramel present as well.

Bottle from Beer Deluxe.
A - Dark gold, a little haze, one finger of off white head. Good carbonation. Spotty lace and a film of retention.
S - Citrus fruits, peach, biscuity malt.
T - Peachy, some citrus again, orange. Bready as well with some bitter pineapple. Odd.
M - Good carbonation, light to medium body which shouldn't be so for 7% and a lightly bitter finish.
O/D - Not bad but just a pretty standard IPA. A few off notes like body and lack of bitterness lose it points. Good enough.

Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a nonic.
A: Slightly hazy, golden hue. Pours a slight, bubbly white head. Slight lacing.
S: Pine resin, and honey.
T: Hoppy and bitter. Not much else.
M: Crisp with something of a papery finish.
D: Sipping experience.
Atmosphere is okay. Nose much of a head or lacing. Really sweet piny nose. Bitter hop. Overall, this is an okay quaff.

Served on draught into a half-pint glass at Ma Che in Roma, Italy. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours a two finger head of nice soft cream, great thickness, and excellent retention. Colour is a cloudy semitransparent textbook copper.
Sm: Heavy bittering hops, lemon citrus ester hops, orange peel, and a certain tingly tangy sweetness. Pleasant and complex.
T: Lemon and orange, malt, bittering hops (which are thankfully restrained, avoiding the main pitfall of IPAs), and a full bodied barley foundation. Complex, decently built, and well balanced.
Mf: Smooth, with enough coarseness to bring out the flavours. Wet. A bit too thick.
Dr: High price, easy to drink, and of decent quality.

Another Italian beer ive been looking forwards to trying and pours a fast vanishing one finger head and hardly any lacing at all,the smell is very citrus with aromas of orange,lemon juice,mangoes,pineapple and sherbet,the mouthfeel is just under medium bodied with nice still carbonation and has tastes of piney citrus infused hops,bitter grapefruit,pineapple,mangoes,only the slightest touch of toffee and finished with a sherbet bitterness and overall its definately a one sided hop affair with the malts playing only the slightest cameo and with a few tweaks of the mouthfeel this could have potential but once again another beer you have to try especially if you like your hops cheers.

Dated 30 09 13
Not much white head that falls down fast but clings to the edge on a clear orangey body.
Getting some orange and sweetness. I felt it was a little too cold and after warming a tad I got the signature citra pee smell and some more resinous character.
Carbonation and astringency hits the front of the tongue giving way to citrus hops, resin, and caramel.
Decent IPA but I enjoy their collab pale ale more than this.

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color and has some orange hues along with a light amount of visible carbonation and lots of fine particles visible floating in suspension. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down, leaving a collar of large bubbles around the edge of the glass and delicate lacing covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose along with notes of herbal hops and hints of caramel malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, with flavors of citrusy hops—grapefruit stand out in particular—along with a light to moderate amount of associated bitterness and muted notes of caramel malts. The bitterness persists through the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seemed like it might have originally had a lot of dynamic aromas and flavors from the hops but these got muted in its trip across the Atlantic.

Pours dark amber with a small, off-white head.
Nose shows grapefruit, pine and resin. Underneath is caramel and nutty malt.
Flavours include pine and grapefruit, copious amounts of caramel, followed by an assertive bitterness.
Nice thick mouthfeel.
