Bottled 9/11/14 consumed 10/7/14. Pouring a mildly hazy light orange with a dense, white head with good retention and lacing, this looks great. The nose is solid. Bright, pithy, zesty grapefruit with a mild grassy note. Bitterness is quite pronounced. Lemon oil, a little pine, a mild honey note are all present. Malt character is minimal. The palate opens other a bog,whopping bitterness, pungent, resiny, grassy and with a blend of grapefruit, orange, citrons and lemon verbena. Oily on the mid palate with mild flavors of honey, white bread and tutti fruitti. Light in body with a long lasting bitter finish with plenty of grapefruit and pine,this beer is moderately carbonated and quite excellent on the palate. Apart from the grassy notes, this is an excellent beer.

Got this one at Bert’s Bierhuis in Utrecht. Reviewing this one from notes.

From a bomber into a snifter
Bottled 24 April 2014

APPEARANCE: Pours a 2+ finger, medium looking, fluffy white head with very good retention. A hazy gamboge color with lower levels of carbonation. Head fades to a foamy half cap. A foamy wisp remains leaving some chunky lacing down the sides of the glass. A little too foamy for the style perhaps.

SMELL: Pale malts, melon, grapefruit, lemon and orange peel.

TASTE: Follows nose. Pale malts, caramel, with a bitter, hoppy finish. Grapefruit, lemon bitterness, orange peel and plenty of hop bitterness lingers on the palate. Good stuff.

PALATE: Medium-full body with medium levels of carbonation. Creamy smooth on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes a touch dry. A spicy bitterness lingers. Good feel, and probably the best part of the beer.

OVERALL: A decent brew, but nothing overly noteworthy. Certainly worth drinking if it’s in your area, but not something I’d make a point about. Put together fine and the solid feel makes it an enjoyable drink.

Hmmm not what I was hoping for. But perhaps exactly what the brewer was going for. I am finding if I go for hops taste I need to stay away from imperial IPA or it gets too malty for me. Going back to good old Siera Nevada

A lighter-weight DIPA. Spicy and smooth. There's a fruity note like pears with a bitter edge. Blonde amber in the big chalice. Spritzy and tangy on the tongue. Pleasant grilled peaches taste with a little apricot jam. Just enough bitterness to balance the fruity sweetness.

Really drinkable, and maybe a little too drinkable. Light and not too sweet, but lovely fruit. The alcohol is not very evident. Delicious hoppy aromatics in the background. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at 99 Bottles in Federal Way.
