3.53/5 rDev -8.1%
A: Very heady, creamy but dark orangy brown, micro carbonation flowing steadily, massive head.
S: Quite yeasty like a witbier.
T: IPAish, but doesn't have the super hoppy biting characteristic that IPA's have. It's more like a pale ale, leaning toward an IPA, strong grassy hops,
M: light sting, but generally fluffy.
O: a respectable beer, but barely an IPA.

On-tap at Brouwerij 't Ij, Amsterdam, Netherlands
A: The beer is very hazy yellowish amber in color. It poured with a half finger high off white head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose-grapefruit seems to stand out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of grapefruit and orange citrus along with some hints of citric sourness and a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of bitterness. The unfiltered nature makes it slightly chewy.
O: This beer is nice and flavorful and has lots of citrus without tons of bitterness. It is rather easy to drink.

330 ml. bottle. Pours a hazy deep golden colour, with a rich, dense and creamy head that leaves a big lace. Smell of tropical fruits, papaya or mango, flowers, caramel. Medium body, finish is not as bitter as one could think. Taste of tropical fruits, citrus, flowers, nuts. Very good.

On tap at t'IJ brewery, Amsterdam.
Dark amber with creamy lacey off-white head.
Yeasty tang, some toffee and some orange zest.
Round sweet dough with big lemon and tangerine hops.
Earthy yeast finish, mango candy linger.
Lt-med, slight chew, round.
Lighter than the summer blonde somehow. Almost an APA. Clean citrussy hit with good fruitiness.

This brew made some noise around The Netherlands when the first batch came out, so I'm happy to see it available again. Hopefully it becomes a regular in their rotation.
From a bottle into a snifter
Best Before Feb 2014
APPEARANCE: Pours a three finger, looser looking, foamy, off-white head with great retention. Hazy burnt orange in color with an insane amount of carbonation everywhere. Head actually grows as a result, but eventually fades to a huge foam cap and coats the sides of the glass. Carbo just won't quit. A loose, foamy cap remains and leaves lots of foamy lacing down the glass. Totally out of control, but not off-putting per se. Just a classic Dutch foam bomb.
SMELL: Some pale malts and caramel up front with lots of cascade and centennial hops on the nose. That's my best guess at least. Honeydew melon, grapefruit, lemon citrus notes and bubble gum as well. Bold and interesting.
TASTE: Follows the nose nicely. Pale and caramel malts, floral hops with citrus flavors as well. Lemon and grapefruit at the swallow with a bold and lingering finish of cascade bitter grapefruit, lemon, some bubble gum sweetness and a touch of caramel. Flavorful, and a nice bitterness lingers on the palate.
PALATE: Medium body and higher levels of carbonation. Quite creamy smooth on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes slightly mouth-coating. Some bitterness lingers at the back. The carbonation mellows as it sits and it becomes fuller and creamy.
OVERALL: Quite aromatic and flavorful for sure. I really enjoyed this and would drink plenty on a warm day; I just wish the carbonation was executed a little more appropriately. Sometimes these domestic foam bombs just make drinking the beer a chore. Still, this is well worth checking out and hopefully it becomes available more regularly. Recommended.
