3.7/5 rDev -3.6%
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a deep golden amber color with a one finger head of just off white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is on the sweeter side with lots of caramel and some lighter fruit notes of a tropical variety. Along with these are some light aromas of a grapefruit hop as well as a bit of pine.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter caramel taste with a little bit of fruity sweetness. Along with these are some lighter grapefruit hop flavors as well as a little bit of earthy hop. As the taste advances some floral hops increase in intensity with the caramel really getting rather strong toward the end of the taste. The earthy ups it up a bit at the end and with a light herbal flavor that also comes to the tongue leaving one with a sweet, but decently hopped IPA flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side with a carbonation level that is average. The mid range body and carbonation are quite nice for the easy drinking nature of the brew, all while upholding the hop and sweeter flavors nicely.
Overall – A rather easy drinking but quite tasty IPA. Not too high in abv. with a nice blend of hops. While nothing super out of the ordinary, it is rather tasty and at least worth one try.

3.73/5 rDev -2.9%
Orangey amber color with a modest foam in the Kasteel chalice. Pleasantly lively in the mouth. Medium body and rather malty with a sweet background like a DIPA.
Fruity like orange juice with a bitter aftertaste. A toasty, dark flavor along with the bright fruit. Fairly sharp on the tongue. Aromas of honeysuckle and papaya.
This is a clean and perky brew, but quite bitter. The sweet mango and citrus flavors are rich and this seems stronger than it actually is. Not a bad big-hop brew.
