A very decent IPA with a twist. It has pronounced saaz-like character followed by orange c-hop flavours, the latter more so as it warms. A bit of a foamer, enormous head and lace. Off-white soap on orange body. Distinct American hop aromas. Smooth mouth feel, tingling the palate in the aftermath. Good drinkability.
Thanks Presario.

330ml bottle.

This beer pours with a tumultuous amount of fast-rising loose off-white foam, which necessitates a slow, impatient experience before getting on with things. It does render some pretty, thick-boned webbed lace in the process, however, over an eventual foggy medium golden amber hue, chunky sediment aside.

It smells of sweet and tart orange pulp, a restrained biscuity caramel malt, and some sturdy herbal, leafy, grassy bitterness. The taste is herbal pine needles, soft aged orange and lemon rind, a cracker-mediated caramel sweetness, some very soft earthy yeast, and a wee prick of alcohol.

The bubbles are active and sharply frothy throughout, the body on the thin side of medium weight, and too damned unpredictable to pin down any smoothness proclamations. It finishes off-dry, the somewhat bready malt withering the waning hop siege.

Hops for Lent - why the hell not - they're good for everything else, IMHO. Here, they have to share the bill with an overactive carbonation, yes, but do well to shift focus back. Enjoyable enough, though the time-of-year schtick kind of fails with international shipments like this, and I'm not keeping this one until next spring.

330ml bottle poured into tulip 1/8/12

A murky dark orange liquid with loads of sediment and a two finger cream colored foam that retains well leaving a few partial rings of lace, looks pretty dark for the style

S lots of citrus with a orange marmalade thing going for it, fruity for sure with a little caramel and faint booze, some tropical notes as it warms

T faint pine and grass and a little rind I didn't smell, a little too sweet for the style but still a decent beer

M medium bodied with a couple little chunks, leaves a little behind on the gums and not as sticky as I would guess

O decent beer but it has a odd hop profile, I never really did figure it out before my glass was empty, my glass was empty pretty fast so that says something

worth a try but I wouldn't go searching for it, I liked the nose but other areas were missing just a little something

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a cloudy consistency. A lot of sediment floating around. There was a big, creamy, long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A very subtle aroma of hops, malt, and citrus.

T: Tasted pretty much like it smelled: A good deal of hops (just enough), light malt, and a bit of citrus. Not a groundbreaking flavor, but very straightforward, focused, and balanced.

M: A highly carbonated beer with a crisp, clean finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A solidly made, easy to drink IPA. Drinkable.

Man this is the stuff! Poured at a perfect temperature with a massive billowy cream-colored head that settles slowly, with lots of clingy lace and a hazy honey amber color. Aroma is hops Graham mall. Flavor is like aroma just enough sweetness to balance the bitter and the strong carbonic tang. Perfect mall filling body but not over done. Super drinkable beer

On-tap at Holy Grale at their De Molen Tap Takeover Event.

A - Pours a mirky orange/amber color, frothy white head.

S - Bitter hoppy notes of citrus, grass, some floral with a touch of malt.

T - A little less citrus and more of a grassy/pine bitterness. There's a slight alcohol tinge for only 6.2%. Finish is grassy hoppy bitterness.

M - Light body, good carbonation, oily finish.

O - A nice take on an American IPA and it fits the mold pretty damn well. I would have again, but there's many other IPA's I prefer over this and other styles from De Molen I'd rather have.

Enjoyed from the bottle in a snifter. This AIPA pours a muddled brownish orange with an excellent head of foam that slowly dissipates to a thick layer and ring with great lacing. Nose of caramel malts, lots of orange and grapefruit aromas, bittering hops, and a touch of honey. Flavors follow with citrus and caramel notes on all sides that fades into a bitter hop character and bitter finish. Moderate carbonation and smooth mouth feel. Standard but good.
