look: 2.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

330ml bottle. Best before 2017-08. Bottled on 2014-08.

A: Cloudy brown. No foam.
S: Plum. Fig. Toasted aroma.
T: Plum. Little grapefruit. Moderate caramel. Moderate bitterness. Dry. Finish is long with slightly sour bitter aftertaste.
M: Medium bodied. Low carbonation.
O: Being labeled as IPA, it's not as hoppy as I expected. It's pretty much a farmhouse style beer, which is not wrong by itself. I consider it's good because the overall flavor is delicious and solid.

From cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. After dinner. Not sure if contamined. No hops feeling nor aroma. Not much IPA. Initial and middle sip fine but some acid in the aftertaste. In some moments I thought that I got used to it and even liked its nose and other times I started disliking it again. Could repeat if sure of fressness. BB date was Aug 2017.

330 ml bottle, Beergium - Collaboration with De Molen. Pours cloudy dark copper with a lightly tanned foamy head. Medium carbonation. Nice lacing. Smell - lightly yeasty, overripe fruits. Taste - Sweet malty foretaste moving rapidly into a dry bitter finish. Nice easy driniking bitter ale.

Dark copper, hazy, with a sticky head. Smells a bit like a dubbel, caramel, malt and Belgian yeast, with an addition of vinegar. Bitter, from the hops, with a metallic taste and with notes of cane sugar, vinegar, white wine.

Amber-copper colour, good head that leaves ring and lace. Aroma of chocolate, dried fruits, raisins, licorice, malt. Medium body, creamy palate, lively carbonation. Taste of chocolate, dried fruits, spices, malt,licorice, marzipan. It's really good but I really can't find any IPA character here.

Pours copper with a fading head.
Nose shows sweet malt, caramel, pine and resinous hops. Very malty.
Malty flavours too but not all that sweet. Massive amounts of bready notes, some soft pine in there. Not all that hoppy.
