Got this from the De Molen beer shop in Bodegraven.

From a bottle into a snifter
Best before 30 March 2014
IBU: 70

APPEARANCE: Another Brewfist foamer upon opening. Pours a three finger, medium looking, white head with good retention. Clear gamboge orange with no carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a full foam cap and some foamy lacing clings to the glass. A half wisp remains leaving some decent lacing down the glass. Not bad, but they need to fix this foaming issue.

SMELL: Bread, grainy malts, light caramel, as well as s decent amount of floral and grassy hops on the nose. Still a bit too grainy, but better than Burocracy.

TASTE: Some grainy bread and caramel up front, then lots of floral hops and grassy flavors at the swallow. Bold and relentless finish is bitter, spicy from the yeast, with lots of grassy hops as well. Better than Burocracy, but still not my type of flavor profile. Too grainy and spicy for the style.

PALATE: Better, but not good. Thinner and lighter on the palate with higher levels of carbonation. Slightly airy, goes down okay and finishes dry. Some bitterness lingers. Still too thin and foamy for the style.

OVERALL: These guys just can't seem to get it right. Slightly better than Burocracy, but that isn't saying much at all. Too grainy, thin and foamy for the style. Not worth the calories. Pass on this and try anything else.

Best before 30 May 2015 as stated on the back of the bottle. Poured from a 330ml bottle into a La Chouffe tulip glass.

A: The beer poured a nice copper orange with some haze caused by some small particles suspended. One finger white head.
S: Citrus aromas hit first with some light pine and light caramel malt.
T: Bitter and malt with light grapefruit and some other citrus. Interestingly leaves a mango aftertaste. However the fruit flavours were not really strong and did not last long which was unfortunate.
M: Light body with medium/high carbonation.
O: The beer poured nice and smell kept me interested but I think the taste failed to live up to expectations from the initial pour. The taste just seemed to be missing something which was unfortunate as everything else seemed pretty good… except that taste is probably the most important… I probably wouldn’t buy this again.

Served on tap at local tap house balaclava.

A: extremely good looking beverage. Clean sun orange with low amounts of carbonation rising up the glass and a 2 finger white head which decays to a reasonably think fluffy covering.

S: heaps of zesty orange peal! Some spice but mainly orange being the overwhelming scent recorded on the nose.

T: again some orange, lemon and wow an exploding up front bitterness! A very sharp taste and direct to the point. The thing I don't like is there that it doesnt have the same appealing taste as what the nose and appearance suggest. Astringent, unpleasant lingering flavours follow through down the tounge and stay around the whole mouth.

M: almost sandpapery.. Really not the most enjoyable beer.

O: a great looking beer and smell keeps you interested but that initial taste really doesn't help in any way. I feel as though this would look really good on the cover of a beer mag but no name to say what it is.

30 07 13. 2312 on label

A - Slightly cloudy medium yellow with deeper orange colour in the middle. Thin layer of off-white head.

S - Grapefruit, peach and mango up front with some sweet honey and caramel aromas present as well.

T - Bitter up front with some tropical fruit and grapefruit notes present. A somewhat dank flavour is present at first that somewhat diminished as I continue to drink the bottle. Some sweet caramel present as well.

M - Medium body with some good hop oils present. Moderate carbonation.

Bottle from Beer Deluxe.

A - Dark gold, a little haze, one finger of off white head. Good carbonation. Spotty lace and a film of retention.

S - Citrus fruits, peach, biscuity malt.

T - Peachy, some citrus again, orange. Bready as well with some bitter pineapple. Odd.

M - Good carbonation, light to medium body which shouldn't be so for 7% and a lightly bitter finish.

O/D - Not bad but just a pretty standard IPA. A few off notes like body and lack of bitterness lose it points. Good enough.

Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a nonic.

A: Slightly hazy, golden hue. Pours a slight, bubbly white head. Slight lacing.

S: Pine resin, and honey.

T: Hoppy and bitter. Not much else.

M: Crisp with something of a papery finish.

D: Sipping experience.

Atmosphere is okay. Nose much of a head or lacing. Really sweet piny nose. Bitter hop. Overall, this is an okay quaff.

Served on draught into a half-pint glass at Ma Che in Roma, Italy. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a two finger head of nice soft cream, great thickness, and excellent retention. Colour is a cloudy semitransparent textbook copper.

Sm: Heavy bittering hops, lemon citrus ester hops, orange peel, and a certain tingly tangy sweetness. Pleasant and complex.

T: Lemon and orange, malt, bittering hops (which are thankfully restrained, avoiding the main pitfall of IPAs), and a full bodied barley foundation. Complex, decently built, and well balanced.

Mf: Smooth, with enough coarseness to bring out the flavours. Wet. A bit too thick.

Dr: High price, easy to drink, and of decent quality.
