330 ml bottle, Firmabier, Netherlands - Pours cloudy amber with a large white foamy head. Medium carbonation. Nice lacing. Smell - citrus to the the fore, grapefruit with a few floral notes. Taste - slight sweetness, citrus fruits with a dry bitter finish. Good but needs more hops for my tastes.

For an AIPA just a slight taste of hops, good choice for a not too strong sider

On-tap at Cafe Belgie, Utrecht, Netherlands

A: The beer is clear amber orange in color and has the faintest hints of carbonation. It poured with a dense off white head that died down, leaving wispy lacing on the surface, a collar around the edge and lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Aromas of citrusy and spicy hops are present in the nose along with caramel malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has hints of malty sweetness along with a complex mixture of hop flavors and a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is a very nice and refreshing Dutch version of an IPA that seems a little maltier compared to American counterparts and is well balanced.

Deep golden colour, near to orange. Small head that leaves a good ring and lace. Smell of cloves, spices, tropical fruits, pomelo. Medium body, fizzy carbonation, dry palate. Taste of clove, tropical fruits, pomelo, spices. Bitter finish. Good.

Fine pored, creamy white head. Opalescent dimmish appearance. Medium amber color. Fresh smell, floral-hoppy, a slight scent of caramel or honey. Taste of fresh grapefruit peel, hoppy, slightly smokey, spicy, some licorice. Creamy carbonation, well-balanced, hoppy, bitter, slightly sweet and lingering finish with a fruity note. Overall a nice IPA with a less fruity, but more caramellized style. The Dutch way to make an American IPA.
