3.75/5  rDev +3%

Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a murky semi-dark orange to amber color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. Light sliding lace.
The aroma had some Belgian sugars, light peach, some grassy to hay-like features and some Belgian yeastiness.
The flavor leaned into the Belgian sweet and yeastiness and then developed that peach-like semi-hoppiness, not exactly bitter but noticeably hoppy. Peachy to Belgian sugary aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Somewhat a smooth sort of semi-sticky sweet finish, yet acceptable.
Overall, seemed like more of a Belgian pale ale to me, but probably still one I could do again.

Hazy amber colour; little no head. Typical IPA smell, slightly biscuity, some orange, peppery notes, even a hint of toffee. Flavour is very similar. Dry hoppy finish, medium body. Overall a descent, bur fairly run of the mill IPA.

33 cl bottle poured into my tulip glass

Medium off-white head over faintly veiled orange beer.
Very floral, fruity USA-hops, nice nose, intense but not overpowering. Citrus, marmalade, green tea with orange; dry Hessian hopbales for further aromas. Bitter-fruity, orangezeste, orangemarmalade, tart in the finish; Again somehow floral. Rather spritzy MF, very refreshing; medium bodied; long-lasting flaovurs. Excellent, surprisingly convincing (for a Belgian) IPA. Super start for "Anders".
