BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brouwerij 't IJ
Netherlands
brouwerijhetij.nl

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
As the latest addition to the brewery’s range, our I.P.A. has already made a name for itself. I.P.A. stands for India Pale Ale, a British type of brew in which the alcohol percentage and hop recipe were boosted so that the beer would survive the long sea voyage to the colonies. This recipe turned out to be a real winner and quickly became popular.

Our I.P.A. is a dark-blonde beer with an emphatic, hoppy flavour. We add hops to the beer during the maturing process as well as the brewing to produce delicious aromas of flowers and grapefruit. A beer with a fruity, bitter aftertaste that lingers for a long time.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tall straight sided wine glass.

Look is a light orange yellow with a frothy white head on top.

Lots of Belgian yeast esters on the nose. Not much hops.

Very Belgian taste with a citrusy hop at the end.

Nice Belgian note.

Was worried I might not find a solid IPA in Amsterdam but this proved me wrong. I will keep an eye out for this one in the States.

Drank at De Buurvrouw.

A: The body is cristalline yellow with a very small white had that has some retention and lacing.
S: The aroma is very citrusy with the resinous profile.
T: The taste is very sweet coming from a mix of malt and oranges. The resinous IPA profile is still there.
M: Low on visible carbonation but a very interesting medium to high body.
O: My last Brouwerij't IJ for a while. I'll follow this brewery for sure, there will be nicer things coming from this.

330 ml bottle, Firmabier - Pours clear golden with a very large white foamy head. Medium carbonation. Nice lacing. Smell - light citrus fruits - melon, light bready. Taste - light, crisp, fresh citrus with a nice dry bitter finish. Refreshing and well balanced IPA. Solid. Check out the brewery taphouse under a windmill in Amsterdam.
