Incredibly clear pale orange colour, small head that disappears fast. In the nose there is some malt, some fruits, mainly orange and peach. Bitter finish but there is not much there during the main sip. A bit thin, dry finish, medium carbonation. Rather mediocre but not a bad beer, I would drink this again.

Had on tap.

Amber golden clear color. Thick head that dissapates quickly.

Belgian notes on the nose.

Taste is more of that Belgian flavor. More like a hoppy Belgian golden ale than an IPA.

Not exactly in the IPA category but still good.

smell of citrus: grapefruit, lime. some apricot also , i guess. pine. Full range of ipa
Taste is good balance of bittersweet, but not much exciting going on.
Crisp and refreshing, lingering aftertaste.

Points for effort for the first fairly decent IPA from a Dutch mainstream brewer. A bit more guts and it may go somewhere. You're on to something, don't let it slip!

This IPA pours a rich and brilliant gold, producing a small off-white, creamy head that dissipates quickly. The nose has evident hops and malt. It has a medium-full body with some lingering bitterness. It is much less bitter than expected and has hints of orange marmalade. Nice lacing develops. The finish is short and slightly bitter with hints of peach pits. It is pleasant and not particularly moreish. While it is thirst-quenching it made me hungry. The 7% ABV is not noticeable and may take a drinker by surprise. I would try it again but will not seek it out.

To me, it's not a real IPA or, at least, not how I envision an IPA. Relatively neutral smell, hoppy and chemical. Taste is essentially malty with some biscuit sweetness, yet no sign of fruit at all. There is hops, for sure, but it doesn't feel well integrated, just a bitter taste alongside the malt, nor any of the "resin" tastes that to me make a great IPA great. The finish is rather cloying, like the sensation when you've had an overly sweet dessert and you're desperate for coffee (or a pilsner) to clean your mouth with.

Bottle (expire day 7 August 2017) at P60 cafė in Amstelveen. Not exactly an ipa but had a couple of them cause i liked it and found it drinkable. No hops on the nose, maybe some yests. Good balance on the palate, as i said it's fairly drinkable even though it's supposed to be a "bad" ipa
