Comment: This is an interesting beer, with the heavy hoppiness that should always be there in an IPA, but much lighter than most. Combined with the unusual body, I was going to say it was almost European-feeling – and was then rather surprised to discover that the brewery was founded by a Dutchman! I certainly enjoyed it, and I’m curious to explore the rest of their range to see if that European feel is reflected in their other offerings.
