Koninklijke Brand Bierbrouwerij IPA (7%)

The first sip I took of this Dutch IPA had me exclaiming how good it was.
I’d taken the beer from the fridge and the first swig was really cold and refreshing, kissing me with all the high hoppiness that a nicely chilled IPA will give you.
As the beer warmed the aroma grew thicker and sweeter, all orange marmalade and honey, and once that initial super cold splash had gone the malting started to work its way towards me with caramel and biscuits, brown sugar and puff pastry and the hops started to build from the initial sharp slap of lemon sherbet to give me woody rolling tobacco and oranges, herbal leaves and papaya.
This is very nice indeed.
