Ölbeat 134: The Flying Dutchman Tree Hugging Wood Chopping Mother-Nature Loving IPA

Brewery: The Flying Dutchman Nomad Brewing Company
Country: Finland (brewed in Belgium)
Style: India Pale Ale
Abv: 6 %
What about the beer?
Colour is fuzzy orange with some sediment and a two-finger thick fluffy white head. Aroma has grapefruit, orange and mango. Taste starts with fruity and strong bitterness. Fresh grapefruit takes over with soft bitterness and orange peel. Towards the end dry pine and sour lemon show up. Aftertaste has dryness and bitter grapefruit.

Tasty citrus-packed India Pale Ale. Fresh, fruity, bitter and dry. Some special features but shortly and simply: easy-drinking, well-made and balanced IPA.


I shouldn't match a beer with a folky children's song, should I? Well, there are several other things I shouldn't have done but already have. Actually, this one has the easy-going mood of the brew so I'm probably saved from the anger of child protection organisations.
