Brouwerij de Molen
De Molen Vuur & Vlam (Fire & Flames) IPA
Brewery: De Molen
Style: IPA - India Pale Ale
Format: 330ml Bottle
Vuur & Vlam is an overly hopped beer. Yet, it's not aggressive in it's bitterness or too grassy from the hops. We mainly retrieve the fruit and floral aromas from the hops. Giving it a huge hop character without the nasty bitterness.
The beer is a delicious American-style IPA. Very hop-driven with Galena for bittering, late hopping with Chinook, Cascade, Simcoe and Amarillo and also dry-hopped with Cascade.
But for all the fruity and resinous hop flavours, there is a lovely balance with a caramel malt body to carry the bitterness.
