bierkoning (10163) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2008
Bottle. Citrus and vanilla in the hoparoma. Firm citric, flowery, slightly perfumed flavor, lingering on in the aftertaste. Yeasty. Very tasty, but not very refined.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 21, 2008
330 ml bottle from sloth - thanks as always man! Pours hazy golden amber with a huge, fluffy white head and lots of dark sediment. Aroma of citrus and spice, sugar cookie dough and shortbread, summer fruit, light floral hops. Flavor of stone fruits, bready yeasts, more of the cookie dough and spice - allspice, coriander and clove - floral and citrus hops. Medium body, blessedly assertive carbonation.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2008
33 cl bottle. Slightly hazy bright orange-golden beer with a massive (massive) rocky white head. It took me a solid 15 minutes to pour this guy. Aroma is very inviting though. Rich yeasty spiciness with lots of clove, pepper, and herbal aromas mixing with the fruity/citrusy hop aroma. Bright light mintiness with lots of candyish/fruity esters. It’s not as obviously hoppy as something like Houblon Chouffe, but there is plenty of hop aroma and bitterness to bring it into IPA territory. Zesty and perfumy with a lovely citrus and spice hoppiness that accents the crackery base malts and the rich yeastiness perfectly. Very tasty.

caesar (5063) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2008
Bottled. Hazy yellow color, thick frothy head. Aroma of grain, slight herbal, slight citrus, hop. Sweet grainy taste, quite bitter taste, though nothing compared to an american IPA. Nice.

trufflepig (12) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Bottle was way over carb’d and 1/2 of it shot out of the bottle upon opening like champagne. Taste was mildly malty, semi sweet with hardly any hop aroma or bitterness. The over-carbonation made it difficult to taste it. Very foamy. Disappointing and no where close to an IPA nor hopped as advertised. Lack-luster and would not purchase it again.

omhper (19333) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2008
Bottled at the Struise farm. Cloudy golden, small head. Rich grassy aroma. Dry depsite some underlying ,alt sweetness. Medium bodied with grassy hops, grainy malt and winegum esters. Long salty bitterness. A very tasty, really hoppy Belgian ale.

badgerben (4395) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2008
I walked into work last weekend to find BDR filling a second glass full of foam from opening this one. Encouraging start... when it all finally settled down, we were left with a cloudy gold color brew with a formerly ginormous head. Very faint aroma of hops. The taste is quite floral and hoppy. Light Munich malt and a dry yeast finish.

nuplastikk (4347) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2008
11.2 Belgian grenade bottle, which began gushing out immediately upon opening. After getting it under control, it poured a thick, yeasty golden color with a large foamy head. Lots of hops come through in aroma and taste, but the creamy yeastiness keeps it highly drinkable. A very well done beer by one of Belgium’s newest players.

LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2008
11.2oz Bottled labeled as Extra IPA restyled. 2007 vintage. Pours cloudy golden in color with full foamy white head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty and sweet. Taste malty, piney and very bitter with bitter finish.
