Bottle courtesy of YGTBSM94 poured a hazy gold with a lasting creamy ivory head. Aromas of yeast, orange zest, tangerine and light straw. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of straw, orange zest, yeast and a hint of spice with a smooth moderatly bitter finish.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 11, 2009
It is hazy, warm golden with sediment and a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of yeast, citrus, malt and fruit. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of yeast, citrus, malt, light spice and the finish is hoppy and slightly bitter. It is an OK Belgian IPA, even if I prefer an IPA without the Belgian yeast.

Bov (9799) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 29, 2010
from crackedkettle.com - cloudy dark orange colour with a solid white foam left; nice lacework; yeasty and fruity (pear and grapefruit), spicy; juicy palate, quite full-bodied and very bitter, quite dry with an aftertaste of bitter oranges and a touch of almonds - very nice

FatPhil (9616) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 22, 2009
330ml bottle (One Pint Pub, Helsinki, Belgian Beer Weeks 2009)
Aerosol air freshener aroma - floral. Lively carbonation. Big hoppy taste, but also very alcoholic. Finish is children’s sweets - sherbet - and alcohol. Too boozy, and the hops stand out as a gimmick.

hopdog (9189) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2009
11.2oz bottle acquired in trade with SoLan (thanks!). Poured a medium and cloudy yellow color with a huge sized (5 finger) white head. Aromas of yeast, floral, some citrus, and spicy. Tastes of yeast, a little fruity, citrus, and spicy. Lively body.

Drake (8993) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2009
11.2 ounce bottle from Wine & Beer Westpark in Richmond, VA. The bottle has 2007 printed on it but also says restyled so I’m rating it here. Pours a hazy peach color with tiny floating particles. Large frothy head with good head retention and lacing. Bready, caramel aroma with strong citrus hops as well as peach and other fruity notes. Taste is bitter citrus hops, some bread. Medium bodied.

Sammy (8942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2008
Recently brought back from State Line Liquors. Absolute bomb explosion of foam - it wasn’t moved in days. A third left in bottle of citrus IPA, and the foam not shot out. A lemonbalmy aroma with the fragrant Amarillo, a pleasing bitterness. Wish there was more. Good mouthfeel.

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2009
(33cl bottle) Hazy, golden colour with a huge blonde foamy head. Yeasty and slightly sweet malty aroma with lemon-fruity and herbal, slightly flowery hoppy notes. Moderately bitter flavour, medium bodied, slightly fizzy carbonation. Malty base with fruity and slightly vinous side effects, combined with a present herbal and slightly floral hop character; almost dry malty, subtle fruity and herbal hoppy finish with a rather harsh bitterness in the aftertaste. Lacks balance but is still pretty likeable and hops orientated, at least by Belgian standards (08.III.09).

JoeMcPhee (8569) - 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.
