An American style IPA fermented with a Belgian yeast. The hops used add a fresh grassy character that gives way to soft floral notes. The natural Belgian yeast creates unique aromatics with a slightly pungent undertone.

sir__v (1761) - Lille, FRANCE - JUL 3, 2015
On tap @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels - BE. Color: clear blond beer with small carbonation and medium white foam. Smell: domination of hops, with grassy and floral notes. Not so fruity beer. Taste: very drinkable and good balance between hops and malt. Good hoppy taste, grassy and nice floral finish. Small mango finish. Aftertaste: wet bitterness! Great IPA!

Swaroga (1954) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2015
The beer has a distinctive aroma of freshly cut grass, basil and zest. The flavor is the same. Overall refreshing and has a delicate bitterness to it. Very soft one for an IPA which is not bad. I enjoyed it.

asheft (2897) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle. Pungent onion, strawberry, and sweet celery aroma in front of sweet pilsner malt and faint, pepper and clove phenolic accents. Murky gold under a persistent, lacy white cover. Flavour is refreshing strawberry and grapefruit peel hops with medium woody bitterness and a sugary malt backbone. Delicate and well balanced. Peppery phenolics are very subtle and complement the bitterness. Medium light body, medium carbonation, crisp and dry.

Top notch Belgian IPA from Bellwoods. Cloudy apricot pour with bubblegum and Belgian spices on the nose. Big blast of lemony hops, pepper, wild flowers, Belgian yeast and more bubblegum. Crisp and beautiful.
