3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
5.6% 330ml bottle into a tumbler. Pours a clear golden colour with light carbonation and a quickly dissipating head. Floral notes and citrus aroma after the pour with the suggestion of a hoppy punch forthcoming. Doesn’t deliver the kind of hoppiness I was anticipating; more light and crisp with a bit of a bitter back end. Quite pleasant!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear orange color with small and quickly dissappearing head. Powerful aroma of bunch of citrus: passionfruit, mango and grapefruit. Incredible! Taste is also citrus and completed by malty sweetness perfectly balanced strong bitterness. Finish is long and really bitter. Fantastic example of IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Bottle at home. Bought in ’Geers’ Oostakker that day, so I suppose it was the 5,6% edition. Since the 6% edition is retired. Shared with Mathieu87.
Appearance: clear blonde beer, small white stable head.
Nose: spices, apples, grapefruit, florar, amazing IPA nose, some mango.
Taste: a rather uni dimensional taste, bitterness is nice and long lasting, but I preferred the scent of this IPA. Very dry when drinking.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Very thick, dense, off-white to yellow head over orange-shot golden beer, collar hardly diminishing. Exotic fruit, lunaria, grapes and grapefruit, blocked a bit by the thick head; bit of solvent. Bitter, and mildly fruity flavours. Grapes, nashua pear, pitaya especially. Surprising secundary flavour, dominated by fresh pale malts. Hops arriving in the finish. Very spritzy, light body, slighly slick. Not necessarily better than bottled, but interesting.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
A magnificent IPA, best from the tap as I have found that the bottle conveys a more metallic taste to the beer than I like. A lively, hoppy taste that goes down very well, but perhaps for a seasoned palate rather than a first time drinker since the slightly higher alcohol content than regular beers takes its toll after a few!
