Wow. Thick white head dissipates into big whipped cream like lumps on top of the golden body. The yeast spice fills in perfectly the gap between when the light maltiness fades and the hops kick in. It’s like a top american double IPA blended with a standard tripel. Yeast spiciness complements the aggressive hoppiness very well. Hopefully the other belgian brewers start to experiment like this, if so, it will be a good time to be a beer drinker.

Draft @Bierhuyske. Aroma is a bit sour, bit like cleaning product, don’t like it. Taste light bitterness

Backlog, tried the bottled version a number of times, always in 75cl. Simply a fantastic beer, right up there with xx-bitter as a favourite "old-world" hop beer. Hard to get around here though.

0,3l Flasche. Hellgelbes Bier mit heller Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Gras und Früchten. Im Geschmack exotisch fruchtig, grasig und angenehm hopfig. Tolles Bier!

More sour than bitter, but also with a nice caramel softness, Big mouthfeel but it’s not a beer with a long finish. Nice though to try the Belgium take on the IPA as it were. Pleasant but needs to be had with some kind of food accompany in my opinion that would help it carry and compliment more.

Slightly hazy golden beer with a nice white head. high carbonation. A beer like you wouldn’t expect from La Chouffe. Entirely different from what they make in their normal chouffe, the McChouffe or their other specials. It says hops on the label and that is exactly what you get. Hops in the aroma and hops in the tast, with a long dry finish. A beer I like, definitely the best Chouffe I’ve had.

0,33l bottle. Golden color with some lacing. Aroma is hops with fruits and spices. Taste is medium bitter with fruits. Full body. It’s rather unique beer, very interesting.

It’s can be very nice to both hop aroma, taste. It is finished in taste with the impact fairly moderate alcohol and hop feeling spreads through a lot of mouth in a mouth.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2014 Cannot compete with the traditional IPAs but still a good beer. Quite good strength too
