Slighty hazy amber with a large head. Aroma of hops, yeast, malt and notes of grass. The same in the taste. Not bad but not that exciting either.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 66 cl thanks to Sebastian. Intense and proudly orange and pale, great foam not invasive, many bubbles, with high persistence. Complex aroma in which the orange peel dominates, without overriding the classic, fresh and pleasant Centennial fruit (grapes, citrus, pineapple) character still. Full of oranges, a little spicy squeeze, yeasty notes. Very rich medium to full body, maybe even difficult to have, but so delicious. Citrus is the main impact, dough and yeast after, in the end malty, definitely malty, the almost high carbonation isn’t a problem really. Finish is chewy, long-lasting, . Despite the definition of Belgian IPA in the collective imagination, from which one could expect to annoying soon, this beer is refreshing. At last a really good Belgian IPA, another world comparing to Shark Pants, Raging Bitch and similar.
