MannyGoldberg (156) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle at Bier Circus, Brussels- 6th Nov 2013. Thanks to Tsjomme for the recommendation. Nose is hugely floral with tangerine and orange note. Taste is grassy with loads of citrus hops built on a great malt base. Inhabits a very different space to US or UK style IPAs. Loved it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2013 Sweet, flowery, mild, and a medium body. Light golden color. Small head. Tried at the Bruges bierfest in 2012 with Jess and Dave. Tried again in 2013 in Nijmegen. There is a great deal of hops in this beer as well.

Wspaniale pachnace chmielami przerorznego typu. Spore zmetnienie, mazi jest wiele. Piana takze obszerna i niebywale trwala. Rzetelne IPA z Belgijskiego mikro browaru. Polecam

dEnk (3485) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2012 Bottle @ drbm. Aroma is fruity floral hops, some citrus. Flavour is quite bitter, very fruity, long lingering. Nice one. EDIT: Had a very fresh bottle, description still matches, but DAMN, it was soooo much better, we all know it, but this was one of my personal prime examples. Awesome beer: +.8

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2013 15 cl. draft sampled @ Bruges Beer Festival 2012: hazy citrus with a lovely, very creamy head, smell is American hops galore, flowers, citrus incl. sweet lemon, fruity, taste is bitter lovely full American hops coupled with some lovely sweet yeast, fruity with a touch of white grapes, flowers, touch of grass/herbal somewhere in the back, smooth & creamy – proof that Belgians can make amazing, tad original IPA’s if proof were for some odd reason needed /// had this one a couple of more times, wonderful beer, will probably rate it higher when I try it properly again

Hazy bright yellow colour. Intense aroma of cirusy hop. Flavour is clean, hoppy and a little bit sharp. Very pleasant degree of bitterness.

bartlebier (1195) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2013
Last summer 2012, 33cl+66cl bottles. (Rating after meeting brewer @BBF 2013-II). My go-to beer for the summer, sitting by the river. A prime example of Belgian hop+yeast confidence to produce a truly palate-smacking dry and grassy Belgian IPA, which should become a new category after this beer. Very cloudy and yeast-creamy despite its cleansing bitterness.
