Rastacouere (6154) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 27, 2013
A gentle haze punctuate this straight golden ale which develops a towering frothy, dense white foam. Resinous and fairly green, herbal nose delves into the spicy, bready yeastiness to raise up a chivey, accentuated spicy profile. Not as fresh as I should have drank it, but I can see how the mostly faded dry-hopping must have been strongly flowery and resinous earlier on. At this mature stage (probably closing on 1-yr old), the yeast is fairly present though fortunately not stealing the show from the hops and the malt remains just gently cerealic and on the pale, bready side of the spectrum. This makes for a straightforward oiffering that does not necessarily strive for balance, but rather focuses on hops and I can see how enjoyable that must be for variety’s sake in Belgium. Fairly dry, yet convincingly warm and bold for a 6% offering, offering a relatively dense texture presumably thanks to the non-filtration and smallish, tighter than average bubbles. Hop-forward indeed despite having several months under its belt (BB Apr. 2014). Pretty good, though at this stage, it’s stronger on bitterness than aromas.

Lore (1362) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 3, 2015
hazy orange colour, huge, dense, long lasting off-white head; aroma of grapefruity notes, grass, some caramel and fruitiness; well-balanced, though a bit one-dimensional bittersweet taste with some fruitiness; correct IPA, but nothing really special

fitwitchik (389) - USA - MAR 29, 2015
Poured a cloudy slight golden orange with probably the largest pillow top head I have seen in the past 4 years of brew consumption. Aroma is ionic Belgian yeast with a ton of hops. Flavor is crisp bitterness. Grassy hops of a barnyard. Highly carbonated. Fresh. Dry bitter finish. Sucker for a authentic Belgian IPA. Very nice.

Une couleur ambrée trouble la mousse est blanche et tiens normalement Au nez on va sentir des odeurs assez herbacé (normal pour une IPA) En bouche le goût ne reste pas longtemps (dommage) mais on sent une bonne amertume Une bonne IPA mais j'en connais des meilleurs

zacgillbanks (2888) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle from The Bottle Shop, Brugge, Belgium. Murky orange brown coloured with an earthy fruity, citrus flavour pine notes and a spicy, creamy zesty finish. Very nice, but more like an English IPA rather than American.
