jerohen (2058) - Bussum, - MAY 25, 2012
Bottled from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Hazy golden colored, lasting white head. Very strong aroma of hops, very fresh, citrus, flowery, some grapefruit, very nice. Mainly hops in flavor, very bitter, bone dry finish. As mentioned in the commercial description: pure hops. Unfortunately, not much else is going on. I’m surprised by the (relatively) high rating, it seems to be a very simple IPA.

asheft (2672) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
[bottle; thanks, sebletitje!] Fresh pineapple and faintly toasty caramel aroma with rustic, woody Belgian yeast character and faint stone fruit. Slightly hazy bronze under an eternal, lacy, meringue cover. Excellently balanced flavour of pineapple and strawberry hops with assertive hops bitterness all backed up by sweet, base malt. Faint peppery Belgian yeast character dries out the flavour and makes the bitterness woody. Medium light body, medium high carbonation, crisp and refreshing.

Lore (1373) - 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 (390) - 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
