Hazy blond, big white head. Nose is fruity, hoppy, citric and tropical fruits. Carbon is soft, body medium. Taste is sweet and bitter. Palate is overhelmed by tropical fruits like lychees, pinneaple, grapefruits but also hints of quina and lemon peel can be discovered. Bitter finish. B@H

Mainuh_man (238) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2014
0.33L bottle. Hazy yellow with a frothy off-white head. Really nice hop aroma, both piney and citrusy. Hop flavor dominates as well. Mild sweet at beginning going to nice hop flavor, floral and piney, finishing with a medium bitternes. Light body with a thin mouth feel and sharp carbonation. Overall, the beer is all about hops, good aroma, less so on the flavor.

erickok (3794) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 2, 2014
Blondine ipa, eh ? Well quite golden for a Blondine. So ipa then? Well quite modestly hopped for that... I do enjoy the modern hop, quite spruce like, but a bit simple. And is that Belgian yeast? Hmm. Medium bitter isn’t too bad at this solid carbonation level. Tasty Belgian interpretation of an ipa. Or rather a tasty American hop variety of a Belgian blonde ale. (33cl stubby bottle from De Hopduvel)

Moravius (599) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2014
Flasche von Hopduvel, Gent, neun Monate daheim gelagert. - Orangegelb, trüb, zahllose Hefeklümpchen im Glas. - Nase leicht süßlich, hefig, ähnlich einem Tripel; dazu IPA-typisch Mango u.a. tropische Frucht. - Im Antrunk fruchtige Süße, hefig. Schaumig rezent. Im Abgang herb und leicht säuerlich, deutlich alkoholisch. Etwas stärkerer bitterer Nachtrunk (Pampelmusenschale). - Ein IPA stelle ich mir doch etwas anders vor - das ist eher ein etwas stärker gehopftes Tripel. Hat mich nicht so recht überzeugt.

Thx! to & courtesy of ST247. 33 cl. bottle sampled @ ’t Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Lighter orange, creamy white head. Nose is pretty weak, mainly picking up some very soft, light white bread yeast, sweet apples, light sweet hops. Taste of applesauce & touch alcohol, lighter side of white sugar sweet, faint herbs, light white bread yeast, applesauce dominates. Body is lightly yeast. Another BE brew where the term IPA really shouldn’t have been used, pretty dull otherwise, nothing wrong it necessarily except that it felt slightly boozy.
