Bottle 0.33l from Marlou Zonhoven. Pours a hazy yellow with a solid white head. Aroma is yeasty, citrus, grass. Taste is yeasty, citrus, hops, medium bitterness, dry. Not what I consider an IPA more like the Duvel Triple Hop but tastier.

Een leuke IPA, was wel een beetje verrast. Een goede aroma en een diep doordringende bittere smaak.

330cc bottle. Pours dark blond with creamy white head. Cloudy with lots of floating yeast. Nice resin and citrus hop aromas. Taste is hoppy resin and citrus with caramel sweet background. Not very bitter, not very hoppy almost not very IPA, but a very pleasant beer.

Mainuh_man (262) - 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 (5453) - Leuven, BELGIUM - 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)
