3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Surprised to see an American Red Indian on the label of this Belgian IPA: I guess it’s because of the American hops used in the brew.
Anyway I had a glass of this at the 2014 Brugge Beer Festival and I really enjoyed it.
Deep blond to golden in body with a white-ish head.
The nose had a citrus lead with some sweeter fruit esters too.
Taste wise it was again on the citrus side but not as pronounced as in the aroma. The lemon flavour being subdued by a mild maltiness and yeast hint.
Good bitter finish to each sip: a good and balanced IPA, American or not.
