3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells citrus and orange. Tastes orange and a bit flat. Bit too sweet for an ipa. Dry texture, medium body and a low carbo. Pretty long bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ the brewpub, Leuven. Seasonal IPA. Pours murky yellow with a small, creamy white head. Aroma has grass, grapefruit, light citrus, some yeast. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good bitterness, Sorachi bubblegum, pear, grapefruit, citrus. Light wheaty graininess to it. Some mild yeasty notes. Fine, quite bitter finish. Again, Sorachi kinda likes Belgian yeast.

22/10/2011 on tap @ Domus (2011-576)
Very slightly clouded amber beer, solid creamy white head, stable and pretty adhesive. Aroma: pretty fruity, peaches, some exotic fruits. MF: soft carbon, full body. Taste: very fruity, passion fruits, sweet malts, citrus touches, yoghurt, bit cheesy. Aftertaste: bitter, little chemical, fruity, peaches, some pineapple. Reminds me more of a pale ale (like Sierra Nevada’s) than an IPA, but still a very good and balanced beer.

25 cL glass at Domus in Leuven. Poured into a Domus flute glass. Dark amber, with a very good head on it. Light hops aroma. Smooth and mildly bitter. Worth trying but not exceptional.
