Tselloufc88 (130) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle from The Bottle Shop, Brugge. Looking forward to this one! A Belgian IPA based on an American IPA? Interesting! Hazy orange in colour, clean white head. Aroma is of citrus and peach, some pine hanging around. Smells like it’s from California! Taste is tropical fruits, juicy peach and citrus but not as bitter as you’d expect. Smooth and a nice spiciness with some sourness in the finish. Really tasty and interesting. The fact it’s only 6% compared to your average west coast IPA is a very welcome bonus. Brilliantly done.

Habanero (2615) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy amber with a large, lacing off-white head. Aroma of citrus, peach, caramel and piney notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and pleasent bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb.A very nice IPA.

corkyrory66 (573) - BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2014
Bière de 6 % abv, contenant 5 houblons dont une part est travaillée en dryhopping. Couleur ambre moyen tendant au roux clair. Léger voile de levure. Bulles moyennes peu nombreuses. Mousse beige clair qui tient bien à 3 mm. Arômes de pamplemousse rose, reine-claude, malt clair, pointe de réglisse. 1ère bouche assez structurée sur des agrumes, des fruits blancs, pointe d’anis. Arrière-bouche sur un houblon fleuri (Nugget) et un amer (Simcoe). 2ème sur de l’orange sanguine, citron vert, pointe de grenade. Arrière-bouche assez équilibrée. 3ème bouche sur une délicieuse combinaison d’agrumes et houblons (il y aussi du Perle, du Sterling et du Zeus). Arrière-bouche maintenant à l’équilibre, avec de la fraîcheur. La longueur ouvre les saveurs sur un superbe panel de fruits. La levure est fine et complexe, très belle ligne. L’alcoool est étonamment apte à développer les saveurs. La finale se calcule à l’aune de l’amertume mais aussi de la complexité. CONCLUSION : une grande ipa où l’harmonie des houblons a été obtenue, dans un produit final complexe et vraiment sympathique.

EddyBeer1 (876) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2014
Orange voilée-trouble, effervescence forte de visu, moyenne au palais, petits sédiments en suspension, col beige clair abondant et nuageux. Les malts laissent assez vite la place aux houblons (cinq selon l’étiquette) qui donnent une bonne amertume qui laisse de la place à un fruité d’oranges et de pêches, bon équilibre. Une bonne IPA à la belge...

BeerBaboon (1558) - FINLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Olut kaatuu lasiin amberina ja sakkaisena muodostaen valkoisen vaahdon. Tuoksu on makean hedelmäinen, puinen ja karamellinen. Maku on makeahko, keskikatkera, puinen ja hieman sitruksinen.

Fin (7409) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Gent, consumed at home on Thursday 13th February 2014. Mid amber a touch hazy, a slim filmy white head. Nice citrussy flavour, soft in mouth, a good bittersweet finish, little bit of polish comes through but not in a bad way, actually really smooth and soft. Tangy, the strength shows a little but again not in a bad way, like this, actually its only 6%. A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 3.6
