3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear golden colour, creamy white head. Fruity-hoppy nose. Malty background with lots of rather dry citrusy hops. Not as citrusy as other IPAs, the emphasis seems to be on dry and slightly resiny hops. Still very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours golden with a sligt haze - wee impurities - and a creamy and lacing off-white head. Aroma is citrusy and peachy. Medium body, sweet fruits and again peaches with a vague yeasty edge. Quite some warming alcohol in the finish and a grapefruitish hoppy astringency. Belgian style IPAs are never gonna be a favourite of mine, but this is far from the worst. 150410

Smells like a Tripel with a whole lot of hops! Citrus, fruit flavours along with the belgian yeast. Great taste, nice mix of fruity, citrus hops and the unmistakable belgian character. Very smooth and drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very attractive deep amber, white head. The aroma is citrus up front, pepper, yeasty. The flavor is caramel, malty, citrus, peppery and spicy. The finish is both spicy, and pine needles. Meduium/thick in body. Interesting beer, it surprises at each stage. It truly is a fusion of a belgian and an IPA. Very enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle served in a Duvel tulip. Pours crystal clear amber with an inch of eggshell head. The nose is grassy, grapefruit rind, slightly phenolic and tart, and a hint of sweetness. I notice one thing as soon as the beer hits my tongue: bitter. The label says it is 60 IBUs but it seems much higher, more like 100. Citrus and grass are the standout flavors with something that I identify as glue as well as a touch of banana. The bitterness comes across as very harsh. I believe it is fairly well made but certainly isn’t for my palate.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber/orange, nice looking white head, lots of lacing. Hops, pine and some subtle peach notes on both the nose and tongue. Finish is sweet, but not cloying and a touch dry. I really liked this one !
