Nice! Clear deep amber with a small but persistent creamy head. Medium carbonation. The alcohol is well hidden. Flavor is dominated by the hops and has some licorice frapefuit and resin. Dry bitter finish that’s on the verge of being harsh. A true ipa. Well brewed.

Dark amber color fine white head fruity nose. Aroma of syrupy malts hints of caramel and orange peel, strong hops presence with lots of resins. Complex taste intense bitter finish with fruity overtones and rum, reminded me of Kwak. Excellent and lovely slow-sipper.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a fluffy white head, malty aroma with plenty of hops and some fruit, the taste is light with some bitterness but some sweetness also comes through, with a dry short finish.

The Belgian funk works surprisingly well with the fruity hops. Assertive yeast - banana, spice - with a trace of booze. Cloudy orange with good white head. Drinkable and different.

Excellent IPA with big but short bitter taste at the end. Belgian tastes were hidden but some sweet, fruity notes were sensible. Very, very good beer.

A solid imperial IPA. The belgian qualities are outstanding. Lots of banana, some spice and bubblegum. The hops are spicy and the finish is surprisingly dry. Orange and transparent.

From local supermarket (AH) in Mestreech. Clear amber color with average-sized white head. Aroma is fruity, spicy and hoppy. Flavour is very rich in hops, and spieces. Alcohol is well hidden. Nicely composed brew.
